RE: FOR-EACH based on criteria and number output
you need to locate all ITEM nodes -- //ITEM then check the very preceding TITLE node -- [preceding::TITLE != $title1 finally, use position() to give you the numbers Good luck. <?xml version="1.0"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"> <xsl:variable name="title1" select="'Raging River'"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:for-each select="//ITEM[preceding::TITLE != $title1]"> <xsl:value-of select="concat(position(), '. ', .)"/><br/> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> -----Original Message----- From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of tsterlin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, February 18, 2004 10:28 PM To: XSL-List@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Hello, I'm attempting to produce an HTML document from an XML one using XSLT. I need to make a numbered list of a certain tag's(<ITEM>) info contained within the XML document. This challenge here is that I only want certain <ITEM>s to be contained in my list while others should be omitted, however all <ITEM>s have the same ancestry. The only distinguishing element is a sibling tag known as <TITLE> with different literal values stored in them. It is the value stored in this <TITLE> that needs to determine the <ITEM>'s inclusion to or exclusion from the list: <GROUP> <PARA0> <TITLE>Magic Mountains</TITLE> <STEP1> <ITEM>This is the first item.</ITEM> </STEP1> <STEP1> <ITEM>This is the second item.</ITEM> </STEP1> </PARA0> <PARA0> <TITLE>Raging River</TITLE> <STEP1> <ITEM>I don't want this item.</ITEM> </STEP1> <STEP1> <ITEM>I don't want this item either.</ITEM> </STEP> </PARA0> <PARA0> <TITLE>Spectacular Sky</TITLE> <STEP1> <ITEM>This is the third item.</ITEM> </STEP1> <STEP1> <ITEM>This is the fourth item.</ITEM> </STEP1> </PARA0> </GROUP> ---------------The HTML output should be as follows: 1. This is the first item. 2. This is the second item. 3. This is the third item. 4. This is the fouth item. Any ideas?
