RE: How to implement an array
Do I understand that you have an element which will contain child elements, each of which you wish to use as the heading values for a table? If that is right, is it also correct that you will have one or more instances of the parent element, but that the child elements are optional? That is to say that all possible child elements will not necessarily appear in all instances of the parent element. If these things are true, then we have two problems to solve: 1) collect all possible values for column names 2) construct a table with one column for each column name Is this correct? -- Charles Knell cknell@xxxxxxxxxx - email -----Original Message----- From: Imrran Wahid <devguy2003@xxxxxxxxx> Sent: Fri, 7 Feb 2003 12:34:40 -0800 (PST) To: XSL-List@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: How to implement an array Can I use an array in xsl? If not, any ideas on how to do the following: I am using the elements of a particular node to create a table. The name of the elements are used for the column headings. The node is uneven...a named child element could exist in one row, but may be omitted from others. So i build the heading by testing the parent to see if there are elements of a named child. Now I would like to use the name from the column headings as a parameter to pass to a template to populate the table cells. Problem is i do not know how to store the column headings...like in an array. Are there any other way i could do this? Imrran __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
