   RE: [xml-dev] schema content model question

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


Based on your requirements, seems like you want something like this -

<Dress size="small|medium|large">Good|Bad|Ugly</Dress>

- the element can have only restricted character data and also, attributes
with only restricted enumeration values.

One way to achieve this is through the schema below -

	<xs:element name="Dress" type="MyDressType" />

	<xs:complexType name="MyDressType">
			<xs:restriction base="DressType">
				<xs:enumeration value="Good" />
				<xs:enumeration value="Bad" />
				<xs:enumeration value="Ugly" />

	<xs:complexType name="DressType">
	 		<xs:extension base="xs:token">
	 			<xs:attribute name="size" type="SizeType" />

	<xs:simpleType name="SizeType">
		<xs:restriction base="xs:token">
			<xs:enumeration value="small" />
			<xs:enumeration value="medium" />
			<xs:enumeration value="large" />

Curious to find out, whether this meets your needs.

Subject: [xml-dev] schema content model question

I have been attempting to create an XML Schema content model for an
element like the following:

- the element should contain text only, no subeleemnts (simpleContent?)
- the permissable values of the element should be restricted to a list of
enumerated string values
- the element should also have attributes with values which are also
restricted to list of enumerated string values.

Is this possible? I have made several attempts which I will send if it is
useful for discussion but I thought perhaps someone can just provide the
