Add a comment in a XML file

Add a comment in a XML file

In several jobs, I create XML files with the tAdvancedFileOutputXML component. I want to add a comment line in each generated file with the date, the name of the job and its version just under the first line.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
<!-- generated by setupAutomat version 0.3 on the 22/07/2008 -->
<ent:Automats xmlns:ent="">

Is it possible to do it in the tAdvancedFileOutputXML component?

Re: Add a comment in a XML file

It is impossible now. I think it can be added as a new feature. Would you like to report it?
