It would be great if the current selected node/attribute's xpath query would be displayed as an hint in the query text box.

Yes, I already have the code for this (donated by Chris Lovett), and just need to add it in to the next release. This is very similar to what the Biztalk Mapper has, but I've never been much of a fan of the XPath it produces. But, I can see how it would be a good starting point for someone.

Besides updating the XPath, I would also have to update the Namespace table, but that isn't much of an issue, except I need to let the user know that I did that, somehow.

Also, I want to add the ability to do a little code gen for the user, so we can give them the code needed to execute the XPath statement (along with adding Namespaces, if needed).

I agree with Carlo this would be a fantastic addition to the tool - can't wait for the next release!

great work all the same - This little add-in sure comes in handy!! :)
