Subject:XSL/XSLT path Author:bryan craven Date:25 Feb 2006 07:22 PM
Although not new to XML I am beginning to use Stylus Studio versus XMLSpy. My problem is that every time I try to display my xml with a properly constructed XSL in the same folder I get a stupid path error that is referencing the Documents and Settings folder.
I do not put XML files in any folder except those dedicated to the development of XML.
A further issue is that these same files work perfectly well and behave as expected when opened in XMLSpy. they are files that were developed in XMLSpy but just exhibit error messages in Stylus Studio.

when previewing an XML document from the XML Editor in Stylus Studio, Stylus actually opens a local cached copy of the XML document, stored in your temporary directory, in the hosted Internet Explorer component. It does that because potentially the XML document could be originated by URL schemes that are not supported by IE, or it could even be the result of a non-XML to XML conversion, or a web service call invocation, or others.
The "canonical" way to preview an XSLT transformation result in Stylus Studio is to open the XSLT itself, and then run it, specifying the XML document as the default input source in the scenario; that way you can also preview the XSLT using several different XML inputs, corresponding to different scenarios.
Now, that said, you clearly have a point; in those cases in which Internet Explorer can in fact open the XML document you want to preview directly from the XML Editor, Stylus Studio should open the original document, not a copy; that would avoid the problem you are seeing. We'll solve this issue as soon as possible.
