Attributes

Remarks

The Namespace property is used when reading and writing an XML document into a DataTable in the DataSet using the ReadXml, WriteXml, ReadXmlSchema, or WriteXmlSchema methods.

The namespace of an XML document is used to scope XML attributes and elements when read into a DataSet. For example, a DataSet contains a schema read from a document that has the namespace "myCompany," and an attempt is made to read data (with the ReadXml method) from a document that has the namespace "theirCompany." Any data that does not correspond to the existing schema will be ignored.
