Remarks

An annotation element can contain one or more XmlSchemaAppInfo instances (information for applications) and XmlSchemaDocumentation instances (comments or text for humans).

An annotation is used to store extra information about the schema or its elements. These notes are specified for human consumption, xs:documentation, or by software, xs:appinfo. Annotation can be the first element of most schema elements or anywhere under the schema element.

Constructors

XmlSchemaAnnotation()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaAnnotation class.

Properties

Id

Gets or sets the string id.

Items

Gets the Items collection that is used to store the appinfo and documentation child elements.

LineNumber

Gets or sets the line number in the file to which the schema element refers.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject)
LinePosition

Gets or sets the line position in the file to which the schema element refers.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject)
Namespaces

Gets or sets the XmlSerializerNamespaces to use with this schema object.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject)
