Hidden Parameters

upCast has some hidden parameters for very special use cases, so we did not provide a user interface element for it to not confuse the regular user. However, when accessing functionality using the API or via BCF files for very special situations, you may find one or another option useful. These are documented not in the manual since new ones might get introduced in interim releases and we don't like the idea of outdated documentation hogging up your valuable time (and hard disk).

View the current Hidden Parameter documentation.

Additional Documentation

Additional documentation for the DocBook 4.2 export filter included with upCast 5.0 can be found here.


For some of the most commonly asked questions (or the fictitous ones we invented during lunch break) we have already answers available. Why does my XML document lack a stylesheet reference? Why does upCast insist on an internet connection when validating my local XML instances?
