Hello,

(I am a novice still learning)....

Please see the code below. I have an XML data stream coming in from a WebRequest, and I now want to place this stream into a file called response.xml which is located at "C:\XML\response.xml

What is the syntax (in VB.NET) to use the stream writer to place the response into this file?  

Thanks,
Joe
Dim response As WebResponse = request.GetResponse()
        dataStream = response.GetResponseStream()
        Dim reader As XmlTextReader = New XmlTextReader(dataStream)

This MSDN article should have the StreamWriter calls you're looking for.

Ok, read the article and tried:

=========================================================================
        Dim response As WebResponse = request.GetResponse()
        dataStream = response.GetResponseStream()
        Dim reader As XmlTextReader = New XmlTextReader(dataStream)

        Using sw As New StreamWriter("C:\XML\response1.xml")
            sw.Write(reader)
        End Using

==========================================================================
And in my file, response.xml, it has the following text:

System.Xml.XmlTextReader

The file is actually response1.xml, not response.xml.
