Visual-XSL (VisualXSL)

Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) is a graphical-based application for designing XSL style sheets primarily used as an overlay for forms. With an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface, Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) does all the hard work for you. Behind the scenes, it is creating an XSL style sheet for use with RenderX XEP/XEPWin. It is an ideal product for high-performance form-based print or dynamic, on-the-fly form overlay. Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) can be used to create and deliver any of the 1000s of forms used in your business.

VisualXSL comes bundled with XEPWin. XEPWin supports output of PDF, PDF/X, PDF/A, PostScript and our own XML output capabilities. Additional output modules are available as add-ons to the core product. These include AFP, Microsoft XPS, PDF Forms, HTML and SVG formats.

User Guide



Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) allows you to import a PDF or image as a background source. This could be a form or template information for such applications as a direct marketing campaign. It does not matter where or what tool is used to create the form, as long as it is an image supported by XEP/XEPWin including a PDF generated in another tool. The user can associate a representative data structure in XML with this background and then drag and drop data directly with the Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) layout designer.

Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) generates a specific XSL style sheet to render the overlay. It supports print on pre-printed forms (no background) or insertion of the background image into the output document. With the use of the XEP/XEPWin rendering engine to process the resulting XSL, you can have a complete solution for high speed generation of PDF and PostScript documents and forms.

Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) supports many forms-based elements including dynamic text, check marks, dynamic images, and barcodes. It also has wizards for easily creating address labels and mixing static text with dynamic content into paragraph blocks. All elements can be easily placed onto the page layout with their location precisely controlled.

Textual content can be styled using Windows-based wizards which allow the user to define font face, size, style, color, weight and foreground color. You can also determine whole text box formatting properties including horizontal and vertical alignment.

Conditional Rendering

Every data field has properties that can be set to determine rendering under certain conditions. This allows for conditional formatting — including and excluding content as well as other logic operations. Logic can be based on element existence, element content as well as the element attributes.

Almost all XPath expressions are created automatically when dragging and dropping XML nodes to the layout designer. You can also create or edit them manually. The application validates all XPath expressions and offers to modify an incorrect expression.

Docking Windows

Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) supports the use of a docking window interface. You can dock and undock windows to create an optimal work configuration, with design in one window and preview in another.

Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) has an option to generate fillable PDF form for documents with PDF background. To create PDF form you should have designed a valid project. The produced PDF form will look similar to project preview and will have fillable textboxes and checkboxes generated from corresponding fields.

Ultimately, Visual-XSL (VisualXSL)-created XSLs can be used server side with RenderX XEP/XEPWin to merge form data onto the background. This makes server-side form filling easy and stamping the data onto the background without any specialized form-filling software. This could be done in batch operations to generate such things as mailings or can be done dynamically, to deliver a filled form back to the end user.

There is also a companion web site with additional technical materials and demos at
