I want to send a http request from client to local server and on the server I made a query with Linq that returns data in xml I also have .xsd file and a .cs file enerated from my xsd file that I want to validate my xml with. I have several questions:

how can I validate xml with c# generated class?
how can I return xml from server to client?


this is my c# class:

C#
//------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// <auto-generated>
//     This code was generated by a tool.
//     Runtime Version:4.0.30319.34209
//
//     Changes to this file may cause incorrect behavior and will be lost if
//     the code is regenerated.
// </auto-generated>
//------------------------------------------------------------------------------

using System.Xml.Serialization;

// 
// This source code was auto-generated by xsd, Version=4.0.30319.17929.
//

[System.Xml.Serialization.XmlRootAttribute(Namespace="", IsNullable=false)]
public partial class FlashList {
    
    private FlashListFlash flashField;
    
    /// <remarks/>
    public FlashListFlash flash {
        get {
            return this.flashField;
        }
        set {
            this.flashField = value;
        }
    }
}

public partial class FlashListFlash {
    
    private string vinField;
    
    private string modelTypeField;
    
    public string Vin {
        get {
            return this.vinField;
        }
        set {
            this.vinField = value;
        }
    }
    public string ModelType {
        get {
            return this.modelTypeField;
        }
        set {
            this.modelTypeField = value;
        }
    }
}


and this is my XML format:

XML
<FlashList>
   <flash>
      <Vin>aa123654654s6546</Vin>
      <ModelType>x23j</ModelType>
   </flash>
</FlashList>


and this is my main file that I made the query:

C#
namespace WebApplication1
{
    [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    [System.ComponentModel.ToolboxItem(false)]

    public class MyWebService : System.Web.Services.WebService
    {
       
        [WebMethod]
        public XXX MyService(string vinValue)
        {
            FlashListFlash flash = new FlashListFlash();


            LinqSqlDataContext db = new LinqSqlDataContext();
            var reportdata =    from Vin in db.Vin
                                from Global in db.Globals
                                from Associate in db.Associas
                                where Vin.Vin == vinValue && Vin.NHard == Global.NHard &&
                                Global.NomeFile == Associate.KeyJoined &&
                                SqlMethods.Like(Global.NVerHard, "0" + Vin.NVerHard)
                                select new XElement("flash",
                                    new XElement("Vin", Vin.Vin),
                                    new XElement("ModelType", Associate.Model_Type)
                                );



            XElement reportXml = new XElement("FlashList", reportdata);
            string fileName = @"D:\FlashList.xml";
            Directory.CreateDirectory(Path.GetDirectoryName(fileName));
            reportXml.Save(fileName);
            return XXX;
        }
    }
}

You can't validate xml file with C# class. You can validate the xml content corresponds to the data structure and data type. Search Google for XML validator.

XML validation is the process of checking a document written in XML (eXtensible Markup Language) to confirm that it is both well-formed and also "valid" in that it follows a defined structure. A well-formed document follows the basic syntactic rules of XML, which are the same for all XML documents.[1] A valid document also respects the rules dictated by a particular DTD or XML schema, according to the application-specific choices for those particular
