 XML connections

If you want to display data on your content, which can be altered any time, but you do not want to edit your content each time the data changes, you can use XML data binding.

 

You can connect an XML and use its data by following this guide:

 

 

On the Super Admin page, under the Datasources menu, add a new datasource.
 

 

Choose your datasource a name, which will be displayed in the Datapicker.

Select the client whom contents you want your datasource to use on.

Add the XML file’s URL.

Save your datasource.

 

 

You can use data binding on elements where there is an option for Datapicker under the Data tab. Elements with data binding option:

Also, all the dynamic charts can only used with data binding.

 

 For the example, I chose the List Dynamic chart element.

 

In the data picker, select your datasource.

After the selection, the column names will be displayed.
Choose the columns you want to display on your content.

You can even set the columns’ width (in pixel), text and background color, the label (the column’s name),
alignment and the type of data, which can be Text or Image.

The columns can be dragged up and down. This way you can set the order the columns will be shown.

Now, you can start formatting your content to your own liking.
