Today we had to generate an XSD file from an XML file.
Of course you can use the XML Schema Definition tool (XSD.exe) or something 3rd party (XMLSpy: Best XML editor ever made IMHO) for this.
But there is also an easy way to do this via Visual Studio.
When you open an XML file in Visual Studio a new menu item (XML) will appear.
From this menu you can do the following:
- Create schema
- Show XSLT Output
- Debug XSLT
- View available Schemas
Feel a little stupid that I didn’t notice this earlier. Apparently this is something that
has been there for a while.
But anyway, it’s a nice feature.
