SharePoint Project Item Schema Reference

Visual Studio uses the SharePoint project item schema to validate the contents of .spdata files. An .spdata file specifies the contents and behavior of a SharePoint project item. For more information about the contents of SharePoint project items, see Creating Item Templates and Project Templates for SharePoint Project Items.

The SharePoint project item schema is named ProjectItemModelSchema.xsd and is installed by default in %Program Files (x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Xml\Schemas.

The root element is the ProjectItem element. The following table describes all of the elements defined by the schema.
