XName Implicit Conversion (String to XName)

Converts a string formatted as an expanded XML name (that is,{namespace}localname) to an XName object.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

public static implicit operator XName (
	string expandedName
)

Parameters

expandedName
Type: System.String
A string that contains an expanded XML name in the format {namespace}localname.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XName
An XName object constructed from the expanded name.

You are using this implicit operator when you create an XElement or XAttribute by passing a string to the appropriate constructor.

The following example creates an XName by assigning a string to it, which invokes this implicit conversion operator.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XElement el = new XElement("{http://www.adventure-works.com}Root", "content");
output.Append(el + Environment.NewLine);

// The preferred approach is to initialize an XNamespace object
// and use the overload of the addition operator.
XNamespace aw = "http://www.adventure-works.com";
XElement root = new XElement(aw + "Root", "content");
output.Append(root + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
