XmlTextReader.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

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.

All node and attribute names returned from XmlTextReader 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.
