Writes this node to an XmlWriter.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

'Declaration
Public MustOverride Sub WriteTo ( _
	writer As XmlWriter _
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter
An XmlWriter into which this method will write.

You can use this method to write code that does a streaming transform of a very large document. For more information, see How to: Perform Streaming Transform of Large XML Documents in the .NET Framework documentation.

The following example creates an XmlWriter that writes to a StringBuilder. It then uses this method to write two XML trees to the writer.


Dim output As New StringBuilder
Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
Dim xws As XmlWriterSettings = New XmlWriterSettings()
xws.OmitXmlDeclaration = True
xws.Indent = True

Using xw = XmlWriter.Create(sb, xws)
    xw.WriteStartElement("Root")
    Dim child1 As XElement = <Child>
                                 <GrandChild>some content</GrandChild>
                             </Child>
    child1.WriteTo(xw)
    Dim child2 As XElement = <AnotherChild>
                                 <GrandChild>different content</GrandChild>
                             </AnotherChild>
    child2.WriteTo(xw)
    xw.WriteEndElement()
End Using

output.Append(sb.ToString())
output.Append(Environment.NewLine)

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString()
