Namespace RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where is there a list (that a complete novice can read) with all the namespaces and what types can go into them, i am trying to create an XMLfile so i think i should use the namespace system.IO.File but when i write XMLfile.code = "  " so that the same file can be referred to in different parts of my program i am told that code is not a valid member of system.IO.File.

  • Hi,

    if you look at the Object Browser, you will see some Lines starting with {} these are the namespaces.
    Mark the thread as answered if the answer helps you. This helps others who have the same problem !

  • @Miller_a:

    The Object Browser and MSDN Library are a start.  But just reading a MASSIVE list of object names and their namespaces will probably not be too helpful.  I would suggest clicking the Learning tab at the top of this page and then using the Visual Basic Learning Center to get some of the basics down.


    @All:

    To give advice on where to find documentation on framework entities, please continue to post to this thread.

    To assist specificially with creating the Xml File, please post to the thread:  http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vblanguage/thread/4b2fb94e-9ff1-41d3-9779-87372b92b795

  • I am also one that tends to like to know all about what I am dealing with.

    But the .NET framework literally contains thousands and thousands of classes. So as others have said, trying to wade through them all is going to be very frustrating.

    And with XML ... it is even harder because there are about 8 different ways to process XML in your application. Which one to use really depends on the language you are using and the .NET framework version.

    In VB using .NET 3.5, I recommend using XML literals and XElement features.

  • You could take a look at this for a general overview:
