Hi Daniel,
if you are referring to the Custom File System API of Stylus, it's only available for Java; if you are generically referring to being able to invoke an XSLT processor from .NET, you can use the functionality exposed by the .NET runtime in the namespace System.Xml

Hope this helps,
Alberto

Hi Alberto,

thanks for replying.

the thing is that i need a soficticated parsing over any html input stream comming from different resources.

the system.xml namespace doesnt give that ability.

i need a parser that can take any html and turn it into well formed xml.

there are some tools available (TIDY etc) but none of them gives the ability i saw at stulus qizard.

any good idea how to proceed?

thanks,

daniel

Hi Daniel,
if you refer to the "HTML to XML" wizard, it uses the C++ version Tidy that you can find at http://tidy.sourceforge.net. It looks you can find a .NET wrapper at http://users.rcn.com/creitzel/tidy.html#dotnet.

As for the different behavior you experienced with Tidy vs Stylus, it could be caused by some setting you didn't set; try experimenting with the options it provides.

Hope this helps,
Alberto

hi,

thanks a lot!!!! it worked!!!!!

one problem though, about SaveString method.

i have done the following steps in order to work with the tidy dll at .NET :

1.download the TidyAtl.dll
2.regsvr32 /c tidyAtl.dll
3.TlbImp c:\TidyATL.dll /out:c:\Tidy.dll

i got a dll that i could use from .NET env.

i have wrote the following code in C# :


private int status=0;

private Document tdoc = new Document();


string optFile = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("config.tidy");
status = tdoc.LoadConfig(optFile);

status = tdoc.ParseString(input);

status = tdoc.CleanAndRepair();

status = tdoc.RunDiagnostics();


tdoc.SetOptBool(tidy.TidyOptionId.TidyForceOutput, 1 );


status = tdoc.SaveFile(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("output.xml"));


//the problem occured here
string tmp = tdoc.SaveString();



when i have checked the tmp variable in dubug time i saw it is NULL.



something is wrong with the function SaveString? or am i missing something here?



also i have searched the WEB and found documentation about a tidy dll that has more functions, like SaveBuffer...



HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



thanks,



danielb

Hi Daniel,
I looked at the documentation of the TidyATL library, and in the sample code there is this line, before the call to SaveString:

ok = tdoc.SetOptInt(TidyOutputBOM, False)

Maybe .NET doesn't like to insert the Unicode BOM inside a String object.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
