Re: FO Initial Page Sequence Question
In our XML we have a node that looks like this,
I'm assuming, though, that that is in the middle of your document and not the entire document.
We want to be able to use that value as the initial page number in the style sheet fo. I have tried using
Because you are asking for the document element of your source named "startPage". The use of the "/" jumps the XPath expression to the root node, therefore it is looking at your document element and expecting it to be named "startPage".
My questions is how can i get the value contained in the startPage node into the initial-page-number?
If the element <startPage> is a child of the current node when you are creating the page sequence, then just use select="startPage", since the omission of an axis is an abbreviation for "child::".
The error message keeps telling me that these two things are invalid values for initial-page-number.
It would if your document element isn't "startPage".
I hope this helps.
