Obsolete: Authentic View Editing operations

Home Prev Top Next

When XML data is displayed as data in Authentic View, it is possible to manipulate individual elements using standard editing operations such as cut, copy, and paste. However, not all XML data nodes can be edited. So, in order to carry out an editing operation, first a property is used to test whether editing is possible, and then a method is called to perform the editing operation.


The only method that does not have a test is the method EditSelectAll, which automatically selects all elements displayed in the document.


The following is a list of properties and methods that perform editing operations. Each property returns a BOOL, and the methods have no parameter.
