XMLBuildString (Function)
In french: XMLConstruitChaîne
Retrieves and formats the content of an XML document. This XML document could:
  • have been created with XMLDocument and modified with the XML functions.
  • correspond to an xmlDocument variable.
WINDEV The corresponding string can be saved as an XML file using the fSaveText function. Reminder: fSaveText creates a text file in ANSI format. To create a text file in Unicode format, use the functions fOpen / fWrite.
Java In the final XML document, the list of attributes is sorted in alphabetical order.
Java If the XML document to format contains the declaration of an internal DTD, the description of this DTD will not be transcribed in the final XML document.

Syntax

Retrieving the source of an XML document created by XMLDocument Hide the details

<Result> = XMLBuildString(<Name of XML document> [, <Creation options> [, <Output format>]])
<Result>: Character string
Formatted XML document. This result can be:
  • handled in memory.
  • WINDEV saved in a file in XML format by fSaveText.
  • ...
<Name of XML document>: Character string
Name of XML document to format. This document was created by XMLDocument and it was modified by the XML functions.
<Creation options>: Optional Integer constant
Combination of following values:
XMLDocumentDefault
(default value)
Generates the XML code with a header and from the root.
XMLFormattingGenerates XML code with formatting (indentation and carriage returns).
XMLCurrentPositionGenerates the XML code from the current position in the XML document (instead of the root).
XMLNoHeaderGenerates the XML code without header.
<Output format>: Optional Integer constant
Indicates the encoding used in the file header:
XMLNoEncoding
(Default value)
No encoding
XMLEncodingIso8859_1Encoding according to the Latin character set
XMLEncodingIso8859_2Encoding according to Iso8859_2
XMLEncodingIso8859_3Encoding according to Iso8859_3
XMLEncodingIso8859_4Encoding according to Iso8859_4
XMLEncodingIso8859_5Encoding according to Iso8859_5

XMLEncodingIso8859_8Encoding according to Iso8859_8
XMLEncodingIso8859_9Encoding according to Iso8859_9
XMLEncodingUTF16UNICODE encoding
Remark: in this case, the XMLBuildString function generates a 2 bytes header to specify the "Byte Order".
XMLEncodingUTF8UNICODE 8 encoding

Java The encoding used by default will be Iso8859_1 (Latin character set).
