Examples

The following example shows how to write an XDocument to an XmlWriter. Note that the example did not write an XML declaration.

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();  
XmlWriterSettings xws = new XmlWriterSettings();  
xws.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;  
xws.Indent = true;  
  
using (XmlWriter xw = XmlWriter.Create(sb, xws))  
{  
    XDocument doc = new XDocument(  
        new XElement("Child",  
            new XElement("GrandChild", "some content")  
        )  
    );  
    doc.WriteTo(xw);  
}  
  
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)  
    Dim doc As XDocument = New XDocument(<Child><GrandChild>some content</GrandChild></Child>)  
    doc.WriteTo(xw)  
End Using  
  
Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString())  

This example produces the following output:

<Child>  
  <GrandChild>some content</GrandChild>  
</Child>
