) as cts:query


Parses a query string

query The query string. For details, see Creating a Query From Search Text With cts:parse in the Search Developer's Guide.
bindings Bindings for mapping x:y parts of the query string. The map key can be either a simple string with no embedded spaces or punctuation or the empty string. The empty string defines the parsing of untagged words. For details, see Binding a Tag to a Reference, Field, or Query Generator in the Search Developer's Guide.

The map value for the label can be:

A reference to the tag in the query corresponds to a query against the indicated index, which constructs a query.

function ($operator as xs:string, $values as xs:string*, $options as xs:string*) as cts:query?
