Querying Properties within csproj files using XML

20 Jul

Another short and sweet post.  As part of the project I’m currently working on, I needed to use the value stored in the RootNamespace Node within the Project file (.csproj).

Now as a csproj file is essentially an XML document we can use the XML libraries in Visual studio to obtain the values we are after.

Heres the code I used to return the value from the RootNamespace Element.  (Note: Remember to set the Namespace!!)
