XBRL Component Settings

Once you added an XBRL document to the mapping area (see Adding XBRL Files as Mapping Components), you can configure the settings applicable to the component from the Component Settings dialog box.

 

 

To open the Component Settings dialog box:

Double-click the header of the XBRL component, or right-click it and select Properties.

mf_xbrl_component_settings

 

The Component Settings dialog box includes the following settings.

 

Component name

The component name is automatically generated when you create the component. However, you can change the name at any time.

 

The component name can contain spaces and full stop characters. It may not contain slashes, backslashes, colons, double quotes, leading or trailing spaces. If you want to change the name of the component, be aware of the following:

 

If you intend to deploy the mapping to FlowForce Server, the component name must be unique.
It is recommended to use only characters that can be entered at the command line. National characters may have a different encoding in Windows and at the command line.

Taxonomy

Specifies the file name and path of the main taxonomy file.

 

To change the location of the file, click Browse and select the new file.

 

To edit the file in your XBRL editor (for example, XMLSpy), click Edit.

Input XBRL File

Specifies the file name of the input XBRL instance for the currently selected XBRL component. This field is filled automatically when you first insert the XBRL component and assign an XBRL instance file.

 

To change the location of the file, click Browse and select the new file.

 

To edit the file in your XBRL editor (for example, XMLSpy), click Edit.

Extract Inline XBRL

When this check box is selected, the Inline XBRL content will be extracted from the .html, .htm, or .xhtml file specified as input.

Output XBRL File

Specifies the file name and path where the XBRL target instance file is placed, if the component is used as a mapping target.

 

The entry from the Input XBRL File field is automatically copied to this field when you assign the input XBRL instance file. If you do not assign an input XBRL instance file to the component, then this field contains the file name and path of the taxonomy file and the extension "xml".

 

To change the location of the file, click Browse and select the new file.

 

To edit the file in your XBRL editor (for example, XMLSpy), click Edit.

Taxonomy schema reference

The path of the referenced/associated taxonomy schema file relative to the MFD file. Use this field if you want to specify a different taxonomy location for validation. The taxonomy reference is written into the href attribute of the link:schemaRef element, for example:

<link:schemaRef xlink:type="simple" xlink:href="..\..\nanonull.xsd"/>

Cast values to target types

Allows you to define if the target XML schema types should be used when mapping, or if all data mapped to the target component should be treated as string values. By default, this setting is enabled.

Pretty print output

Reformats the output XBRL document to give it a structured look. Each child node is offset from its parent by a single tab character.

Create digital signature

Allows you to add a digital signature to the XBRL output instance file. Adding a digital signature is possible when you select "Built-in" as transformation language (see also Digital Signatures).

Encoding

Allows you specify the following settings of the output instance file:

 

Encoding name
Byte order
Whether the byte order mark (BOM) character should be included.

StyleVision Power Stylesheet file

This option allows you to select or create an Altova StyleVision stylesheet file. Such files enable you to output data from the XBRL instance file to a variety of formats suitable for reporting, such as HTML, RTF, and others.

Save all file paths relative to MFD file

When this option is enabled, MapForce saves the file paths displayed on the Component Settings dialog box relative to the location of the MapForce Design (.mfd) file. This setting affects the following files:

 

The XBRL taxonomy file
The XBRL input file
The XBRL output file
The StyleVision stylesheet file
