SelectNodes Xpath Contains - Getting XSLT Unknown Function error

I am trying to get certain nodes within an xml doc that contain certain
text (similar to a SQL LIKE). In doing so I am using the XPATH Contains
function and have not been successful. When I run I get the following
System.Xml.XPat h.XPathExceptio n: XsltContext is needed for this query
because of an unknown function.

I can successfully get simple xpath queries to work, just none using
the Contains function. Any help would be appreciated.

Dim dom As New XmlDocument
Dim nodeList As XmlNodeList
Dim nsManager As New XmlNamespaceMan ager(dom.NameTa ble)

nsManager.AddNa mespace("xsi",

dom.Load(txtFil e.Text)

Dim query As String = "//TypeName[Contains(., '_LU_')]"
nodeList = dom.SelectNodes (query, nsManager)

You are VB impaired where case does not matter but for XPath and XSLT
function names it does matter so try the function 'contains':
"//TypeName[contains(., '_LU_')]"

Is there a simple way of compare dates? I am trying to create a list of perishable stock in an inventory that is near or past its expiration date. I've tried telling it to compare a node's value with a DateTime string, but that doesn't work. I've assumed that it is easier to manipulate today's date instead of the date in my ExpireDate element. Thankyou in advanced for taking the time to read this and possibly helping me

Hi, all! Using VS.Net 2003 (vb.net)... I've build a sample app (Windows application) to manipulate xml data from file, and all works fine. However, when I move code that works fine from the Windows app into a SmartDevice app template, I'm getting an error telling me that 'SelectNodes is not a member of System.Xml.XmlDocument'. Is there a difference between the classes when used in a Windows app versus a SmartDevice app?? Seems to me...

Hi, This is a newbie question to XMLNS. I just finished the article on "XML Namespaces and How They Affect XPath and XSLT" by Dare Obasanjo and I'm pretty sure I understand the problem. I just don't know how to achieve the desired XPath result. I'm dealing with an XML document that has two XMLNS' in the root node (Report) and I'm ending up with 0 results using SelectNodes. If I take out both namespaces, the SelectNodes(XPathQuery) works...
