position of first empty element which is child of node
Subject: position of first empty element which is child of nodes processed by "for-each" I have the following XML: <TRANSACTION> <Entry Index="1"> <BdId>487</BdId> </Entry> <Entry Index="2"> <BdId>798</BdId> </Entry> <Entry Index="3"> <BdId/> </Entry> <Entry Index="4"> <BdId/> </Entry> <Entry Index="5"> <BdId/> </Entry> </TRANSACTION> and the following XSL: <xsl:variable name="Num"> <xsl:for-each select="TRANSACTION/Entry"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="string-length(./BdId) = 0"> <xsl:value-of select="position()"/> </xsl:when> </xsl:choose> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:variable> And I want to be able to get the position of the first empty "<BdId>" element -- ("3" in the XML above). In the XSL above "Num" is set to "345" since I cannot break out of the for-each loop when the empty <BdId> is encountered. I saw a way to do this on the FAQ when what is being tested is an "attribute" of what is being iterated through but not a child. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
