Initializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaObject class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyLineNumber

System_CAPS_pubpropertySourceUri

Gets or sets the source location for the file that loaded the schema.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

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

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

        foreach (PropertyInfo property in o.GetType().GetProperties())

            {

                XmlSchemaObjectCollection childObjectCollection = (XmlSchemaObjectCollection)property.GetValue(o, null);

                foreach (XmlSchemaObject schemaObject in childObjectCollection)
                {
                    DisplayObjects(schemaObject, indent + "\t");
                }
            }

    }
    private static void ShowCompileError(object sender, ValidationEventArgs e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Validation Error: {0}", e.Message);
    }
}

The example uses the example.xsd file as input.
