XamlSchemaContext.TryGetCompatibleXamlNamespace Method (String, String)

.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.

Returns the success or failure of a request for a compatible XAML namespace. A successful request reports that XAML namespace as an out parameter.

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

abstract TryGetCompatibleXamlNamespace : 
        xamlNamespace:string *
        compatibleNamespace:string byref -> bool
override TryGetCompatibleXamlNamespace : 
        xamlNamespace:string *
        compatibleNamespace:string byref -> bool


Type: System.String

The xmlns string for the XAML namespace to be checked for a compatible result.

Type: System.String

When this method returns, the xmlns string for a compatible XAML namespace request. This might be identical to xamlNamespace if the method returns false.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if compatibleNamespace contains a usable result; otherwise, false.

Exception Condition

xamlNamespace is null.

Internally, this method uses the following lookup order:

  1. An internally implemented compatibility dictionary, which may have been populated by an earlier lookup.

  2. The XmlnsCompatibleWithAttribute parameter evaluation.

If no other compatible namespace is discovered and this method returns false, the compatibleNamespace parameter output might have the same value as the xamlNamespace input.
