Since the inception of XML, many developers have wondered why we need XML…
Displaying the News Items for a Particular Syndication Feed
The next task that faces us is creating the DisplayNewsItems.aspx Web page. This page should display the titles of the news items in the selected syndication feed as hyperlinks such that when the hyperlink is clicked the description of the news item is shown in the bottom right frame. This task presents us with two primary challenges:
Please note – Data Islands are exclusive to Internet Explorer!
This month we start a two part series on Data Islands. Part 1 explores how we can use Data Islands to embed XML and XSLT into a browser, and manipulate that data using DHTML. Part 2 will illustrate Data Islands and Data Binding, and how to update data from the browser with Web Services and XMLHTTP.
This article is another illustration of why using PHP with XSL to transform XML data to various presentation layers is beneficial. With that being said this article will demonstrate how to present the same data to several different wireless technologies using PHP and XSL, instead of an article completely focused on PHP and XSL.
Storing and displaying data is a common and essential task, if you are working with Applications. It doesn’t matter whether you are working with desktop Applications or WebApplications.
If you’re having trouble converting data to and from XML format, or if your site has accessibility issues, Dave Pawson is the fellow to ask. He’ll answer your questions, or find someone who can.
All the hype that once surrounded XML is finally starting to die down, and developers are really beginning to harness the power and flexibility of the language.
In the first article in this series I presented a brief introduction to the use of XSL as a means to display XML in HTML browsers. Before continuing, I’d like to clear up a few points which I believe may have been confusing, largely due to a lack of rigorous clarity on my part.
When you have to work with HTML controls in a web-based application, 100% of which are populated and whose properties are set via dynamically-generated XSL transformations at runtime, you get to be pretty inventive. And one of the first things you learn is how NOT to “reinvent the wheel”. That is to say, if there is an example somewhere or some existing code that you can borrow from or re-use, there is “no shame and no blame”.
