We have a lot of XF Designer templates that has condtional blocks and various rules. Now we are looking for a way to document this.

Would it be possible to use XF Designer to add "comments" that are not shown in normal rendering, but in some way can be shown/extracted later? Maybe like javadoc, but for XF Designer temlates...

I know this is an old post, but hopefully this may help someone
 
When I wanted to do something like that I do this.  Create a template that formats the annotation (note the condition as to whether to render the annotation or not)
 
<xsl:template name="hcannotate">
 <xsl:param name="annotation.type"/>
 <xsl:param name="VARannotationText"/>
 <xsl:if test="/forrendering/alltemplates/stylesmode/text() = 'true'">
  <fo:block-container position="absolute" text-align="right" z-index="10" left="30mm" width="90%" height="auto">
   <fo:block color="red" font="8pt"><xsl:value-of select="$annotation.type"/>:<xsl:value-of select="$VARannotationText"/></fo:block>
  </fo:block-container>
 </xsl:if>
 
Then call it like this
 
              <xsl:call-template name="hcannotate">
               <xsl:with-param name="annotation.type" select="'style'"/>
               <xsl:with-param name="VARannotationText" select="'bodytext3'"/>
              </xsl:call-template>
</xsl:template>
 
So if I set /forrendering/alltemplates/stylesmode/text() to true I get lots of red text in my PDF, if I set it to false nothing appears.
 
It worked pretty well

Hi eivindan,

I'm afraid is not possible, but we can implement it as custom development. If you are interested please send us an email to support@ecrion.com
