Gets or sets the namespace of the DataColumn.

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

public string Namespace { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The namespace of the DataColumn.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The namespace already has data.

The Namespace property is used when reading and writing an XML document into a DataTable in the DataSet using the ReadXml, WriteXml, ReadXmlSchema, or WriteXmlSchema methods.

The namespace of an XML document is used to scope XML attributes and elements when read into a DataSet. For example, a DataSet contains a schema read from a document that has the namespace "myCompany," and an attempt is made to read data (with the ReadXml method) from a document that has the namespace "theirCompany." Any data that does not correspond to the existing schema will be ignored.
