[WD21] TableToXML question...

Startbeitrag von DarrenF am 08.08.2016 10:42

Hi guys,

Question regarding TableToXML function; I have a Table Control with data in it and use TableToXML to produce an XML file, and all works well, but how do I change the default "WINDEV_TABLE" & "\WINDEV_TABLE" tags to be what I want them to be (as below - XML gt & lt chars replaced with curly brackets to make it readable)?

I can see where the "ProductsToWebsite" and the individual items come from; they are the name of the Table Control and the column names - all good, but where does "WINDEV_TABLE" come from?

Anyone know how to change this default value or if it's even possible to change it?

{?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" standalone="yes"?}
{Description}Shimano XYZ Jersey{/Description}
{LongDescription}Shimano XYZ Jersey (long description){/LongDescription}
{Options}Red: L:{/Options}


Hi Darren

I don't know if it's possible during the process, but afterword, with
MyString is string=floadtext(XML file)
Mystring=replace(Mystring,"WINDEV_TABLE","Whatever you want")

it's clearly very easy

Best regards

inTableToExcel the TITLE of the tablecontrol is used. Maybe you have a tablecontrol without a 'table title'?

@Fabrice, yes I could use Replace, I just wanted to confirm I wasn't missing something, but I also want to avoid having to change every file before it goes out.

@Arie, Yes, "ProductsToWebsite" is the table control title... can't see anything in the table control that mentions "WINDEV_TABLE". WD adds "WINDEV_TABLE" to encapsulate all the records in the table control. Looks like it's a hard coded default?

As always, thanks for responding... :spos:

...and using HExportXML, "HF_DOCUMENT" is output to the XML in place of "WINDEV_TABLE"...
