System_CAPS_noteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlWriter instances by using the XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class to take advantage of new functionality.

This method does not escape special characters.

System_CAPS_security Security Note

The XmlTextWriter does not validate any data that is passed to the WriteRaw method. You should not pass arbitrary data to this method.

The following example writes a string using the WriteRaw method.

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

public class Sample
{
  public static void Main()
  {
     // Create a writer that outputs to the console.
     XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter (Console.Out);
     writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;

     // Write the root element.
     writer.WriteStartElement("Items");

     // Write a string using WriteRaw. Note that the special
     // characters are not escaped.
     writer.WriteStartElement("Item");
     writer.WriteString("Write unescaped text:  ");
     writer.WriteRaw("this & that");
     writer.WriteEndElement();

     // Write the same string using WriteString. Note that the 
     // special characters are escaped.
     writer.WriteStartElement("Item");
     writer.WriteString("Write the same string using WriteString:  ");
     writer.WriteString("this & that");
     writer.WriteEndElement();

     // Write the close tag for the root element.
     writer.WriteEndElement();

     // Write the XML to file and close the writer.
     writer.Close();  
  }

}
