MetaData.ConvertTypesToSchemaToFile Method (Type[], SdlType, String)

Converts the specified object types to XML schema, and writes it to a file that is specified by name.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices
Assembly:  System.Runtime.Remoting (in System.Runtime.Remoting.dll)

public static void ConvertTypesToSchemaToFile(
	Type[] types,
	SdlType sdlType,
	string path


Type: System.Type[]

The object types to convert to XML schema.

Type: System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices.SdlType

The type of service description language to use for the XML schema.

Type: System.String

The path of the XML file.


If a file with the specified name already exists, it is overwritten.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the ConvertTypesToSchemaToFile method to write the schema definition of the specified types to a file.

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices;

public class Test {

   class TestClass {
      int integer;
      public double dFloatingPoint = 5.1999;

      public int Int {
         get { return integer; }
         set { integer = value; }

      public void Print () {
         Console.WriteLine("The double is equal to {0}.", dFloatingPoint);

   public static void Main() {

      Type[] types = new Type[4];

      String s = "a";
      int i = -5;
      double d = 3.1415;
      TestClass tc = new TestClass();

      types[0] = s.GetType();
      types[1] = i.GetType();
      types[2] = d.GetType();
      types[3] = tc.GetType();

      MetaData.ConvertTypesToSchemaToFile(types, SdlType.Wsdl, "test.xml");
