public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String

A String that contains the expanded XML name in the format {namespace}localname.

The following example calls WriteLine, passing an XName. This causes the ToString method to be called.


                XNamespace ns = "http://www.adventure-works.com";
XElement root = new XElement(ns + "Root", "content");
Console.WriteLine(root.Name);
Console.WriteLine(root.Name.LocalName);
Console.WriteLine(root.Name.Namespace);

This example produces the following output:

{http://www.adventure-works.com}Root
Root
http://www.adventure-works.com
