XmlArrayAttribute.Form Property

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

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the XML element name generated by the XmlSerializer is qualified or unqualified.

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

public XmlSchemaForm Form { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.Schema.XmlSchemaForm
One of the XmlSchemaForm values. The default is XmlSchemaForm.None.

The Form property determines whether an XML element name is qualified or unqualified. The Form property conforms to the 1999 World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) document, Namespaces in XML.

If the Namespace property is set to any value, attempting to set the Form property to XmlSchemaForm.Unqualified throws an exception.

The default setting, XmlSchemaForm.None, instructs the XmlSerializer to check the schema for the XML document to determine whether the namespace is qualified.

When the XmlSerializer reads the schema, the Form value for both the Name and Number is XmlSchemaForm.None, but the Name element is qualified, while the Number element is unqualified.
