global (C# Reference)

Updated: July 2008

The global contextual keyword, when it comes before the :: operator, refers to the global namespace, which is the default namespace for any C# program and is otherwise unnamed. For more information, see How to: Use the Namespace Alias Qualifier (C# Programming Guide).

The following example shows how to use the global contextual keyword to specify that the class TestApp is defined in the global namespace:

class TestClass : global::TestApp { }
