Function get-node-id

Lambda List

get-node-id (node-or-node-set)


  • node-or-node-set -- a node-set or a single XML node

Return Value

an alphanumeric string


Generates an unique identifier for the first node node-set (or, if a node is specified, for that node).

This function is similar to the generate-id() XSLT function, but its results are unique only within its document, whereas XSLT also prepends an ID designating the document.
