Dataset to XML

Hello Experts,

I'm working on my first VS 2005 app in VB, and having some difficulity.

It is a mobile app I'm writing for Time keeping on the road.  It simply has a couple buttons where I clock in or out.  I want to save the data in an xml file.

I've created a Dataset in VS and it stored an xsd file in the solution which has the Datatable in it.

I don't know how to instigate or start the dataset to store data back to the xml file.  I'm used to loading data from sql or access.  But here it's just write to xml with each button click.  Should be easy....Right

Thanks

Private Sub WriteXmlToFile(thisDataSet As DataSet)
    If thisDataSet Is Nothing Then
        Return
    End If ' Create a file name to write to.
    Dim filename As String = "myXmlDoc.xml"
    ' Create the FileStream to write with.
    Dim myFileStream As New System.IO.FileStream _
       (filename, System.IO.FileMode.Create)
    ' Write to the file with the WriteXml method.
    thisDataSet.WriteXml(myFileStream)
End Sub

or
 SqlConnection1.Open()

        SqlDataAdapter1.Fill(Dataset11, "Account")
        Dataset11.WriteXml("d:\\test.xml")

Hi

try this

Imports System
Imports System.Xml
Imports System.Data
Imports System.IO
 
 Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim ds As New DataSet
        ' check if previous file exists then delete it
        If File.Exists("c:\xmlfile.xml") = True Then
            File.Delete("c:\xmlfile.xml")
        End If

        ds.WriteXml("c:\xmlfile.xml")

    End Sub

hope this helps

I understand how to write the xml file once the dataset has some data in it.  How do I start the dataset?  Can I use the dataset that I built with VS?
