        $config = $this->getData('config');
        if (isset($config['options'])) {
            $options = [];
            foreach ($config['options'] as $option) {
                /*Removed xml from here*/
                if($option['value'] != 'xml'){
                    $additionalParams = $this->getAdditionalParams($config, $context);
                    $option['url'] = $this->urlBuilder->getUrl($option['url'], $additionalParams);
                    $options[] = $option;
