A validating Xml Reader object is created by passing an Xml Reader Settings object to the Create method of the Xml Reader class that takes an Xml Reader Settings object as a parameter. XPath Class Validating Reader Example Shared Sub Main(By Val args() As String) Try Dim settings As Xml Reader Settings = New Xml Reader Settings() settings. The Xml Reader Settings object passed as a parameter has a Validation Type property set to and an XML Schema for the XML document contained in the Xml Document object added to its Schemas property. You can also perform read-only validation of XML content using the XPath Document class. The Validity property can be used to determine whether or not an individual attribute or element is valid when accessing attributes or elements with the XPath Navigator. The XML document is validated successfully as it is loaded without generating any schema validation errors or warnings. The Xml Document class does not validate an XML document using either DTD or XML schema definition language (XSD) schema validation by default. Note When an XML document is loaded into an Xml Document object with an associated schema that defines default values, the Xml Document object treats these defaults as if they appeared in the XML document. The example then makes two modifications to the XML document that are invalid according to the schema. As an example, if we have the following xsd saved in a file Instead of navigating to the xsd file the location can be specified in the xml document.
One feature of the plugin is the ability to validate XML against an XSD.
It also specifies that the elements and data types that come from the " namespace should be prefixed with xs: This fragment: specifies the default namespace declaration.
This declaration tells the schema-validator that all the elements used in this XML document are declared in the "https:// namespace.
The validating Xml Reader object is then used to create the Xml Document object.
The following example validates the file as it is loaded into the Xml Document object by creating the Xml Document object using a validating Xml Reader object.
