NameTable Property

XmlNodeReader.NameTable Property

Gets the XmlNameTable associated with this implementation.

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

public override XmlNameTable NameTable { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNameTable
The XmlNameTable enabling you to get the atomized version of a string within the node.

NoteNote

In the .NET Framework 2.0, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in the .NET Framework. For more information, see the Remarks section in the XmlReader reference page.

All node and attribute names returned from this class are atomized using the NameTable. When the same name is returned multiple times (for example, Customer), then the same String object is returned for that name. This makes it possible for you to write efficient code that does object comparisons on these strings instead of expensive string comparisons.
