Attribute

Description

AutoHyperLink

Optional Boolean. TRUE to surround text with <A> tags if the text appears like a hyperlink (for example, www.microsoft.com).

AutoHyperLinkNoEncoding

Optional Boolean. TRUE to surround text with <A> tags if the text appears like a hyperlink (for example, www.microsoft.com) but without HTML encoding.

AutoNewLine

Optional Boolean. TRUE to insert <BR> tags into the text stream and to replace multiple spaces with a nonbreaking space (&nbsp;).

Default

Optional Text. Renders the text assigned to this attribute if the value returned by a selection is an empty string ("").

ExpandXML

Optional Boolean. TRUE to re-pass the rendered content through the Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) interpreter, which allows CAML to render CAML.

HTMLEncode

Optional Boolean. TRUE to convert embedded characters so that they are displayed as text in the browser. In other words, characters that could be confused with HTML tags are converted to entities.

Name

Optional Text. Specifies the name of the property.

OuterLookupField

Optional Text. Used in field definitions

Select

Required Text. Specifies the name of the property to select.

StripWS

Optional Boolean. TRUE to remove white space from the beginning and end of the value returned by the element.

URLEncode

Optional Boolean. TRUE to convert special characters, such as spaces, to quoted UTF-8 format (for example, %c3%ab for character ë).

URLEncodeAsURL

Optional Boolean. Like URLEncode, but TRUE to specify that the string to encode is a path component of a URL so that forward slashes ("/") are not encoded.

The line <Property Select="."/> returns the body of the element in the schema that is being enumerated. For example, within a ForEach statement such as <ForEach Select="CHOICES/CHOICE">, specifying <Property Select="."/> would return the text of one of the conditionals.

If a property cannot be found, a subelement of the current element in the schema enumeration is evaluated whose name is equal to the text specified by Select. For example, if a Field element has no property called Default, then <Property Select="Default"/> will also search for a subelement called Default and render its body text if found.

The following line of code returns the Name property from the current field or view.

<Property Select="Name"/>
