Hi David,

I think what you want to do is putting the test inside the variable. Like this:

<xsl:variable name="numTickets">
       <xsl:when test="price_type = 56">8</xsl:when>
       <xsl:when test="price_type = 57">4</xsl:when>

This way you can use the variable $numTickets inside any other function in the same scope, or global scope if you defined the variable on root level.

Is it possible to set the value of a variable based upon a test?

My first effort is below, and I also tried to assign the value to the
variable using xsl:attribute but that doesn't work either.

	<xsl:when test="price_type = 56"><xsl:variable name="numTickets"
	<xsl:when test="price_type = 57"><xsl:variable name="numTickets"
	<xsl:otherwise><xsl:variable name="numTickets"


<xsl:call-template name="counter">
     <xsl:with-param name="max" select="$numTickets"/>

I'm guessing that one cannot assign values to variables inline like this, but I've not managed to get it working so a bit of guidance that will help me work this out would be much appreciated.

Regards, David
