IDesignerDataSchema Interface

Defines methods for retrieving data-store schema information.

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

public interface IDesignerDataSchema

The IDesignerDataSchema type exposes the following members.

Public methodGetSchemaItemsGets a collection of specified schema items.
Public methodSupportsSchemaClassReturns a value indicating whether the data store contains the specified data-schema object.

Classes that implement the IDesignerDataSchema interface retrieve schema information from a data store and return it to the user interface, typically to populate UI elements that enable the user to specify the data-store object that they want to work with.

The IDesignerDataSchema interface provides two methods: the GetSchemaItems method, which returns the requested schema objects, and the SupportsSchemaClass method, which indicates whether a specified data-schema object is supported by the data store.
