XElement.Save Method (String)
Serialize this element to a file.
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
The serialized XML will be indented. All insignificant white space will be removed, and additional white space will be added so that the XML will be properly indented. The behavior of this method is that insignificant white space nodes in the XML tree will not be preserved.
If you want to control white space, use the overload of Save that allows you to specify SaveOptions as a parameter. For more information, see Preserving White Space while Loading or Parsing XML and Preserving White Space While Serializing.
The following example creates an XElement, saves the document to a file, and then prints the file to the console.
XElement root = new XElement("Root", new XElement("Child", "child content") ); root.Save("Root.xml"); string str = File.ReadAllText("Root.xml"); Console.WriteLine(str);
This example produces the following output:
Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
