Particle types are usually interchangeable. Particle can be a local element declaration or reference to a global element declaration (element), a compositor (sequence, choice, or all), a reference to a named content model group (group), or an element wildcard (any).

See XmlSchemaAny, XmlSchemaElement, or XmlSchemaGroup for an example using this class.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
