5.6. Other Files

A Smart Document solution is likely to contain numerous files—help files, templates, XSL transformations, document fragments, and media clips, not to mention the actual .dll, manifest file, and schema. Each of these files should be listed in the manifest; when the expansion pack is attached to the document or template, the application will check to ensure that it can locate each referenced file.

It is important to note, however, that the references to these files in the .dll must be absolute pathnames or URLs. If the Smart Document solution cannot locate a referenced file, it will just ignore it. Building in some error checking to test that the files actually exist in the designated file locations is highly recommended.
