static member GetSchemaInfo : 
        source:XAttribute -> IXmlSchemaInfo


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.

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.
