The Converter class implements the XSL-FO conversion engine. Performing a conversion typically involves the following steps:
  1. Set conversion parameters such as output format and encoding. All conversion parameters are implemented as public properties.
  2. Specify the conversion input source using one of the SetInput methods. The input source may be specified as a URL, a byte stream, a character stream or an XML reader.
  3. Specify the conversion output destination using one of the SetOutput methods. The output destination may be specified as a file name, a byte stream or a character stream.
  4. Perform the conversion by calling the Convert method.
The method below converts an XSL-FO file to WML, writing the conversion output to the standard output stream.
public void Convert(string input) 
    Converter converter = new Converter();
    converter.OutputFormat = OutputFormat.Wml;
