Specifies that a content type should be included in code generation and modifies which columns in the content type are included in code generation.
The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.
The name of the content type in SharePoint Foundation.
The name SPMetal should give to the property that it generates to represent the list.
Specifies whether the class is public or internal.
AccessModifier Attribute Possible Values:
The class will be internal (Friend in Visual Basic).
DEFAULT: The class will be public (Public in Visual Basic).
Includes a column (field) in code generation.
Excludes a column in code generation.
Excludes from code generation all columns not explicitly included with a Column element.
Includes hidden columns in code generation.
A ContentType element cannot have both a Column element and an ExcludeColumn element that name the same column. An ExcludeColumn element that names a hidden column may not be present in the same ContentType element that has an IncludeHiddenColumns element. Finally, a ContentType element cannot have both an ExcludeOtherColumns element and an IncludeHiddenColumns element.
The following is an example of a ContentType element in use. If this was a hidden content type, the presence of the element would ensure that it was included in code generation. The Class attribute in the element ensures that the class is named "Contract" instead of the default name "ContractsItem". A list-scoped ContentType element ensures that the class that represents the content type of the list is named "TeamMember" instead of "TeamMembersItem".
