xsl if test example
Hi Jean-Christophe,

I don't know the difference between them, just don't use the WD-xsl.

<xsl:if test='(test1) and (test2) and (test3)'>
<xsl:if test='(test1) or (test2) or (test3)'>
should work if your tests are syntactically correct.

I use tests like:
<xsl:when test="xsd:restriction[@base='xsd:string'] or

Thing is by putting WD-xsl in your XSLT, the IE uses a Microsoft dialect of
XSLT which is not conform the W3C-specs. The WD stands for Working Draft and
you can expect problems with that. No non-MS-parser has to support the
WD-dialect, but the MSXML-parsers (like IE uses) do. So why DO you use this
WD-xsl???? Try putting the line
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" into your XSLT. If the IE
doesn't display anything anymore, try installing the MSXML4 on your client
and try if your XSLT works then.
If it still doesn't work, you know it's not the WD-xsl giving the problem,
and we can look into your XML and XSL to see what's wrong.

Hi all,

I'm generating an XSL from an XML template, using the DOM, for the WD-xsl
version (IE5 client) !!!
In my application, depending on the value of an attribute (@LOGIC = 'and' or
@LOGIC='or'), I have to write a different output :

If the value is 'and', i must write an xsl:if test with few tests depending
on the number of specific childnodes. For example if I have three childnodes

<xsl:if test='(test1) and (test2) and (test3)'>

Of course with a value of 'or', I should write :

<xsl:if test='(test1) or (test2) or (test3)'>

My first problem is that it seems the WD-xsl version can't handle that, I
can only make one test : example :

<xsl:if test='/ELEMENT1[@Attrib1 = 'val1' $and$ @Attrib2 = 'val2']'> (this

This doesn't work :

<xsl:if test='(/ELEMENT1[@Attrib1 = 'val1' $and$ @Attrib2 = 'val2']) and
(test2) and (test3)'>

So first question : Is this "normal" and does it depends on the XSL Parser
version ?
Second question : How can i handle it with the WD-xsl version ?

I started looking for a serie of <xsl:if> such as :
<xsl:if test='test1'>
    <xsl:if test='test2'>
        <xsl:if test='test3'>
            This is okay in the case of a 'and' for my @LOGIC attribute

But how to do it for the 'or'

I can't do this (the output file would be too large)

<xsl:if test='test1'>
     write my XML bloc
<xsl:if test='test2'>
     write my XML bloc
<xsl:if test='test3'>
     write my XML bloc

And it's the same with the xsl:choose/xsl:when.

If someone feels inspired... Don't hesitate

Thanks a lot
