XPath Contains

Last update: Download PDF Edit

1 Overview

The contains() function tests whether a string attribute contains a specific string (case-insensitive) as a sub-string.

2 Example

This query returns all the customers from which the name contains the string an:

//Sales.Customer[contains(Name, 'an')]

Customers with the name “Andy” or “Jan” will be returned, for example, because “an” is part of those names.
