Re: newbie variable question
<xsl:if test="string(type)='DMA'"> <xsl:value-of select="name"/> <xsl:variable name="ValueExists" select="'True'"/> </xsl:if> the scope of your variable definition ends here. ... <xsl:if test="$ValueExists!="'True'"> so its not defined here. Also xsl has boolean valued variables so you don't need to mess with faking things with th estring 'True'. > What I am trying to do is: > if there are any grp/type element whose contents are "DMA" I want to > print out the value of the associated name in that grp. if there is no > grp/type element whose contents is "DMA" I want to print out the values > of the description element. <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:value-of test="area/grp[type='DMA']/name | description[not(/area/type='DMA')]" /> </xsl:template> David XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
