XmlWriter.Flush Method ()

 

When overridden in a derived class, flushes whatever is in the buffer to the underlying streams and also flushes the underlying stream.

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

Public MustOverride Sub Flush

Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

An XmlWriter method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”

This is called instead of Close when you want to write more to the underlying stream without losing what is still in the buffer.

For the asynchronous version of this method, see FlushAsync.

The following example writes two XML fragments.

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

Public Class Sample

  Public Shared Sub Main()

     ' Create an XmlWriter to write XML fragments.
     Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = new XmlWriterSettings()
     settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment
     settings.Indent = true
     Dim writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings)

     ' Write an XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("book")
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Pride And Prejudice")
     writer.WriteEndElement()
     writer.Flush()

     ' Write another XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("cd")
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Americana")
     writer.WriteEndElement()
     writer.Flush()  

     'Close the writer.
     writer.Close()

  End Sub
End Class
