AsymmetricAlgorithm.ToXmlString(Boolean) Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, creates and returns an XML string representation of the current AsymmetricAlgorithm object. Otherwise, throws a NotImplementedException.

public:
 abstract System::String ^ ToXmlString(bool includePrivateParameters);
public abstract string ToXmlString (bool includePrivateParameters);
abstract member ToXmlString : bool -> string
Public MustOverride Function ToXmlString (includePrivateParameters As Boolean) As String

Parameters

includePrivateParameters
Boolean

true to include private parameters; otherwise, false.

Returns

An XML string encoding of the current AsymmetricAlgorithm object.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to call the ToXmlString method to create an XML representation of the parameters in the current AsymmetricAlgorithm object. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the AsymmetricAlgorithm class.

public:
    virtual String^ ToXmlString(bool includePrivateParameters) override
    {
        String^ keyContainerName = "";
        String^ keyNumber = "";
        String^ providerName = "";
        String^ providerType = "";

        if (cryptoServiceParameters != nullptr)
        {
            keyContainerName = 
                cryptoServiceParameters->KeyContainerName;
            keyNumber = cryptoServiceParameters->KeyNumber.ToString();
            providerName = cryptoServiceParameters->ProviderName;
            providerType = 
                cryptoServiceParameters->ProviderType.ToString();
        }

        StringBuilder^ sb = gcnew StringBuilder();
        sb->Append("<CustomCryptoKeyValue>");

        sb->Append("<KeyContainerName>");
        sb->Append(keyContainerName);
        sb->Append("</KeyContainerName>");

    sb.Append("<ProviderName>");
    sb.Append(providerName);
    sb.Append("</ProviderName>");

    sb.Append("<ProviderType>");
    sb.Append(providerType);
    sb.Append("</ProviderType>");

    sb.Append("</CustomCryptoKeyValue>");
    return(sb.ToString());
}
