V NVSubject: How to add a UserData element inside another element?
Author: V NV
Date: 01 Mar 2005 01:31 AM
I want to add a UserData element to an existing Element.
My xml file looks like:

<ExternalFile id="id15" accessRefs="blahblah" locationRef="blah" format="abc">
</ExternalFile>
<ExternalFile id="id16" accessRefs="blahblah" locationRef="blah" format="xyz">
</ExternalFile>
<ExternalFile id="id17" accessRefs="blahblah" locationRef="blah" format="xyz">
</ExternalFile>

In My case, if format is xyz, I want to add a UserData elememt under ExternalFile.
The output should be:
<ExternalFile id="id15" accessRefs="blahblah" locationRef="blah" format="abc">
<UserData>
<UserValue title="blah" value="blahblah"/>
</UserData>
</ExternalFile>
<ExternalFile id="id16" accessRefs="blahblah" locationRef="blah" format="xyz">
</ExternalFile>
<ExternalFile id="id17" accessRefs="blahblah" locationRef="blah" format="xyz">
</ExternalFile>

My Style sheet is:

<xsl:template name="copy-external-file" >
<xsl:element name="{name()}">
<xsl:for-each select="@*">
<xsl:variable name="attr" select="name()"/>
<xsl:attribute name="{name()}">
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="$attr='format'">
<xsl:element name="UserData">
</xsl:element>
</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:attribute name="{name()}">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</xsl:attribute>
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:attribute>
</xsl:for-each>
<xsl:apply-templates />
</xsl:element>
</xsl:template>

But I get errors like:
file:/D:/Scratch/tceng2plmxml.xsl; Line #25; Column #-1; Cannot add attribute id
after child nodes or before an element is produced. Attribute will be ignored.

Can someone please point out whats wrong in my stylesheet?
Thanks,
VnV

I wrapped your sample data in a <root> tag so that it was well-formed.
Try the attached XSLT. Notice that instead of a for-each, you can just
test for @format='xyz' directly, and if you see it, you can emit your
extra elements.


Documentformat-xyz.xsl
