How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Extend the XPath Wizard to support functions

You recommend that we always use the XPath Wizard to create tags, but as soon as we want to use anything other than the most simple XPath expression, we have no choice but to write it by hand.

Extending the XPath wizard to support standard XPath functions (e.g. count, addition, etc) would allow us to always use it to construct our tags.

In our conversation with Ryan yesterday he recommended that we always use the XPath Wizard for creating tags. Is there any plan to extend the wizard to support XPath functions, e.g. count, addition, etc? As it stands, there is no way to use these in a tag other than to write the XPath by hand.

    Windward is updating is XPath library in Version 14 to move from XPath 1.0 to XPath 2.0 support which will allow the use of additional XPath functions. Version 14 is due for release near the end of February 2015.

    Thanks for submitting your idea and stay tuned for the Version 14 release.
