XStreamingElement.Save Method (TextWriter)


Serialize this streaming element to a TextWriter.

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

Public Sub Save (
	textWriter As TextWriter


Type: System.IO.TextWriter

A TextWriter that the XStreamingElement will be written to.

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 source XML tree, then instantiates an XStreamingElement using a query on the source XML tree. It then writes the streaming element to a StringWriter.

                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> _

Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
dstTree.Save(New StringWriter(sb))

This example produces the following output:

                <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
