XStreamingElement.WriteTo Method

Writes this streaming element to an XmlWriter.

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

public void WriteTo(
	XmlWriter writer
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

An XmlWriter into which this method will write.

The following example creates an XML tree using XStreamingElement. It then writes the streaming element to an XmlWriter.

XElement srcTree = new XElement("Root",
                       new XElement("Child", 1),
                       new XElement("Child", 2),
                       new XElement("Child", 3),
                       new XElement("Child", 4),
                       new XElement("Child", 5)
                   );

XStreamingElement dstTree = new XStreamingElement("NewRoot",
                        from el in srcTree.Elements()
                        where (int)el == 3
                        select new XElement("DifferentChild", (int)el)
                    );

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
XmlWriterSettings xws = new XmlWriterSettings();
xws.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
xws.Indent = true;

using (XmlWriter xw = XmlWriter.Create(sb, xws))
{
    dstTree.WriteTo(xw);
}
Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString());

This example produces the following output:

<NewRoot>
  <DifferentChild>3</DifferentChild>
</NewRoot>
