I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for my question, forgive me if
it is not and feel free to point me in the correct direction for it.
What I would like to do is create a new simpleType that is identical to
a built-in type, without any restrictions. Consider an example from C
typedef uint16_t my_element_type;
What's the point? Well doing this allows me to use the "my_element_type"
everywhere and if it's size ever changes from say the 16 bits defined to
say 32 bits, I can just replace the line above with:
typedef uint32_t my_element_type
and the update becomes automatic throughout.
I thought something like this would have been perfect but is iilegal:
<xsd:simpleType name="my_element_type" base="xsd:unsignedShort"/>
then I tried this:
but it too is illegal.
Is there an elegant way to do this? Thanks in advance!
