XmlArrayItemAttribute.Namespace Property


Gets or sets the namespace of the generated 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 generated XML element.

The Namespace property conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium ( specification "Namespaces in XML."

To create namespaces to use in the XML document and associated prefixes, you must create an XmlSerializerNamespaces that contains all the prefix and namespace pairs. The namespace you set for each XmlArrayAttribute must be contained in the XmlSerializerNamespaces. When the XmlSerializer generates the document, it correctly prefixes the element name for each array item.

The following example applies an XmlArrayItemAttribute and sets the Namespace property.

public class Transportation
   // Sets the Namespace property.
   [XmlArrayItem(typeof(Car), Namespace = "")]
   public Vehicle[] MyVehicles;
