Validating xml visual studio

Examples use: Here are some simple element definitions: We can see that some of these elements should really be represented as child elements, "Customer_dob" and "Customer_address" should belong to a parent element – "Customer".

If we have set the type property for an element in the XSD, then the corresponding value in the XML document must be in the correct format for its given type otherwise this will cause a validation error when a validating parser attempts to parse the data from the XML document.

Examples of simple elements and their XML data are shown below: The previous XSD definitions are shown graphically in Liquid Studio as follows: The valid data values for the element in the XML document can be further constrained using the fixed and default properties.

Tip: To add a Simple Type in the Liquid Studio graphical XSD view, select menu item Edit- A xs:complex Type provides the definition for an XML Element, it's specifies which element and attributes are permitted and the rules regarding where they can appear and how many times.

They can be used inplace within an element definition or named and defined globally (but more about this later).

The XML data constraints are called facets and include rules such as min and max length.

This tutorial guides you through the basics of the XSD standard and the examples use the graphical XML Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Liquid Studio.

Elements of these simple data types are said to have a 'simple content model', whereas elements that can contain other elements are said to have a 'complex content model' and elements that can contain both have a 'mixed content model'.

You can also create user defined types using the constructs, which we will cover later.

The easy to use Wizard driven interface also generates HTML documentation for your custom API along with a Sample Application.
