Parts of the XML Publisher Editor

The XML Publisher Editor has three main parts:

  • The XML Publisher canvas. You use the canvas to format your report and identify its contents.
  • The data sources panel. You use the data sources panel to identify the XML sources (relational tables and XML documents, for example) you want to include in your finished report. You select the data you want in your report by dragging the nodes that represent the data from the data sources panel and dropping them on the XML Publisher canvas.
  • The Properties window. You use the Properties window to fine-tune settings that affect the finished report's format and contents. For example, you can use XPath expressions to specify formatting based on results returned by the XPath expression against a given document node.

In addition, Stylus Studio displays the Preview window when you preview a report.
