In the VS command prompt that is part of the VS SDK you can enter the following to generate an xsd file from an xml file:

xsd XMLfilename.xml

This will generate an xsd file with the same name as the xml file

Then you can enter:

xsd [.xsd file generated from above] /d /language:CS

This will generate a .cs file with the same name as the .xml and .xsd from above. In your program you can then load the xml file into a dataset in memory and query it programmatically using the class that was generated for that xml file.

I am searching for a way to perform the above steps programmatically rather than using the command prompt. Does anyone know how to do this?

Yes that is similar, but I need the class (.cs file) that is auto-generated when using the command prompt. Can this be generated programmatically?
