Atom10FeedFormatter Class

A class that serializes a SyndicationFeed instance to and from Atom 1.0 format.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Syndication
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public class Atom10FeedFormatter : SyndicationFeedFormatter, 

The Atom10FeedFormatter type exposes the following members.

Public methodAtom10FeedFormatter()Creates a new instance of the Atom10FeedFormatter class.
Public methodAtom10FeedFormatter(SyndicationFeed)Creates a new instance of the Atom10FeedFormatter class with the specified SyndicationFeed instance.
Public methodAtom10FeedFormatter(Type)Creates a new instance of the Atom10FeedFormatter class.

Public propertyFeedGets the SyndicationFeed associated with the formatter. (Inherited from SyndicationFeedFormatter.)
Protected propertyFeedTypeThe instance derived from SyndicationFeed that is associated with the Atom10FeedFormatter instance.
Public propertyPreserveAttributeExtensionsGets and sets a value that specifies whether to preserve attribute extensions during serialization.
Public propertyPreserveElementExtensionsGets and sets a value that specifies whether to preserve element extensions during serialization.
Public propertyVersionGets the syndication version used by the formatter. (Overrides SyndicationFeedFormatter.Version.)

Public methodCanReadVerifies whether the specified XmlReader contains a valid Atom 1.0 syndication feed. (Overrides SyndicationFeedFormatter.CanRead(XmlReader).)
Protected methodCreateFeedInstanceCreates a new SyndicationFeed. (Overrides SyndicationFeedFormatter.CreateFeedInstance().)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadFromReads an Atom 1.0 syndication feed from the specified XmlReader instance. (Overrides SyndicationFeedFormatter.ReadFrom(XmlReader).)
Protected methodReadItemReads a syndication item from XmlReader instance using the SyndicationFeed instance.
Protected methodReadItemsReads in a collection of SyndicationItem instances from the specified XmlReader.
Protected methodSetFeedAssociates a SyndicationFeed instance with the SyndicationFeedFormatter. (Inherited from SyndicationFeedFormatter.)
Public methodToStringGets a string representation of the SyndicationFeedFormatter instance. (Inherited from SyndicationFeedFormatter.)
Protected methodWriteItemWrites the specified SyndicationItem instance to the specified XmlWriter.
Protected methodWriteItemsWrites a collection of SyndicationItem instances to the specified XmlWriter.
Public methodWriteToWrites the SyndicationFeed associated with the Atom10FeedFormatter to the specified XmlWriter. (Overrides SyndicationFeedFormatter.WriteTo(XmlWriter).)

Use this class to serialize instances of SyndicationFeed and to create instances of SyndicationFeed from XML documents that represent Atom1.0 feeds. If you have derived a class from SyndicationFeed and want to serialize it, use the Atom10FeedFormatter<TSyndicationFeed> formatter.


The Atom 1.0 specification allows for fractional seconds to be specified in any of its date constructs. When serializing and deserializing, the implementation ignores the fractional seconds.

The following code shows how to create a SyndicationFeed and serialize it to Atom 1.0.

SyndicationFeed feed = new SyndicationFeed("Test Feed", "This is a test feed", new Uri("http://Contoso/testfeed"), "TestFeedID", DateTime.Now);
SyndicationItem item = new SyndicationItem("Test Item", "This is the content for Test Item", new Uri("http://localhost/ItemOne"), "TestItemID", DateTime.Now);

List<SyndicationItem> items = new List<SyndicationItem>();
feed.Items = items;

XmlWriter atomWriter = XmlWriter.Create("Atom.xml");
Atom10FeedFormatter atomFormatter = new Atom10FeedFormatter(feed);
