Synopsis

f:orderedlist-startingnumber($list as element(db:orderedlist)) as xs:integer

Description

In most orderedlist elements, the first item in the list is item number “1”. However, the startingnumber attribute can specify a different initial number and, in the case of continued lists, the starting number depends on the ending number of the preceding list.

The f:orderedlist-startingnumber() returns the number of the first list item in an ordered list.
