Evaluation of a string containing a valid XPath Patter
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to retrieve a node set by evaluating a global stylesheet parameter which contains a valid XPath Expression. Example <xsl:stylesheet ...> <xsl:param name="$gXPath"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:value-of select="$gXPath"/> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> The result would be the string value of $gXPath, but I would need the node set referred to by $gXPath, something like eval-xpath-expr($gXPath) or else would be great, any ideas? I already came to the point writing something parser-like, parsing the expression contained by $gXPath and setting up variables to retrieve the nodes in question, but this is too much overhead, since a lot of nodes have to be processed every time the stylesheet is invoked. Is there a short hand way to do this? I don't want to / cannot use the transformNode method of the Microsoft XMLDOM, since I do need the whole xml document.
