Hello all,

I would like to ask if anybody knows how to generate an XML instance using an XSD schema using c#? I know that Biztalk has this functionality in its schemas to "generate instance" which basically produces an xml file with values that is compliant with the schema. I'd like to recode this "generate instance" functionality from biztalk so that I can create a custom tool that creates an xml using an xsd schema. Thanks in advance.

Have a look at this: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa302296.aspx[^]

But generating an XmlDocument from an XSD will return you only one possible document.. There might be other, eg when the XSD allowes 0..n nodes. It's up to you to implement the desired behaviour for this.

Hope this helps,
Phil

Well, that was 4 years ago. Why don't you search for a solution, instead of downvoting every XML article that doesnt fit your needs?
