XmlWriter.Create Method (Stream, XmlWriterSettings)
Assemblies: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
System.Xml.ReaderWriter (in System.Xml.ReaderWriter.dll)
- Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream to which you want to write. The XmlWriter writes XML 1.0 text syntax and appends it to the specified stream.
- Type: System.Xml.XmlWriterSettings
If the XmlWriter is being used with the Transform method, you should use the OutputSettings property to obtain an XmlWriterSettings object with the correct settings. This ensures that the created XmlWriter object has the correct output settings.
The following example writes an XML fragment to a memory stream.
XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings(); settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true; settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment; settings.CloseOutput = false; // Create the XmlWriter object and write some content. MemoryStream strm = new MemoryStream(); XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(strm, settings); writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "1-456-ab"); writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "2-36-00a"); writer.Flush(); writer.Close(); // Do additonal processing on the stream.
