Please document xml elements and attributes
Please document, in one easily updated located, all xml elements and attributes that can be used in ParaView. I believe these xml keywords are used in plugins for filters, readers, writers, etc. Should this go into The ParaView Guide?

Unfortunately, there is no one place that documents all the XML elements and attributes. There is some documentation on property attributes in , but I'm not sure this is an exhaustive list. Your user is doing one of the most effective things already, looking for desired functionality in an existing source/filter and looking at how it is done in the .xml files.
Digging deeper, one can view the code in the methods ReadXMLAttributes in the various vtkSM*Proxy classes in ParaView, e.g., vtkSMProxy::ReadXMLAttributes ., to understand which attributes are available in different proxies.
Hope that helps, Cory

Hi to all,
I have a user that use intensively xml files to deploy and customise his python programmable filters. He would like to know if there is a list with all the xml keyword available (for filters, readers,writers). He uses the files in "./ParaViewCore/ServerManager/SMApplication/Resources/*.xml" for inspiration but not actually sure about the potential and limits of the xml customization.
for info: We use also the wiki
_to_the_Filters_Menu) for inspiration
