TypeSchema Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Represents the structure, or schema, of an object type.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.Design

public sealed class TypeSchema : IDataSourceSchema
public final class TypeSchema implements IDataSourceSchema
public final class TypeSchema implements IDataSourceSchema

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.


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