Importing XForms Model files

You can import XForms Model files into Designer. Each time you import an XForms Model file, the File Import Options dialog box appears.

  1. Select File > Open.

  2. In the Files Of Type list, select XForms Model.

  3. Navigate to the file to open, select the file, and click Open.

  4. (Optional) To embed a schema within the output XDP file if a schema is set for the XForms document, select Embed Schemas Inline.

  5. (Optional) In the Set Working Directory box, type the path to the folder where you want Designer to check for relative file path locations, such as instance data XML files or XML schema files, which might be included in the XForms document. If you do not specify this folder, the default working directory will be the same location as the XForm that is being imported. This directory is not where the log files or temporary instance data files are created.

  6. In the Generate log file list, select one of the following options:

    • If you do not want to generate a log file to capture conversion output messages, select Do Not Log.

    • To generate a log file in the Temp folder located in Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp (Windows XP) or Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp (Windows Vista), select \TEMP\ConvertXF.log. Each log file created is prefixed with ConvertXF and appended with a unique number (for example, ConvertXF38512.log).

  7. Click OK.

Note: Designer forms do not support an equivalent of the xforms-valid event. Any scripting associated with the xforms-valid event is not imported.
