I’ve got another conceptual poster for download. This one deals with document parsers, and how Windows SharePoint Services uses them to promote and demote document properties.
The poster gives a quick (but stylish) overview of:
· How WSS uses your custom parser to promote and demote document properties for documents of your custom file type.
· How the built-in XML parser promotes and demotes document properties for XML files.
· What built-in parsers are included in WSS for specific file types.
Document parsers are something I’m hoping to have a lot more to say about soon. I’m putting the finishing touches on some topics for the WSS SDK dealing with them. Once I get those topics finished, I’ll post some excerpts here. Stay tuned.
And this time around, I’m saving the poster as an attachment to this post. Not that the fine people at OfficeZealot aren’t wonderful for hosting my other posters, but I hate to have to bug them all the time. And I’m curious to see if the attachment functionality actually works. The poster should be listed as an attachment at the end of this post. Click to download it. If you have any problems, please leave me a message in the comments section so I know things aren’t working out.
