Re: can one pass a parameter when opening an xml file?
Hi Eric: >From my understanding (can't tell what parser you will be using) usually you instanciate the xsl transformation process by telling the parser which XML file and which XSL stylesheet to use. In many cases, the XML document defines which stylesheet to use on the client-side. If you are talking about adding data to the XML doc (passing a parameter to it) then you need some sort of service to handle this before XSL transformation. If both XML docs. have the same node-sets, but you want different results then you would use different stylesheets or use a dynamically-generated XSL stylesheet, which would again require another service. I think a good starting place would be to structure your data in a way that you keep your apples with apples and oranges with oranges. -johnG Eric Taylor wrote: > Perhaps just a bizarre idea (novices are good on this front), but is it > possible to add a parameter when opening an xml file so that I can do > something different in the XSL depending on what the parameter is? e.g. > filename.xml A vs. filename.xml B and then in the XSL do something like > <xsl:if parameter1="A">...<xsl:if> <xsl:if parameter1="B">...<xsl:if> > > XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
