public:
 static operator System::Xml::Linq::XName ^(System::String ^ expandedName);
[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static implicit operator System.Xml.Linq.XName (string expandedName);
static member op_Implicit : string -> System.Xml.Linq.XName
Public Shared Widening Operator CType (expandedName As String) As XName

Parameters

expandedName
String String String String

A string that contains an expanded XML name in the format {namespace}localname.

Returns

An XName object constructed from the expanded name.

Examples

The following example creates an XName by assigning a string to it, which invokes this implicit conversion operator.

XElement el = new XElement("{http://www.adventure-works.com}Root", "content");  
Console.WriteLine(el);  

// The preferred approach is to initialize an XNamespace object  
// and use the overload of the addition operator.  
XNamespace aw = "http://www.adventure-works.com";  
XElement root = new XElement(aw + "Root", "content");  
Console.WriteLine(root);  
Imports <xmlns="http://www.adventure-works.com">  

Module Module1  
    Sub Main()  
        Dim el As XElement = New XElement("{http://www.adventure-works.com}Root", "content")  
        Console.WriteLine(el)  

        ' The preferred approach is to import a global namespace and   
        ' use an XML literal.  
        Dim root As XElement = <Root>content</Root>  
        Console.WriteLine(root)  
    End Sub  
End Module  

This example produces the following output:

<Root xmlns="http://www.adventure-works.com">content</Root>  
<Root xmlns="http://www.adventure-works.com">content</Root>  

Remarks

You are using this implicit operator when you create an XElement or XAttribute by passing a string to the appropriate constructor.
