Exporting a map source file

About this task

Exporting a map source file enables you to store map definitions in XML format in a repository directory. The resulting XML file contains information on map settings, card settings, and map rules.

The Map > Export command converts a map source file definition from the internal map format to the XML document form.

To export a map source file:


  1. From the Extender Navigator view, select the map source file you would like to export.

    The active map source file name appears in the title bar.

  2. From the Map menu, select Export to XML.

    The Export Map(s) to an XML file dialog box is displayed with the active map source filename in the File name field.

  3. Click Save. The resulting mapname.xml file can be opened by either selecting it from the XML Files folder in the Extender Navigator view, or in a browser.
