Validates XML against schema.
Please pass in XML file path and a valid XSD schema.
Return list of errors, so you see them all.
If you use Process.SetCurrentDirectory to change current folder for the application process, the library uses this folder to search for referenced xsd files.

This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
For Server be aware that server has limited permissions and may not be able to access all files on a computer.

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "Process.SetCurrentDirectory"; "/Users/cs/Documents/todo/XML Validate/") ]
Set Variable [ $result ; Value: MBS("XML.ValidateFile"; "test.xml"; XML Validation::Schema) ]
Set Field [ XML Validation::Result ; $result ]
