Re: Template Select using a param
OK, cool. What I'm trying to do is this: I'm performing an SQL query to generate a ROWSET. I then want to display the results of this in a table. I have XML saying which columns to include. So I generate the correct number of columns using this xml and give them the right headers. Then I want to go through the rows in the rowset and for each row display only the values of the children which are specified in the earlier xml. So as i process the rows, i re-process the fields xml for each row, passing in the current rows id. So when i loop through the fields I want to say - for current row output the values of the children with the names specified in the fields.xml. When processing these fields i have $id - the row number and value-of . which is the field I need to pick out. And I want to display the value of that field within that row. It's probably not the best way of doing it - but it seemed pretty simple when I set out...
