Powerful report design tools let you build attractive PDF reports based on XML data and even generate XSL:FO to automate XML to PDF conversion. If the XSLT stylesheet required to transform to FO is not referenced in the XML document, you are prompted to assign one for the transformation. Note that you. Depending on your selection, the XSLT-for-FO will be created with or without the objects, properties, and values that are beyond the compliance level of FOP.

The Options command opens a dialog in which you specify settings for:. In the Design tab screenshot belowyou can set the application-wide general options for designs. In the Schema tab, elements and attributes can be listed alphabetically in ascending order.
To do this, check the respective check boxes in the Dslt tab screenshot below. By default, attributes are listed alphabetically and elements are listed in an order corresponding to the schema structure, as far as this is possible. In the Project sidebar, when an XML file or XSD file is double-clicked, one of three actions is executed depending on the options set in the Project tab of the Options dialog screenshot below: If the Save Without Confirmation setting altoga checked, then any changes to the project are automatically saved when the project or StyleVision is closed.
Otherwise, you will be prompted to save any unsaved changes. Default Encoding of output files. In the Default Encoding tab screenshot belowyou can set default encodings for the various outputs separately.
The encoding specifies the codepoints sets for various character sets. The dropdown list of each combo box displays a list of encoding options. Select the encoding you require for each output type, and click OK. Every new SPS you create from this point on will set the respective output encodings as defined in this tab.

These settings are the default encodings, and will be used for new SPSs. You cannot change the encoding of the currently open SPS using this dialog. Purchased versions of the product provide an option to disable the generation of this line. You can use any FO processor of your choice.
All you have to do is enter the path to the processor’s executable in this dialog. For details, see Setting up StyleVision. Selecting the FOP 0. You should be aware of the possible outcomes from this point in the processing.
These are as follows:. Any error will only be reported when the FO document is processed by the FO processor. It sends the following arguments to the executable:. These arguments are as used in the FOP command: You can use these arguments to invoke any FO processor, if the arguments suffice to make a successful call.
The package contains a catalog XML file that maps URIs to the taxonomy’s file locations, and so makes the taxonomy available offline to applications. The rules that specify how taxonomy packages are to be structured and built are laid out in the Taxonomy Packages Recommendation of XBRL. After you have downloaded a taxonomy package, you can set up StyleVision to automatically identify and use the entry point catalog file of the package.
Do this by adding the package to the list of active taxonomy packages. The catalog files of active packages will then be used to locate resources for operations such as XBRL validation. Package catalogs might redirect to incompatible resources. If the offline resource located by the package’s catalog file is incompatible with your existing environment, then errors might result. In this case, deactivate the taxonomy package and contact the creators of the package with the error information.
The Network Proxy section enables you to configure custom proxy settings. These settings affect how the application connects to the Internet for XML validation purposes, for example.
By default, the application uses the system’s proxy settings, so you should not need to change the proxy settings in most cases. If necessary, however, you can set an alternative network proxy using the options below.
Uses the Internet Explorer IE settings configurable via the system proxy settings. It also queries the settings configured with netsh. Manually specify the fully qualified host name and port for the proxies of the respective protocols. A supported scheme may be included in the host name for example: It is not required that the scheme is the same as the respective protocol if the proxy supports the scheme.
Provides a verbose log of the proxy detection. It can be refreshed with the Refresh button to the right of the Test URL field for example, when changing the test URL, or when the proxy settings have been changed.
The Options command opens a dialog in which you specify settings for: Enter the positive integer that is the required number of pixels.
The specified lengths are the distances between two points on the respective grid axis. These additional lengths are added to all altovva boxes in order to provide the extra length that is often required to accommodate the bigger text renditions of print formats. These values can be specified as percentage values or as absolute length units. This option typically applies to User-Defined Templates in which the template has been created for items that cannot be placed in context in the schema source of the design.
If a node is created within such a user-defined template, then the node can be created with i only its name, or ii with the full path to it from the schema root.

You can set one of these options as the default behavior, or, alternatively, ask to be prompted each time this situation arises. The default selection for this option is Always Ask.
An error is fatal, and no PDF will be generated. If you notice any problems with FOP 2. A resource pointed to by an active package’s catalog file will be xskt for all StyleVision operations that require that resource.
If such a resource is different in some way than the resource that was previously used by StyleVision, then errors might result when operations are run. For more information, see the caution at the bottom of this topic. Click Add Taxonomythen browse to the location of the taxonomy package, select it, and click Open. You can also select multiple packages to add zslt one time. The package will be added to the taxonomy package list in the dialog. The list is displayed as a tree of two levels.
The first level alfova the taxonomy; the second level shows the packages of that taxonomy. The check box to the left of a taxonomy entry indicates whether that taxonomy is active or not.

A newly added taxonomy will be active by default. Alltova OK to finish. The newly added packages will be displayed in the Taxonomy Packages pane of the Options dialog first screenshot above. Deactivation is useful if, say, you wish to switch between two versions of a taxonomy. The taxonomy package list is common to all these applications. If you edit the list in one application, then the modified list will be displayed in the other applications as well. If you edit the package list in one application, and another application is open at the same time, then the other application will display an alert asking whether xslr wish to reload the package list to reflect the modification.
The network proxy settings are shared among all Altova MissionKit applications. So, if you change the settings in one application, all MissionKit applications will be affected. L ooks up a WPAD script http: Resets and reloads the current auto-proxy-configuration. This action requires Windows 8 or newer, and may need up to 30s to take effect.
A semi-colon ; separated list of fully qualified host names, domain names, or IP addresses for hosts that should be used without a proxy. IP addresses may not be truncated and IPv6 addresses have to be enclosed by square brackets for example: Domain names must start with a leading dot for example: If this option is selected, then the following will not use the proxy: This field must not be empty if proxy-auto-configuration is used either through Use system proxy settings or Authomatic proxy configuration.
You can however set an option to split this kind of text block-level text with inline formatting into multiple MTD labels, where each label has the formatting that corresponds to the original text fragment. You can xlt choose to suppress the conversion of the condition and all its branches.
The properties of the following Design View components: Sorting of attributes and elements in the Schema Vo View. Actions to undertake when a file is double-clicked from within a project window.
The encoding of output documents. The Fp taxonomy packages that should be used for validations and transformations. Maximum width in pixels of markup tags. Grid size of layout containers in absolute length units. Default additional width and height of Layout Boxes. The default behavior when a node-template is created at a location where the context node is not know.
In the encoding attribute of the stylesheet’s xsl: In the charset attribute of the content-type meta element in the HTML header:. If you have selected FOP 0. If you use a processor other than FOP, the success of the transformation will depend upon the compliance level of the processor. If you wish to add an additional package to a taxonomy, do this:
