Hi,

How do you verify the xml file adheres to its schema using VB.NET?

Thanks,

Victor

You would do something like:
    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Dim settings As New XmlReaderSettings
        settings.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema

        settings.Schemas.Add(XmlSchema.Read(New XmlTextReader("C:\temp\shiporder.xsd"), AddressOf ValidationHandler))

        Dim reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create("C:\temp\shiporder.xml", settings)

        Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
        doc.Load(reader)

    End Sub

    Private Sub ValidationHandler(sender As Object, e As ValidationEventArgs)
        MessageBox.Show(e.Message)
    End Sub

Open in new window

Hi Victor;

You can also use Linq to check a XML document against a XSD file. See Microsoft documentation which also has an example at the bottom of the page. If you have any questions please ask.
