XmlWriter.Create Method (TextWriter, XmlWriterSettings)

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Creates a new XmlWriter instance using the TextWriter and XmlWriterSettings objects.

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

public static XmlWriter Create (
	TextWriter output,
	XmlWriterSettings settings
)
public static XmlWriter Create (
	TextWriter output, 
	XmlWriterSettings settings
)
public static function Create (
	output : TextWriter, 
	settings : XmlWriterSettings
) : XmlWriter

Parameters

output

The TextWriter to which you want to write. The XmlWriter writes XML 1.0 text syntax and appends it to the specified TextWriter.

settings

The XmlWriterSettings object used to configure the new XmlWriter instance. If this is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), 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

An XmlWriter object.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

The text value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The following example writes out an XML string.

XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();

using (XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(sw, settings)) {
  writer.WriteStartElement("book");
  writer.WriteElementString("price", "19.95");
  writer.WriteEndElement();
  writer.Flush();

  String output = sw.ToString();
}
