Public NotInheritable Class TypeSchema
	Implements IDataSourceSchema


Creates a new instance of the TypeSchema class using the provided Type object.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

The TypeSchema class provides information about a particular class, given an instance of that class. For example, given a DataSet object, a GridView object, or an instance of a custom class that you create, the methods and properties provide information about the class from which the object derives. It does not provide information about the specific instance, but about the class.

The TypeSchema class is used by custom control designers to assist in preparing sample data for previewing custom controls.
