oxygen web author support of form control elements like text box, drop down.. similar to form based editing in xml edito

Wed May 09, 2018 5:19 pm

we are evaluating xml web author for our use cases.. and looking for form based editing similar to what we have in xml editor.

is it possible to create form controls like text box, drop down, buttons with custom actions and events?

as far i see, in oxygen web author xml, it doesn't support above form controls by default. in such case, can we create custom form controls for xml editing?..

Hello,

Web Author support the majority of the form-controls that are available in Oxygen XML Editor, for example: textfield, button, combobox, etc. Here is the documentation page: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... atrix.html.

You can also give it a try in one of our online samples: https://www.oxygenxml.com/oxygen-xml-we ... =Anonymous .

Web Author also supports development of custom form-controls - for example our MathML support is implemented as a form-control: https://github.com/oxygenxml/web-author-mathml-plugin .

Best,
Cristian

Hello,

Travel Guide uses a custom schema. However, the form-controls are configured in a CSS file associated with the edited document. By default in DITA we use form-controls for colspecs of a CALS table. However, you can customize the CSS included in the default DITA framework [1] to add form-controls for other attributes as well.

Best,
Cristian
