The TextWriter to which you want to write. The XmlWriter writes XML 1.0 text syntax and appends it to the specified TextWriter.

An XmlWriter object.

An XmlWriterSettings object with default settings is used to create the writer. If you wish to specify the features to support on the created writer, use the overload that takes an XmlWriterSettings object as one of its arguments, and pass in a XmlWriterSettings object with the correct settings.

The following example creates a writer that outputs to the console.


        using (XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out))
        {
            writer.WriteStartElement("book");
            writer.WriteElementString("price", "19.95");
            writer.WriteEndElement();
            writer.Flush();
        }
