LINQ to XML : Creating complete XML document

LINQ to XML API allows us to create complete XML document as expected with all the elements. So this X-DOM has everything as you expect.


 


Simple sample looks like,


 


 


XDocument doc = new XDocument(


    new XDeclaration(“1.0”, “utf-16”, “true”),


    new XProcessingInstruction(“test”, “value”),


    new XComment(“This is comment by you”),


    new XElement(“Employees”,


        new XElement(“Employee”,


            new XAttribute(“id”, “EMP001”),


            new XElement(“name”, “Wriju”),


            new XCData(“~~~~~~~XML CDATA~~~~~~~~”))));


 


By calling Save method of XDocument (actually of XContainer) you can save it to a physical file. And the file will look like,


 


<?xml version=1.0 encoding=utf-16 ?>


<?test value?>


  <!– This is comment by you –>


<Employees>


  <Employee id=EMP001>


    <name>Wriju</name>


    <![CDATA[ ~~~~~~~XML CDATA~~~~~~~~]]>


  </Employee>


</Employees>


 


To me this looks like more aligned to the human thinking mechanism.
