XML Generator RRS feed

  • Question

  • Looking for a friendly reliable, XML generator tool, based on a given XSD file. Preferably as built-in Microsoft feature or a recommended Freeware. If possible a tool that also supports importing a given IMAGE into a String base64 XML field.

    To clarify, "given" means provided in a file in standard format to import from.

    More Details

    The need from the tool, is to provide the user with some simple graphic interface (GUI), to enter values for the fields of the XML, and to import the XSD (and as possible also an Image for the String base 64 file). Upon user, request , the tool will generate the XML based on the entered values, the XSD definition, and Image respectively. The XML result could be saved to a file in standard XML format.

    Thank u.

  • Hi moital,

    This forum is discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    The XML Schema Definition Tool is a build-in Microsoft feature tools for generating XML doucument for XSD file. But it doesn't have graphic interface, it is run with command line. More information about XML Schema Definition Tool, please refer to following link.

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/x6c1kb0s(v=vs.110).aspx

    If you want a tool with graphic interface, please try with DocFlex/XML - XSDDoc - XML Schema Documentation Generator, which is a free tool. But it is not a Microsoft product. And I also don't use it before. The usage information, please refer to:

  • Thank u for your reply.

    The xsddoc seems to provide means to document XML definition, rather than data entry into an XML which is what i'm looking for. Nevertheless it is good to be aware of the xsddoc tool.

    Would u be so kind as to refer me to the correct msdn forum where i should place my question ?
