Atom10ItemFormatter Class

Atom10ItemFormatter Class

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

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

Public Class Atom10ItemFormatter _
	Inherits SyndicationItemFormatter _
	Implements IXmlSerializable
Dim instance As Atom10ItemFormatter

Use this class to serialize instances of SyndicationItem and to create an instance of SyndicationItem from an XML document that contains an Atom 1.0 entry. If you have derived a class from SyndicationItem and want to serialize it, use the Atom10ItemFormatter(Of TSyndicationItem) formatter instead.


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

The following code shows how to create a SyndicationItem instance and serialize it.

Dim item As SyndicationItem = New SyndicationItem("Test Item", "This is the content for Test Item", New Uri("http:'localhost/ItemOne"), "TestItemID", DateTime.Now)

item.Links.Add(New SyndicationLink(New Uri("http:'someuri"), "alternate", "MyItemLink", "text/html", 100))
item.PublishDate = New DateTime(1968, 2, 23)
item.LastUpdatedTime = DateTime.Today
item.SourceFeed = New SyndicationFeed()
item.Summary = New TextSyndicationContent("This the item summary")

Dim atomWriter As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create("AtomItem.xml")
Dim formatter As Atom10ItemFormatter = New Atom10ItemFormatter(item)

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
