I wonder how xforms handles a case when a control becomes irrelevant based
on value of the instance data but the submission still needs to submit that
value. Or in that case we are not supposed to use relevance and use
something else? What is that other option?

Hi Meghana,

 

The first one.  Relevance applies to instance nodes.  The relevant MIP is
then interpreted by both bound form controls and submission.

Hello,

 

When a <Bind> element has relevance attribute, is it supposed to make the
bound element in the XForms model relevant or the bound control relevant? In
the former case, the control will see that the model is not relevant right
now and hide itself; also the submission will not include that value. In the
later case, the control is hidden but model still holds that value as valid
data. Which approach is correct?

 

Thanks,

Meghana.
