Talk:XML basics

Jump to: navigation, search

There's a lot of great info here but it's kind of hard to read. Take the first sentence for example:

"Scheme (.xml file) are part of addon where anything drawn on screen defined, so it's place where you should start creating your own."

Is the url here: "\FrameXML\UI.xsd" Windows specific - putting the XML through a validotor is giving me errors with the schema (on OSX):

<Ui xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" ..\FrameXML\UI.xsd"> </Ui>

Actually the <Ui xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" ..\FrameXML\UI.xsd"> </Ui> Holds 4 options, the xmmlns bit (namespace), the xsi bit(I think thists the XML default doctype), the schemalocation wich tells you where its placed in relation to the namespace (i think) and (and this is most importantly) the location of the .xds file itself. so, the ..\FrameXML\UI.xsd is windows specific. change it either to ../FraeXML/UI.xsd or to the location of the ui.xsd file.

Is this absolutely needed? Because if it were, I think that it would be mentioned earlier. I am trying to make my own addon, and have gotten lots of information from here, but now I see that apparently I have to do more. Could somebody please clarify this for me?

Maybe just keep a very short and basic introduction example and point to MDN instead Ketho (talk) 12:32, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Would it be work to add a small section to XML user interface with the MDN link? (That is the page that previously was recommended for merging into this one.) DDC (talk) 12:55, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
