XmlQualifiedName Class

Represents an XML qualified name.

Namespace: System.Xml
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

<SerializableAttribute> _
Public Class XmlQualifiedName
Dim instance As XmlQualifiedName

/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
public class XmlQualifiedName
public class XmlQualifiedName

An XML qualified name is a namespace qualified local name in the format of namespace:localname.

Because prefixes are only required when XML is persisted or read, they are irrelevant for XmlQualifiedName objects. This class assumes that prefixes are irrelevant. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure the local name does not contain a ":".

For an example using the XmlQualifiedName class, see XmlSchemaAll.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
