XSD Validation and Error List

This section provides a tutorial example on how to perform XSD validation and view error list in XML Notepad 2007.

XML Notepad 2007 can also be used to perform XSD (XML Schema Definition) validations.

1. Open the following XML document in XML Notepad 2007.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<dictionary xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
 xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="dictionary.xsd">
<!-- dictionary_invalid_xsd.xml
 - Copyright (c) 2013, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
-->
 <word acronym="yes">
  <name>XML</name>
  <definition reference="Herong's Notes">eXtensible Markup 
Language.</definition>
  <update date="23-Dec-2003"/>
 </word>
 <word symbol="true">
  <name><</name>
  <definition>Mathematical symbol representing the "less than" logical 
operation, like: 1<2.</definition>
  <definition>Reserved symbol in XML representing the beginning of 
tags, like: <![CDATA[<p>Hello world!</p>]]>
  </definition>
  <update editor="Herong Yang"/>
 </word>
 <word symbol="no" acronym="false">
  <name>extensible</name>
  <definition>Capable of being extended.</definition>
 </word>
</dictionary>

2. Look at the "Error List" area near the bottom. You see 4 errors generated from the automatic XSD validation, since the XSD file, dictionary.xsd, is provided in the XML document.

3. Click on the second error. XML Notepad 2007 automatically opens the attribute where this error is generated.

If the XSD file is not provided in the XML document, you can specify it through menu "View" > "Schemas...".
