Hi,

Can anyone help me solve this problem

I want to define an element to type integer
so we can do something like this ...

<xs:simpleType name="status">
<xs:annotation>
<xs ocumentation>0=CLOSED</xs ocumentation>
<xs ocumentation>1=OPEN</xs ocumentation>
</xs:annotation>
<xs:restriction base="xs:integer">
<xs:enumeration value="0"/>
<xs:enumeration value="1"/>
</xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>
But the problem is this will not validate an xml
<status></status>

Can anyone pl. tell me what I can use in XSD so that this gets validated
Note: I cant add any thing in xml as its getting generated automatically

Thanks in advance
Bipul

I'm closing this thread. Please continue the discussion over there.

Thank you.
