Element Information

  • Parent elements: group, choice, sequence, complexType, restriction (both simpleContent and complexContent), extension (both simpleContent and complexContent)


any attributes



(The ? sign declares that the element can occur zero or one time inside the sequence element)

Attribute Description
id Optional. Specifies a unique ID for the element
maxOccurs Optional. Specifies the maximum number of times the sequence element can occur in the parent element. The value can be any number >= 0, or if you want to set no limit on the maximum number, use the value "unbounded". Default value is 1
minOccurs Optional. Specifies the minimum number of times the sequence element can occur in the parent element. The value can be any number >= 0. Default value is 1
any attributes Optional. Specifies any other attributes with non-schema namespace

Example 1

<xs:element name="personinfo">
      <xs:element name="firstname" type="xs:string"/>
      <xs:element name="lastname" type="xs:string"/>
      <xs:element name="address" type="xs:string"/>
      <xs:element name="city" type="xs:string"/>
      <xs:element name="country" type="xs:string"/>

Example 2

This example shows a declaration for an element called "pets" that can have zero or more of the following elements, dog and cat, in the sequence element:

<xs:element name="pets">
    <xs:sequence minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
      <xs:element name="dog" type="xs:string"/>
      <xs:element name="cat" type="xs:string"/>
