XmlConvert.EncodeLocalName Method

Converts the name to a valid XML local name.

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

public static string EncodeLocalName(
	string name
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String

The name to be encoded.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The encoded name.

This method is similar to the EncodeName method except that it encodes the colon character, which guarantees that the name can be used as the local name part of a namespace qualified name.

For example, if you passed this method the invalid name a:b, it returns a_x003a_b, which is a valid local name.

If name is null or String.Empty then you get the same value returned.

The following example encodes and decodes names.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{

  public static void Main()
  {

     // Encode and decode a name with spaces. 
     string name1 = XmlConvert.EncodeName("Order Detail");
     Console.WriteLine("Encoded name: " + name1);
     Console.WriteLine("Decoded name: " + XmlConvert.DecodeName(name1));

     // Encode and decode a local name. 
     string name2 = XmlConvert.EncodeLocalName("a:book");
     Console.WriteLine("Encoded local name: " + name2);
     Console.WriteLine("Decoded local name: " + XmlConvert.DecodeName(name2));

  }
}
