XSL Report format change in ORD

Hi all,

Upon adding my SS4 OpenRoads reports into ORD I have realised there has been an XSL format change. Nothing major, but enough to require editing of all pre-existing report XSLs to work with ORD.

This includes an understandable replacement of the old "inr" namespace with "cif" and some format changes, ie. old "elevationFormat" is now "ordinateFormat". There has also been the removal of the units and precision parameters that previously allowed for hardcoding of units.

eg.

NEW = <xsl:value-of select="cif:ordinateFormat(number(GeometryPoint/@elevation))"/>

OLD = <xsl:value-of select="inr:elevationFormat(number(GeometryPoint/@elevation), $xslElevationPrecision1)"/> 

The provided documentation in: C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition\OpenRoadsDesigner\Default\Reports\ are still just the Inroads report documents - Is there any documentation on the new XSL report format or at least a supplement that we can use to create reports for ORD?

One welcome change is that the report error dialog now points you to what the error is in the XSL which was quite frustrating to pinpoint previously, but some documentation would avoid constant trial-and-error to resolve errors in commonly used reports

  • Hi Mark,  This change occurred because all of the JavaScript code had to be re-written to work with the newer versions of the Microsoft XML code.  The schemas should all be pretty much the same in the XML, but the JavaScript used to format will have to be modified as you've shown above.  I was told that more documentation will follow, but at this time we don't have a full list with the changes.  I am planning to start a WIKI over in the OpenRoads Designer pages to list the differences as we find them.
