Remarks

Namespace resolution is supported using classes that implement the IXmlNamespaceResolver interface, such as the XmlNamespaceManager class. The XmlNamespaceManager stores prefix and namespace Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) mappings. If the XPathExpression requires namespace resolution, the prefix and namespace URI pair must be added to an object, such as the XmlNamespaceManager class, which implements the IXmlNamespaceResolver interface, and the SetContext method must be called to specify the IXmlNamespaceResolver interface object to use for namespace resolution.

The following are important notes to consider when using the SetContext method.
