XmlWriter.WriteFullEndElement 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 MustOverride Sub WriteFullEndElement

Exception Condition

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 method always writes the full end tag. This is useful when dealing with elements that must include a full end tag. For example, browsers expect HTML script blocks to be closed with "</script>".

For the asynchronous version of this method, see WriteFullEndElementAsync.

The following example uses the WriteEndElement and the WriteFullEndElement methods.

Option Explicit
Option Strict

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

Public Class Sample

  Public Shared Sub Main()

     ' Create a writer to write XML to the console.
     Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = new XmlWriterSettings()
     settings.Indent = true
     Dim writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings)

     ' Write the root element.

     ' Write an element with attributes.
     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 '/>'.


     ' Write the XML to file and close the writer

    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'Sample
