Hi guys... I have this problem... I'm using an XmlDocument.innerXml in a message box... and I want the text indented inside the message box... I'm using this code inside a Function:

            private string convertXmlToString()
            {
            XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();
            document.Load(@"C:\books.xml");
            string resp = Convert.ToString(MessageBox.Show(document.InnerXml, "Books"));
            return resp;        
            }

You can load the child XML into a new XmlDocument. Then, create a new XmlWriter that has the appropriate indentation settings to which you can write the child XML as formatted:

e.g.

XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();
XmlDocument subDocument = new XmlDocument();
XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings() { Indent = true };
XmlWriter xWriter;
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

document.Load(@"C:\books.xml");
subDocument.LoadXml(document.InnerXml);
xWriter = XmlWriter.Create(sb, settings);
subDocument.WriteTo(xWriter);
xWriter.Flush();
xWriter.Close();

string resp = Convert.ToString(MessageBox.Show(sb.ToString(), "Books"));
