IXmlSerializable.WriteXml Method (XmlWriter)

 

Converts an object into its XML representation.

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

Sub WriteXml (
	writer As XmlWriter
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

The XmlWriter stream to which the object is serialized.

The WriteXml implementation you provide should write out the XML representation of the object. The framework writes a wrapper element and positions the XML writer after its start. Your implementation may write its contents, including child elements. The framework then closes the wrapper element.

Write sufficient information to the XmlWriter stream to allow the ReadXml method to reconstitute your object.

For example, if your object state includes an array variable, be sure to write the length of the array, or use a parent element to contain the elements that describe the array values, so that you know how many values to read when the object is reconstituted.

The following example illustrates an implementation of the WriteXml method.
