WsGetPrefixFromNamespace function

This function returns the prefix to which a namespace is bound. There may be more than one prefix in scope and this function is free to return any one of them.

Note  Under no conditions should a caller depend upon or expect a particular prefix to be returned when there is more than one prefix that may be returned.

If the value of the required parameter is set to TRUE and the Namespace is not bound to any Prefix a WS_E_INVALID_FORMAT exception will be returned. (See Windows Web Services Return Values.) If the required parameter is FALSE, and the Namespace is not bound to any Prefix the prefix parameter is NULL and the function returns S_FALSE.

If WsWriteStartElement is called but the element is not committed the Namespaces and Prefixes referenced by the element and any attributes on the element is not available to this function.
