XamlWriter.Save Method (Object, XmlWriter)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

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.

Exception Condition

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.
