Checking validity of date value

Added by Anonymous about 16 years ago

How do I make sure that a date literal is in proper format before passing it to functions such as "fn:adjust-dateTime-to-timezone" ? Such functions throw an exception if the value does not confirm to a valid date literal. I need a graceful way of finding out if the value is in incorrect format so that I can proceed without calling the function. thanks, ananth

This is exactly what the "castable as" operator is for: if ($input castable as xs:dateTime) then adjust-dateTime-to-timezone(xs:dateTime($input)) else f:fofl() Michael Kay
