Re: XSLT for desktop applications
[Kanchana D S ] > Can XSLT be used for desktop applications? If so, how ? We have the requirement to design the GUI for a desktop application using XSLT. The help for developing non-web based applications (WinForms in the .NET environment)using xslt seems to be very little. That is, is it possible to generate the user interface for a WinForms application using XSLT? > If you are developing WinForms in .NET (using .NET Studio, I assume), then the best thing might be to use the .NET Studio capabilities for building desktop UI forms to use your WinForms. I would think that anything else would be very difficult, since Microsoft puts so much MS-specific code into those forms. Otherwise, a lot depends on how you want the desktop client to work. If you are going to use a browser, and tha browser can be limited to IE or Mozilla, it would probably not be hard to do. If you mean a regular desktop application, such as you might write in C++ or Java, and if all the data stays internal to the application (that is, it does not come from a server), there may not be much need for XML and XSLT. You could probably get more useful guidance if you said a little more about these applications and why someone wanted touse xslt. Cheers, Tom P
