ExportOptions ExportOptions ExportOptions ExportOptions Class

Definition

Represents the options that can be set for an XsdDataContractExporter.

Examples

The following example creates an instance of the ExportOptions class and adds a type (Possessions) to the collection returned by the KnownTypes property.

The XsdDataContractExporter then exports the schemas of the types, including the Possessions type added to the collection.

Remarks

The XsdDataContractExporter is used to generate XSD schemas from a type or assembly. You can also use the XsdDataContractImporter to generate .NET Framework code from a schema document.

For more information about importing and exporting schemas, see Schema Import and Export and Exporting Schemas from Classes.

The KnownTypes property is used by the DataContractSerializer to include types that can be read in an object graph. For more information about the data contract and known types, see Data Contract Known Types.

For more information about data contracts, see Using Data Contracts.
