Re: Match first non-empty from different fragments
Well, There are man z:row elements node with attribute value pairs. So like this: <z:row name_of_meet="Funtastic" date_of_meet="10/10/2005"/> Currently, I would ask the question (assuming above is current node). (in plain english) If name_of_meet is empty, then find the parent record name_of_event. The parent record is contained within the XML source but spawns off another fragment. Here, let me do up an example: <results> <result name="event"><!-- this is the parent --> <xml> <rs:data> <z:row name_of_event="The Great Funtastic" date_of_meet="10/10/2005"/> <rs:data> </xml> </result> <result name="meet"><!-- this is the child --> <rs:data><z:row name_of_event="" date_of_meet="10/10/2005"/> </rs:data> </result> </results> There is another <result / > set of data, it is called "scores". This data is the meat of the page. There are many scores, with a single header of data from either the "meet" result set or the "event" result set where no data is provided in the child "meet" result set. In my template I pretty much have 2 main apply-template rules. apply-templates: for meet header information apply-templates: for all of the scores. It is the first of these 2 that I need to come up with a way at getting at the details using an apply-templates over xsl:choose type syntax. I'll leave it at that for now! Let me know if I need to provide more information. Karl On Thu, 20 Jan 2005 09:36:10 +0200, Jarno.Elovirta@xxxxxxxxx <Jarno.Elovirta@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi, > > > Do you call it a fragment?
