Michael CrissonSubject: Output has dashes (Hyphens) that are not wanted
Author: Michael Crisson
Date: 15 Mar 2007 11:22 AM
I am attempting to output data from an XML file into a fixed length text file. I am using the following code to create the pading to the right to left justify the data. This code however is putting dashes in the output as well. I am a total newbie when it comes to this...where am I missing it? I don't want the dashes in the output.

<xsl:template name="pad-right">
<xsl:param name="str" />
<xsl:param name="len" />
- <xsl:choose>
- <xsl:when test="string-length($str) &gt; $len">
<xsl:value-of select="substring($str, 1, $len)" />
</xsl:when>
- <xsl:when test="string-length($str) &lt; $len">
- <xsl:call-template name="pad-right">
<xsl:with-param name="str" select="concat($str, ' ')" />
<xsl:with-param name="len" select="$len" />
</xsl:call-template>
</xsl:when>
- <xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:value-of select="$str" />
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:template>

Hi Michael,
is this the real code, or is it what Internet Explorer shows when it loads the XSL? The code looks fine...

This is how the code looks in the Stylus Studio Enterprise software. The output is also viewed through Stylus Studio Enterprise and Excel. In both, there are dashes (Hyphens) that show up in the output when it cycles through each line of code. When the output is finally displayed it has the dashes and then the correct output after the dashes.

Here is what the output looks like:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 67.5

I forgot to mention that the length of the string four and the desired lenght was 12, so there are 8 trailing blanks after the 67.5.

Hi Michael,
in this case you should just remove them; they have been probably
added because the original XSLT code was copy & pasted from an
Internet Explorer window (that uses the dashes to indicate whether a
node has been collapsed or expanded).

Hope this helps,
Alberto
