XamlWriter.WriteNode Method (XamlReader)

.NET Framework (current version)

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

Performs switching based on node type from the XAML reader (XamlReader.NodeType) and calls the relevant Write method for the writer implementation.

Namespace:   System.Xaml
Assembly:  System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)

public void WriteNode(
	XamlReader reader


Type: System.Xaml.XamlReader

The reader to use for node determination.

Exception Condition

reader is null.


The default implementation encountered a XamlNodeType that is not in the default enumeration.

The WriteNode method is not a virtual method because it has practical implementation for all existing XamlNodeType values. Based on XamlNodeType, WriteNode calls into the Write virtual members that are dedicated to particular node types.

If you have an advanced XAML writing scenario that expands the XAML type system and XAML node stream concept so that new node types are defined, do not use WriteNode calls in your logic. You must instead provide your own alternative for node-type switching logic in the class or in virtual overrides.
