Attaching XML data sources

Attaching XML data sources

If you are starting with an existing XSLT page, or if you don’t 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:

  1. In the Bindings panel (Window > Bindings), click the XML link.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  2. 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).
  3. 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.
