XML transformation using Xslt in C#
Xml transformation using Xslt in C#

Xml is a meta-markup language that provides a format for describing data. Xslt is one way to consume and transform this data into a variety different formats, including Xml, html and wml. In this article we shall learn how to transform a simple Xml document using Xslt.

The .NET framework provides rich support for the manipulation of Xml documents.
The main namespaces that provide us with the needed classes are:

Xml Transformation steps
The steps to transform an Xml document are
1) Load the Xml document
XPathDocument myXPathDoc = new XPathDocument(<xml file path>) ;
2) Load the Xsl file
XslTransform myXslTrans = new XslTransform() ;
myXslTrans.Load(<xsl file path>);
3) Create a stream for output
XmlTextWriter myWriter = new XmlTextWriter("result.html",null) ;
4) Perform the actual transformation
myXslTrans.Transform(myXPathDoc,null,myWriter) ;
Sample Code
Check the code below for a C# command line application that transforms Xml with Xsl.
Compile and run the application. Usage is as follows:
XmlTransformUtil.exe <xml file path> <xsl file path>

You could use the provided sampledoc.xml and sample.xsl to have a go at it. You should
see a 'result.html' in the same folder as the application with the results of the

using System ;
using System.IO ;
using System.Xml ;
using System.Xml.Xsl ;
using System.Xml.XPath ;

public class XmlTransformUtil{
public static void Main(string[] args){
if (args.Length == 2){
Transform(args[0], args[1]) ;
PrintUsage() ;
}public static void Transform(string sXmlPath, string sXslPath){
try{ //load the Xml doc

XPathDocument myXPathDoc = new XPathDocument(sXmlPath) ;
XslTransform myXslTrans = new XslTransform() ;
//load the Xsl

myXslTrans.Load(sXslPath) ;
//create the output stream
XmlTextWriter myWriter = new XmlTextWriter
("result.html", null);
//do the actual transform of Xml
myXslTrans.Transform(myXPathDoc,null, myWriter);
myWriter.Close() ;
}catch(Exception e){
Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}", e.ToString());
}public static void PrintUsage(){
("Usage: XmlTransformUtil.exe <xml path> <xsl path>");
