XmlWriterSettings.NewLineOnAttributes XmlWriterSettings.NewLineOnAttributes XmlWriterSettings.NewLineOnAttributes XmlWriterSettings.NewLineOnAttributes Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to write attributes on a new line.

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

Property Value

true to write attributes on individual lines; otherwise, false. The default is false.

This setting has no effect when the Indent property value is false.

When NewLineOnAttributes is set to true, each attribute is pre-pended with a new line and one extra level of indentation.

Examples

The following example creates an XmlWriter that writes to an XML file and writes each attribute on a new line.

XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
settings.Indent = true;
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
settings.NewLineOnAttributes = true;
       
writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings);

writer.WriteStartElement("order");
writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "367A54");
writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2001-05-03");
writer.WriteElementString("price", "19.95");
writer.WriteEndElement();
	
writer.Flush();
Dim settings As XmlWriterSettings = New XmlWriterSettings()
settings.Indent = true
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true
settings.NewLineOnAttributes = true
       
writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings)

writer.WriteStartElement("order")
writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "367A54")
writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2001-05-03")
writer.WriteElementString("price", "19.95")
writer.WriteEndElement()
	
writer.Flush()

The sample produces the following output:

<order  
  orderID="367A54"  
  date="2001-05-03">  
  <price>19.95</price>  
</order>  

Remarks

This property only applies to XmlWriter instances that output text content; otherwise, this setting is ignored.
