The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to write attributes on a new line.

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

Public Property NewLineOnAttributes As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

System_CAPS_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.

Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = 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>
