XmlNode.WriteContentTo Method

When overridden in a derived class, saves all the child nodes of the node to the specified XmlWriter.

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

public abstract void WriteContentTo(
	XmlWriter w
)

Parameters

w
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

The XmlWriter to which you want to save.

This method is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM). It is functionally equivalent to the InnerXml property.

The following example displays the contents of the root node to the console.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {

    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.LoadXml("<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples' bk:ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>" +
                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                "</book>");

    XmlNode root = doc.FirstChild;

    // Because WriteContentTo saves only the child nodes of the node 
    // to the writer none of the attributes are displayed.
    Console.WriteLine("Display the contents of the node...");
    XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(Console.Out);
    writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
    root.WriteContentTo(writer);

  }
}
#using <mscorlib.dll>
#using <System.Xml.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;

int main()
{
    XmlDocument* doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc->LoadXml(S"<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples' bk:ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>" 
                 S"<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" 
                 S"</book>");

    XmlNode* root = doc->FirstChild;

    // Because WriteContentTo saves only the child nodes of the node
    // to the writer none of the attributes are displayed.
    Console::WriteLine(S"Display the contents of the node...");
    XmlTextWriter* writer = new XmlTextWriter(Console::Out);
    writer->Formatting = Formatting::Indented;
    root->WriteContentTo(writer);
}
