Create Method (Stream)

XmlWriter.Create Method (Stream)

 

Creates a new XmlWriter instance using the specified stream.

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

static member Create : 
        output:Stream -> XmlWriter

Parameters

output
Type: System.IO.Stream

The stream to which you want to write. The XmlWriter writes XML 1.0 text syntax and appends it to the specified stream.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

An XmlWriter object.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The stream value is null.

When you use this overload, an XmlWriterSettings object with the following default settings is used to create the XML writer:

Setting

Default

CheckCharacters

true

CloseOutput

false

ConformanceLevel

ConformanceLevel.Document

Encoding

Encoding.UTF8

Indent

false

IndentChars

Two spaces

NamespaceHandling

Default (no removal)

NewLineChars

\r\n (carriage return, new line)

NewLineHandling

NewLineHandling.Replace

NewLineOnAttributes

false

OmitXmlDeclaration

false

OutputMethod

XmlOutputMethod.Xml

WriteEndDocumentOnClose

true

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.)
