XmlWriterSettings.CheckCharacters XmlWriterSettings.CheckCharacters XmlWriterSettings.CheckCharacters XmlWriterSettings.CheckCharacters Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the XML writer should check to ensure that all characters in the document conform to the "2.2 Characters" section of the W3C XML 1.0 Recommendation.

public:
 property bool CheckCharacters { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool CheckCharacters { get; set; }
member this.CheckCharacters : bool with get, set
Public Property CheckCharacters As Boolean

Property Value

true to do character checking; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Remarks

If the XmlWriter object supports character checking, it throws an exception if any characters are outside the range of legal XML characters specified by the "2.2 Characters" section of the W3C XML 1.0 Recommendation.

Character checking does not include checking for illegal characters in XML names or checking that all XML names are valid. These checks are part of conformance checking and are always performed.
