uicontrol in leanring content

Post by reinierk » Wed Oct 10, 2012 4:15 pm

Why can't I insert a <uicontrol> in a

Code: Select all

I can add an <uicontrol> to a freestanding <concept>. Is this a schema error or does the schema really no allow this! That would be very bad. How can you ever learn someone to press a button! :D

Unfortunately, the uicontrol element is part of the DITA user interface domain and the UI domain is not considered as part of the DTD DITA base and is not used from the learning DTD.

You can also easily figure that the uicontrol element can not be contained by a learningContent, even from the OASIS specification at:
http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.2/cs ... ntrol.html

However, to receive more detailed information you should also write on the DITA Users group on Yahoo.

Feel free to let us know in case you need further information.
