// Create the XmlWriter object and write some content.
MemoryStream strm = new MemoryStream();
XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(strm, settings);
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "1-456-ab");
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "2-36-00a");
writer.Flush();
writer.Close();

// Do additonal processing on the stream.
Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = New XmlWriterSettings()
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true
settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment
settings.CloseOutput = false

' Create the XmlWriter object and write some content.
Dim strm as MemoryStream = new MemoryStream()
Dim writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(strm, settings)
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "1-456-ab")
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "2-36-00a")
writer.Flush()
writer.Close()

Remarks

This setting is useful when you wish to write XML to a stream, and then add extra information to the end of the stream after the XmlWriter has finished writing.

This property only applies to XmlWriter instances that output XML content to a stream or TextWriter; otherwise, this setting is ignored.
