Save Method (String)

XStreamingElement.Save Method (String)

Serialize this streaming element to a file.

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

public void Save(
	string fileName
)

Parameters

fileName
Type: System.String
A String that contains the name of the file.

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 nodes in the XML tree will not be preserved.

If you want to control white space, use one of the overloads of Save that take SaveOptions as a parameter. For more information, see Preserving White Space while Loading or Parsing XML and Preserving White Space While Serializing.

The following example creates a streaming XML tree. It then serializes the streaming XML tree to a file.

XElement srcTree = new XElement("Root",
                       new XElement("Child", 1),
                       new XElement("Child", 2),
                       new XElement("Child", 3),
                       new XElement("Child", 4),
                       new XElement("Child", 5)
                   );

XStreamingElement dstTree = new XStreamingElement("NewRoot",
                        from el in srcTree.Elements()
                        where (int)el >= 3
                        select new XElement("DifferentChild", (int)el)
                    );

dstTree.Save("Test.xml");
Console.WriteLine(File.ReadAllText("Test.xml"));

This example produces the following output:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<NewRoot>
  <DifferentChild>3</DifferentChild>
  <DifferentChild>4</DifferentChild>
  <DifferentChild>5</DifferentChild>
</NewRoot>
