Subject Re: Append References? (refid question)
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2005 16:07:27 GMT
It sounds like you want to append to paths, which you denote using
references. Appending references does not make sense (to me at least).
You could probably append to your path using JavaScript, not with pure Ant
means.
<project name="appendpath">
<path id="exampleID"/>
 <for list="a,b,c" param="example">
     <sequential>
  <script language="javascript"> <![CDATA[
         // appendpath is the project object
         // get a pointer to the path as a reference
         exampleIDref=appendpath.getReference("exampledID");
         exampleIDpath=exampleIDref.getReferencedObject(appendpath);
         newpe=exampleIDpath.createPathElement();
         newpe.setLocation(appendpath.getProperty("example")); 
    ]]> </script>
     </sequential>
 </for>
</project>
