XML Forms EP6 SP2

Hi portal people 😊

A couple of easy XML Forms Builder related questions for you:

1) How can I see the raw XML generated by an XML Form. This was possible with EP5 but with EP6, I can only download the rendered XML?

2) How can I plug in my own XSLT to render the XML instead of using the XSLT generated by the XML Form Builder? I've read about Pipelines and XSLT Filters but I can't find any instructions on how to do this.

Many thanks,

Rash

    you will find all generated XML and XSL files in /etc/xmlforms/...

    every project has his own folder with files.

    You can look in but I wouldn't edit them. there might be problems to open the files with XML Forms Builder again.

    good luck!

    To render the xml generated with the xml form just access the proyect you have created in <i>etc/xmlforms/<proyect name></i>

    and there, download to your local pc the <form>.xsl you want to render (<i>renderlist, ListShow, ListEdit, edit, show</i>)

    Then with an editor like eclipse(see foot) you can modify the look&feel of the form giving it a new render.

    then upload the new xsl with the same name as the older one and confirm when the portal advise you that you already have a document named like the one you are uploading.

      I am on EP5 SP5 and use XML Spy. When I open the xsl file, it aslways complaines the file is not well-formed even I do not have any problems with built-in MSXML parser.
