XmlSchemaNotation Class

Class represents a notation. An XML Schema definition language (XSD) notation declaration is a reconstruction of XML 1.0 NOTATION declarations. The purpose of notations is to describe the format of non-XML data within an XML document. Represents the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) notation element.

For a list of all members of this type, see XmlSchemaNotation Members.

Thread Safety

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


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example shows the use of the XmlSchemaNotation class.

[Visual Basic] 
Imports System
Imports System.Xml
Imports System.Xml.Schema

class XMLSchemaExamples 
    Public Shared Sub Main() 
        Dim schema As XmlSchema = new XmlSchema()
        ' <xs:notation name="jpeg" public="image/jpeg" system="viewer.exe" />
        Dim notation As XmlSchemaNotation = new XmlSchemaNotation()
        notation.Name = "jpeg"
        notation.Public = "image/jpeg"
        notation.System = "viewer.exe"

    schema.Compile(AddressOf ValidationCallbackOne)
    Dim nsmgr As New XmlNamespaceManager(New NameTable())
    nsmgr.AddNamespace("xs", "")
    schema.Write(Console.Out, nsmgr)
     End Sub
    Public Shared Sub ValidationCallbackOne(sender As Object, args As ValidationEventArgs)
    End Sub 'ValidationCallbackOne
End Class 'XMLSchemaExamples

using System;
using System.Xml;  
using System.Xml.Schema;

class XMLSchemaExamples {
    public static void Main() {
        XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();
        // <xs:notation name="jpeg" public="image/jpeg" system="viewer.exe" />
        XmlSchemaNotation notation = new XmlSchemaNotation();
        notation.Name = "jpeg";
        notation.Public = "image/jpeg";
        notation.System = "viewer.exe";

        schema.Compile(new ValidationEventHandler(ValidationCallbackOne));
     XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(new NameTable());
        nsmgr.AddNamespace("xs", "");
        schema.Write(Console.Out, nsmgr);

    public static void ValidationCallbackOne(object sender, ValidationEventArgs args) {

#using <mscorlib.dll>
#using <System.Xml.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::Xml;  
using namespace System::Xml::Schema;

__gc class XMLSchemaExamples 
   static void ValidationCallbackOne(Object* sender, ValidationEventArgs * args) 
      Console::WriteLine(args -> Message);

int main() 

   XmlSchema* schema = new XmlSchema();

   // <xs:notation name=S"jpeg" public=S"image/jpeg" system=S"viewer.exe" />
   XmlSchemaNotation* notation = new XmlSchemaNotation();
   notation -> Name = S"jpeg";
   notation -> Public = S"image/jpeg";
   notation -> System = S"viewer.exe";

   schema -> Items->Add(notation);

   schema -> Compile(new ValidationEventHandler(schema, XMLSchemaExamples::ValidationCallbackOne));
   XmlNamespaceManager* nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(new NameTable());
   nsmgr -> AddNamespace(S"xs", S"");
   schema -> Write(Console::Out, nsmgr);

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following XML file is generated for the preceding code example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="IBM437"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="">
    <xs:notation name="jpeg" public="image/jpeg" system="viewer.exe" />
