Re: syntax question: using a variable inside format-number()
Thanks again Steve. I was trying to be slick by using the variable ($curcat) right within the path given to the format-number function but finally realized I couldn't do it that way. I was able to get the desired result using the following: <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="$curcat='Cash'"> <xsl:value-of select="format-number(/AssetAnalyzer/cash,'#00%')"/> </xsl:when> <xsl:when test="$curcat='Domestic Equity'"> <xsl:value-of select="format-number(/AssetAnalyzer/domesticEquity,'#00%')"/> </xsl:when> <xsl:when test="$curcat='Domestic Fixed Income'"> <xsl:value-of select="format-number(/AssetAnalyzer/domesticFixedIncome,'#00%')"/> </xsl:when> <xsl:when test="$curcat='International Equity'"> <xsl:value-of select="format-number(/AssetAnalyzer/internationalEquity,'#00%')"/> </xsl:when> </xsl:choose> ----- Original Message ----- From: "Steve Muench" <Steve.Muench@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, November 30, 2000 10:53 AM Subject: Re: syntax question: using a variable inside format-number() > Given the current node, you then need to select > via an XPath expression the value of the element > that you want to format as a percent, then. > You can't use the $curcat as a substitutible > part of a patch expression.
