SyndicationPerson.Name Property

Gets and sets the name of the SyndicationPerson.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Syndication
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the person.

When serialized to Atom 1.0, the Name property is written as a <name> element. The <name> element appears within an <author> or <contributor> element, which depends upon which collection (authors or contributors) the SyndicationPerson is added to.

When serialized to RSS 2.0, the Name property is written as an <a10:name> element. The <a10:name> element appears within a <managingEditor>, <a10:author>, or <a10:contributor> element. If only one SyndicationPerson is added to the authors collection, the <a10:name> element is written within the <managingEditor> element. If more than one SyndicationPerson is added to the authors collection, the <a10:name> element is written within the <a10:author> element. If the SyndicationPerson is added to the contributors collection, the <a10:name> element is written within the <a10:contributor> element.

The following code shows how to set the name of a SyndicationPerson.

SyndicationPerson sp = new SyndicationPerson();
sp.Name = "Jesper Aaberg";
