Property Value

The character to use for indenting. The default is space.


The XmlTextWriter allows you to set this property to any character. To ensure valid XML, you must specify a valid white space character, 0x9, 0x10, 0x13, or 0x20.


Starting with .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlWriter instances by using the XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class to take advantage of new functionality.
