[XmlFormatExtensionPointAttribute("Extensions")]
public sealed class Types : DocumentableItem

This class is a container for data type definitions for the XML Web service. Note especially that this class does not represent a collection of instances of the Type class, as its name might imply. Instead, it corresponds to the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) <types> element enclosed by the <definitions> root element. For more information about WSDL, see the specification at http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl/.

The Types class has two read-only properties, Schemas and Extensions, representing the collections of data type definitions available to an XML Web service.

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