Allowing XPath expressions in list operations (and everywhere else) - Mendix Forum

Allowing XPath expressions in list operations (and everywhere else)

6

Currently Mendix uses an unintuitive mix of XPath and non-XPath expressions, with for instance “Retrieve Object” allowing selection by XPath, while the “Find” list operation does not.

It would be very useful to be able to use XPath in the “Find” and “Filter” functions, similar to the SELECT statement in SQL.

Taking it a step further, would it be possible to change all developer input fields to XPath? This would allow for more flexible and concise coding, as wel as giving this part of Mendix some (to me) much-needed consistency.

I agree, this would be very helpful
