XmlTextReader.GetNamespacesInScope Method (XmlNamespaceScope)

 

Gets a collection that contains all namespaces currently in-scope.

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

public IDictionary<string, string> GetNamespacesInScope(
	XmlNamespaceScope scope
)

Parameters

scope
Type: System.Xml.XmlNamespaceScope

An XmlNamespaceScope value that specifies the type of namespace nodes to return.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IDictionary<String, String>

An IDictionary object that contains all the current in-scope namespaces. If the reader is not positioned on an element, an empty dictionary (no namespaces) is returned.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

The dictionary consists of a collection of namespace names keyed by prefix. It can be used to enumerate the in-scope namespaces. The dictionary is a disconnected copy of the namespace list of the reader. It remains unchanged as the reader position, current in-scope namespace list, changes.

The following table describes how the XmlNamespaceScope enumeration value affects the whether or not the default and built-in namespaces are returned by GetNamespacesInScope.
