WriteXMLForReport

Many times you need an XSD file for a report. I have created this extension to write the xsd based on the data table I feed it into the directory I set.

Source

/// <summary>
/// Writes xsd for report into specified directory
/// </summary>
/// <param name="tblIn">DataTable with XML Schema that you want to write</param>
/// <param name="outputName">Name of xsd you want back.</param>
public static void WriteXMLForReport(this DataTable tblIn, string outputName)
{
    //Set table name in case it is not set
    tblIn.TableName = outputName;
    string fileName = @"C:\OutDir\" + outputName + ".xsd";
    tblIn.WriteXmlSchema(fileName, true);
}

Example

tblAnyTable.WriteXMLForReport("AnyTableOut");
