I want to send an XML string over network and then parse it using predefined XML classes.
I tried XmlTextWriter, but it asks to a Stream object to initialize.
I can have Console.Out there as

XmlTextWriter textwriter = new XmlTextWriter(Console.Out);
then I can use


But still I didn't find any way to convert it to string or byte[] to send it to socket.
Also I didn't find any way to parse the XML data using these classes.
Please help!

You could try:

var xDoc = new XDocument();
var rootNode = new XElement("RootNode");
var childNode = new XElement("ChildNode");

childNode.SetAttributeValue("Name", "foo");
childNode.Value = "Today is a nice day";
xDoc.Add( rootNode );

var stringToSend = xDoc.ToString());

// for simplicity, the '=' is our network
var stringReceived = stringToSend;

var someOtherXDoc = XDocument.Parse( stringReceived );

The XmlSerializer and Deserializer are what you're looking for.

I saw them, they also require those Streams. I do not want to include any files in these.
The jochen's is exactly I was looking for.
