XML Schema

Set base type in Design View

    It is now possible to set the base type of simple and complex type declarations in the XML Schema editor design view:

    Set Base Type context menu
    The new context menu item "Set Base Type" brings up a dialog box with the available type declarations that are suitable for the selection:

    Set Type dialog box

    When the selection consists of a complex type declaration, setting the base to a simple type will generate in the source view simple content and extension elements:

    Simple content

    If the base is instead set to a complex type, complexContext and extension elements are generated in the source view:

    Complex content

    Finally, if the selection is a simple type declaration, a restriction element in the source view is generated:

    Simple Type

    At all times the properties view is updated to reflect the changes performed in the document:
