Remarks

Note

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

In the following XML, if the reader is positioned on the href attribute, the prefix a is resolved by calling reader.LookupNamespace("a"). The returned string is urn:456.

<root xmlns:a="urn:456">  
 <item>  
 <ref href="a:b"/>  
 </item>  
</root>
