Example

The following example shows a simple type definition using restriction. (The simple type is derived from nonNegativeInteger and its maxInclusive value is set to 100.)

<xs:simpleType name="freezeboilrangeInteger">
  <xs:restriction base="xs:nonNegativeInteger">
    <xs:maxInclusive value="100"/>
  </xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>

Example

The following example shows a simple type definition that derives from the integer built-in type and has all the facets of integer (no restrictions).

<xs:simpleType name="myInteger">
  <xs:restriction base="xs:integer"/>
</xs:simpleType>

Example

The following example shows a simple type definition that derives from string and is an enumerated type. The set of values is restricted to specified values.

<xs:simpleType name="mountainbikesize">
  <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
    <xs:enumeration value="small"/>
    <xs:enumeration value="medium"/>
    <xs:enumeration value="large"/>
  </xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>
