XmlWriter.WriteFullEndElement XmlWriter.WriteFullEndElement XmlWriter.WriteFullEndElement XmlWriter.WriteFullEndElement Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, closes one element and pops the corresponding namespace scope.

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

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 uses the WriteEndElement and the WriteFullEndElement methods.

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

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {
  
     // Create a writer to write XML to the console.
     XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
     settings.Indent = true;
     XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings);

     // Write the root element.
     writer.WriteStartElement("order");

     // Write an element with attributes.
     writer.WriteStartElement("item");
     writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2/19/01");
     writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "136A5");

     // Write a full end element. Because this element has no
     // content, calling WriteEndElement would have written a
     // short end tag '/>'.
     writer.WriteFullEndElement();

     writer.WriteEndElement();
             
     // Write the XML to file and close the writer
     writer.Close();  
  }
}

Public Class Sample
    
  Public Shared Sub Main()

     ' Create a writer to write XML to the console.
     Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = new XmlWriterSettings()
     settings.Indent = true
     Dim writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings)
        
     ' Write the root element.
     writer.WriteStartElement("order")
        
     ' Write an element with attributes.
     writer.WriteStartElement("item")
     writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2/19/01")
     writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "136A5")
        
     ' Write a full end element. Because this element has no
     ' content, calling WriteEndElement would have written a
     ' short end tag '/>'.
     writer.WriteFullEndElement()
        
     writer.WriteEndElement()

     ' Write the XML to file and close the writer
     writer.Close()

    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'Sample

Remarks

This method always writes the full end tag. This is useful when dealing with elements that must include a full end tag. For example, browsers expect HTML script blocks to be closed with "</script>".

For the asynchronous version of this method, see WriteFullEndElementAsync.
