Re: dynamic variable name/implementation question
Hi, If you don't know the name of the node to which you would like to apply your template use some wildcards. <xsl:template match="*"> or <xsl:template match="node()"> and then you can do <xsl:if test="local-name() = $param"> <xsl:value-of select="@parameter"/> </xsl:if> inside the template. Hope this helps. cheers, prakash Ed S <lists@highpeaksso To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ftware.com> cc: (bcc: omprakash.v/Polaris) Subject: dynamic variable name/implementation question 08/25/2005 11:47 PM Please respond to xsl-list Hi- I'm trying to find a workaround or alternate implementation for a particular problem I'm tring to solve. I have various parameters that are passed into the processor, and I would like to use their values in the stylesheet. However, I've found that XSLT 1.0 does not support dynamic variables. I would like to do the following: XML: ... <text-block> this is some text. Folowing is dynamic- <external-value parameter="someParam"/> -preceding was dynamic </text-block> ... XSL: ... <xsl:template match="external-vaue"> <xsl:value-of select="$@parameter"/> <!-- this won't work --> </xsl:template> ... where there is a parameter "someParam" passed into the stylesheet - say someParam="foo". My output would be: ... this is some text. Folowing is dynamic- foo -preceding was dynamic ... Has anybody else ever needed this fuctionality?
