It is the opposite of FromXML. It returns an XML string with the data of the SDT.

Note: The ToXML method applied to SDTs which have a blob data type item results in an XML in which the blob is represented as a base64 string (SAC #30011)


One of the possible contents of the resulting string would be the following:

<SDTName xmlns = “name_Kb”>
   </Cordinating >


Available since GeneXus X Evolution 2 Upgrade 2.
