Example

The following example demonstrates how to set EditLive! to prompt the user with style import options every time a Microsoft Excel import is detected.

<editLive>
     ...
     <excelImport styleOption="user_prompt" />
     ...
</editLive> 

Remarks

The <excelImport> element can appear only once within the <editLive> element.

If the <excelImport> element is to be left blank then the element must be a complete tag; it cannot contain a tag body. Therefore the tag must be closed in the same line. It should appear as below:

<excelImport styleOption=... />
