Constants

Result Type Defined Constant Value Description
ANY_TYPE 0 A result set containing whatever type naturally results from evaluation of the expression. Note that if the result is a node-set then UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE is always the resulting type.
NUMBER_TYPE 1 A result containing a single number. This is useful for example, in an XPath expression using the count() function.
STRING_TYPE 2 A result containing a single string.
BOOLEAN_TYPE 3 A result containing a single boolean value. This is useful for example, in an XPath expression using the not() function.
UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE 4 A result node-set containing all the nodes matching the expression. The nodes may not necessarily be in the same order that they appear in the document.
ORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE 5 A result node-set containing all the nodes matching the expression. The nodes in the result set are in the same order that they appear in the document.
UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE 6 A result node-set containing snapshots of all the nodes matching the expression. The nodes may not necessarily be in the same order that they appear in the document.
ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE 7 A result node-set containing snapshots of all the nodes matching the expression. The nodes in the result set are in the same order that they appear in the document.
ANY_UNORDERED_NODE_TYPE 8 A result node-set containing any single node that matches the expression. The node is not necessarily the first node in the document that matches the expression.
FIRST_ORDERED_NODE_TYPE 9 A result node-set containing the first node in the document that matches the expression.
