XmlElementAttribute.Namespace Property

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Gets or sets the namespace assigned to the XML element that results when the class is serialized.

Namespace: System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)


Public Property Namespace As String
public string Namespace { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System..::.String
The namespace of the XML element.


The Namespace property conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) specification, Namespaces in XML.

To create namespaces that are associated with a prefix, you must create an XmlSerializerNamespaces that contains the namespaces and prefixes used in the XML document. As you set the namespace for each XmlArrayAttribute, it must match one of the namespaces in the XmlSerializerNamespaces. When the XML is generated, each array is correctly prefixed with the prefix associated with the specified namespace.
