Can N++ view an XML String in tree format?

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I have a rather long XML string, and would like to break it down into tree form.  Can Notepad++ do this automatically?  If so, how?

      You are configuring your N++ to use external tool - in this case a program called Tidy. Its a tool created to validate and convert HTML&XML.

      Yeah, with the help of a HTMLTidy its easy.
      Under the run menu add a new command like this

      C:\utils\tidy.exe -m -i -xml -i "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)" -o "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"

      Change the path to tidy.exe to wherever its located on your machine.

        I'm sorry but I don't understand.  Am I creating a new file called "tidy.exe" and then pointing to it?  If so what is supposed to be inside the file?
