Here a list of available document types : Note : Blue color is usually for user XML documents, Green color is for transformation documents (like XSLT), Red color is for validation (like DTD), Yellow color is for visual documents (like SVG).The document's icon is shown in the tab list of opened documents and when opening a recent document from the "File" menu.This is definitely more clear, but I'm just curious about performance, especially with large XML documents - why load the XML if you don't need it? But I'm betting that poster needs to know more about the contents of that file than whether there is any data beyond the processing instructions (e.g. Xml Reader will keep a flatter memory model in this situation and give benefits of easily determining if valid xml.Hello everyone I want to check my xml file if it is empty or not.The complex Content element signals that we intend to restrict or extend the content model of a complex type, and the restriction of integer declares one attribute but does not introduce any element content.I've just started learning how to load XML files and use them to create objects a bit yesterday and so I've run into a few little things that I haven't, through about 15 minutes or so of looking around, been able to figure out so I decided to try asking them here.You should never trust input and the only way to reliably verify it is XML is to treat it like XML and see what . EDIT: Based on feedback comments For large XML documents see Thomas's answer. But, if it is a valid xml and the program wants to process it then this approach seems better.I thought about this, but what is the overhead difference between loading the XML and doing what I suggested?
Keep in mind that the property Child Nodes returns only the children on the specific level of the XML DOM.
It validates the structure and data of XML and let's you know if the XML is as expected or it's different than what's defined in Schema. Refer this [click_here] What you are looking for is XSLT.
XSLT is meant for transforming an XML to XML (or HTML/Text) with customized hierarchy and data.
Then I decided to reformat my xml code letting Visual Studio to decide on the layout! This formatted the xml file as shown below: The solution: Although the auto-format didn't do much other than compress 6 lines of code into 3 inside the failing xml element, the problem went away so there must have been some hidden character somewhere on this page causing the exception.
To define a type with no content, we must define a type that allows elements in its content, but we do not actually declare any elements, like this: In the example above, we define a complex type with a complex content.
