xsd:extension not inherit attributes?

Does anyone know why if I create a complexType based off another complexType
using xsd:extension the attributes don't seem to be inherited? Is this a
bug/non-implementation in the .NET Schema editor and the XML validator?

Thanks,
Mike Jansen

Attributes are always inherited from the base type. Can you provide your
schema?

Hi Stan,

Thanks for the quick response. My schema is below. I've got a complexType
(table-version-action-add-ct) deriving by extension from another complexType
(column-ct). Then I use table-version-action-add-ct as element
"action-add". In the XML editor, the Intellisense doesn't pickup the
attributes when I add an "action-add" element and if I put in the "name"
attribute, it marks it as invalid. See the XML sample that follows.

(Side note: I'm trying to come up with the best way to do inheritance in XML
using VS.NET. I seem to be running into walls. Could you point me to any
good resources on the best way to do this? I'd like to be able to have
abstract types and use polymorphism using xsi:type or some other method.
Substitution?)

Thanks,
Mike Jansen

Your xml is missing required attributes (type and description) for
action-add element. XML editor intellisense is working for me. The error
you get on action-add element is that it's missing required attributes.
Other than that both, your schema and your instance doc, are valid.

Hi Mike,

I was using XML Editor in VS2005 beta. It is possible that VS2003 has a
problem with this.

I tried it again and I'm still getting the same problems. I realize I was
missing the required attributes in the XML file; I just put that together
more for you to easily work with and see. I'm still not getting
intellisense on the attributes for action-add. Is there is aVS.NET
service
pack I could be missing? My help/about says "Microsoft Development
Environment 2003 Version 7.1.3088". I've got MSXML 4.0 installed. (BTW,
I've also got BizTalk 2004 installed.)

I even tried this: took the schema and xml I posted to you (directly from
the newsgroup message), pasted into two brand new files in a brand new
.NET
C# project. I did the usual, close files, open files to get the
Intellisense to recognize the schema. I deleted the <action-add> element
and then using intellisense (just typing "<" from within the <version>
element), I added the <action-add> but when I type space after
"<action-add"
I don't get the attribute list. Furthermore, I'm still getting the
message
"Could not find any attribute 'name' of element 'action-add'." I've
attached a screen shot.

Thanks for your help,
Mike
