Converts an object into its XML representation.

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

void WriteXml(
	XmlWriter writer


Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter
The XmlWriter stream to which the object is serialized.

The implementation you provide for this method should write out the XML representation of the object. Write sufficient information to the XmlWriter stream to allow the ReadXml method to reconstitute your object. For example, if your object state includes an array variable, be sure to write the length of the array, or use a parent element to contain the elements that describe the array values, so that you know how many values to read when the object is reconstituted.
