Implements a single-threaded XmlNameTable.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
|Add(Char(), Int32, Int32)|
Atomizes the specified string and adds it to the NameTable.(Overrides XmlNameTable.Add(Char(), Int32, Int32).)
Atomizes the specified string and adds it to the NameTable.(Overrides XmlNameTable.Add(String).)
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)
|Get(Char(), Int32, Int32)|
Gets the atomized string containing the same characters as the specified range of characters in the given array.(Overrides XmlNameTable.Get(Char(), Int32, Int32).)
Gets the atomized string with the specified value.(Overrides XmlNameTable.Get(String).)
Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
Several classes, such as XmlDocument and XmlReader, use the NameTable class internally to store attribute and element names. When an element or attribute name occurs multiple times in an XML document, it is stored only once in the NameTable.
The names are stored as common language runtime (CLR) object types. This enables you to do object comparisons on these strings rather than a more expensive string comparison. These string objects are referred to as atomized strings.
The following example compares two element names.
Dim nt As NameTable = New NameTable() Dim book As object = nt.Add("book") Dim price As object = nt.Add("price") ' Create the reader. Dim settings As XmlReaderSettings = New XmlReaderSettings() settings.NameTable = nt Dim reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create("books.xml", settings) reader.MoveToContent() reader.ReadToDescendant("book") If (System.Object.ReferenceEquals(book, reader.Name)) ' Do additional processing. End If
