System.Xml namespaces

System.Xml and its child namespaces (System.Xml.Linq, System.Xml.Schema, and System.Xml.Serialization) contain types for processing XML.

This topic displays the types in the System.Xml namespaces that are included in the .NET for Windows Store apps. Note that the .NET for Windows Store apps does not include all the members of each type. For information about individual types, see the linked topics. The documentation for a type indicates which members are included in the .NET for Windows Store apps.

XmlWriter

Represents a writer that provides a fast, non-cached, forward-only means of generating streams or files containing XML data.

XmlWriterSettings

Specifies a set of features to support on the XmlWriter object created by the Create method.

XDocument

Represents an XML document.

XDocumentType

Represents an XML Document Type Definition (DTD).

XElement

Represents an XML element.

XName

XNode

Represents the abstract concept of a node (element, comment, document type, processing instruction, or text node) in the XML tree.

XNodeDocumentOrderComparer

Contains functionality to compare nodes for their document order. This class cannot be inherited.

XNodeEqualityComparer

Compares nodes to determine whether they are equal. This class cannot be inherited.

XObject

Represents a node or an attribute in an XML tree.

XObjectChange

Specifies the event type when an event is raised for an XObject.

XObjectChangeEventArgs

Provides data for the Changing and Changed events.

XProcessingInstruction

Represents an XML processing instruction.

XStreamingElement

Represents elements in an XML tree that supports deferred streaming output.

XText

Represents a text node.

Types supported in the .NET for Windows Store apps

Description

XmlSchema

An in-memory representation of an XML Schema as specified in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) XML Schema Part 1: Structures and XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes specifications.

XmlSchemaForm

Indicates if attributes or elements need to be qualified with a namespace prefix.

Types supported in the .NET for Windows Store apps

Description

IXmlSerializable

Provides custom formatting for XML serialization and deserialization.

XmlAnyAttributeAttribute

Specifies that the member (a field that returns an array of XmlAttribute objects) can contain any XML attributes.

XmlAnyElementAttribute

Specifies that the member (a field that returns an array of XmlElement or XmlNode objects) contains objects that represent any XML element that has no corresponding member in the object being serialized or deserialized.

XmlAnyElementAttributes

Represents a collection of XmlAnyElementAttribute objects.

XmlArrayAttribute

Specifies that the XmlSerializer must serialize a particular class member as an array of XML elements.

XmlArrayItemAttribute

Specifies the derived types that the XmlSerializer can place in a serialized array.

XmlArrayItemAttributes

Represents a collection of XmlArrayItemAttribute objects.

XmlAttributeAttribute

Specifies that the XmlSerializer must serialize the class member as an XML attribute.

XmlAttributeOverrides

Allows you to override property, field, and class attributes when you use the XmlSerializer to serialize or deserialize an object.

XmlAttributes

Represents a collection of attribute objects that control how the XmlSerializer serializes and deserializes an object.

XmlChoiceIdentifierAttribute

Specifies that the member can be further detected by using an enumeration.

XmlElementAttribute

Indicates that a public field or property represents an XML element when the XmlSerializer serializes or deserializes the object that contains it.

XmlElementAttributes

Represents a collection of XmlElementAttribute objects used by the XmlSerializer to override the default way it serializes a class.

XmlEnumAttribute

Controls how the XmlSerializer serializes an enumeration member.

XmlIgnoreAttribute

Instructs the Serialize method of the XmlSerializer not to serialize the public field or public read/write property value.

XmlIncludeAttribute

Allows the XmlSerializer to recognize a type when it serializes or deserializes an object.

XmlNamespaceDeclarationsAttribute

Specifies that the target property, parameter, return value, or class member contains prefixes associated with namespaces that are used within an XML document.

XmlRootAttribute

Controls XML serialization of the attribute target as an XML root element.

XmlSchemaProviderAttribute

When applied to a type, stores the name of a static method of the type that returns an XML schema and a XmlQualifiedName (or XmlSchemaType for anonymous types) that controls the serialization of the type.

XmlSerializer

Serializes and deserializes objects into and from XML documents. The XmlSerializer enables you to control how objects are encoded into XML.

XmlSerializerNamespaces

Contains the XML namespaces and prefixes that the XmlSerializer uses to generate qualified names in an XML-document instance.

XmlTextAttribute

Indicates to the XmlSerializer that the member must be treated as XML text when the class that contains it is serialized or deserialized.
