XmlSchemaNotation Class

Represents the notation element from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). An XML Schema notation declaration is a reconstruction of XML 1.0 NOTATION declarations. The purpose of notations is to describe the format of non-XML data within an XML document.

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

public class XmlSchemaNotation : XmlSchemaAnnotated
public class XmlSchemaNotation extends XmlSchemaAnnotated
public class XmlSchemaNotation extends XmlSchemaAnnotated

The following example shows the use of the XmlSchemaNotation class.

using System;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Schema;

class XMLSchemaExamples
{
    public static void Main()
    {

        XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();

        // <xs:notation name="jpeg" public="image/jpeg" system="viewer.exe" />
        XmlSchemaNotation notation = new XmlSchemaNotation();
        notation.Name = "jpeg";
        notation.Public = "image/jpeg";
        notation.System = "viewer.exe";

        schema.Items.Add(notation);

        XmlSchemaSet schemaSet = new XmlSchemaSet();
        schemaSet.ValidationEventHandler += new ValidationEventHandler(ValidationCallbackOne);
        schemaSet.Add(schema);
        schemaSet.Compile();

        XmlSchema compiledSchema = null;

        foreach (XmlSchema schema1 in schemaSet.Schemas())
        {
            compiledSchema = schema1;
        }

        XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(new NameTable());
        nsmgr.AddNamespace("xs", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
        compiledSchema.Write(Console.Out, nsmgr);
    }

    public static void ValidationCallbackOne(object sender, ValidationEventArgs args)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(args.Message);
    }
}

The following XML file is generated for the preceding code example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="IBM437"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <xs:notation name="jpeg" public="image/jpeg" system="viewer.exe" />
</xs:schema>
