Output Views

The Output View tab (illustration below) displays: (i) the XSLT-for-HTML stylesheet generated from the SPS design; and (ii) a preview of the HTML output, produced by transforming the Working XML File with the generated  XSLT stylesheet.

 

In the HTML Output View tab, the view can be switched between the XSLT-for-HTML stylesheet and the HTML output preview by clicking the dropdown button in the HTML Output View tab and selecting the XSLT option or the output preview option as required.

XSLT view

The XSLT view displays the XSLT-for-HTML generated from the currently active SPS. The stylesheet is generated afresh each time the XSLT view is selected.

 

A stylesheet in an Output View tab is displayed with line-numbering and expandable/collapsible elements; click the + and – icons in the left margin to expand/collapse elements. The stylesheet in XSLT view cannot be edited, but can be searched (select Edit | Find) and text from it can be copied to the clipboard (with Edit | Copy).

 

Note: The XSLT stylesheets generated from the SPS can be separately generated and saved using the File | Save Generated Files command.

 

HTML preview

HTML preview displays the output produced by transforming the Working XML File with the XSLT-for-HTML. The output is generated afresh each time HTML preview tab is clicked. Note that it is the saved version of the Working XML File that is transformednot the temporary version that is edited with Authentic View.

 

If no Working XML File is assigned when HTML preview is selected in the HTML View tab, you will be prompted to assign a Working XML File. For DB-based SPSs, there is no need to assign a Working XML File since a temporary non-editable XML file is automatically generated when the DB is loaded and this XML file is used as the Working XML File.

 

Note: The output files generated from the SPS can be separately generated and saved using the File | Save Generated Files command.
