Parameters

output
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter

The XmlWriter object that you want to use as the underlying writer.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter
An XmlWriter object that is wrapped around the specified XmlWriter object.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The writer value is null.

This method allows you add features to an underlying XmlWriter object. The underlying XmlWriter object can be an object created by the XmlWriter.Create method, or an object created using the XmlTextWriter implementation.

When you use this overload, an XmlWriterSettings object with default settings is used to create the XML writer.

If you want to specify the features to support on the created XML writer, use an overload that takes an XmlWriterSettings object as one of its arguments, and pass in a XmlWriterSettings object with your custom settings.
