conditional validation

Recommended Posts

Hi,Does anybody know of an easy way in a XSD to have a validation based on an attribute from the parent node ?My XML: .... <product no="218"> <part type="é" /> </product> <product no="205"> <participant>N</participant> <part type="é"> <nb>1</nb> </part> </product>...In the XSD:...<xs:element name="participant" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1">...<xs:element name="part" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="12">The tag participant can only occur if the product no is 205, and the maxOccurs of product no 218 is 12 where is really is 10 for product no 205.How can I do this ? I really need both to be under the "product tag", so I cannot change its name.Thank's for help !

The only way I can think of would be for an XSLT that would create a schema from a predefined XML source that would serve as a model to the schema. In the XSLT you have IFs and CHOOSEs, so it sounds plausable. If there is a way with Schema itself, I don't know of it.
