RE: when test
Hi Mike. Appreciate the response. Your solution would work great if the answer existed in my XML data, but my problem on this one is that I need to do the test on what the getdirectory script returns rather than on anything in my current file, that is, the equivalent of: <xsl:when test="not(<xsl:eval>getDirectory(this.getAttribute('page'))</xsl:eval>)"> only I know I can't do it like that. I thought of putting the value the script into a variable and testing that, but MSXML2 (which is what I'm stuck with for the moment with IE5) doesn't support xsl:variable (see http://www.vbxml.com/xsl/XSLTRef.asp <http://www.vbxml.com/xsl/XSLTRef.asp> ), so I don't think I can do that. Anyone have further thoughts? From: Mike Gargiullo [mailto:mgargiullo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] <xsl:when test="not(sometag='')"> will be true if "sometag" contains data (sometag is from your xml structure, can be at any level) *************************** ----Original Message----- From: Eric Taylor [ mailto:Eric.Taylor@xxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:Eric.Taylor@xxxxxxxxxxxx> ] Part of my XSL looks like this: <xsl:choose> <xsl:when *** stuck here ***> <A> <xsl:attribute name="href"><xsl:eval>getDirectory(this.getAttribute('page'))</xsl:eval></xs l:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="target">new_window</xsl:attribute> <xsl:value-of select="@text"/> </A> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:value-of select="@text"/> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> I only want the "when" to happen if <xsl:eval>getDirectory(this.getAttribute('page'))</xsl:eval> returns some value (that is, if it returns a blank value, I want to do the "otherwise"). I don't know the syntax for this. Thanks. Eric XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
