NamespaceDeclaration Class

Declares the identifier and the prefix of a XAML namespace by storing these string values as separate properties.


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

public class NamespaceDeclaration

The NamespaceDeclaration type exposes the following members.

Public methodNamespaceDeclarationInitializes a new instance of the NamespaceDeclaration class using initial property values.

Public propertyNamespaceGets the identifier component of a NamespaceDeclaration.
Public propertyPrefixGets the prefix that is used as the XAML namespace mapping prefix for a NamespaceDeclaration.

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 a hash function for a particular type. (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.)

NamespaceDeclaration represents XAML namespace information as part of a XAML node stream. The NamespaceDeclaration class is a node type that is not truly an object or member; instead, it is a discrete node type.

In the XAML node stream, a NamespaceDeclaration is encountered just prior to the object or member to which that XAML namespace applies.

By convention, the identifier of a XAML namespace resembles a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). However, the Namespace property of NamespaceDeclaration is of type String. The APIs of .NET Framework XAML Services usually treat XAML namespace identifiers as strings. The relative versus absolute distinctions in the true Uri type are irrelevant for identifying a XAML (or XML) namespace. The URI-as-namespace convention is also typical in XML.

Objects of this type are used as input for the XamlObjectWriter.WriteNamespace method when writing XAML node stream information into an object graph. Objects of this type are used as input for the XamlXmlWriter.WriteNamespace method when writing XAML node stream information as XML for serialization.

A namespace declaration may have a String.Empty value for the prefix. A String.Empty prefix represents a declaration of the default XAML namespace.
