XmlSchemaType.GetBuiltInSimpleType Method (XmlTypeCode)

Returns an XmlSchemaSimpleType that represents the built-in simple type of the specified simple type.

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

public static XmlSchemaSimpleType GetBuiltInSimpleType(
	XmlTypeCode typeCode


Type: System.Xml.Schema.XmlTypeCode

One of the XmlTypeCode values representing the simple type.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Schema.XmlSchemaSimpleType
The XmlSchemaSimpleType that represents the built-in simple type.

You cannot directly serialize the built-in type. If you need to serialize the type, create a new simple type which derives from the built-in type and serialize the simple type.

The following example shows how to create the type and add it to the schema.

using System;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Schema;

namespace GetBuiltInSimpleType
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();
            XmlSchemaSimpleType stringType = new XmlSchemaSimpleType();
            stringType.Name = "myString";
            XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction stringRestriction = 
                                 new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction();
            stringRestriction.BaseTypeName = 
                                 new XmlQualifiedName("string",
            stringType.Content = stringRestriction;
