Validate an XML file against an embedded XSD

Hi,

I'm trying to validate a user specified XML file against an embedded XSD.

I have the xml path as a stiring and I get the schema using the following,

Stream schema = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(schema);

but I am having trouble using the schema.  Is there any way I can convert this steam to an XmlSchema?  This would make everything a little easier for me.

Thanks.

Thought I should maybe add a little more of the code I have (which isn't much atm).


public bool ValidateXML(string xmlDocLocation)
{
      string schema = "Checker.check.xsl";            // string for schema to load
      XmlDocument xmlDoc;

      try
      {
            Stream schemaStream = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(schema);  // grab schema

      }                               
      catch (Exception e)
      {
            Console.Out.WriteLine(e.ToString());
      }

      return m_isValid;
}

I have no problems getting the schema but I just cant seem to use it!

Thanks again.

In the
             Stream schemaStream = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(schema);
is the "schema" an xml file?

If yes you may try something like - you'll get your xsd as an XmlDocument:

            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
            try
            {
                doc.Load(schemaStream );
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                //....
            }
