XmlWriter.WriteEndElement Method

When overridden in a derived class, closes one element and pops the corresponding namespace scope.

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

public abstract void WriteEndElement ()
public abstract void WriteEndElement ()
public abstract function WriteEndElement ()

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

This results in an invalid XML document.

If the element contains no content, a short end tag "/>" is written; otherwise, a full end tag is written.

The following example uses the WriteEndElement and the WriteFullEndElement methods.

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

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {
  
     // Create a writer to write XML to the console.
     XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
     settings.Indent = true;
     XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings);

     // Write the root element.
     writer.WriteStartElement("order");

     // Write an element with attributes.
     writer.WriteStartElement("item");
     writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2/19/01");
     writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "136A5");

     // Write a full end element. Because this element has no
     // content, calling WriteEndElement would have written a
     // short end tag '/>'.
     writer.WriteFullEndElement();

     writer.WriteEndElement();
             
     // Write the XML to file and close the writer
     writer.Close();  
  }
}
