XmlSchemaSimpleTypeUnion Class

Represents the union element for simple types from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). A union datatype can be used to specify the content of a simpleType. The value of the simpleType element must be any one of a set of alternative datatypes specified in the union. Union types are always derived types and must comprise at least two alternative datatypes.

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

  NameDescription
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkAnnotationGets or sets the annotation property. (Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkBaseMemberTypesGets an array of XmlSchemaSimpleType objects representing the type of the simpleType element based on the BaseTypes and MemberTypes values of the simple type.

A union type enables an element or attribute value to be one or more instances of one type drawn from the union of multiple atomic and list types.

The following example shows the use of XmlSchemaSimpleTypeUnion class.

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

class XMLSchemaExamples
{
    public static void Main()
    {

        XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();

        //<xs:simpleType name="StringOrIntType">
        XmlSchemaSimpleType StringOrIntType = new XmlSchemaSimpleType();
        StringOrIntType.Name = "StringOrIntType";
        schema.Items.Add(StringOrIntType);

        // <xs:union>
        XmlSchemaSimpleTypeUnion union = new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeUnion();
        StringOrIntType.Content = union;

        // <xs:simpleType>
        XmlSchemaSimpleType simpleType1 = new XmlSchemaSimpleType();
        union.BaseTypes.Add(simpleType1);

        // <xs:restriction base="xs:string"/>
        XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction restriction1 = new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction();
        restriction1.BaseTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("string", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
        simpleType1.Content = restriction1;

        // <xs:simpleType>
        XmlSchemaSimpleType simpleType2 = new XmlSchemaSimpleType();
        union.BaseTypes.Add(simpleType2);

        // <xs:restriction base="xs:int"/>
        XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction restriction2 = new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction();
        restriction2.BaseTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("int", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
        simpleType2.Content = restriction2;


        // <xs:element name="size" type="StringOrIntType"/>
        XmlSchemaElement elementSize = new XmlSchemaElement();
        elementSize.Name = "size";
        elementSize.SchemaTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("StringOrIntType");
        schema.Items.Add(elementSize);

        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 this code example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="IBM437"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

    <xs:simpleType name="StringOrIntType">
        <xs:union>
            <xs:simpleType>
                <xs:restriction base="xs:string"/>
            </xs:simpleType>

            <xs:simpleType>
                <xs:restriction base="xs:int"/>
            </xs:simpleType>
        </xs:union>
    </xs:simpleType>

    <xs:element name="size" type="StringOrIntType"/>
</xs:schema>
