xml element enumerated attribute and enumerated value in xsd


Of interest is the following xml child element:

<optInItem type='MARKETING_EMAILS'>NO</optInItem>

I'd like to enumerate possible values (assume 2 possible values) for attribute 'type' and enumerate possible values for the text value of optInItem (values could be Yes | No). I am starting with the following xsd but am not sure how to add in the two separate enumerations.

<xs:element name="optInItem" maxOccurs="2" minOccurs="2"> <xs:complexType> <xs:simpleContent> <xs:extension base="xs:string"> <xs:attribute type="xs:string" name="type" use="required"/> </xs:extension> </xs:simpleContent> </xs:complexType> </xs:element>

Any suggestions/pointers would be appreciated.



After many iterations, it looks like the following does the trick:

<xs:element name="account"> <xs:complexType> <xs:sequence> <xs:element type="optInItemType" name="optInItem" maxOccurs="2" minOccurs="2"> </xs:sequence> </xs:complexType> </xs:element> <xs:complexType name="optInItemType"> <xs:simpleContent> <xs:extension base="elementOptInItemType"> <xs:attribute name="type" type="attrOptInItemType"/> </xs:extension> </xs:simpleContent> </xs:complexType> <xs:simpleType name="elementOptInItemType"> <xs:restriction base="xs:string"> <xs:enumeration value="YES"/> <xs:enumeration value="NO"/> </xs:restriction> </xs:simpleType> <xs:simpleType name="attrOptInItemType"> <xs:restriction base="xs:string"> <xs:enumeration value="MARKETING_EMAILS"/> <xs:enumeration value="UPDATE_NOTIFICATIONS"/> </xs:restriction> </xs:simpleType>

That was a more complicated than I thought it would be. The simpleContent extension base allowed a user defined type and thus was the key to pulling it all together.
