XmlDocument.Implementation Property

Gets the XmlImplementation object for the current document.

Namespace: System.Xml
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

public XmlImplementation Implementation { get; }
/** @property */
public XmlImplementation get_Implementation ()

public function get Implementation () : XmlImplementation

Property Value

The XmlImplementation object for the current document.

XmlDocument objects created from the same XmlImplementation share the same XmlNameTable. This allows users to compare attribute and element names as objects rather than strings.

Although the XmlDocument objects share the same implementation, to move nodes from one document to another you must use the ImportNode method.

The following example creates a new XmlDocument using another document's implementation.

XmlDocument doc1 = new XmlDocument();
 doc1.Load("books.xml");
 XmlDocument doc2 = doc1.Implementation.CreateDocument();

XmlDocument doc1 = new XmlDocument();
doc1.Load("books.xml");
XmlDocument doc2 = doc1.get_Implementation().CreateDocument();
