Loading info to "Results" panel

If I create an xml document, perhaps through a transformation scenario, and that xml document is valid against the report.dtd found in frameworks, is there a way to load that document into the "Results" panel so that users can view results and navigate to items in the report?

Hi Steve,

You do not have API available to contribute your own report to our "Results" view. But from a Workspace Access plugin you can define a custom view in the plugin.xml: ... plugin.xml

and then from the Java or Javascript code on the "customizeView" callback provide some contents for the view: ...

Inside the view you could maybe add a Swing JEditorPane if you set HTML content in it.
Or used this new API we added in Oxygen 18.1:

ro.sync.exml.workspace.api.standalone.StandalonePluginWorkspace.createEditorComponentProvider(String[], String) ... space.html

to create a component in which you can set an XML document with a referenced CSS file and having it rendered like it would get rendered in the Author visual editing mode.


In Oxygen 19.0 we added this API:


which allows you to add messages to the results view, each message having a target URL and line/column information, allowing people to double click those messages and Oxygen will automatically open the files in which the problems are reported.
