An annotation element can contain one or more XmlSchemaAppInfo instances (information for applications) and XmlSchemaDocumentation instances (comments or text for humans).

An annotation is used to store extra information about the schema or its elements. These notes are specified for human consumption, xs:documentation, or by software, xs:appinfo. Annotation can be the first element of most schema elements or anywhere under the schema element.

The following example creates the annotation element.

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

class XMLSchemaExamples
{
    public static void Main()
    {

        XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();

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

        // <xs:annotation>
        XmlSchemaAnnotation annNorthwestStates = new XmlSchemaAnnotation();
        simpleType.Annotation = annNorthwestStates;

        // <xs:documentation>States in the Pacific Northwest of US</xs:documentation>
        XmlSchemaDocumentation docNorthwestStates = new XmlSchemaDocumentation();
        annNorthwestStates.Items.Add(docNorthwestStates);
        docNorthwestStates.Markup = TextToNodeArray("States in the Pacific Northwest of US");

        XmlSchema compiledSchema = null;

        foreach (XmlSchema schema1 in schemaSet.Schemas())

        }

        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);
    }

    public static XmlNode[] TextToNodeArray(string text)
    {
        XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
        return new XmlNode[1] { doc.CreateTextNode(text) };
    }

}

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