public Stream BaseStream { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.IO.Stream

The stream to which the XmlTextWriter is writing or null if the XmlTextWriter was constructed using a TextWriter that does not inherit from the StreamWriter class.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlWriter instances by using the XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class to take advantage of new functionality.

If the writer was constructed using a TextWriter that is derived from the StreamWriter class, this property is equivalent to the StreamWriter.BaseStream property. If the writer was constructed using a Stream, this property returns the Stream passed to the constructor. If the writer was constructed using a file name, this property returns the Stream representing the file.
