Changing the type of an element
Change the type of an element, for example from integer to float.
Create or open a DFDL schema file. See DFDL schema editor for a description of the DFDL schema editor.
Before you begin
- In the Outline view, select the parent of the element that
you want to change. For example, to change a local element in a message, select the parent message.
- In the editor area, click the Type property
of the object, and select the appropriate type from the list.
- Click Anonymous to define a new local complex type.
- Click Browse to open a Type Selection window. From here, if the type that you require is not found, you can add a reference to another schema.
