Viewing XML instance files

XML files that are inserted into a design are displayed as collapsed XML boxes.

design_xml-box-collapsed

The design of an XML box is basically identical to the design of a schema box. The box can be expanded and then shows three sub-sections. In the screenshot below, the arrowhead at the left of the Schema section indicates that this XML instance has an XML schema defined.

design_xml-box-expanded-sections

You can further expand the Schema and the Root sections of the XML box to see which XML schema and which namespaces are defined for the XML file.

design_xml-box-expanded-all

If the XML instance has also an XSLT stylesheet defined, you can expand the stylesheets section and view information on the XSLT file.

To view an XML file:

1.Drag-and-drop the XML file you want to view from the Explorer window onto a Design window or use the context menu to add the file to the current design.
2.Optionally, expand the sub-sections to view detailed information on schemas, stylesheets, or namespaces.
