Hello,

I created a XDocument element which shows exactly the XML that I need if I call the ToString() method.

Now I need to create a WEB API controller method to enable myself to call the controller and get exactly the XML of the XDocument.

I get an
"The 'ObjectContent`1' type failed to serialize the response body for content type 'application/xml; charset=utf-8'."

Open in new window

error if I try something like this:

        // GET api/values
        public XDocument Get()
        {
            XDocument doc = new XDocument();
            doc.Add(new XElement("list"));

            <filling the XDocument>

            return doc;
        }

Open in new window


How can I get this to work?

Is not this code returning what you need?
// GET api/values
public XDocument Get()

Open in new window

That brought me to the right solution...

I now send the Root-XElement instead of the XDocument. That works...

Thanks a lot :-)
