Also try one of these:

<bind nodeset="items/item[1]" relevant="false()" /> 

<bind nodeset="items/item" relevant="positition() &gt; 1"/>

Subject: Empty Repeats


Hello, 

I was trying to find a way to make a Repeat structure that could have no
initial elements, or at least that could display no elements when the form
is loaded. This is because I'm using XForms to process external documents
that maybe not always provide instance data for some of the Repeats. I have
looked in the specification and it clearly says that initial instance data
must be provided to construct the members to the homogeneous collection, but
I though that maybe there is a way such as copying the repeat data from an
inline instance, but I couldn't make it work. If anyone have any idea it
would be very appreciated.

Another issue is that when deleting the last element of a Repeat structure,
at least in X-smiles, it doesn't let you insert new nodes anymore, until the
form is reloaded. Maybe this is only a bug of X-smiles, because the
specification doesn't say anything about this.

Regards,

Guillermo
