Graham O'SheaSubject: Alternative Image.
Author: Graham O'Shea

I am a complete newbie to XSLT, I have been managing quite well with the help of Stylusstudio and the tutorial videos. I am stuck on 1 thing and hopefully somebody can help me out.

I have an image element in my XML this is sometimes returned empty. How do I show an alternative image if the element is returned empty?

Be gentle with the answers, as I say I a complete newbie.

Hi Graham,
supposing that the image is stored in an attribute named "image", a possibile solution is this one

<xsl:attribute name="src">
<xsl:if test="@image"><xsl:value-of select="@image"/></xsl:if>
<xsl:if test="not(@image)">placeholder.gif</xsl:if>

Hope this helps,
