Hi,

Is there a way to write the recursions mainmenu results down in a xml file with XmlTextWriter, and then reading this xml file (in a later phase) and (re)create this mainmenu whit the xml data.

I am trying to make this, for several weeks but I am stuck with it.

script:

        /// <summary>
        /// Recursively get the different MenuItems
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="menu"></param>
        private void RecursivelyGetMenuItems(Menu menu)
        {
            foreach (MenuItem mi in menu.MenuItems)
            {
                // TextBox:
                txtInfo.Text += mi.Text + "\r\n";

                if (mi.IsParent)
                {
                    txtInfo.Text += "Parent: " + mi.Text + "\r\n";
                    this.RecursivelyGetMenuItems(mi);
                }
            }
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Button to write the mainmenu contents to a xml file
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="sender"></param>
        /// <param name="e"></param>
        private void btnWriteXml_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        {
            this.RecursivelyGetMenuItems(mainMenu1);

            /* For later use...
             *
             * XmlTextWriter xw = new XmlTextWriter(Application.StartupPath + @"\data.xml", Encoding.UTF8);
            xw.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
            xw.Indentation = 4;
            xw.WriteStartDocument();
            xw.WriteStartElement("root");
            xw.WriteStartElement("XmlData");
            xw.WriteEndElement();
            xw.WriteEndElement();
            xw.WriteEndDocument();
            xw.Close();
           
            */
        }

Please help!

Thanks,

There is at the bottom of this article an update from Martin Robins. This is not so complex as the article of Marc Clifton. But the addition of Martin Robins, is helpfully to me.
