IXamlNameProvider Interface

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Provides a service that is used during save and write operations to input an object and return a XAML name.

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

public interface IXamlNameProvider


Retrieves the XAML name of the specified object.

This service is only relevant for a save path operation, such as when a XamlXmlWriter serializes an attributed value converter usage, and the type converter or value serializer supports serialization. A XamlObjectWriter does not provide the service in its service context.

A type converter or value serializer can access this service by using an available schema context as a service provider and then obtaining the IXamlNameProvider service that is implemented in that context. For more information, see Type Converters and Markup Extensions for XAML and Service Contexts Available to Type Converters and Markup Extensions.

To correctly use XAML-defined names, you may also need to obtain information about the acting XAML namescope and the INameScope value that represents it.
