RE: Filtering on attributes
Flemming, thanks for the response. Unfortunately, It does not work. I can only suppose for document function that it is copying the values and pasting it. Perhaps that is the reason it does not recognise category at all. What do you think? -----Original Message----- From: Flemming Jønsson [mailto:flj@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: 20 November 2003 14:24 To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Cc: SHEIKH Sajjad Subject: RE: Filtering on attributes Hello, > Is it possible to filter the data on attribute value before > displaying?

So all you need to do is construct the Xpath to retrieve the nodes with attribute values you need. For writing Xpaths this guide is a good intro (se the list to the left): http://www.zvon.org/xxl/XPathTutorial/General/examples.html Cheers, Flemming ______________________________________________________________ This message has been scanned for all viruses by BTnet VirusScreen.
