XmlSchemaInclude Class

 

Represents the include element from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This class is used to include declarations and definitions from an external schema. The included declarations and definitions are then available for processing in the containing schema.

public class XmlSchemaInclude : XmlSchemaExternal

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSchemaInclude()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaInclude class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAnnotation

Gets or sets the annotation property.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyId

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

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_pubpropertySchema

Gets or sets the XmlSchema for the referenced schema.(Inherited from XmlSchemaExternal.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySchemaLocation

Gets or sets the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) location for the schema, which tells the schema processor where the schema physically resides.(Inherited from XmlSchemaExternal.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySourceUri

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

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUnhandledAttributes

Gets and sets the qualified attributes, which do not belong to the schema target namespace.(Inherited from XmlSchemaExternal.)

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.)

The included schema document must meet one of the following conditions:

The included schema must have the same target namespace as the containing schema document.

OR

The included schema cannot have a specified targetNamespace; the targetNamespace attribute must be null.

XmlSchemaInclude adds all the schema components from included schemas that have the same target namespace (or no specified target namespace) to the containing schema.

The following example creates the include element.

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Xsl;
using System.Xml.Schema;

public class ImportIncludeSample
{

    private static void ValidationCallBack(object sender, ValidationEventArgs args)
    {

        if (args.Severity == XmlSeverityType.Warning)
            Console.Write("WARNING: ");
        else if (args.Severity == XmlSeverityType.Error)
            Console.Write("ERROR: ");

        Console.WriteLine(args.Message);
    }


    public static void Main()
    {


        XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();
        schema.ElementFormDefault = XmlSchemaForm.Qualified;
        schema.TargetNamespace = "http://www.w3.org/2001/05/XMLInfoset";

        // <xs:import namespace="http://www.example.com/IPO" />                            
        XmlSchemaImport import = new XmlSchemaImport();
        import.Namespace = "http://www.example.com/IPO";
        schema.Includes.Add(import);

        // <xs:include schemaLocation="example.xsd" />               
        XmlSchemaInclude include = new XmlSchemaInclude();
        include.SchemaLocation = "example.xsd";
        schema.Includes.Add(include);

        XmlSchemaSet schemaSet = new XmlSchemaSet();
        schemaSet.ValidationEventHandler += new ValidationEventHandler(ValidationCallBack);
        schemaSet.Add(schema);
        schemaSet.Compile();

        XmlSchema compiledSchema = null;

        foreach (XmlSchema schema1 in schemaSet.Schemas())
        {
            compiledSchema = schema1;
        }

        XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(new NameTable());
        nsmgr.AddNamespace("xs", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
        compiledSchema.Write(Console.Out, nsmgr);

    }/* Main() */

The following XML is generated for this code example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="IBM437"?>
<schema elementFormDefault="qualified" targetNamespace="http://www.w3.org/2001/05/XMLInfoset" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <import namespace="http://www.example.com/IPO" />
  <include schemaLocation="example.xsd" />
</schema>
