Populates an XML document with FME feature attribute values. The document is provided as a template, and the transformer will use XQuery to insert attribute values and geometry information into the template. The template may be loaded from an attribute, a file, or entered directly into the transformer parameters.

Usage Notes

  • In the XMLTemplater editor windows, the ‘Generate’ button may be used to bring up a dialog which can be used to generate an XML document which may be used as a base for an XML template. This dialog uses the same functionality as the XMLSampleGenerator transformer. For more information on how to use this dialog, refer to the XMLSampleGenerator documentation.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
