Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to include the type in SOAP-encoded XML Schema documents.

Namespace:   System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public bool IncludeInSchema { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to include the type in SOAP-encoded XML Schema documents; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Apply the SoapTypeAttribute to a class declaration to specify whether to include the type in the XML schema document. To see the results of setting the properties of the SoapTypeAttribute class, compile your application as an executable or DLL, and pass the resulting file to the XML Schema Definition Tool (Xsd.exe). The tool writes the schema, including the type definition of the XML stream generated when the class is serialized.

The following example serializes a class named Group. The SoapTypeAttribute is applied to the class with the TypeName set to "SoapGroupType". The SoapTypeAttribute is also overridden, changing the TypeName to "Team". Both versions are serialized, resulting in two files: SoapType.xml and SoapType2.xml.
