    The following is a link to a recipe describing how to set this up, [url=http://na.justsystems.com/webhelp/en/topleafplugin/6.0/TopLeafPlugin.html#How%20do%20I%20apply%20toc=no%20when%20processing%20topicref%20elements?]http://na.justsystems.com/webhelp/en/topleafplugin/6.0/TopLeafPlugin.html#How%20do%20I%20apply%20toc=no%20when%20processing%20topicref%20elements?[/url]

    Reply To: TopLeaf: Adding target page number to XREF in default TopLeaf transform

    I tried following the instructions in the recipe with a fresh copy of the default stylesheet and it worked fine for me. (I did notice that I missed a step in the recipe. In the mapping for tl:xrefline/tl:folio, on the Start Tag tab the format should be set to “inline”. If it is left as the default value, block, the page number will be displayed on the next line in your PDF doc. However, it is still displayed even if format is set to “block”. [I'll add that step to the recipe and repost it.])

    If you are unable to get the stylesheet working, you can zip the stylesheet folder and send it to [email protected] and I'll take a look at it. The stylesheet folder is found in c:Documents and SettingsAll UsersTopLeaf on Windows XP and c:ProgramDataTopLeaf on Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    A recipe has been added to the TopLeaf Plugin How-to Guide describing how to do this. You can find it at [url=http://na.justsystems.com/webhelp/en/topleafplugin/6.0/TopLeafPlugin.html#How%20do%20I%20display%20the%20target%20page%20number%20in%20an%20XREF?]http://na.justsystems.com/webhelp/en/topleafplugin/6.0/TopLeafPlugin.html#How%20do%20I%20display%20the%20target%20page%20number%20in%20an%20XREF?[/url]

    In the kind of system that would be needed to deliver dynamic content the way you describe, XMetaL's role would be for document creation. I.e. for creating DITA content and tagging various parts of the content using conditional attributes to identify which cases they apply to.

    However, for filtering the content and delivering it to the auto tech's iPad a server would be needed that can retrive the content from a storage repository and build the document that is actually viewed by the auto tech. For setting that up, you would need an outside firm. I believe this type of system is something that SDL (www.sdl.com) has been actively delivering to customers for the last few years so you might try approaching them. Other CMS vendors and system integrators may also be able to provide some advice on the system you are interested in.

    Reply To: PDF output: Alignment of step number when step contains a small icon in

    In a week or two JustSystems will be announcing the release of an output plugin that uses TopLeaf from Turnkey Systems to create PDF output from DITA files. The misalignment of the step number does not happen when PDF output is generated using the default stylesheet for the TopLeaf Plugin. Please see the attached screenshot of the output.

    If you’d like more information about the Top Leaf plug-in for XMetaL please contact us at http://na.justsystems.com/content-about-contact-us

    The following provides additional information about the patch and the underlying problem.

    • The problem only occurs in XMetaL Author 6.0.
    • The problem is not dependent on the type of file being checked out. I.e. if a user has this problem checking out a map, they will also have the same problem checking out a topic.
    • The problem is dependent on the Documentum settings for the user that is logged in. I.e. it is possible that user-A will have no problem checking out a file, while user-B will not be able to checkout the same file.
    • The underlying problem fixed by this patch is the following. The connector code incorrectly used a method to get the user id interchangeably with a method to get the user name. If the user’s Documentum settings are such that the user id and user name are the same, everything will work fine. However if they are different the connector will, incorrectly, believe the file is checked out by a different user because it is comparing the user id with the user name and in this case they are different. The patch fixes this by consistently using the same method throughout the code.

    If you believe you are experiencing this problem and would like the patch please contact support and we will send it out to you.

    I think you can find most of the information you need in this posting, http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,512.msg1609.html#msg1609

    The WebService.navigate() call can take an http url rather than the file path used in the example. The example also show how to get a reference to the XMetaL Application object so you can open your file in XMetaL Author from the web page that does the export.

    The following code works for me. Note that it will do nothing if the file was opened from the file system because Application.ActiveDocument.CRLocator will be null. However if the file was opened from the repository it should display the repository id of the active document.

    // XMetaL Script Language JSCRIPT:
    if( Application.ActiveDocument.CRLocator )
    {
      Application.Alert( Application.ActiveDocument.CRLocator.resourceID );
    }

    I believe you can use:

    Application.ActiveDocument.CRLocator

    If it is null, the document was opened from the file system, if it is not null the document was opend from the repository and it contains the CRCL Resource Locator.

    Reply To: script example: web service call from XMetaL Author script

    One of my collegues pointed out that I forgot to set the reference to xmlhttp to null at the end of the example code. Please note that any objects that are created using “new” in javascript should be set to null when they are no longer needed. Otherwise XMetaL Author may hang during exit such that the user interface closes but the XMetaL process remains in memory. This causes XMetaL Author to fail to launch until you open the Windows task manager and kill the xmetaL process.

    So the code should look like this:

    var ASYNC  = true;
    var xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject(“Microsoft.XMLHTTP”);// this is the XMLHttpRequest object
    xmlhttp.open(“GET”,”http://www.w3schools.com/Ajax/time.asp”,!ASYNC);
    xmlhttp.send(null);
    var time = xmlhttp.responseText;
    Application.Alert( time );
    //clean up
    xmlhttp = null;

    The example in this posting may also be of use to people wanting to make web service calls from XMetaL Author. It makes a call from script rather than a web page in the resource manager.
