Retrieve External String XML Data as Object
Where custom:GetData() basically returns some XML:
return( "<root><node>some text</node></root>" );
I have tried:
<xsl:variable name="extdata" select="msxsl:node-set( custom:GetData())" /> <xsl:value-of select="$extdata/root/node/text()" />
which gives 'cannot convert the operand to result tree fragment'.
I have also tried:
<xsl:variable name="extdata" select="document( custom:GetData())" /> <xsl:value-of select="$extdata/root/node/text()" />
Which gives no output. Do I have to make the data URL-accessible, or how can I get this XML into my XSLT as an object instead of a string? Should I convert the string to some other type of object before returning it to the XSL? Of course I would prefer to avoid extensions if possible. Hopefully there is something like document() that works on strings instead of URLs?
