RE: Displaying column headers only if variable changes
I'm using MagicDraw and they use XSL to generate their reports. I'm customizing it for our company. I believe it is custom XML.

My I ask with what tool? What format is your diagram coordinate data being saved in? SVG? PGML? custom xml? I ask because I'm currently working on an xslt for pgml to svg (btw if anyone else has done similar I'd love to hear from you!) for www.argouml.org thanks Dennis ----- Original Message ----- From: "Brian Burridge" <brian_burridge@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <XSL-List@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, February 11, 2002 7:05 PM Subject: Displaying column headers only if variable changes > > I have an xml list of diagrams.

What I need to do now, however, is every time the type changes, print the type name.

As you see in the code, right now I'm printing what lastDiagramType is changed to, for debug purposes, and it never changes. It stays "LAST" as I default set it, but it is hitting that code. > > Any ideas? > > Brian N.
