Sense:X: Intelligent XML Editing

Sense:X is Stylus Studio® X16 XML's implementation of Intelligent XML Editing. It is much more than XML syntax coloring, XML code sensing, and XML code completion, however. Think of Sense:X as your very own, personal XML guide, right there at your fingertips, helping you get through any XML development challenge.

Intelligent XML Schema/DTD-Aware Code Sensing and Auto-Completion

Stylus Studio® X16 XML's Sense:X is vastly superior to other XML editors' so-called "intelligent XML editing."

Here are a just a few examples:

  • Intelligent Code Sensing: While you edit, Stylus Studio® displays a combo box of only those elements and attributes that are in scope (as determined from the XML document's model), relative to your cursor position. After all, what good is code sensing if your XML editor shows you every element and attribute, without respect to context?
  • Intelligent Code Completion: Other editors blindly insert a closing element tag every time you enter an opening element tag. Only Stylus Studio® with Sense:X is smart enough to correctly infer when you intend to close a particular tag, and only insert the closing tag at that time.
  • Automatic reloading of XML Schema/DTD: With Stylus Studio® and Sense:X, there's no need to manually close and re-open your XML documents after you make a change to your XML document's XML Schema or DTD. Stylus Studio® reloads XML Schemas and DTDs automatically when it detects a change.
