Quick FOSI Question

Quick FOSI Question

We haven't had to change our FOSI in years (aside from slight
modifications) so I'm a bit rusty.

I'm hoping someone might be able to answer this quick question before
I inevitably figure it out.

Given two elements:
<problem id="p_123"><para>This is some
text</para><some-other-elements-here/></problem>
and
<problemref linkend="p_123">

I would like to have the para text from the ID node shown after the
problemref element in Arbortext.

I setup my fosi as follows:

<e-i-c gi="problem">
<charlist charsubsetref="block">
<indent leftind="@12pt" firstln="*"></charlist>
<att>
<specval attname="id" attloc="problem" attval="#ANY">
<charsubset>
<savetext textid="xref-formatted.txt"&lt;br"/>conrule="<problem.fmt>,#CONTENT,</problem.fmt>" xrefidtag="problem">
</charsubset>
</att>
</e-i-c>

<e-i-c gi="problemref">
<charlist inherit="1" charsubsetref="inline"></charlist>
<att>
<specval attname="linkend" attloc="problemref" attval="#ANY">
<charsubset>
<usetext source="#XREF(linkend,xref-formatted.txt)"></usetext>
</charsubset>
</att>
</e-i-c>

Now, the issue I'm having is that #CONTENT gives me all text within
the problem, but I really only want the text within the para. Is
there a simple way to just pull the <para> text?

Thanks in advance,
keith

Give the para tag an id. The xref out to it. You may have to have two xrefs but it should work.

That's certainly an option, but it might be more tricky since we use
<para> tags all over our content, and there would have to be some ACL
overhead to strip the IDs if copied/pasted into a different context.

As the model works today, when the user tries to insert a <problemref>
tag, they are presented with a dialog that shows all available
problems.

I was hoping there might be more of an xpath-like way to extract just
the content I need.

Keith,

In your <e-i-c> I'd change the 'gi' from "problem" to "para" and then add a 'context' of "problem". That should gather the text of the paragraph contained in the problem

Aah, perfect!

I stare at "e-i-c" all day, and seldom think to expand it out to
"Element in Context", which does exactly what I need.

Thanks

Good eye Lynn

Sindy,

Thanks.

I'll take FOSI to FO ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. 😄
