    How to read Xml Node in DDX process

    klmkb

      Hi All,

       

      I face problem when reading xml node with DDX process.

      (this is more a syntax problem)

       

      On a workbench process, I want insert header in a pdf file with some datas coming from Xml variable

      So I use Invoke DDX process and try to use External Data Url but without success.

      (this is ok for variable) :

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/">
          <PDF result="outDoc">
              <PDF source="inDoc">
                <Header>
                    <Right><StyledText><p><String url="process:///process_data/in_xml?serialize(in_xml/a/b)"/></p></StyledText></Right>
                </Header>         
              </PDF>
          </PDF>
      </DDX>

       

      I tried different thing, without success :

           <String url="process:///process_data/in_xml/a/b)"/>

           <String url="process:///process_data/in_xml?serialize(in_xml/a/b)

           ...

       

      Somebody could help me ?

       

      Thank you.

          I resolve a part of my problem with the current syntax:

          <String url="process:///?serialize(/process_data/in_xml/a/b)"/>

           

          Xml file is :

          ...

          <a>
              <b>Test b</b>
              <c>Test c</c>
          </a>

           

          so the 'full' ddx file :

           

          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
          <DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/">
              <PDF result="outDoc">
                  <PDF source="inDoc">
                    <Header>
                        <Right><StyledText><p color="red" font-size="9pt" font-family="Arial" ><String url="process:///?serialize(/process_data/in_xml/a/b)"/></p></StyledText></Right>
                    </Header>         
                  </PDF>       
              </PDF>
          </DDX>

           

          But the result is "<b>Test b</b>" and not just "Test b"

          any idea ?

            If this can help somebody :

             

            <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
            <DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/">
                <PDF result="outDoc">
                    <PDF source="inDoc">
                      <Header>
                          <Right><StyledText><p><String url="process:///?substring-before(substring-after(serialize(/process_data/in_xml/a/b),'&g t;'),'&lt;')"/></p></StyledText></Right>
                      </Header>         
                    </PDF>       
                </PDF>
            </DDX>

             

            Is there easiest way ?
