Using xml/xsl in .net framework
Hi all. I am desparately seeking information/example of how to use an xml doc (using xsl stylesheet that producing an html doc) from within .net (vb.net specifically but that doesn't really matter)...NOT using datagrid/database structure. The problem is I can ONLY find examples on using xml via the datagrid pulling from and writing to database structures.This is what I'm trying to accomplish (vb.net BTW is mandated by others for this task). Any clues appreciated...or please just point me in the right direction...I've been through the obvious newsgroups, done umpteen Googles, read books...no luck. (1) Created xml docs for work instructions...mostly <step> elements, a few contain <measurement> elements to capture data input by the user. I'm using xslt to select and present an html doc, including some vbscript for some buttons created using the xsl stylesheet (such as StartTime, EndTime...to capture system time, etc.). (2) The user should open an aspx page, select some params from dropdown boxes (i.e., customer, workstation, assembly) and click on Submit. This should open the appropriate Work Instruction xml doc using those "system" parameters and references another xml doc that specifies which doc to open. I've figured out how to accomplish 1 and 2 (well, in theory at least), but (3) I need to serve up the xml doc within .net and have some other features within the same page for the users (such as look-up deviations from another database, etc.) so I can't have the xml doc own the entire screen. This would tell me that I somehow have to put the xml doc in a frame or something. I need to capture any user input, and save the xml doc to a new filename (updated each time user input occurs). Someone PLEASE help me... Thanks as always, Kathy XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
