Validating an XML File
Before using XSD schemas, you need to import the namespace System.Xml.Schema
namespace, which contains types like XmlSchema and XmlSchemaCollection.

Imports System.Xml.Schema
The code snippet that follows shows how you can create an XmlValidatingReader
that uses the SuperProProductList.xsd file, and use it to verify that the XML in Super-
ProProductList.xml is valid.

‘ Open the XML file.
Dim fs As New FileStream(Request.ApplicationPath & _
“\SuperProProductList.xml”, FileMode.Open)
Dim r As New XmlTextReader(fs)
‘ Create the validating reader.
Dim vr As New XmlValidatingReader(r)
vr.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema
‘ Add the XSD file to the validator.
Dim Schemas As New XmlSchemaCollection()
Schemas.Add(“SuperProProductList”, _
Request.ApplicationPath & “\SuperProProductList.xsd”)
‘ Read through the document.
Do While vr.Read()
‘ Process document here.
‘ If an error is found, an exception will be thrown.
