Jim AlbrightSubject: xpath query from current location
Author: Jim Albright
Date: 08 Jan 2003 11:35 AM
Is it possible to do an XPath query and say that it is relative to the current cursor location? I could do that inside of XML Spy. There was a switch that you set to say on whole document or relative to current location.

You can do this from the tree view of the XML editor: just select the node
you want to be the current context and enter a relative query in the XPath
edit box (that is, without the leading '/')

Please make this more obvious as to how it works. Either have a popup asking for relative or from root (and that you need to be in .... view in order to use) or at least document it better. I still can't find it in documentation. I always prefer the just in time info.

Thanks for the pointer. I do appreciate the functionality.
