xdmp:node-kind

xdmp:node-kind(
   $node as node()
) as xs:string

Summary

Returns an xs:string representing the node's kind: either "document", "element", "attribute", "text", "namespace", "processing-instruction", "binary", or "comment".

The fn:node-kind builtin was dropped from the final XQuery 1.0 spec. This is the equivalent function in the xdmp: namespace carried over for MarkLogic 1.0 dialects.

Parameters
$node The node whose kind is to be returned.

Example

let $x := <hello><goodbye>1</goodbye></hello>
return
xdmp:node-kind($x/node())

=> element
