MS SQL Server database schema retrieval

I would like to retrieve the database schema and determine the following:

  * User Tables
  * Keys (primary keys, composite keys, no keys)
  * Relationships (all types)
  * Null possible

I am really desperate to retrieve this information and will award maximum points for solution.

Can someone please provide an example of how to retrieve the schema and the above information.

Cheers.

SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection("PutYourConnectionStringOverHere");
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM Information_Schema.Tables where Table_Type = 'BASE TABLE'", cn");
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
da.Fill(dt);
