XamlWriter.Save Method (Object, XmlWriter)

Saves XAML information as the source for a provided XmlWriter object. The output of the XmlWriter can then be used to serialize the provided object and its properties.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public static void Save(
	Object obj,
	XmlWriter xmlWriter


Type: System.Object
The element to be serialized. Typically, this is the root element of a page or application.
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter
Writer to use to write the serialized XAML information.


obj or xmlWriter is null.


The application is not running in full trust.

The serialization enabled by this method has a series of limitations. This is because the serialization enabled is explicitly run-time, and does not have access to possible design-time information in the original XAML (if any). For details, see Serialization Limitations of XamlWriter.Save.

Calling Save is not permitted when running in partial trust.
