The Visual Basic Code Editor includes IntelliSense features for XML that provide word completion for elements that are defined in an XML schema.

This video shows you how to include an XML Schema Definition (XSD) file in your project and import the target namespace of the schema so that Visual Basic IntelliSense displays members from the schema. The following tasks are included in the process:

  • How to include the XML schema files in your project.

  • How to import the target namespace or namespaces into your code file or project.

The Visual Basic Help includes the code and the steps that are demonstrated in this video. See How to: Enable XML IntelliSense in Visual Basic.
