CodeIdentifiers Class

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Maintains a group of names for related code entities or type mappings that are generated by the .NET Framework's XML serialization infrastructure.


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

public class CodeIdentifiers

The CodeIdentifiers type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeIdentifiers()Initializes a new instance of the CodeIdentifiers class.
Public methodCodeIdentifiers(Boolean)Initializes a new instance of the CodeIdentifiers class and determines whether code identifiers are case sensitive.

Public propertyUseCamelCasingGets or sets a value that indicates whether the instance uses camel case.

Public methodAddAdds a named code entity or type mapping to the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope.
Public methodAddReservedPrevents a specified name from being used within the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope.
Public methodAddUniqueAdds a named code entity or type mapping to the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope, ensuring that the name is unique within the scope.
Public methodClearRemoves all code entities or type mappings, including their names, from the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsInUseDetermines whether a specified name is already being used within the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope.
Public methodMakeRightCaseEnsures that the input is of the correct case by modifying the name according to the value of the UseCamelCasing property.
Public methodMakeUniqueDetermines whether the input name conflicts with another name within the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope and, if it does, generates a modified string.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRemoveRemoves from the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope the code entity or type mapping identified by the input name.
Public methodRemoveReservedRemoves the input name from the CodeIdentifiers instance's reserved names.
Public methodToArrayReturns an array of the code entities or type mappings within the CodeIdentifiers instance's scope.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The following list identifies tools and classes that use the CodeIdentifiers:

Instead of using the CodeIdentifiers class directly, use the aforementioned tools or classes. If you want to control the names of code entities that are bound to XML Schema or Web service definitions, use the associated attributes.

Depending on its scope, a CodeIdentifiers instance can be used to maintain the names of any of the items in the following list:

  • Types, methods, or fields.

  • The parameters and return value of a method corresponding to WSDL input and output messages.

  • Objects within a ServiceDescription instance that can be serialized to a WSDL document.

Typically, the class is used to avoid naming collisions between code entities within a particular scope, including collisions with the name of a containing entity.
