XmlArrayAttribute.Namespace Property

Gets or sets the namespace of the XML element.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public string Namespace { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The namespace of the XML element.

The Namespace property allows you to create qualified XML element names. The Namespace property conforms to the rules for creating an XML namespace as found in the 1999 World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) document, Namespaces in XML.

To create namespaces that are associated with a prefix, you must create an instance of the XmlSerializerNamespaces class that contains the namespaces and prefixes used in the XML document. As you set the namespace for each XmlArrayAttribute, it must match one of the namespaces in XmlSerializerNamespaces. When the XML is generated, each array is correctly prefixed with the prefix associated with the specified namespace.
