XmlSchemaSet::ValidationEventHandler Event

Specifies an event handler for receiving information about XML Schema definition language (XSD) schema validation errors.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Schema
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public:
 event ValidationEventHandler^ ValidationEventHandler {
	void add (ValidationEventHandler^ value);
	void remove (ValidationEventHandler^ value);
}

Sets an event handler for receiving information about schema validation errors when the Add or Compile methods of the XmlSchemaSet are called.

If an event handler is not defined, an XmlSchemaException is thrown on any validation errors where the XmlSeverityType is Error. Exceptions are not thrown for validation errors with an XmlSeverityType of Warning.

The following code example illustrates adding a ValidationEventHandler to capture errors and warnings when validating an XML document against a schema.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

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

static void booksSettingsValidationEventHandler( Object^ /*sender*/, ValidationEventArgs^ e )
{
   if ( e->Severity == XmlSeverityType::Warning )
   {
      Console::Write( L"WARNING: " );
      Console::WriteLine( e->Message );
   }
   else 
   if ( e->Severity == XmlSeverityType::Error )
   {
      Console::Write( L"ERROR: " );
      Console::WriteLine( e->Message );
   }
}

int main()
{
   XmlReaderSettings^ booksSettings = gcnew XmlReaderSettings;
   booksSettings->Schemas->Add( L"http://www.contoso.com/books", L"books.xsd" );
   booksSettings->ValidationType = ValidationType::Schema;
   booksSettings->ValidationEventHandler += gcnew ValidationEventHandler( booksSettingsValidationEventHandler );
   XmlReader^ books = XmlReader::Create( L"books.xml", booksSettings );
   while ( books->Read() )
   {}

   return 0;
}

The example uses the books.xml file as an input.

The example uses the books.xsd file as an input.
