SchemaImporterExtension::ImportSchemaType Method (String^, String^, XmlSchemaObject^, XmlSchemas^, XmlSchemaImporter^, CodeCompileUnit^, CodeNamespace^, CodeGenerationOptions, CodeDomProvider^)


Allows you to manipulate the code generated by examining the imported schema and specifying the CLR type that it maps to.

Namespace:   System.Xml.Serialization.Advanced
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

virtual String^ ImportSchemaType(
	String^ name,
	String^ ns,
	XmlSchemaObject^ context,
	XmlSchemas^ schemas,
	XmlSchemaImporter^ importer,
	CodeCompileUnit^ compileUnit,
	CodeNamespace^ mainNamespace,
	CodeGenerationOptions options,
	CodeDomProvider^ codeProvider


Type: System::String^

The name of the element.

Type: System::String^

The namespace of the element.

Type: System.Xml.Schema::XmlSchemaObject^

An XmlSchemaObject that represents schema information, such as the line number of the XML element.

Type: System.Xml.Serialization::XmlSchemas^

An XmlSchemas that contains the collection of schemas in the document.

Type: System.Xml.Serialization::XmlSchemaImporter^

The XmlSchemaImporter that is the importer being used.

Type: System.CodeDom::CodeCompileUnit^

A CodeCompileUnit to which you can add CodeDOM structures to generate alternative code for the XSD.

Type: System.CodeDom::CodeNamespace^

A CodeNamespace that represents the current namespace for the element.

Type: System.Xml.Serialization::CodeGenerationOptions

A CodeGenerationOptions for the setting options on the code compiler.

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler::CodeDomProvider^

A CodeDomProvider that is used to generate the new code.

Return Value

Type: System::String^

The name of the CLR type that this maps to.

In order to control the generation of the code, you must use the classes found in the System.CodeDom namespace. For more information, see Using the CodeDOM and CodeDOM Quick Reference.

The example below shows a simple implementation of the ImportSchemaType(String^, String^, XmlSchemaObject^, XmlSchemas^, XmlSchemaImporter^, CodeCompileUnit^, CodeNamespace^, CodeGenerationOptions, CodeDomProvider^) method. The code checks the namespace and name. When the right values are found, it adds the name of a custom assembly ("Order.dll") that must be referenced in the generated code. It then adds a new namespace ("Microsoft.Samples") that is generated in the code.
