Mixing ESR Data type and XSD Objects

Dear PI forum users,

I have created some XSD containing complex types and thus "acting" as data types.

I would like to use such a complex type defined in XSD in an ESR Data type object.

But when I use the search help in the type column, i can only see other data types objects and not complex types defined in External definition objects.

Do you know if what I want to do is possible and how ?

Thanks a lot.

Jean-Charles

    Hi,

    i can only see other data types objects and not complex types defined in External definition objects.

    This is because only datatypes are shown in the search help. It is not possible to reference an external definition in a data type.

    What you can do is:

    1.) Recreate the complex types found your external definition as a data type, and reference it in your main data type

    or

    2.) Encode the data types into your external definition (cleaner)

    Hope this helps,

      Mark, Thanks for your response.

      I had done the same conclusion. I would like to have confirmation...

      That is pity. Hope future versions will solve this...
