Description

FileURI

The URI of the file to open. This URI is returned by the GrooveFilesBase64.Read operation in the LaunchURL element.

ExecuteVerb

xs:string

The verb to use when launching the file. Each registered file type has a set of valid verbs, such as "edit", "new" "open", and "print". If this element is an empty string, the default is the default action for the file type extension, which is typically "open".

AutoSave

If true, the Files tool monitors whether the temporary copy of the file is modified while it is open, and, if it is modified, replaces the original file with the modified one.

Output Message Header

GrooveResponseHeader specifies the Response key.
