Sheet references

If Data Structures are arranged in a collection of sheets you can choose to store one or more sheets externally in separate files. This is done by setting the value of the <[sheet ident]> tag to a relative file reference instead of being a definition of the <ROOT> element.

Example

Taking the Data Structure from the previous example we could rearrange it in separate files:

Main Data Structure:

<T3DataStructure>
  <sheets>
        <sDEF>fileadmin/sheets/default_sheet.xml</sDEF>
    <s_welcome>fileadmin/sheets/welcome_sheet.xml</s_welcome>
  </sheets>
</T3DataStructure>

EXT:news/Configuration/FlexForms/Sheets/Default.xml:

<T3DataStructure>
             <ROOT>
                     <TCEforms>
                             <sheetTitle>LLL:EXT:felogin/locallang_db.xml:tt_content.pi_flexform.sheet_general</sheetTitle>
                     </TCEforms>
                     <type>array</type>
                     <el>
                             <showForgotPassword>
                                     <TCEforms>
                                             <label>LLL:EXT:felogin/locallang_db.xml:tt_content.pi_flexform.show_forgot_password</label>
                                             <config>
                                                     <type>check</type>
                                                     <items type="array">
                                                             <numIndex index="1" type="array">
                                                                     <numIndex index="0">LLL:EXT:lang/locallang_core.xml:labels.enabled</numIndex>
                                                                     <numIndex index="1">1</numIndex>
                                                             </numIndex>
                                                     </items>

                             <showPermaLogin>
                                     <TCEforms>

                                             <config>

                                                                     <numIndex index="1">1</numIndex>
                                                             </numIndex>
                                                     </items>
                                             </config>
                                     </TCEforms>
                             </showPermaLogin>
                             ...
                     </el>
             </ROOT>
</T3DataStructure>

and so on for the two other sheets.
