cauchy keSubject: last node in preceding-sibling
Author: cauchy ke

Hi, I use this to search the receding-sibling node:
preceding-sibling::Macro[@name='file' and last()]/family/firstname

but the problem is it will return all the preceding sibling and position on the first node. What I want is the last node, which means the node very close the self.

Any idea?
Thanks a lot!

Hi,
if you want the closest node to the context node you should not use last(), but position()=1 (preceding-sibling is a reverse axis.
But placing the check in "and" with a test for an attribute value will match only if the previous node is a match; if you want to select the closest match, you will have to split the predicate in two

preceding-sibling::Macro[@name='file'][1]/family/firstname

(the first predicate will create a list of matching nodes, and the [1] will pick the closest)

Hope this helps,
Alberto

So, any idea on this type of xpath? I need the preceding-sibling for lu_Group

/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/tns:Get_ContactFlagsResponse/tns:Get_ContactFlagsResult/NewDataSet/Areas_of_Interest

Any help is appreciated
