AdditionalInputPort

AdditionalInputPort

The
AdditionalInputPort
port defines an additional input port.
The following table describes the properties of the
AdditionalInputPort
port:
Property
Description
code_page
Determines the input encoding for the port. When no value is set, the
AdditionalInputPort
uses the input encoding defined in the Data Processor transformation settings. Default is blank.
data_holder
Defines a data holder where the port stores the content of the input document. Use the same data holder in
Parser
source
Locator
data_holder
property of the associated secondary Parser, Mapper, or Serializer.
disabled
Determines whether the Script ignores the component and all of the child components. Use this property to test, debug, and modify a Script. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. The Script ignores the component.
  • Cleared. The Script applies the component.
The default is cleared.
encode_as_xml
Determines whether special characters are converted to XML entities. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. Special characters are converted to XML entities.
  • Cleared. Special characters are not converted.
The
encode_as_xml
property is a child of the
input_encoding
property when it is set to PortEncoding. Default is cleared.
example_source
Defines the location of a source to process during testing. You can choose one of the following options:
  • LocalFile. Defines a file on the local computer.
  • Text. Defines a string.
  • URL. Defines the URL of a web page.
Do not define a document processor under the
AdditionalInputPort
example_source
pre_processor
property. Define it under
AdditionalInputPort
pre_processor
.
input_encoding
Defines the encoding of the input.
PortEncoding
Defines custom settings for the additional input. The
PortEncoding
property has the following options:
  • code_page
  • encode_as_xml
pre_processor
Defines the name of a document processor to apply to the input before the document processor defined under
RunParser
pre_processor
. For more information, see Document Processor Component Reference.
Do not define a document processor under the
AdditionalInputPort
example_source
pre_processor
property. Define it under
AdditionalInputPort
pre_processor
.
Define the
AdditionalInputPort
port at the global level of the Script and assign it a name.
