Code Inspection: Implicit type conversion
Reports an implicit conversion among the predefined XPath-types
NODESET. Helps to write XSLT scripts that are more expressive about types and prevents subtle bugs:
<xsl:if test="foo" /> is not the same as
<xsl:if test="string(foo)" />
The first test checks whether the element "foo" exists (
count(foo) > 0); the latter one however is only true if the element actually contains any text (
string-length(foo) > 0). Suggests making the type conversion more explicit.
Use the controls below to customize the inspection.
Enable or disable implicit conversions between certain types
Always report explicit conversions that do not result in the actually expected type, for example,
<xsl:if test="number(foo)" />
Ignore conversion from
BOOLEANby using the
string()function as a shortcut for writing
string-length() > 0.
