Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets the XmlNameTable used for atomized string comparisons.

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

public XmlNameTable NameTable { get; set; }
/** @property */
public XmlNameTable get_NameTable ()

/** @property */
public void set_NameTable (XmlNameTable value)

public function get NameTable () : XmlNameTable

public function set NameTable (value : XmlNameTable)

Property Value

The XmlNameTable that stores all the atomized strings used by all XmlReader instances created using this XmlReaderSettings object. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic). The created XmlReader instance will use a new empty NameTable if this value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Set this property to an XmlNameTable instance if you want to share a common name table among all the created XmlReader instances.


The NameTable class is not thread-safe. Therefore it cannot be shared between XmlReader objects that run simultaneously in different threads.
