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

static member Create : 
        output:Stream *
        settings:XmlWriterSettings -> XmlWriter

Parameters

output
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.

settings
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriterSettings

The XmlWriterSettings object used to configure the new XmlWriter instance. If this is null, a XmlWriterSettings with default settings is used.

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.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

An XmlWriter object.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The stream value is null.

XmlWriter always writes a Byte Order Mark (BOM) to the underlying data stream; however, some streams must not have a BOM. To omit the BOM, create a new XmlWriterSettings object and set the Encoding property to be a new UTF8Encoding object with the Boolean value in the constructor set to false.

The following example writes an XML fragment to a memory stream.
