Cache External Schemas

By enabling this setting you will cache your schemas externally, gaining performance in the process. More explicitly it downloads the referenced objects in a cache folder that can be found here : \AppData\Roaming\xsd2code\cache

Cleanup Code

By enabling this setting, Xsd2code will clean up the code for you, it does so by, for example :

  • Reducing namespaces
  • Reducing attribute names
  • Useage of var
  • Arraging the "this" qualifier

For example here is a section of code, and its cleaned up version

With the unnecessary characters removed the code is now more efficient.

Enable Debug

By enabling this setting you will not generate a debug attribute into you generated class, this setting indicates wether or not a generate attribute is present in the code. If enabled, the debugger will not step through, and the code will be missing this line :
