Rss20FeedFormatter Class

A class that serializes a SyndicationFeed instance to and from RSS 2.0 format.

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

public class Rss20FeedFormatter : SyndicationFeedFormatter, 

Use this class to serialize instances of SyndicationFeed and to create instances of SyndicationFeed from XML documents that represent RSS 2.0 feeds. If you have derived a class from SyndicationFeed and want to serialize it, use the Rss20FeedFormatter<TSyndicationFeed> formatter.

The following code shows how to create a SyndicationFeed and serialize it to RSS 2.0.

            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://Contoso/ItemOne"), "TestItemID", DateTime.Now);

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

            XmlWriter rssWriter = XmlWriter.Create("RSS.xml");
            Rss20FeedFormatter rssFormatter = new Rss20FeedFormatter(feed);
