Hello,

I need to save a html file that I have created on the fly from within my WCF service.  How can I do this?

Here is the code i'm using to create the file

using (FileStream fs = new FileStream("fileName.html", FileMode.Create))
            {
                using (StreamWriter w = new StreamWriter(fs, Encoding.UTF8))
                {
                    w.WriteLine("<html>");
                    w.WriteLine("<head><title>File Title</title></head>");
                    w.WriteLine("<body>");
                    //stuff here
                    w.WriteLine("</body>");
                    w.WriteLine("</html>");

                }

            }

Hi jmpatton;

Try the modified code below.
You state, "//ToDo: Save HTML file to c: drive", Change this string "fileName.html" to include the file path as well to where you want it stored on the C: drive.

using (FileStream fs = new FileStream("fileName.html", FileMode.Create))
{
    using (StreamWriter w = new StreamWriter(fs, Encoding.UTF8))
    {
        w.WriteLine("<html>");
        w.WriteLine("<head><title>File Title</title></head>");
        w.WriteLine("<body>");
        //stuff here
        w.WriteLine("</body>");
        w.WriteLine("</html>");

        // Write all unwritten buffers out to the file
        // The using statement should end up closing the file
        w.Flush();
    }

}

Try below cod snippet.


StringBuilder str = new StringBuilder();
str.Append(@"<html>").
str.Append(@"..........");  // Fill the text as you wish 

System.IO.File.WriteAllText(@"C:\Users\Public\TestFolder\WriteText.html", str.ToString());
