RemoveEntry: remove an entry in elements of a list

Tag: RemoveEntry

The RemoveEntry function removes an entry from each element in a list, or from a subset of these elements.

Detailed Description

An entry is the name of a list action parameter in a list element.

For example, in <List Name=”List1” Action=”SetVar” v1=”A” v2=”B”/>:

  • Name and Action are not list action parameters, they are mandatory settings of the List action

  • v1 and v2 are action parameters: they relate to “SetVar“; they are considered list entries in the element defined by the List action and can be removed

An entry can be removed from all elements in the list, or from a subset of elements defined by a WHERE clause.

For example, list A contains 10 elements with entries A and B: B can be removed from all elements, or only from elements that match a WHERE clause that compares entry values in each element to its settings.

The WHERE clause is case insensitive.
