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

Public Sub Save (
	fileName As String


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 XML3 and Preserving White Space While Serializing1.

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

                Dim srcTree As XElement = _

Dim dstTree As XStreamingElement = New XStreamingElement("NewRoot", _
                        From el In srcTree.Elements() _
                        Where el.Value >= 3 _
                        Select <DifferentChild><%= el.Value %></DifferentChild> _


This example produces the following output:

                <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
