XmlWriter.WriteQualifiedName Method

When overridden in a derived class, writes out the namespace-qualified name. This method looks up the prefix that is in scope for the given namespace.

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

public virtual void WriteQualifiedName(
	string localName,
	string ns
)

Parameters

localName
Type: System.String
The local name to write.
ns
Type: System.String
The namespace URI for the name.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

localName is either null or String.Empty.

localName is not a valid name.

If ns maps to the current default namespace, no prefix is generated.

When writing attribute values, this method generates a prefix if ns is not found. When writing element content, it throws an exception if ns is not found.

NoteNote

If a class derived from the XmlWriter does not override this method localName is not checked to be a valid W3C XML name. In such case, before calling this method, the validity of the string can be checked by IsName method.

The example writes the following element:

<root xmlns:x="urn:abc">
  <item href="#x:test"/>
</root>

XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
settings.Indent = true;
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
using (XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(Console.Out, settings))
{
    writer.WriteStartElement("root");
    writer.WriteAttributeString("xmlns", "x", null, "urn:abc");
    writer.WriteStartElement("item");
    writer.WriteStartAttribute("href", null);
    writer.WriteString("#");
    writer.WriteQualifiedName("test", "urn:abc");
    writer.WriteEndAttribute();
    writer.WriteEndElement();
    writer.WriteEndElement();
}
