XmlSerializationReader.DecodeName Property


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Gets or sets a value that determines whether XML strings are translated into valid .NET Framework type names.

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

protected bool DecodeName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if XML strings are decoded into valid .NET Framework type names; otherwise, false.

The EncodeName method writes valid XML from invalid sources. For example, the ColumnName property of the DataColumn class can contain spaces, which are invalid as XML. The DecodeName reads the encoded XML and restores it to the original value. However, the Read method of the XmlSchema class cannot read such encoded XML. In that case, set the EscapeName property to false to disable the encoding of the XML.
