If true, write the schema of the current table and all its descendants. If false (the default value), write the schema for the current table only.

Use the WriteXmlSchema method to write the schema for a DataTable to an XML document. The schema includes table, relation, and constraint definitions.

The XML schema is written using the XSD standard.

To write the data to an XML document, use the WriteXml method.

Normally the WriteXmlSchema method writes the schema only for the current table. To write the schema for the current table and its entire descendant, related tables, call the method with the writeHierarchy parameter set to true.
