RE: call-template can't find the template?
Hi Greg, I'm not sure why you're calling templates (the ones you have below should get fired when matching nodes are encountered). To call a template you need to give it a name, then use that name in the xsl:call-template e.g.: <xsl:template match="/"> blah blah.. <xsl:call-template name="myTemplate"/> </xsl:template> <xsl:template name="myTemplate"> <!-- do something with the current context--> </xsl:template> Hope that helps. cheers Malcolm -----Original Message----- From: Greg Kushmerek [mailto:gkushmer@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, June 24, 2002 3:15 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: call-template can't find the template? I'm having trouble with the call-template element. Here's how I'm using it in my stylesheet: <!-- p template --> <xsl:template match="p"> <xsl:text /><xsl:apply-templates /><xsl:text/> </xsl:template> <!-- bu template --> <xsl:template match="bu"> - <xsl:call-template name="p" /> </xsl:template> I'm applying it to text such as follows: <p>The <tt>mstatus</tt> command tells you the status of one or more files in a sandbox with regards to the file's branch. The command is useful for telling you which branch a file in your sandbox comes from, and the file's state with regards to that branch. You use it to answer questions such as:</p> <bu>Did you get a file from the subsystem branch or someone else's private branch?</bu> <bu>Is a file locally modified?</bu> <bu>Do you have the latest revision of a file?</bu> <p>The default output shows you the file's name, its status, and the branch to which the file is stuck.</p> Yet if I call Xalan (1.3 on Linux), I get this error: XSLT error: Could not find named template., style tree node: xsl:call-template (file:///sandbox/gkushmer/A/matlab/bat/doc/batml/xsl/nroff.xsl, line 93, column 33) What confuses me is how Xalan says it can't find the template when it's there. What is it I'm missing? Is this error Xalan's way of really saying "you can't use call-template that way"???
