Hi Nell,

If you are refering that there must be content within an element, then I
believe you must give the element a type definition as shown in example 1
below.  If you are referring that an element name must exist within a
document, then by default the element must exist unless you add a
minOccurs="0" attribute to the element declaration. See example 2

1.  <xsd:element name="MANDATORY_ELEMENT" type="xs:date"/>
2.  <xsd:element name="OPTIONAL_ELEMENT" minOccurs="0"/>

Andy

Subject: Element declararion






I am trying to specify some interfaces in Schema and met definite problems.

I'll be very thankfull if anybody could help me.

My question is, is it possible with a help of schema to declare that an
element must NOT be empty?
As I searched through schema specification myself I could not find this
possibility.

Thank you,
Nell G.
