Reply to: Can I open a document in a XFT from?

Which type of document do you wish to open: XML, RTF, TXT, DOC, PDF, HTML, other?

Also, what do you mean by “open”? Does that mean to make the contents available to a script or control in your XFT form, or does it mean to render it as one might expect that particular document type to be rendered (which might differ depending on the document type you are opening).

XFT does not have any inherent ability to render XML documents in a specific way, if that is what you are asking, however, it is possible to read the contents of an XML file and make that available to a script as a string, to an XML processor (such as MSXML, Saxon, Xalan) or to an ActiveX control for rendering inside the XFT (such as a copy of Internet Explorer or other control).
