Editing XML Files

Weather Message 3.0 uses xml files to store alarm and other settings. As version 3.0 continues to evolve, more of the setup files will transistion from standard text files to xml files.

A number of users have asked me about editing them manually. Yes - they can still be edited with notepad or any text editor. When using a text editor, you have to be careful to maintain the correct xml syntax. Failure to use the correct syntax can cause the xml file to not load properly.

If you want to edit the xml files in Weather Message, I suggest that you use a program designed for that purpose. There are a number of freeware editors available. I have used XML Viewer by Mindfusion. Here is a link http://www.mindfusion.org/product1.html
