XmlWriter.Flush XmlWriter.Flush XmlWriter.Flush XmlWriter.Flush Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, flushes whatever is in the buffer to the underlying streams and also flushes the underlying stream.

public:
 abstract void Flush();
public abstract void Flush ();
abstract member Flush : unit -> unit
Public MustOverride Sub Flush ()

Exceptions

An XmlWriter method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message "An asynchronous operation is already in progress."

Examples

The following example writes two XML fragments.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;
void main()
{
   
   // Create an XmlWriter to write XML fragments.
   XmlWriterSettings^ settings = gcnew XmlWriterSettings;
   settings->ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel::Fragment;
   settings->Indent = true;
   XmlWriter^ writer = XmlWriter::Create( Console::Out, settings );
   
   // Write an XML fragment.
   writer->WriteStartElement( L"book" );
   writer->WriteElementString( L"title", L"Pride And Prejudice" );
   writer->WriteEndElement();
   writer->Flush();
   
   // Write another XML fragment.
   writer->WriteStartElement( L"cd" );
   writer->WriteElementString( L"title", L"Americana" );
   writer->WriteEndElement();
   writer->Flush();
   
   // Close the writer.
   writer->Close();
}

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {
 
     // Create an XmlWriter to write XML fragments.
     XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
     settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment;
     settings.Indent = true;
     XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings);
     
     // Write an XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("book");
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Pride And Prejudice");
     writer.WriteEndElement();
     writer.Flush();

     // Write another XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("cd");
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Americana");
     writer.WriteEndElement();
     writer.Flush();  

     // Close the writer.
     writer.Close();
  }
}

Public Class Sample

  Public Shared Sub Main()

     ' Create an XmlWriter to write XML fragments.
     Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = new XmlWriterSettings()
     settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment
     settings.Indent = true
     Dim writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings)
	
     ' Write an XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("book")
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Pride And Prejudice")
     writer.WriteEndElement()
     writer.Flush()

     ' Write another XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("cd")
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Americana")
     writer.WriteEndElement()
     writer.Flush()  

     'Close the writer.
     writer.Close()

  End Sub
End Class

Remarks

This is called instead of Close when you want to write more to the underlying stream without losing what is still in the buffer.

For the asynchronous version of this method, see FlushAsync.
