Before working with any XML or set of XML files we have to validate the XML document first to avoid unhandled exception like corrupted file, incomplete file or even partial file. The XML file provider must provide you an XSD file according to their XML elements. Load(Oreader) Dim event Handler As Validation Event Handler = New Validation Event Handler(Address Of Validation Event Handler) Odoc.
If they don’t provide then you can also create a XSD file using Visual Studio IDE. Dim s B As String Builder = New String Builder() Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As System. Load If Not Is Post Back Then Dim xml Path As String = Map Path("XMLFile.xml") Dim xsd Path As String = Map Path("XMLFile.xsd") Dim settings As Xml Reader Settings = New Xml Reader Settings() settings.
Find the XML file and click Validate XML Against Schema.
The ACA schema validator will find errors with a line number and position. A typical error would look like the following: ERROR in Line: 10, Position: 32 "The 'Employer EIN' element is invalid - The value ' 123456789' is invalid according to its datatype 'EINType' - The Pattern constraint failed." For this example, the error is in line 10, position 32. Double click on the XML file and it should open in notepad.
This method hold 2 arguments, one is the XML file path & another one is the Xml Reader Settings object which contains the XML schema definition language (XSD) schema.
To complete this example first create the below XML file: To create an XML file right click on project from solution explorer.
