Default Mandatory date values

Hi All,

I am defining an XSD for my XML file which contains an elemnet of date type. The definition of the element in the XSD is provided as follows:

<xsd:element name="createDate" type="xsd:date">

Is there any through which i can ensure that while creating the XML, the user mandatorily enters the value for the above tag?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks and regards,

Rajat Aggarwal

Thanks and Regards,

Rajat Aggarwal

You can set the minOccurs='1' and maxOccurs='1'. These are the defaults however so if not defined the date will be mandatory.

Well, this was not what i wanted.
my problem is that when the user defines the XML,

the content should be like
<createDate>2008-11-11</createDate>

and not <createDate />

the point is, that the value contained in the tag should not be empty.

Please help

Thanks and regards,

Rajat Aggarwal

If the type is defined as xsd:date, then an empty element will be rejected by the validator. You don't need to do any more.
