Copy XML of a AuthorNode

Post by SSC » Fri Jun 27, 2014 11:25 am


we are using the Eclipse Oxygen Author in Version 16.

In the Context Menu of the Oxygen Author you are able to paste certain text from the clipboard as XML.
I would appreciate, if this would also work the other way round, so that you could also copy the complete xml of a "fullySelectedAuthorNode".

In detail I currently have the case that I want to get the whole XML as text of an AuthorElement.
I have not found a convenience method for that or am I really forced to generate the XML as text with a StringBuilder manually by navigating through the AuthorElement and its child elements?

Best regards,

Hi Simon,

You could use the API:

AuthorDocumentController.createDocumentFragment(AuthorNode node, boolean copyContent)

and then serialize the fragment using:

AuthorDocumentController.serializeFragmentToXML(AuthorDocumentFragment fragment)
