XmlDocument.Implementation Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets the XmlImplementation object for the current document.

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

Public ReadOnly Property Implementation As XmlImplementation

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlImplementation

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.

Dim doc1 As New XmlDocument()
Dim doc2 As XmlDocument = doc1.Implementation.CreateDocument()
