XName.Get Method (String, String)

Gets an XName object from a local name and a namespace.

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

public static XName Get(
	string localName,
	string namespaceName
)

Parameters

localName
Type: System.String

A local (unqualified) name.

namespaceName
Type: System.String

An XML namespace.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XName
An XName object created from the specified local name and namespace.

This method contains overloads that allow you to create an XName. You can create it from an expanded XML name in the form {namespace}localname, or from a namespace and a local name, specified separately.

A much more common and easier way to create an XName is to use the implicit conversion from string.

Because XName are atomized, if there is an existing XName with exactly the same name, the assigned variable will refer to the existing XName. If there is no existing XName, a new one will be created and initialized.

The following example shows the use of this method.

XName name = XName.Get("Root", "http://www.adventure-works.com");
XElement el = new XElement(name, "content");
Console.WriteLine(el);

// This is the preferred form.
XNamespace aw = "http://www.adventure-works.com";
XElement el2 = new XElement(aw + "Root", "content");
Console.WriteLine(el2);

This example produces the following output:

<Root xmlns="http://www.adventure-works.com">content</Root>
<Root xmlns="http://www.adventure-works.com">content</Root>
