Dominic VieiraSubject: Convert decimal to Hex.
Author: Dominic Vieira

Hi, is there a way to cast a decimal value to a hex value? For example, Decimal 177 convert to hex B1.

Hi Dominic,
there is not a built-in function to do that, but I wrote this user-defined function to do the job

declare function local:convertToHex($number as xs:integer) as xs:string
let $hexDigits:=('0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E', 'F')
if($number < 16) then
$hexDigits[$number + 1]
fn:concat(local:convertToHex($number idiv 16), local:convertToHex($number mod 16))

Hope this helps,

Hi , this is what could be used for Hex to Decimal :
declare namespace functx = "http://www.functx.com";
declare namespace op ="http://www.w3.org/2001/12/xquery-operators";

declare function functx:chars
( $arg as xs:string? ) as xs:string* {

for $ch in string-to-codepoints($arg)
return codepoints-to-string($ch)
} ;

declare function functx:index-of-string
( $arg as xs:string? ,
$substring as xs:string ) as xs:integer* {

if (contains($arg, $substring))
then (string-length(substring-before($arg, $substring))+1,
for $other in
functx:index-of-string(substring-after($arg, $substring),
$other +
string-length(substring-before($arg, $substring)) +
else ()
} ;

declare function local:power($a as xs:double, $b as xs:integer) as xs:double {
if($b < 0) then 1 div local:power($a, abs($b))
else if($b = 0) then 1
else if($b = 1) then $a
else local:power($a, $b mod 2) * local:power($a * $a, $b idiv 2)

declare function local:convertToDecimal($hexstr as xs:string , $value as xs:double) as xs:double
let $digits as xs:string:= "123456789ABCDEF"
let $length as xs:integer := fn:string-length($hexstr)
let $hexstr2 as xs:string* := functx:chars($hexstr)
let $value as xs:double := local:power( 16.00,(fn:string-length($hexstr) - 1 )) * functx:index-of-string($digits ,$hexstr2[1]) + $value

if($length = 1)
then $value

local:convertToDecimal("A15", 0.00)
