The following example creates a LineString instance and uses AsGML() to return the GML description of the instance.

DECLARE @g geometry;
SET @g = geometry::STGeomFromText('LINESTRING(0 0, 0 1, 1 0)', 0)
SELECT @g.AsGml();

This method returns the description as a LineString instance.

<LineString xmlns="">
<posList>0 0 0 1 1 0</posList></LineString>
