XmlWriter.WriteEndAttribute Method

July 28, 2014

When overridden in a derived class, closes the previous WriteStartAttribute call.

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

public abstract void WriteEndAttribute()

If you call WriteStartAttribute, you can close the attribute with this method.

You can also close the attribute by calling WriteStartAttribute again, calling WriteAttributeString, or calling WriteEndElement.

NoteNote:

When you use the XmlWriter methods to output XML, the elements and attributes will not be written until you call the Close method.



StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();

Double price = 9.95;
DateTime date = new DateTime(2004, 5, 20);

using (XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(output))
{
    writer.WriteStartElement("book");
    writer.WriteStartAttribute("pub-date");
    writer.WriteValue(date);
    writer.WriteEndAttribute();

    writer.WriteStartElement("price");
    writer.WriteValue(price);
    writer.WriteEndElement();

    writer.WriteEndElement();
    writer.Flush();
}

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
