U4-6541 - Error in help text

Created by Alex Skrypnyk 22 Apr 2015, 09:47:21 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 07:11:21

Looks like we have some little error in the Umbraco Data Type creation window, when we are trying to create 'Multinode Tree Picker' and using xPath for nodes restriction:


But it works only if we are using // double slash.

We are using Umbraco 7.2.4

I would say that it's a bug in the XPath parsing then - using a double slash is quite different.

I've just tried this in an Umbraco 7.2.1, where using {{$parent}} works fine.

One thing to remember, though is that if the XPath returns more than one node, only the first is used. And if that first node has Listview enabled, you won't see any nodes in the dialog, but searching will find them.

I guess that could be spelled out a little more clearly in the help text, so...
