XPath Functions

Node-set number last() = This function returns a number equal to the context size from the expression evaluation context
number position() = This function returns a number equal to the context position from the expression evaluation context.
number count(node-set) = This function returns the number of nodes in the argument node-set.
string local-name(node-set?) = Returns the local part of the expanded-name of the node in the argument node-set that is first in document order.
string name(node-set?) = Returns a string containing a QName representing the expanded-name of the node in the argument node-set that is first in document order.
node-set instance(string) = This function allows access to instance data.
node-set current() = Returns the context node used to initialize the evaluation of the containing XPath expression.
Boolean boolean boolean(object) = A object is converted to a boolean.
boolean not(boolean) = Returns true if its argument is false, and false otherwise.
boolean true() = Returns false
boolean false() = Returns true
boolean boolean-from-string() = Returns true if the required parameter string is "true" or "1", else returns false
boolean if(condition, onTrue, onFalse) = Function if evaluates the first parameter as boolean, returning the second parameter when true, otherwise the third parameter.
Number number number(object?) = The function converts its argument to a number.
number sum(node-set) = Returns the sum, for each node in the argument node-set, of the result of converting the string-values of the node to a number.
number floor(number) = Returns the largest (closest to positive infinity) number that is not greater than the argument and that is an integer.
number ceiling(number) = Returns the smallest (closest to negative infinity) number that is not less than the argument and that is an integer.
number round(number) = Returns the number that is closest to the argument and that is an integer
node-set avg(node-set) = Returns the arithmetic average of the result of converting the string-values of each node in the argument node-set to a number.
number min(node-set) = Returns the minimum value of the result of converting the string-values of each node in argument node-set to a number.
number max(node-set) = Returns the maximum value of the result of converting the string-values of each node in argument node-set to a number.
number count-non-empty(node-set) = Function count-non-empty returns the number of non-empty nodes in argument node-set
String string string(object?) = This function converts an object to a string.
string concat(string, string, string*) = Returns the concatenation of its arguments
boolean starts-with(string, string) = Returns true if the first argument string starts with the second argument string
boolean contains(string, string) = Returns true if the first argument string contains the second argument string.
string substring-before(string, string) = Returns the substring of the first argument string that precedes the first occurrence of the second argument string in the first argument string.
string substring-after(string, string) = Returns the substring of the first argument string that follows the first occurrence of the second argument string in the first argument string.
string substring(string, number, number?) = Returns the substring of the first argument starting at the position specified in the second argument with length specified in the third argument.
number string-length(string?) = Returns the number of characters in the string.
string normalize-space(string?) = Returns the argument string with whitespace normalized.
string translate(string, string, string) = Returns the first argument string with occurrences of characters in the second argument string replaced by the character at the corresponding position in the third argument string.
Others string now(node-set) = Returns the current system date and time as a string value in the canonical XML Schema xsd:dateTime format.
boolean is-valid(node-set) = Returns true when all nodes in noseset are valid index, nodeindex
