I know this is basic stuff for many here, but as I couldn't find any similar article on this site I thought Id share this useful code snippet for those not so au-fait with the Xml classes.
Basically, I wanted a quick and easy way to get from a non-formatted string of XML, to something that could be nicely displayed in a textbox (ie with indenting and line breaks) without too much mucking about.
Using the code
Simple. Just call the method and display the result, eg. in a Windows forms textbox. Displaying in Webform elements may need the newline characters changed which can be done easily using
. . .
private string FormatXml(string sUnformattedXml)
XmlDocument xd = new XmlDocument();
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb);
XmlTextWriter xtw = null;
xtw = new XmlTextWriter(sw);
xtw.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
if (xtw != null)
