Content Type Bindings

Applies to: SharePoint 2016 | SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Online | SharePoint Server 2013

Each element manifest file that specifies a content type binding must adhere to the Content Type Binding Definition schema.

Content type binding enables you to provision a content type on a list defined in the onet.xml schema. Lists defined in the onet.xml schema cannot be modified directly.

Following is a list of the elements in the Content Type Binding Definition schema.
