WYSIWYG XML Editor

 

Sydock DP allows for text editing in a visual ( WYSIWYG ) form. This means that you don't have to deal with an XML-code, but with a regular text, same as you would do using a regular text processor (for example, MS WORD) As you type your text, Sydock DP automatically forms a correct XML document in accordance with the selected W3C XML schema.

Sydock Document Processor makes use of XSLT и CSS to visualize and edit XML documents. Unlike other XML-document editors, which use only CSS, the realization of a native XSLT processor in Sydock DP allows for visualization and editing not only the whole document, but also for creating a necessary view to visualize and edit only certain elements, parts of a big XML document.

Visual Style Editor

Creating styles is easy with Sydock, even if you are not familiar with the XSL - language for creating styles. A Sydock DP built-in style editor presents style editing in a visual ( WYSIWYG ) form. The editor includes a set of ready-made form controls (check-boxes, combo-boxes, text-fields, drop-down lists etc.), so you can insert them into your document wherever you need them. If you are a professional designer and want to create more complicated schemas, a text style editor is at your service.

Repeating Sections

Sydock forms can have sections that repeat. The initial view starts with one section, and users can add more sections when and if necessary. The repeating section control enables form designers to identify sections and table rows that can be repeated by the user when filling out a form.

Conditional Formatting

Form designers can apply conditional formatting to fields and sections, causing them to appear in specific ways when specific conditions are met.

Optional Sections

Form designers can add optional sections. These sections can be called up by following a prompt specified in the section’s Property field. A user might see the prompt, “Click here to insert a Time Report” at the bottom of a Status Report form. By clicking on that prompt, the form will display the optional time report, which would not otherwise be visible. This control enables designers to identify data sections that will be added on demand by the end user.

Standard Control Toolbox

Sydock includes all the controls that designers expect from a forms design package—from text box and drop-down list box controls to controls for rich text boxes, option buttons,hyperlinks, pictures, expression boxes, as well as optional and repeating sections.

Managing Controls

Button Control with Built-in Behaviors

SDP provides designers with button controls that are predefined. With a predefined button for submitting form data, for example, a form designer need only specify the database, Web service, or server to which the data should be sent; there is no complicated coding involved. Similarly, the designer need only specify a database, Web service, or server in order to instigate a query that will result in form data being gathered. The complexities of creating the query have already been taken care of.
