Reprocesses an XML Schema definition language (XSD) schema that already exists in the XmlSchemaSet.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
- Type: System.Xml.Schema.XmlSchema
The schema to reprocess.
You need to call the method if you have changed a schema (or one of its includes/imports) after adding it to the XmlSchemaSet. The method will check the schema for structural validity according to the rules of W3C XML Schema. However, it will not perform a full validation check. It will also resolve references to internal and external schema components. Any imported or included schemas that are successfully retrieved are also added to the XmlSchemaSet. Imported schemas are added as separate XmlSchema objects while included schemas are made part of the including XmlSchema. If the call to reprocess is successful, the IsCompiled property is set to false.
The following example illustrates reprocessing a schema added to the XmlSchemaSet. After the XmlSchemaSet is compiled using the Compile method, and the schema added to the XmlSchemaSet is modified, the IsCompiled property will be set to true, even though a schema in the XmlSchemaSet has been modified. Calling the method performs all the preprocessing performed by the Add method and sets the IsCompiled property to false.
XmlSchemaSet schemaSet = new XmlSchemaSet(); XmlSchema schema = schemaSet.Add("http://www.contoso.com/books", "http://www.contoso.com/books.xsd"); schemaSet.Compile(); XmlSchemaElement element = new XmlSchemaElement(); schema.Items.Add(element); element.Name = "book"; element.SchemaTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("string", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"); schemaSet.Reprocess(schema);
