martin mayerSubject: Filtering data with a combo box and a submit button
Author: martin mayer
Date: 25 Sep 2006 11:55 AM

I'me trying to list data to the screen using a filter (a combo box and a submit button) situated on the top of the screen. So a user would select the type of records he wants in the combo box, let's say "R.F.I." and the system filter the xml records to show only the records that is in "R.F.I.". So far i've been able to create the combo box and the result of a query, all in xsl. The problem is that i can't transfert the selected filter in a xsl:variable. The submit button does'nt seem to work.

Here is my code :
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="html"/>

<xsl:template match="/"><xsl:variable name="filterService" select="'PSYCHIATRIE'"/>
<script Language="JavaScript">
function confirm_dropdown()

// Check to see if the dropdown value is is the first choice
if (the_form.dropdown.selectedIndex == 0)

// If the first choice is selected display an alert box
// stating the first choice is not a valid selection
"Please select a movie type.");

// Focus on the dropdown menu after OK is clicked from the alert box
return (false);
// A choice other than the first was selected
// cotinue processing the form request
return (true);

<form action="http://www.codeave.com/html/get.asp" method="get" onsubmit_="return confirm_dropdown()">
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />&#160;
<input type="reset" value="Reset"/>
<p align="center">
<font size="4">Liste des usagers hospitalisÚs</font>
<p align="left">
<font size="2">
<table width="100%" border="1">
<td width="16%">Unite de soin</td>
<td width="16%">Chambre</td>
<td width="16%">Nom</td>
<td width="16%">Prenom</td>
<td width="16%"/>
<td width="16%"/>
<xsl:for-each select="root/v_admissionEpisodePresent[service=$filterService]">
<xsl:sort select="uniteSoin"/>
<xsl:sort select="lit"/>
<td width="16%">
<xsl:value-of select="uniteSoin"/>
<td width="16%">
<xsl:value-of select="lit"/>
<td width="16%">
<xsl:value-of select="nom"/>
<td width="16%">
<xsl:value-of select="prenom"/>
<td width="16%"/>
<td width="16%"/>

<xsl:template match="/root/v_admissionEpisodePresent">

<xsl:attribute name="value">
<xsl:value-of select="service"/>
<xsl:value-of select="service"/>


To resume there is 2 problems:
-Passing the selected value in a xsl:variable
-Using the xsl:variable to filter the records (i think i've done it...not shure it work)

Tanks for any help

Is this lost, lonely close parens actually in your code or was that a typo in your post? It would definitely cause an error in your javascript function.
"Please select a movie type.");
