string-length Function

Returns the number of characters in the string.


          number string-length(string)

If an argument is not of type string, it is first converted to a string using the string() function and then the result of that conversion is evaluated.

CautionCaution:
Stringconversions for node sets that are passed as arguments to this function may yield unexpected results. For more information, see string Function.

This function is case-sensitive.

If the argument is omitted, it returns the number of characters in the string-value of the context node.

The following function call returns 4:

string-length("abcd")

The following function call returns 5:

string-length("ab cd")
