Durga PrasadSubject: Create and Edit .FO file directly
Author: Durga Prasad
Date: 13 Dec 2004 03:52 PM
I want to be able to create .Fo file directly and watch the preview
PDF file. Is it possible with stylus studio ??

I don't need to use either xml or xsl, basically i want to hardcode the
.fo file directly from scratch.

How can i do that ??

Any help appreciated..

If I have understood correctly you are authoring FO using the XML editor.
You are already working with an XML file, you just need to point
the XSLT scenario to the file you are authoring.

I have a LotusNotes application with which i am generating hardcoded
.fo file(similar to generating text file and saving it as .fo file)
which will contain the fo tags and data. I am giving it as input
to the FOP software using a batch file.
Shell(|C:\FOP\viewfop.bat "C:\FOP\reservation.fo" "C:\FOP\reservation.pdf"|, 1)
when the shell statement executes it will create the pdf file.

This solution works just fine for me, as it doesn't require any XML and XSLT

Here i know how the output PDF should look like so now i am trying to
build a FO file accordingly, and i am looking for an editor which will
create and let me preview the FO file.

Durga <br> <br> what you have called <<" ... hardcoded .fo file(similar to generating text file and saving it as .fo file) <br> ">><br> arean XML documents; FO is XML.<br> <br> Now what I have suggested was to open those .fo files using the Stylus Studio XML Editor<br> do the editing you need then open the xslt i sent you using <br> the XSLT editor and configure the scenario properties (only one time).<br> <br> then run the preview as many time you want to see the result as PDF.<br> <br> I posted some screenshots to show the process<br> Hope this helps<br> Ivan<br>
