Help: XML File Writing


I'm working on the .NET Compact Framework, and I need a way in which i store
products in an xml file. Basically, when i add a product to the system, i
want to either add it to the XML file, (if it exists), or create a new XML
file with the item in it if the file doesn't exist.

Bearing in mind I'm on the compact framework, does anyone have any
suggestions how i can check the file ?

Many thanks.

This is my code so far.
using System;
using System.Xml;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;

namespace SaveExample

/// <summary>
/// Summary description for save.
/// </summary>

public class Save

public static void savefile()
XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();
XmlElement playersnode;

StreamReader xmlfile = new StreamReader("p roducts.xml");
xmldoc.Load(xml file);
xmlfile.Close() ;

//get the products node
playersnode =xmldoc.CreateE lement("","prod ucts","");

catch(System.IO .FileNotFoundEx ception f){
//the file doesn't exist so we must create a new document

//let's add the XML declaration section
XmlNode xmlnode=xmldoc. CreateNode(XmlN odeType.XmlDecl aration,"","");

xmldoc.AppendCh ild(xmlnode);
XmlNode players = xmldoc.CreateNo de("","products ","");
xmldoc.AppendCh ild(products);

//let's add the root element
playersnode =xmldoc.CreateE lement("","prod ucts","");


//the products node

XmlElement product = xmldoc.CreateEl ement("product" );

//the id

XmlElement id = xmldoc.CreateEl ement("id");

XmlText id_value = xmldoc.CreateTe xtNode("id text");

id.AppendChild( id_value);

product.AppendC hild(id); //add the id to the product

xmldoc.Save("pr oducts.xml");

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
