  • 1.  XPath How To Insert After First Element

    Posted May 09, 2017 06:18 AM



    I'm trying to do two XML Element inserts in a row.

    First shall insert as "First Child", second shall insert as "After First Child".

    The result does not meet my expectations. See below for screenshots and explanation.



    First Action 



    Looks fine so far. Element <bla> is inserted as First Child element.


    Second Action:

    XML element contains a Line Break in this case:






    This is where I'm having a different expectation.
    After the first action the "First Child" element is "<bla>".

    So inserting "After First Child" should insert <Insert2> after (below) element <bla>.


    My Expectation would be this result:


    Do I get somehting wrong here or is this not working as it should?


    Thanks & Best regards,

    Hi Max


    To me it looks like this is not working as expected , i did do a quick test and got the same result when

    there is only 1 child , if you have two childs it works fine.

    A workaround for this could be to use the lastchild option .

    Any way i would suggest to raise a support case
