ContractNamespaceAttribute Class

ContractNamespaceAttribute Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Specifies the CLR namespace and XML namespace of the data contract.


Namespace:  System.Runtime.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Runtime.Serialization (in System.Runtime.Serialization.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Module, Inherited = false, 
	AllowMultiple = true)]
public sealed class ContractNamespaceAttribute : Attribute

The ContractNamespaceAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodContractNamespaceAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ContractNamespaceAttribute class using a specified namespace.

Public propertyClrNamespaceGets or sets the CLR namespace of the data contract type.
Public propertyContractNamespaceGets the namespace of the data contract members.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Apply the ContractNamespaceAttribute attribute to an assembly that contains types to which the DataContractAttribute has been applied. The ContractNamespaceAttribute enables you to set a namespace that is different than the one generated when the type is serialized.

If you are using a type to conform to an existing data contract, you must match the namespace of the existing contract by using the ContractNamespaceAttribute (or the Namespace property of the DataContractAttribute class).
