XmlDocument.WriteTo Method

Saves the XmlDocument node to the specified XmlWriter.

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

'Declaration
Public Overrides Sub WriteTo ( _
	w As XmlWriter _
)

Parameters

w
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

The XmlWriter to which you want to save.

This method is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM). It is functionally equivalent to the OuterXml property.

The XmlDeclaration.Encoding property determines the encoding that is written out. If the Encoding property does not have a value, the XmlDocument is written out without an encoding attribute.

The following example displays the document onscreen.

Public Shared Sub WriteXml(doc As XmlDocument)
    Dim writer As New XmlTextWriter(Console.Out)
    writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented
    doc.WriteTo(writer)
    writer.Flush()
    Console.WriteLine()
End Sub 'WriteXml
