RE: Changing row colors using variables

My table will be sorted based on a certain attribute, and I want all like attributes colored the same. Sounds like maybe there is no way to do this. > -----Original Message----- > From: David Carlisle [mailto:davidc@xxxxxxxxx] > Sent: Wednesday, November 07, 2001 4:51 PM > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: Re: Changing row colors using variables > > > <xsl:when test="$currentRowColor='#EFFFFF'"> > $currentRowColor=#FFFFFF > </xsl:when> > > firstly > > $currentRowColor=#FFFFFF > > doesn't assign anything to a variable it is just a text node and puts > that text (along with some white space) into the attribute. > To assign a value to a variable you use xsl:variable. > > But if you used an assignment here it would go out of scope at the end > of the current element ie at the </xsl:when>. > > In any case you can not change th evalue of a variable once > it is bound. > > If you are trying to make the colours alternate then just use the > expression position() mod 2, there's an example doing this in > the spec, > and the faqs for this list. > > David > > > _____________________________________________________________________ > This message has been checked for all known viruses by Star Internet > delivered through the MessageLabs Virus Scanning Service.
