public ICollection<CodeTypeReference> GetKnownTypeReferences(
	XmlQualifiedName typeName


Type: System.Xml.XmlQualifiedName

An XmlQualifiedName that represents the schema type to look up known types for.

When generating CLR types for schema types, known types are also generated for all derived types that are present in the schema. In many cases, these known types are added using attributes to the generated code. (For example, see the KnownTypeAttribute class. ) However, for the top-level type, there needs to be a way to return the set of known types generated. This method returns the CodeTypeReference for known types that were generated for a specific schema type.
