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

Public Shared Function GetXmlNamespaceManager (
	target As DependencyObject
) As XmlNamespaceManager


Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The object from which to get namespace information.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNamespaceManager

A returned object used for viewing XML namespaces that relate to the binding on the passed object element. This object should be cast as System.Xml.XmlNamespaceManager.

Exception Condition

The target parameter cannot be null.

This method supports attached property usage for the XmlNamespaceManager attached property.

XML namespace managers are relevant only if the data in the binding came from an XML binding source (XmlDataProvider object).

If a namespace manager was not specifically applied either in the original data source creation or by subsequently calling SetXmlNamespaceManager on the binding, then this method will return null.

This method will always return null if the data behind the binding is not XML.
