XML Export is the means to export of the object configuration in the form of XML file.
XML Export can be started:
- from D2000 CNF
- choose the item Export to ... from the popup menu activated over the list of objects
- click on the button Object dependency from the tool bar in the dialog box
- choose the item XML Export of complete configuration from Object menu
- from process D2000 Event Handler by ESL function %XML_ExportD2ObjToDocument
XML Export saves the object configuration into XML files with the name <object_name>.xml. Also the binary files with the bin suffix are created for some objects. They contains an additional data of objects. These files are necessary for XML Import. More detail information on binary data of XML file is mentioned in a description of properties of SDT_RAW_DATA type.
The result of XML Export is influenced by the setting of export parameters:
|Parameter||Export from processes||ESL function||XML Export of complete configuration|
|WITH_CHILD||XML settings (dialog box).||always OFF||OFF|
|FILE_TIME||OFF or set||ON|

|EXP_LOGS||OFF or set||OFF|
|NORM_D2REC||OFF or set||OFF|
|NULL_PAMED||OFF or set||OFF|
