XmlWriter.Flush Method

When overridden in a derived class, flushes whatever is in the buffer to the underlying streams and also flushes the underlying stream.

Namespace: System.Xml
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

public abstract void Flush ()
public abstract void Flush ()
public abstract function Flush ()

This is called instead of Close when you want to write more to the underlying stream without losing what is still in the buffer.

The following example writes two XML fragments.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {
 
     // Create an XmlWriter to write XML fragments.
     XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
     settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment;
     settings.Indent = true;
     XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings);
     
     // Write an XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("book");
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Pride And Prejudice");
     writer.WriteEndElement();
     writer.Flush();

     // Write another XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("cd");
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Americana");
     writer.WriteEndElement();
     writer.Flush();  

     // Close the writer.
     writer.Close();
  }
}
