XmlWriterSettings.ConformanceLevel Property

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

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

Public Property ConformanceLevel As ConformanceLevel

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.ConformanceLevel
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 and code examples, see XML Data.

            settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = True
            settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment
            settings.CloseOutput = False

            ' Create the XmlWriter object and write some content.
            Dim strm As New MemoryStream()
            Using writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(strm, settings)
                writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "1-456-ab")
