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.
