Examples

The following example creates an XmlWriter that writes to a StringBuilder. It then uses this method to write two XML trees to the writer.

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();  
XmlWriterSettings xws = new XmlWriterSettings();  
xws.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;  
xws.Indent = true;  
  
using (XmlWriter xw = XmlWriter.Create(sb, xws)) {  
    xw.WriteStartElement("Root");  
    XElement child1 = new XElement("Child",  
        new XElement("GrandChild", "some content")  
    );  
    child1.WriteTo(xw);  
    XElement child2 = new XElement("AnotherChild",  
        new XElement("GrandChild", "different content")  
    );  
    child2.WriteTo(xw);  
    xw.WriteEndElement();  
}  
Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString());  
Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()  
Dim xws As XmlWriterSettings = New XmlWriterSettings()  
xws.OmitXmlDeclaration = True  
xws.Indent = True  
  
Using xw = XmlWriter.Create(sb, xws)  
    xw.WriteStartElement("Root")  
    Dim child1 As XElement = <Child>  
                                 <GrandChild>some content</GrandChild>  
                             </Child>  
    child1.WriteTo(xw)  
    Dim child2 As XElement = <AnotherChild>  
                                 <GrandChild>different content</GrandChild>  
                             </AnotherChild>  
    child2.WriteTo(xw)  
    xw.WriteEndElement()  
End Using  
  
Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString())  

This example produces the following output:

<Root>  
  <Child>  
    <GrandChild>some content</GrandChild>  
  </Child>  
  <AnotherChild>  
    <GrandChild>different content</GrandChild>  
  </AnotherChild>  
</Root>  

Remarks

You can use this method to write code that does a streaming transform of a very large document. For more information, see How to: Perform Streaming Transform of Large XML Documents.
