Xmlns Property

XmlAttributes.Xmlns Property

 

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether to keep all namespace declarations when an object containing a member that returns an XmlSerializerNamespaces object is overridden.

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

Public Property Xmlns As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the namespace declarations should be kept; otherwise, false.

The following example contains a class named Student. The class contains a member named MyNamespaces that returns an XmlSerializerNamespaces object. The example creates an XmlAttributes object that is added to an instance of the XmlAttributeOverrides class. The Xmlns property is set to true, which instructs the XmlSerializer to preserve the namespaces when the serialization of the Student object is overridden.
