Now Hello Everyone!
Thank you all of what we used to be discussing before, but now i need to take a more complex discussion.
Start from what we have:
1. The ID CS5 document with several linked textframes within it.
2. The database consisting of multiple Ads, every can be a formatted text or an image.
3. Written application that serves the database and able to export a file of any type with by-string Ads definitions or with the XML consisting of multiple nodes.
And we have a need to bring the database's content into the linked textframes of ID document.
Content is the multiple paragraphs of text ads, sometimes images.
And, now i know, there are several scripting-nested abilities to provide data into ID document, such a Script, IDML, and XML.
From their, the XML seems to be a most solving feature, but then how to format it to let the ID to traverse text and image paragraphs?
I mean, is it possible in general (without any third-party software),
and is there any resources or tutorials to start with it.
Thanks in advance, Alex.
Once exported XML from text frame contents i discovered it's structure has repeating <Root> tags with attributes. one of those was href.
Simply equal its value to the image path, i imported what i want.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<Root>This is text paragraph</Root>
I even can import another .indd document, cool.
But operation, you know, the service itself doesn't seem to be exccellent for me programmer. Some softwear issues like why have i use this repeating Root tag and so on.
Where can i find more complex information about operation like that?
only have here CS3, but i guess the operation would be the like on CS5.
