  Private dt As DataTable

   Private ds As DataSet

   

    Private Sub Window_Loaded(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Loaded

        ds = New DataSet()

        dt = New DataTable("Customer")

        dt.Columns.Add("Cid")

        dt.Columns.Add("Name")

        dt.Columns.Add("Email")

        ds.Tables.Add(dt)

        End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim dr As DataRow = dt.NewRow()

        dr(0) = txtCid.Text

        dr(1) = txtName.Text

        dt.Rows.Add(dr)

        dr(2) = txtEmail.Text

        ds.WriteXml("E:/customer4.xml")

        MessageBox.Show(" Data has been saved")

        txtCid.Clear()
