Where is the XML Schema Designer?

    Question

  • Hi,

     

    In Orcas Beta1, I added a new XML schema file but I only saw the text editor. Where can I enable the designer to see the visual representation of elements? The "Open With" menu only shows XML Editor which is just a text editor.

     

    Compared to the XSD Designer in VS2005, is there any enhancement in Orcas?

     

    Thanks,

    Heng-yi

  • The original schema designer in VS has been removed from the product.  There will be a new schema designer, but it will ship in off-cycle release after the Orcas is shipped.  Currently, you have to use VS2005 to edit the schema file, or use the Xml Editor, which looks like a text editor, but does provide intellisense and schema validation.

  • I see the same thing with the Beta2 TeamSuite VMC image I just downloaded
