Attaching XML data sources
If you are starting with an existing XSLT page, or if you dont attach an XML data source when creating a new XSLT page with Dreamweaver, you will need to attach an XML data source using the Bindings panel.
To attach an XML data source:
- In the Bindings panel (Window > Bindings), click the XML link.
You can also click the Source link at the upper-right corner of the Bindings panel to add an XML data source.
- Do one of the following:
- Select Attach a Local File, click the Browse button, browse to a local XML file on your computer, and click OK.
- Select Attach a Remote File, enter the URL of an XML file on the Internet (such as one coming from an RSS feed).
- Click OK to close the Locate XML Source dialog box.
Dreamweaver populates the Bindings panel with the schema of your XML data source. For a guide to the symbols in the schema, see Creating XSLT pages.
