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 null, a XmlWriterSettings with default settings is used.

An XmlWriter object.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The text value is null.

The following example writes out an XML string.

Dim settings As New XmlWriterSettings()
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = True
Dim sw As New StringWriter()

Using writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(sw, settings)
  writer.WriteStartElement("book")
  writer.WriteElementString("price", "19.95")
  writer.WriteEndElement()
  writer.Flush()

  Dim output As String = sw.ToString()
End Using
