XmlWriter.Create Method (Stream)
Creates a new XmlWriter instance using the specified stream.
Assemblies: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
System.Xml.ReaderWriter (in System.Xml.ReaderWriter.dll)
When you use this overload, an XmlWriterSettings object with the following default settings is used to create the XML writer:
Default (no removal)
\r\n (carriage return, new line)
If you want to specify the features to support on the created writer, use an overload that takes an XmlWriterSettings object as one of its arguments, and pass in an XmlWriterSettings object with your custom settings.
Also, XmlWriter always writes a Byte Order Mark (BOM) to the underlying data stream; however, some streams must not have a BOM. To omit the BOM, create a new XmlWriterSettings object and set the Encoding property to be a new UTF8Encoding object with the Boolean value in the constructor set to false.
The following example writes an XML fragment to a memory stream. (It uses the Create(Stream, XmlWriterSettings) overload, which also configures the settings on the new XML writer instance.)
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.
