DataTable.WriteXmlSchema Method (String, Boolean)

Writes the current data structure of the DataTable as an XML schema to the specified file. To save the schema for the table and all its descendants, set the writeHierarchy parameter to true.

Namespace:  System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

member WriteXmlSchema : 
        fileName:string * 
        writeHierarchy:bool -> unit

Parameters

fileName
Type: System.String

The name of the file to use.

writeHierarchy
Type: System.Boolean

If true, write the schema of the current table and all its descendants. If false (the default value), write the schema for the current table only.

Use the WriteXmlSchema method to write the schema for a DataTable to an XML document. The schema includes table, relation, and constraint definitions.

The XML schema is written using the XSD standard.

To write the data to an XML document, use the WriteXml method.

Normally the WriteXmlSchema method writes the schema only for the current table. To write the schema for the current table and its entire descendant, related tables, call the method with the writeHierarchy parameter set to true.
