I'm trying to create an XSD for my XML structure, but I'm not sure this is right, I need a little help in the right direction.

My XSD is
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
	<xs:element name="ContactDetails" type="Contact"/>

	<xs:complexType name="Contact">
	  <xs:sequence>
		<xs:element name="Surname" type="xs:string"/>
		<xs:element name="Firstname" type="xs:string"/>
		<xs:sequence>
			<xs:element name="Addresses" type="Address"/>
		</xs:sequence>
	  </xs:sequence>
	</xs:complexType>

	<xs:complexType name="Address">
	  <xs:sequence>
		  <xs:element name="Line1" type="xs:string"/>
		  <xs:element name="Line2" type="xs:string"/>
	  </xs:sequence>
	</xs:complexType>
	
</xs:schema>

Open in new window


Which when I 'generate xml sample' produces me this in VS2010

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ContactDetails>
  <Surname>Surname1</Surname>
  <Firstname>Firstname1</Firstname>
  <Addresses>
    <Line1>Line11</Line1>
    <Line2>Line21</Line2>
  </Addresses>
</ContactDetails>

Open in new window


But what I'm after is actually this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ContactDetails>
  <Surname>Surname1</Surname>
  <Firstname>Firstname1</Firstname>
  <Addresses>
    <Address>
       <Line1>Line11</Line1>
       <Line2>Line21</Line2>
    </Address>
    <Address>
       <Line1>Line12</Line1>
       <Line2>Line22</Line2>
    </Address>
  </Addresses>
</ContactDetails>

Open in new window


What am I doing wrong in my XSD?

Thanks! ^_^

You forgot one layer
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <xs:element name="ContactDetails" type="Contact"/>
    
    <xs:complexType name="Contact">
        <xs:sequence>
            <xs:element name="Surname" type="xs:string"/>
            <xs:element name="Firstname" type="xs:string"/>
            <xs:sequence>
                <xs:element name="Addresses" >
                    <xs:complexType>
                        <xs:sequence maxOccurs="unbounded">
                            <xs:element name="Address" type="Address"/>
                        </xs:sequence>
                    </xs:complexType>
                </xs:element>
            </xs:sequence>
        </xs:sequence>
    </xs:complexType>
    
    <xs:complexType name="Address">
        <xs:sequence>
            <xs:element name="Line1" type="xs:string"/>
            <xs:element name="Line2" type="xs:string"/>
        </xs:sequence>
    </xs:complexType>
    
</xs:schema>
