Table of atomized string objects.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Add||When overridden in a derived class, atomizes the specified string and adds it to the XmlNameTable.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Get||When overridden in a derived class, gets the atomized string containing the same value as the specified string.|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
Several classes, such as XmlReader, use the XmlNameTable class internally to store attribute and element names. When an element or attribute name occurs multiple times in an XML document, it is stored only once in the XmlNameTable.
The names are stored as common language runtime (CLR) object types. This enables you to do object comparisons on these strings rather than a more expensive string comparison. These string objects are referred to as atomized strings.
XmlNameTable is implemented in the class.
