SV: empty string parsed as float?
Ah, I totally forgot, sorry! Anyway, thanks for the answer. /Gabriel -----Ursprungligt meddelande----- Fren: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Skickat: den 2 juni 2005 03:54 Till: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Dmne: RE: empty string parsed as float? This is an XML Schema question not an XSLT question! You can define the type of the element as a list data type that allows a list of floats with minOccurs=0 and maxOccurs=1. Alternatively you could define it as a union data type that's the union of a float and a zero-length string. You could also define the type as "nillable", but then you would have to flag an empty element with xsi:nil="true" > -----Original Message----- > From: Gabriel K [mailto:gabriel.klappenbach@xxxxxxxxxxxx] > Sent: 01 June 2005 21:09 > To: XSL-list > Subject: empty string parsed as float? > > I have a schema which defines an element with type float (or > anything other > than string for that matter). > The xml file validated has the element, but it's empty. > So the parser tells me it can't parse the value '' as a float. > > When I wrote the schema I thought that if you leave the > element empty, it > would pass validation, and if you don't leave it empty, it > MUST be a float > to pass validation. > I don't want the element to have the type string or token, I > want float.
