RE: Example to checkbox in XSL
Thanks Mike, So when I right click on the page and view source I have seen this XML text as below: ?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?> <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="/vsconsole/xsl/AMTestVoIP.xsl"?> <AUTOMON_TEST> <ACTION>EDIT</ACTION> <TESTID>1</TESTID> <SUITEID>1</SUITEID> So I didn't see how to view/generate the html file on this page. -Thanks, Jp -----Original Message----- From: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, August 06, 2007 1:44 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: Example to checkbox in XSL An XSLT stylesheet typically takes XML as input and HTML as output. The browser takes the HTML as input and produces a particular effect on the screen. So if you want to produce a particular effect on the screen, you first have to work out what HTML will create this effect, and then you have to work out how to create this HTML from your XML (by using XSLT). XSLT is a programming language, and as with any program, you shouldn't start coding until you know (at least in outline) what output you want it to produce, which in this case means the HTML. You can't automatically generate the XSLT from the HTML - but in simple cases, having done an HTML mockup of your page, you can ask yourself "which fields in the HTML depend on which fields in the source XML", and then you can work backwards by replacing parts of the HTML with bits of XSLT code, for example changing <tr><td>green</td><td>230</td></tr> to <xsl:template match="product"> <tr> <td><xsl:value-of select="color"/></td> <td><xsl:value-of select="height"/></td> </tr> </xsl:template> - something I call "fill-in-the-blanks" coding, and which accounts for the name "template". Of course once you get the hang of this you won't usually need to write the HTML down first - but it's important to have it clearly in your head as your code your XSLT. Certainly the design approach of working backwards from your output (rather than forwards from your input) is important when working with XSLT, because if ever there's a structure clash between the input and the output, your XSLT code will need to follow the output structure rather than the input.
