SerializerWriter.Write Method (FixedDocumentSequence)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

When overridden in a derived class, synchronously writes a given FixedDocumentSequence to the serialization Stream.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Documents.Serialization
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public abstract void Write(
	FixedDocumentSequence fixedDocumentSequence


Type: System.Windows.Documents.FixedDocumentSequence

The document sequence that defines the content to write to the serialization Stream.

The output Stream of the write operation is normally specified as a parameter to the constructor of the derived class that implements SerializerWriter.

The following example shows the use of the Write(DocumentPaginator, PrintTicket) method to serialize a flow document to an output file.

// Create a SerializerProvider for accessing plug-in serializers.
SerializerProvider serializerProvider = new SerializerProvider();

// Locate the serializer that matches the fileName extension.
SerializerDescriptor selectedPlugIn = null;
foreach ( SerializerDescriptor serializerDescriptor in
                serializerProvider.InstalledSerializers )
    if ( serializerDescriptor.IsLoadable &&
         fileName.EndsWith(serializerDescriptor.DefaultFileExtension) )
    {   // The plug-in serializer and fileName extensions match.
        selectedPlugIn = serializerDescriptor;
        break; // foreach

// If a match for a plug-in serializer was found,
// use it to output and store the document.
if (selectedPlugIn != null)
    Stream package = File.Create(fileName);
    SerializerWriter serializerWriter =
    IDocumentPaginatorSource idoc =
        flowDocument as IDocumentPaginatorSource;
    serializerWriter.Write(idoc.DocumentPaginator, null);
    return true;
