What exactly are you trying to do, John?  A tool like CodeGen should
take care of creating the XML for you, but I don't really understand
your question.

Subject: [dba-VB] Iterating class properties

Does anyone know a way to iterate the properties of a class in VB.Net or
C#.Net (or in .Net in general)?  There is built-in functionality to
store classes out to XML files and this stuff does exactly that,
apparently using only the Get/Let statements, i.e. if there is not both
a get and let statement for a property then the process fails to convert
that property to XML.  

So if MS does it, is that capability publicly available?  Is there a
property iterator buried in the innards of the class object?
