XmlSchemaComplexContent Class

 

Represents the complexContent element from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This class represents the complex content model for complex types. It contains extensions or restrictions on a complex type that has either only elements or mixed content.

public class XmlSchemaComplexContent : XmlSchemaContentModel

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSchemaComplexContent()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaComplexContent class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAnnotation

Gets or sets the annotation property.(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyContent

Gets or sets the content.(Overrides XmlSchemaContentModel.Content.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyId

Gets or sets the string id.(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsMixed

Gets or sets information that determines if the type has a mixed content model.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLineNumber

Gets or sets the line number in the file to which the schema element refers.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLinePosition

Gets or sets the line position in the file to which the schema element refers.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyNamespaces

Gets or sets the XmlSerializerNamespaces to use with this schema object.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyParent

Gets or sets the parent of this XmlSchemaObject.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySourceUri

Gets or sets the source location for the file that loaded the schema.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUnhandledAttributes

Gets or sets the qualified attributes that do not belong to the current schema's target namespace.(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
