Extensions.GetSchemaInfo Method (XElement)

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

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

<ExtensionAttribute> _
Public Shared Function GetSchemaInfo ( _
	source As XElement _
) As IXmlSchemaInfo


Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement

An XElement that has been previously validated.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Schema.IXmlSchemaInfo
A IXmlSchemaInfo that contains the post-schema-validation infoset (PSVI) for an XElement.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type XElement. 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 element. For example, you can determine the dynamic schema type of the element.

You use the SchemaElement property to get a partial validation type (XmlSchemaElement). You can use it to revalidate a sub-tree with an element at its root without validating an entire document.

For an example of this property, see Validate.

The following example populates the tree with a PSVI. After validation, it prints all elements and attributes in the tree that are invalid according to the PSVI.

Private Sub DumpInvalidNodes(ByVal el As XElement)
    If el.GetSchemaInfo.Validity <> XmlSchemaValidity.Valid Then
        Console.WriteLine("Invalid Element {0}", _
            el _
            .AncestorsAndSelf _
            .InDocumentOrder() _
            .Aggregate("", _
                Function(ByVal s, ByVal i) s + "/" + i.Name.ToString()))
    End If
    For Each att As XAttribute In el.Attributes()
        If att.GetSchemaInfo.Validity <> XmlSchemaValidity.Valid Then
            Console.WriteLine("Invalid Attribute {0}", _
                att _
                .Parent _
                .AncestorsAndSelf() _
                .InDocumentOrder() _
                .Aggregate("", _
                    Function(ByVal s, ByVal i) s + "/" + i.Name.ToString()) + _
                    "/@" + att.Name.ToString())
        End If
    For Each child As XElement In el.Elements()
End Sub

Dim errors As Boolean = False

Private Sub XSDErrors(ByVal o As Object, ByVal e As ValidationEventArgs)
    Console.WriteLine("{0}", e.Message)
    errors = True
End Sub

Sub Main()
    Dim xsdMarkup As XDocument = _
    <?xml version='1.0'?>
    <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema'>
        <xsd:simpleType name='GCType'>
            <xsd:restriction base='xsd:token'>
                <xsd:enumeration value='AAA'/>
                <xsd:enumeration value='BBB'/>
        <xsd:element name='Root'>
                    <xsd:element name='Child1' minOccurs='1' maxOccurs='1'>
                                <xsd:element name='GrandChild1' type='GCType'/>
                                <xsd:element name='GrandChild2' type='GCType'/>
                                <xsd:element name='GrandChild3' type='GCType'/>

    Dim schemas As XmlSchemaSet = New XmlSchemaSet()
    schemas.Add("", xsdMarkup.CreateReader)

    Dim doc1 As XDocument = _
    <?xml version='1.0'?>

    Console.WriteLine("Validating doc1 ...")
    errors = False
    doc1.Validate(schemas, AddressOf XSDErrors, True)
    Console.WriteLine("doc1 {0}", IIf(errors, "did not validate", "validated"))
End Sub

This example produces the following output:

Validating doc1 ...
The 'GrandChild2' element is invalid - The value 'ZZZ' is invalid according to its datatype 'GCType' - The Enumeration constraint failed.
The 'GrandChild3' element is invalid - The value 'ZZZ' is invalid according to its datatype 'GCType' - The Enumeration constraint failed.
doc1 did not validate
Invalid Element /Root
Invalid Element /Root/Child1
Invalid Element /Root/Child1/GrandChild2
Invalid Element /Root/Child1/GrandChild3
