I have the below method that does some transformations and returns an xml document.
I have an in memory xml document and an in memory xsl document. I need to invoke the below method to transform the xml document. How can I create System.IO.Stream objects from the in memory xml documents?

public static XmlDocument Transform(System.IO.Stream xslStream, System.IO.Stream xmlStream)

Thanks for any help.

Need to use Transform method XslCompiledTransform class . Check:

Note: I am not sure what kind of stream objects are the xml/xsl, but the links are clear explaining how to transform it.

I think I was not clear with my question.
I needed to use this existing method. I have two in memory xml documents and I need to create a stream objects from these xmls and need to invoke the below method.

public static XmlDocument Transform(System.IO.Stream xslStream, System.IO.Stream xmlStream)

My question is how to create a stream object for an xml document?

Thank you.

I have xml documents but this method accepts only parameters of type System.IO.Stream.

public static XmlDocument Transform(System.IO.Stream xslStream, System.IO.Stream xmlStream)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

OK, in that case please answer:
1) What kind of objects are your in memory objects? e.g. XmlDocument
2) What kind of stream parameters is you method accepting? e.g. MemoryStream, StreamReader
3) Can you provide implementation code of your transform method to check if there are any limitations?

Try doing something like:

MemoryStream memStream = new MemoryStream();
xmlDocument.Save(memStream);
memStream.Position = 0;

Same for another (xsl) document. Now you have two streams and may pass them to the function.

1) I have XmlDocument objects
2) The method is accepting MemoryStream parameters.
3)
xslStream.Position = 0;
            xmlStream.Position = 0;

            XmlReader xslReader = XmlReader.Create(xslStream);
            XmlReader xmlReader = XmlReader.Create(xmlStream);

            return Transform(xslReader, xmlReader);


Thanks.
