CodeNamespaceImport Class

Represents a namespace import directive that indicates a namespace to use.

Namespace:  System.CodeDom
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
[SerializableAttribute]
[ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch)]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public class CodeNamespaceImport : CodeObject

CodeNamespaceImport can be used to represent a namespace import directive.

In most languages, a namespace import directive causes visibility of the types within the imported namespaces to code that references types in the imported namespaces.

NoteNote:

Use fully qualified type references to avoid potential ambiguity.

The following example code demonstrates use of a CodeNamespaceImport to import the CodeNamespaceImport namespace:

// Declares a compile unit to contain a namespace.
CodeCompileUnit compileUnit = new CodeCompileUnit();

// Declares a namespace named TestNamespace.
CodeNamespace testNamespace = new CodeNamespace("TestNamespace");
// Adds the namespace to the namespace collection of the compile unit.
compileUnit.Namespaces.Add(testNamespace);

// Declares a namespace import of the System namespace.
CodeNamespaceImport import1 = new CodeNamespaceImport("System");
// Adds the namespace import to the namespace imports collection of the namespace.
testNamespace.Imports.Add(import1);

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code: 

//    namespace TestNamespace {         
//        using System; 
// 
//  }
System.Object
