Atom10FeedFormatter<TSyndicationFeed> Class

A class that serializes SyndicationFeed-derived classes to and from Atom 1.0 format.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Syndication
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel.Web (in System.ServiceModel.Web.dll)

public class Atom10FeedFormatter<TSyndicationFeed> : Atom10FeedFormatter 
where TSyndicationFeed : new(), SyndicationFeed

Type Parameters


The SyndicationFeed -derived type to serialize.

Use this class to serialize instances of SyndicationFeed-derived classes and to create instances of SyndicationFeed derived classes from XML documents that contain Atom 1.0 feeds. If you must serialize a SyndicationFeed instance, use the Atom10FeedFormatter formatter instead.


The Atom 1.0 specification allows for fractional seconds to be specified in any of its date constructs. When serializing and deserializing, the WCF implementation ignores the fractional seconds.

The following code shows how to create a SyndicationFeed-derived class and serialize it to Atom 1.0.

MySyndicationFeed feed = new MySyndicationFeed("Test Feed", "This is a test feed", new Uri("http://Contoso/testfeed"), "TestFeedID", DateTime.Now);
SyndicationItem item = new SyndicationItem("Test Item", "This is the content for Test Item", new Uri("http://localhost/ItemOne"), "TestItemID", DateTime.Now);

item.Links.Add(new SyndicationLink(new Uri("http://someuri"), "alternate", "MyItemLink", "text/html", 100));
item.PublishDate = new DateTime(1968, 2, 23);
item.LastUpdatedTime = DateTime.Today;
item.SourceFeed = feed;
item.Summary = new TextSyndicationContent("This the item summary");

List<SyndicationItem> items = new List<SyndicationItem>();
feed.Items = items;

XmlWriter atomWriter = XmlWriter.Create("Atom.xml");
Atom10FeedFormatter<MySyndicationFeed> atomFormatter = new Atom10FeedFormatter<MySyndicationFeed>(feed);

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
