XmlSchemaGroup Class

Represents the group element from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This class defines groups at the schema level that are referenced from the complex types. It groups a set of element declarations so that they can be incorporated as a group into complex type definitions.

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

public class XmlSchemaGroup : XmlSchemaAnnotated

The XmlSchemaGroup type exposes the following members.
