Note

The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

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

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