See more: XML XAML VB.NET .NET4.5
i want to write some data in XML file using metro style app (.Net Framework 4.5).

here is the code which i have written and it works fine but problem is that the whole string is being written in s single line instead of XML text formatting. Therefore i can't read it properly. Every time i need to reformat the newly added data to understand it properly.

Here is the code i have written :

        Dim f As New FolderPicker
        f.SuggestedStartLocation = PickerLocationId.DocumentsLibrary
        f.ViewMode = PickerViewMode.Thumbnail
        Dim folder As StorageFolder = Await f.PickSingleFolderAsync
        Dim rootEle As XmlElement
        Dim file As StorageFile = Nothing
        file = Await folder.CreateFileAsync("demoXML.xml", CreationCollisionOption.ReplaceExisting)
        rootEle = doc.CreateElement("files_tbl")
        Dim ele As XmlElement
        ele = doc.CreateElement("files")
        Dim otherEle As XmlElement
        otherEle = doc.CreateElement("field-1")
        otherEle.InnerText = "data-1"
        otherEle = doc.CreateElement("field-2")
        otherEle.InnerText = "data-2"
        Await doc.SaveToFileAsync(file)

What tool are you using to view your XML? I don't recommend bloating your file with newline characters if you can avoid it. Notepad++ does a great job at auto-formatting XML, as does the XML viewer in Visual Studio.

I'm using Notepad++. But still it shows all the contents in single line..
To format it, i need to format it manually by adding tabs.

Is there any bug in the code above ???
