IXamlNamespaceResolver Interface

Describes a service that can return a XAML namespace that is based on its prefix as it is mapped in XAML markup.

Namespace:  System.Xaml
Assembly:  System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)

public interface IXamlNamespaceResolver

The IXamlNamespaceResolver type exposes the following members.

Public methodGetNamespaceRetrieves a XAML namespace identifier for the specified prefix string.
Public methodGetNamespacePrefixesReturns all the possible prefix-to-XAML namespace mappings (NamespaceDeclaration values) that are available in the active XAML schema context.

Type converters and markup extensions can query for IXamlNamespaceResolver as a service on the service context that is provided by a XAML object writer, when the XAML object writer invokes value conversion behavior. For more information, see Type Converters and Markup Extensions for XAML and Service Contexts Available to Type Converters and Markup Extensions.

WPF Usage Notes

This interface is also implemented as part of the WPF XAML implementation in the XmlnsDictionary class. XmlnsDictionary stores XAML namespace information and interacts with XAML processors to forward that information to the service context through the same IXamlTypeResolver interface.
