Property Value

true to write attributes on individual lines; otherwise false. The default is false.
NoteNote:

This setting has no effect when the Indent property value is false.

When NewLineOnAttributes is set to true, each attribute is pre-pended with a new line and one extra level of indentation.

This property only applies to XmlWriter instances that output text content; otherwise, this setting is ignored.

The following example creates an XmlWriter that writes to an XML file and writes each attribute on a new line.

XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
settings.Indent = true;
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
settings.NewLineOnAttributes = true;
       
writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings);

writer.WriteStartElement("order");
writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "367A54");
writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2001-05-03");
writer.WriteElementString("price", "19.95");
writer.WriteEndElement();
	
writer.Flush();

The sample produces the following output:

<order
  orderID="367A54"
  date="2001-05-03">
  <price>19.95</price>
</order>
