CodeNamespace.Name Property

Sets or gets the name of the CodeNamespace object.

Namespace:  EnvDTE
Assembly:  EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)

string this { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string representing the name of the CodeNamespace.

Name returns the name specified in code for the namespace declaration and FullName represents the compiler name.

For example, given:

Namespace A

  Namespace B.Inner

End Namespace

End Namespace

The outer namespace returns .Name = A and the inner namespace returns .Name = B.Inner.

FullName returns the full name of the namespace including the names of all parent namespaces. For example, the .FullName value returned for the inner namespace would be A.B.Inner. If you are using Visual Basic or Visual C# and a root namespace named "Outer" exists, then .FullName would return Outer.A.B.Inner.


The values of code model elements such as classes, structs, functions, attributes, delegates, and so forth can be non-deterministic after making certain kinds of edits, meaning that their values cannot be relied upon to always remain the same. For more information, see the section Code Model Element Values Can Change in Discovering Code by Using the Code Model (Visual Basic).
