When i use SaveToXml of the CodeSnippet of an existing ( nad new ) snippet it doesnt work. How can i test of the SaveToXml actually worked? (Testing datetimes?)

1. Load CodeSnippetFolder
_folder = new CodeSnippetFolder("Blaise", path, false);
2. change a snippet in it

3. save all snippets:
            string m = string.Empty;
            foreach (CodeSnippet snippet in _folder.CodeSnippets) {
                // save snippet
                try {
                    // get a new filename for the new snippet
                    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(snippet.SourceFile)) {
                        string fn = System.IO.Path.ChangeExtension(System.IO.Path.Combine(_folder.Path, snippet.Shortcut), ".snippet");
                         fn = Shared.IO.GetSequencedFilename(fn);
                         snippet.SourceFile = fn;
                    } else {
                } catch {
                    Shared.MessageBox.Show(_owner, String.Format("Snippet {0} with filename {1} could not be saved!", snippet.Shortcut, snippet.SourceFile), "Edit Snippets", MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Error);
                    m = " with errors";
which only wortks for new ones.

Hi Martin,

Our CodeSnippet.SaveToFile(path) method doesn't have any try...catches. Therefore I would expect it to throw an exception if there was a problem. We just start off with this:
XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(path, null);
and write to the writer and close it. Nothing fancy really.

If you think there is a bug in our code, please make a simple sample project that shows it happening and email that over for us to debug. Thanks!

Well, solved. SaveToXml with filename saves to a file, without parameter just makes the xmldocument.

This is by design, as pointed out by support.

BTW, thanks to support. They really do a good job:)
