XmlReader.NameTable Property

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

abstract NameTable : XmlNameTable with get

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNameTable

The XmlNameTable enabling you to get the atomized version of a string within the node.

Exception Condition

An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”

All node and attribute names returned from XmlReader are atomized using the NameTable. When the same name is returned multiple times (for example, Customer), then 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.
