Microsoft .NET XML Tools (System.XML)

Stylus Studio provides integrated development support for System.XML, the official Microsoft .NET XML processing API. By providing integrated tools support for System.XML, Microsoft developers can be assured that their development environment will be 100% compatible with their production environments.

Validating XML Documents Using System.XML in Stylus Studio

To validate an XML document using Microsoft System.XML, just load an XML file, associate it with an XML schema (or generate an XML schema, then associate it (from the XML menu, select "Associate XML with Schema"), if you don't already have an XML content model to work with). Next, click on the "validate XML" button (the green checkmark icon), and select .NET XML Parser, as illustrated here:

Validating an XML document using Microsoft System.XML

Any XML parsing or validation errors reported by Microsoft System.XML will be reported to the XML output window, and using back-mapping, you can click on the error in the output window, and Stylus Studio will highlight the error in the XML editor.

Editing and Debugging XSLT Stylesheets Using System.XML in Stylus Studio

Stylus Studio XSLT Tools provide seamless integration with System.XML, including our XSLT editor, XSLT debugger, and XSLT profiler. To use the XSLT processing component provided in System.XML, choose Microsoft System.XML as your XSLT processor in your XSLT scenario properties, as illustrated here:
