DDEX Data View Support
The Data Designer Extensibility (DDEX) SDK provides two schema definition files (.xsd) to support external data object hierarchies in the Visual Studio Server Explorer. The first of these files, DataObjectSupport.xsd, defines an XML schema behind a data object framework to support programmatic manipulation of the data objects themselves. This schema is discussed in DDEX Data Object Support.
The second schema, DataViewSupport.xsd, defines the XML required to build a data view framework that dynamically builds custom data view hierarchies exposed in Server Explorer. The data view supports the Visual Studio design-time experience, offering drag-and-drop support from Server Explorer, as well as binding to custom commands on context menus.
