XSLT autocomplete

Post by dsxsfs » Thu Jan 12, 2017 3:40 pm


I'm editing an XSL file which is linked with an XML file through a scenario.

The autocomplete doesn't seem to work correctly. When I try to add an <xsl:for-each> or <xsl:value-of> element, the autocomplete will suggest the root element from the XML document, but no deeper elements when I hit the 'slash' key.

Furthermore, when I'm in a for-each loop, drag a node from the XSLT/XQuery input window to the editor and select 'value-of', it selects the absolute path of the node, rather than the path relative to the context node.

Is there any way to fix this?

What version and build of Oxygen are you using (Help > About)?

Check the namespaces from the XML file (especially second level elements). Oxygen's content completion (autocomplete) will not propose elements if they are from a namespace for which there is no declaration in the XSL. Declare the namespaces in the XSL, if that's the case.

If possible, please send us a pair of XML+XSL files and the scenario where you see the problem.
Send them to our support email address, support@oxygenxml.com.
