XmlSchemaSimpleType Class

 

Represents the simpleType element for simple content from XML Schema as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This class defines a simple type. Simple types can specify information and constraints for the value of attributes or elements with text-only content.

public class XmlSchemaSimpleType : XmlSchemaType

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSchemaSimpleType()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaSimpleType class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAnnotation

Gets or sets the annotation property.(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyBaseSchemaType

Obsolete. Gets the post-compilation object type or the built-in XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) data type, simpleType element, or complexType element. This is a post-schema-compilation infoset property.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyBaseXmlSchemaType

Gets the post-compilation value for the base type of this schema type.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyContent
System_CAPS_pubpropertyDatatype

Gets the post-compilation value for the data type of the complex type.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyDerivedBy

Gets the post-compilation information on how this element was derived from its base type.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyFinal

Gets or sets the final attribute of the type derivation that indicates if further derivations are allowed.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyFinalResolved

Gets the post-compilation value of the Final property.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyId

Gets or sets the string id.(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsMixed

Gets or sets a value indicating if this type has a mixed content model. This property is only valid in a complex type.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLineNumber

Gets or sets the line number in the file to which the schema element refers.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLinePosition

Gets or sets the line position in the file to which the schema element refers.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyName

Gets or sets the name of the type.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyNamespaces

Gets or sets the XmlSerializerNamespaces to use with this schema object.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyParent

Gets or sets the parent of this XmlSchemaObject.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyQualifiedName

Gets the qualified name for the type built from the Name attribute of this type. This is a post-schema-compilation property.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySourceUri

Gets or sets the source location for the file that loaded the schema.(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeCode

Gets the XmlTypeCode of the type.(Inherited from XmlSchemaType.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUnhandledAttributes

Gets or sets the qualified attributes that do not belong to the current schema's target namespace.(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated.)

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()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

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

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

Simple types are defined by deriving them from existing simple types (built-in data types and derived simple types). A simple type cannot contain elements and cannot have attributes.

The following example shows the use of the XmlSchemaSimpleType class.

using System.Xml.Schema;

class XMLSchemaExamples
{
    public static void Main()
    {

        XmlSchema schema = new XmlSchema();

        // <xs:simpleType name="LotteryNumber">
        XmlSchemaSimpleType LotteryNumberType = new XmlSchemaSimpleType();
        LotteryNumberType.Name = "LotteryNumber";

        // <xs:restriction base="xs:int">
        XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction LotteryNumberRestriction = new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction();
        LotteryNumberRestriction.BaseTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("int", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");

        // <xs:minInclusive value="1"/>
        XmlSchemaMinInclusiveFacet minInclusive = new XmlSchemaMinInclusiveFacet();
        minInclusive.Value = "1";
        LotteryNumberRestriction.Facets.Add(minInclusive);

        // <xs:maxInclusive value="99"/>
        XmlSchemaMaxInclusiveFacet maxInclusive = new XmlSchemaMaxInclusiveFacet();
        maxInclusive.Value = "99";

        LotteryNumberType.Content = LotteryNumberRestriction;
        schema.Items.Add(LotteryNumberType);

        XmlSchemaSimpleTypeList list = new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeList();
        list.ItemTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("LotteryNumber", "");
        LotteryNumberListType.Content = list;

        schema.Items.Add(LotteryNumberListType);

        // <xs:simpleType name="LotteryNumbers">
        XmlSchemaSimpleType LotteryNumbersType = new XmlSchemaSimpleType();
        LotteryNumbersType.Name = "LotteryNumbers";

        // <xs:restriction base="LotteryNumberList">
        XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction LotteryNumbersRestriction = new XmlSchemaSimpleTypeRestriction();
        LotteryNumbersRestriction.BaseTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("LotteryNumberList", "");

        // <xs:length value="5"/>
        XmlSchemaLengthFacet length = new XmlSchemaLengthFacet();
        length.Value = "5";
        LotteryNumbersRestriction.Facets.Add(length);

        LotteryNumbersType.Content = LotteryNumbersRestriction;

        schema.Items.Add(LotteryNumbersType);

        // <xs:element name="TodaysLottery" type="LotteryNumbers">
        XmlSchemaElement TodaysLottery = new XmlSchemaElement();
        TodaysLottery.Name = "TodaysLottery";
        TodaysLottery.SchemaTypeName = new XmlQualifiedName("LotteryNumbers", "");

        schema.Items.Add(TodaysLottery);

        XmlSchemaSet schemaSet = new XmlSchemaSet();
        schemaSet.ValidationEventHandler += new ValidationEventHandler(ValidationCallbackOne);
        schemaSet.Add(schema);
        schemaSet.Compile();

        XmlSchema compiledSchema = null;

        foreach (XmlSchema schema1 in schemaSet.Schemas())
        {
            compiledSchema = schema1;
        }

        XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(new NameTable());
        nsmgr.AddNamespace("xs", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
        compiledSchema.Write(Console.Out, nsmgr);
    }

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

        Console.WriteLine(args.Message);
    }
}

The following XML file is generated for the preceding code example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="IBM437"?>
<xs:schema  xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <xs:simpleType name="LotteryNumber">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:int">

            <xs:maxInclusive value="99"/>
        </xs:restriction>
    </xs:simpleType>

    <xs:simpleType name="LotteryNumberList">
