#527 – Defining a Nested Namespace Using Dot Notation

If you are defining a type that exists in a nested namespace, there are two ways to define the namespace.  You can nest the namespace keywords or you can use a dot notation to define the full namespace path.

Let’s say that we’re defining the new type DogLogger and placing it in the DogLibrary.Utility namespace.  You can nest the namespace keywords as shown below.

namespace DogLibrary
{
    namespace Utility
    {
        public class DogLogger
        {
        }
    }
}

You can also just include a single namespace keyword, fully specifying the DogLibrary.Utility namespace.

namespace DogLibrary.Utility
{
    public class DogLogger
    {
    }
}
