Using Transformers in Serialization Anchors

Using Transformers in Serialization Anchors

You can use transformers in serialization anchors that write to the output document, such as
ContentSerializer
. The transformers modify the data before the serializer writes it to the document.
For example, a
ContentSerializer
might write the content of a data holder called
DoctorName
to an output document. You might configure the
ContentSerializer
with an
AddString
transformer that adds the prefix
"Dr. "
to the content. Suppose the XML input has the following form:
<DoctorName>Albert Schweitzer</DoctorName>
The transformer modifies the content, resulting in the following output:
Dr. Albert Schweitzer
You can add transformers to the
default_transformers
property of a serializer. The transformers that you add here run in all the
ContentSerializer
serialization anchors before they write to the output document.
