XmlWriterSettings.ConformanceLevel Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets the level of conformance which the XmlWriter complies with.

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

public ConformanceLevel ConformanceLevel { get; set; }
/** @property */
public ConformanceLevel get_ConformanceLevel ()

/** @property */
public void set_ConformanceLevel (ConformanceLevel value)

public function get ConformanceLevel () : ConformanceLevel

public function set ConformanceLevel (value : ConformanceLevel)

Property Value

One of the ConformanceLevel values. The default is ConformanceLevel.Document.

If the writer detects any information items that would violate the specified level of conformance, it throws an exception. In some cases, the writer automatically corrects the conformance error. For example, the writer closes an unclosed attribute without throwing an exception.

For more information, see Data Conformance and the XmlWriter.

The following example writes an XML fragment to a memory stream.

XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment;
settings.CloseOutput = false;

// Create the XmlWriter object and write some content.
MemoryStream strm = new MemoryStream();
XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(strm, settings);
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "1-456-ab");
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "2-36-00a");
writer.Flush();
writer.Close();

// Do additonal processing on the stream.
