XDocument.Save Method (TextWriter)
Assemblies: System.Xml.XDocument (in System.Xml.XDocument.dll)
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 will not be preserved.
If you want to control white space, use the overload of Save that takes SaveOptions as a parameter. For more information, see Preserving White Space while Loading or Parsing XML and Preserving White Space While Serializing.
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); XDocument doc = new XDocument( new XElement("Root", new XElement("Child", "content") ) ); TextWriter tr = new StringWriter(sb); doc.Save(tr); Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString());
