Here's some background info:

Using XDSInput

  1. Select the Type of XDS event you want to create. "add, delete, ..."
  2. Set values for the attributes of the event.
  3. Click "Run" to generate the event.
  • The event should show in the text box, as well as the event written to a file named "[event].xml."
  • For an "add" event the file created would be add.xml.
  • Note: If you click "Run" nothing happens, be sure to verify that the "Input Directory" is a valid path. The default directory is "C:\XML\input".
