public char IndentChar { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Char
The character to use for indenting. The default is space.
NoteNote:

The XmlTextWriter allows you to set this property to any character. To ensure valid XML, you must specify a valid white space character, 0x9, 0x10, 0x13 or 0x20.

NoteNote:

In the .NET Framework version 2.0 release, the recommended practice is to create XmlWriter instances using the XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in this release. For more information, see Creating XML Writers.
