XmlRootAttribute.Namespace Property

Gets or sets the namespace for the XML root element.

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

public string Namespace { get; set; }

Property Value

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

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

To create prefixed namespaces in the XML document, create an XmlSerializerNamespaces object that contains all the prefix-namespace pairs. The namespace you set for each XmlArrayAttribute must be contained in the XmlSerializerNamespaces object. When the XmlSerializer generates the document, it correctly prefixes the element name for each array item.

The following example applies the XmlRootAttribute to a class and sets the Namespace property.

[XmlRoot(Namespace = "http://www.cpandl.com")]
public class Group
{
   // Insert the members of the Group class.
}
[XmlRoot(Namespace = S"http://www.cpandl.com")]
public __gc class Group
{
   // Insert the members of the Group class.
};
