Use this method in activities to parse an XML document contained in the value of a property and add them to the step page. This method locates and executes a Parse XML rule ( Rule-Parse-XML rule type) and parses the XML document text into values for multiple other properties.
The system uses the class of the step page as the Applies To key part of the desired Parse XML rule. (It determines this class from the Pages & Classes information on the Activity form.)
This method has three required parameters:
|NameSpace||Enter a value that is the second key part of a Parse XML rule.|
Enter a value that is the third key part of a Parse XML rule.
If left blank, the parsed results will not be formatted correctly.
Identify a property reference that contains a well formed XML document as its
The system determines the class of the page identified in the Step Page column using the Pages & Classes information for the activity (If the Step Page field is blank, it uses the class that is the Applies To key part of the activity, the class of the primary page). The system assembles the key of a Parse XML rule from that class, the NameSpace parameter, and the ElementName parameter.
Finally, it executes the Parse XML rule in the current context. This parses the input XML document (the value of the property referenced in the SourceProperty parameter) into other property values and adds these to the step page.
