Remarks

An element can be declared with a type attribute that refers to a complexType element that defines the structure, content, and attributes of that element.

Constructors

XmlSchemaComplexType()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSchemaComplexType class.

Properties

Annotation

Gets or sets the annotation property.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated)
AnyAttribute

Gets or sets the value for the XmlSchemaAnyAttribute component of the complex type.

Attributes

Gets the collection of attributes for the complex type.

AttributeUses

Gets the collection of all the complied attributes of this complex type and its base types.

AttributeWildcard

Gets the post-compilation value for anyAttribute for this complex type and its base type(s).

BaseSchemaType

Gets the post-compilation object type or the built-in XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) data type, simpleType element, or complexType element. This is a post-schema-compilation infoset property.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
BaseXmlSchemaType

Gets the post-compilation value for the base type of this schema type.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
Block

Gets or sets the block attribute.

BlockResolved

Gets the value after the type has been compiled to the post-schema-validation information set (infoset). This value indicates how the type is enforced when xsi:type is used in the instance document.

ContentModel

Gets or sets the post-compilation XmlSchemaContentModel of this complex type.

ContentType

Gets the content model of the complex type which holds the post-compilation value.

ContentTypeParticle

Gets the particle that holds the post-compilation value of the ContentType particle.

Datatype

Gets the post-compilation value for the data type of the complex type.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
DerivedBy

Gets the post-compilation information on how this element was derived from its base type.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
Final

Gets or sets the final attribute of the type derivation that indicates if further derivations are allowed.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
FinalResolved

Gets the post-compilation value of the Final property.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
Id

Gets or sets the string id.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaAnnotated)
IsAbstract

Gets or sets the information that determines if the complexType element can be used in the instance document.

IsMixed

Gets or sets information that determines if the complex type has a mixed content model (markup within the content).

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)
Name

Gets or sets the name of the type.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
Namespaces

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

(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject)
Parent

Gets or sets the parent of this XmlSchemaObject.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject)
Particle

Gets or sets the compositor type as one of the XmlSchemaGroupRef, XmlSchemaChoice, XmlSchemaAll, or XmlSchemaSequence classes.

QualifiedName

Gets the qualified name for the type built from the Name attribute of this type. This is a post-schema-compilation property.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
SourceUri

Gets or sets the source location for the file that loaded the schema.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaObject)
TypeCode

Gets the XmlTypeCode of the type.

(Inherited from XmlSchemaType)
UnhandledAttributes

Gets or sets the qualified attributes that do not belong to the current schema's target namespace.

Methods

Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
GetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function.

(Inherited from Object)
GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.
