resolveExternals Property (Compact 2013)

3/26/2014

Indicates whether external definitions, resolvable namespaces, document type definition (DTD) external subsets, and external entity references, are to be resolved at parse time, independent of validation.


boolValue = oXMLDOMDocument.resolveExternals;
objXMLDOMDocument.resolveExternals = boolVal;
HRESULT get_resolveExternals(
  VARIANT_BOOL* isResolving
);
HRESULT put_resolveExternals(
  VARIANT_BOOL isResolving
);

Script

None.

C/C++

isResolving

[out, retval][in] True if external definitions are to be resolved at parse time; False otherwise. The default is True.

Script

Boolean. True if external definitions are to be resolved at parse time; False otherwise. The default is True.

C/C++

S_OK

Value returned if successful.

E_INVALIDARG (for get_resolveExternals only)

Value returned if isResolving is Null.

When isResolving is True, external definitions are resolved at parse time. This allows default attributes and data types to be defined on elements from the schema and allows use of the DTD as a file inclusion mechanism.

This setting is independent of whether validation is to be performed, as indicated by the value of the validateOnParse Property. If externals cannot be resolved during validation, a validation error occurs. When the value of isResolving is False, externals are not resolved and validation is not performed.

A resolvable namespace is indicated by a namespace Universal Resource Identifier (URI) that begins with "x-schema:" as its prefix.

The default setting is True.
