XmlSchemaSet.Contains Method (String)

Indicates whether an XML Schema definition language (XSD) schema with the specified target namespace URI is in the XmlSchemaSet.

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

public bool Contains(
	string targetNamespace
)

Parameters

targetNamespace
Type: System.String
The schema targetNamespace property.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
Returns true if a schema with the specified target namespace URI is in the XmlSchemaSet; otherwise, false.

Schemas that are indirectly added to the XmlSchemaSet are detected by the Contains method; for example, imported schemas. As a result, if a schema for the http://www.contoso.com/retail namespace which imports a schema for the http://www.contoso.com/books namespace is added to the XmlSchemaSet, calling Contains with http://www.contoso.com/books as a parameter, it returns true.
