How to validate XML against XSD schema?

XML documents are dramatically often being used as a format of data interchange. However for an XML to be appropriate to various users, the XML has to conform to a standardized structure.

XML XSD Schema is an XML-oriented representation of the structure of an XML document. XML XSD Schema has the power of possibility to provide the standard structure for XML attributes and elements, through its support for namespaces and datatypes.

You have to validate your XML file to make sure it fits to your application's needs to prevent any exception in your code.

Before validating an XML document, you must specify the location of the XML XSD Schema. By using XMLFox Advance you can validate XML document for both cases, when your XML document contains an in-line XSD schema and for an outside XSD file as well.
Take a look at two figures below. First one displays an XML with in-line XSD and the second shows two separate XML and XSD files.

By using 'Preferences' window you can setup what type of XML validation you are working with.

To run the validation, go to Script Page where your XML is open and click Validate button. The error messages will appear in the bottom part of the XMLFox Advance interface. Error will be located in XML script and its location will be highlighted.
