Extensions::GetSchemaInfo Method (XAttribute)

Gets the post-schema-validation infoset (PSVI) of a validated attribute.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Schema
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

static IXmlSchemaInfo^ GetSchemaInfo(
	XAttribute^ source


Type: System.Xml.Linq::XAttribute

An XAttribute that has been previously validated.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Schema::IXmlSchemaInfo
A IXmlSchemaInfo that contains the post-schema-validation infoset for an XAttribute.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type XAttribute. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

You can use the IXmlSchemaInfo returned by this method to determine certain characteristics of a validated attribute. For example, you can determine if the attribute came from a default attribute value in an XSD.

You use the SchemaAttribute property to get a partial validation type (XmlSchemaAttribute). You can use it to revalidate an attribute without validating an entire document.

For an example of this property, see Validate.
