Binding.GetXmlNamespaceManager Method

Returns an XML namespace manager object used by the binding attached to the specified object.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Data
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

static member GetXmlNamespaceManager : 
        target:DependencyObject -> XmlNamespaceManager


Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The object from which to get namespace information.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNamespaceManager
A returned object used for viewing XML namespaces that relate to the binding on the passed object element. This object should be cast as System.Xml.XmlNamespaceManager.


The target parameter cannot be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This method supports attached property usage for the XmlNamespaceManager attached property.

XML namespace managers are relevant only if the data in the binding came from an XML binding source (XmlDataProvider object).

If a namespace manager was not specifically applied either in the original data source creation or by subsequently calling SetXmlNamespaceManager on the binding, then this method will return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This method will always return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the data behind the binding is not XML.
