IXmlNamespaceResolver.LookupPrefix Method

Gets the prefix that is mapped to the specified namespace URI.

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

string LookupPrefix(
	string namespaceName
)

Parameters

namespaceName
Type: System.String
The namespace URI whose prefix you wish to find.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The prefix that is mapped to the namespace URI; null if the namespace URI is not mapped to a prefix.

It is possible for a namespace URI to be mapped to multiple prefixes. Because the prefixes are not mapped in a predictable manner, you should not depend on getting back a particular prefix when a namespace URI is mapped to more than one prefix.

NoteNote:

Namespace URI to prefix mappings can change from node to node in an XML document. You cannot depend on the result of a lookup being consistent from one node to the next.

The following table describes how the default and built-in namespaces are handled by the LookupPrefix method.

Namespace

Return value

http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace

xml

http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/

xmlns

An empty namespace.

A default namespace that has not been defined.
