Synchronise XML Schema Logical Model view with schema text

Post by jokester01au » Fri Mar 10, 2006 2:17 am

Hi,

It'd be great if the logical model view of the schema editor could synchronise with the schema text, in the same way that the full model does.

It would also be great to be able to toggle this on and off in both views.

I use oxygen within Eclipse 3.2.

Regards,
Joe.

Hello,

The logical model view offers a compiled version of the schema, obtained by resolving the references, type restrictions, redefinitions etc. That means there is not a direct connection anymore between the text editor of the schema file and the schema model, as for the full model view. Maintaining such a connection for the logical model is not trivial. The logical model is designed only as an overview of the schema components. If you want to browse the text editor of the schema using the diagram or to find the precise location in the diagram of the cursor position in the text editor you can use the full model view at any time.

Regards,
Sorin
