How do I define minOccurs/maxOccurs on extended element ?

Post by ijabz » Wed Dec 19, 2007 11:48 am

Hi I have three elements (metacolumndisplay,columndisplay and mpegcolumndisplay), each can just contain multiple occurences of another element called callorder, the difference between the elements is the number of callorder elements they must contain. I have extended an element called columnordering , but I couldnt see how to declare that the element must comtain multiple colorders, but specify the minOccurs/maxOccurs in the subclasses

Code: Select all


 <xs:complexType name="columnordering">	    
</xs:complexType>
<xs:element name="metacolumndisplay">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:complexContent>
<xs:extension base="columnordering">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element ref="colorder" minOccurs="37" maxOccurs="37"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:extension>
</xs:complexContent>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
<xs:element name="columndisplay">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:complexContent>
<xs:extension base="columnordering">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element ref="colorder" minOccurs="94" maxOccurs="94"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:extension>
</xs:complexContent>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
<xs:element name="mpegcolumndisplay">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:complexContent>
<xs:extension base="columnordering">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element ref="colorder" minOccurs="15" maxOccurs="15"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:extension>
</xs:complexContent>
</xs:complexType>
<xs:element name="colorder">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:attribute name="enabled" use="required" type="xs:boolean"/>
<xs:attribute name="order" use="required" type="xs:integer"/>
<xs:attribute name="value" use="required" type="xs:boolean"/>
<xs:attribute name="width" use="required" type="xs:integer"/>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
