NameTable Property

XmlValidatingReader.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

XmlNameTable that enables you to get the atomized version of a string within the node.


The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

All node and attribute names returned from XmlValidatingReader are atomized by using the NameTable. When the same name is returned multiple times (for example, Customer), the same String object will be 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.
