Member name Description
Error Indicates a validation error occurred when validating the instance document. This applies to document type definitions (DTDs) and XML-Data Reduced (XDR) and XML Schema definition language (XSD) schemas. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) validity constraints are considered errors. If no validation event handler has been created, errors throw an exception.
Warning Warnings indicate that a validation event occurred that is not an error but may be important enough to warn the user about. A warning is typically issued when there is no DTD, XML-Data Reduced (XDR) or XML Schema (XSD) to validate a particular element or attribute against. The XmlValidatingReader.ValidationType setting determines the type of the schema used. Unlike errors, warnings do not throw an exception if there is no validation event handler.
