Task topic: end message using Output class attribute

Post by SathyaOX »

Hi, I wanted to add a message "You have completed the procedure" at the end of the task topic. I think it can be done by adding outputclass attribute at the parent level element <task>. Wanted to understand where I can do this configuration at DITA. Which config file need to be edited?

Hi,

Maybe you can give us more details.
What version of Oxygen do you have?
Do you want to do this when editing XML in the Author visual editing mode or when publishing?
If you want this for publishing, are you publishing to plain HTML, Webhelp or PDF?
if you publish to PDF, are you customizing the PDF using CSS or using the older XSL-FO based approach?

Regards,
Radu

Hi,
Maybe you can ask the persons responsible for the PDF generation on the server side how to do this.
If you are using the DITA Open Toolkit on the server side, usually PDF customizations are done with XSLT stylesheets which are contributed either as PDF plugin or PDF customization folders:

There is also a book named "DITA For Print" which contains multiple customization scenarios.
