NamespaceMapEntry Class

Provides information that the XamlTypeMapper uses for mapping between an XML namespace, a CLR namespace, and the assembly that contains the relevant types for that CLR namespace.


Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml

public class NamespaceMapEntry

The NamespaceMapEntry type exposes the following members.

Public methodNamespaceMapEntry()Initializes a new instance of the NamespaceMapEntry class.
Public methodNamespaceMapEntry(String, String, String)Initializes a new instance of the NamespaceMapEntry class, using provided XML namespace, CLR namespace, and assembly information.

Public propertyAssemblyNameGets or sets the assembly name that contains the types in the CLR namespace.
Public propertyClrNamespaceGets or sets the CLR namespace that contains the types being mapped.
Public propertyXmlNamespaceGets or sets the mapping prefix for the XML namespace being mapped to.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This type is specific to the WPF implementation of XAML. If you use it in a general XAML implementation, you must include the WPF assemblies.

Alternative techniques that do not require including WPF assemblies include referencing the XAML schema context (available in a service provider context from IXamlSchemaContextProvider, or from XamlObjectWriter.SchemaContext from a XAML node loop or general XAML writer frame of reference.) The XAML schema context includes API for returning its assemblies, preferred prefix mappings, and XAML namespace information.
