Hello,
I am interested in customizing the WTP XML Editor, especially the Treetable. Could you tell me if it can be easily extended. Here are some of the things, i would like to modify:
1) base on a preference, not display the attributes in the treetable, but display them only in the property view.
2) Modify the popup menu so that i do not display all possibilities like Edit Namespace, Add DTD info, ...
3) Customize the propertie view to have a better look and feel
4) implement a control allowinf to set the key/keyref defined in the XSD
5) extend the validation

Thank you
Philippe

It sounds like you are trying to build a custom editor for a specific XML file type. Rather than approaching this by trying to customize the XML editor's generic tree view (not a usecase it was designed for), take a look at Sapphire, which make it easy to build sophisticated form editors on top of WTP's XML editor.
