XMLRecords is an extension that allows you to convert OutSystems Records and RecordLists into XML and vice-versa.

Features List

1. RecordToXml: Allows you to convert a single record into structured XML.

2. RecordListToXml: Allows you to convert a record list into structured XML.

3. XmlToRecordList: Allows you to parse XML and fill out a RecordList.

Records composed of multiple structures are not supported. 

String data is converted to XML safe formats (& -> &...)

Option fields

All functions allow you to specify options for the fields such as:

 - the name that the attribute or record will get on the XML;

 - if a recordlist is included as a sequence or as a child record with an inner sequence;

 - if empty values should be discarded;

 - the nullable value for a field;

 - the namespace for a given structure/record type;

System Requirements and Limitations

- Latest version is for OutSystems 11; 

- Older versions available for previous platform versions; 

Notice:This component takes advantage of private and undocumented Platform APIs, which can change without notice. As a result, this component may unexpectedly break as the Platform is upgraded. We advise proper testing to ensure that your applications continue to work as expected when upgrading/patching the Platform.
