Represents the documentation element from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This class specifies information to be read or used by humans within an annotation.

System::Object
  System.Xml.Schema::XmlSchemaObject
    System.Xml.Schema::XmlSchemaDocumentation

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

public ref class XmlSchemaDocumentation : public XmlSchemaObject

The XmlSchemaDocumentation type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkXmlSchemaDocumentationInitializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaDocumentation class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkLanguageGets or sets the xml:lang attribute. This serves as an indicator of the language used in the contents.
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkLineNumberGets or sets the line number in the file to which the schema element refers. (Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkLinePositionGets or sets the line position in the file to which the schema element refers. (Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkMarkupGets or sets an array of XmlNodes that represents the documentation child nodes.
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkNamespacesGets or sets the XmlSerializerNamespaces to use with this schema object. (Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkParentGets or sets the parent of this XmlSchemaObject. (Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkSourceGets or sets the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) source of the information.
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkSourceUriGets or sets the source location for the file that loaded the schema. (Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Information supplied within the XmlSchemaDocumentation class is not used in validation. However, it provides a standardized way to supply information that can be retrieved by tools.

The following example creates the documentation element.

#using <mscorlib.dll>
#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Xml;
using namespace System::Xml::Schema;

class XmlSchemaExamples
{
public:
	
	static void Main()
    {
        XmlSchema^ schema = gcnew XmlSchema();

        // <xs:simpleType name="northwestStates">

        simpleType->Name = "northwestStates";
        schema->Items->Add(simpleType);

        // <xs:annotation>
        XmlSchemaAnnotation^ annNorthwestStates = gcnew XmlSchemaAnnotation();
        simpleType->Annotation = annNorthwestStates;

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

        XmlNamespaceManager^ nsmgr = gcnew XmlNamespaceManager(gcnew NameTable());

    static void ValidationCallbackOne(Object^ sender, ValidationEventArgs^ args)

    static array<XmlNode^>^ TextToNodeArray(String^ text)

        XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument();
		array<XmlNode^>^ nodes = gcnew array<XmlNode^> {doc->CreateTextNode(text)};
		return nodes;
    }

};

int main()
{
	XmlSchemaExamples::Main();
    return 0;
};

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

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="IBM437"?>

	<xs:simpleType name="northwestStates">
