Here should go questions about transforming XML with XSLT and FOP.

How do I add false to a empty string?

Post by winkimjr2 » Fri Jan 02, 2015 7:19 pm

I would like to display the word false instead of an empty string "" for the

Code: Select all

<ext:AddressReference ext:currentIndicator="">
. How do I do this?

My output which is wrong

Code: Select all


<ext:AddressReference ext:currentIndicator="true">
<nc:LocationReference s:ref="INT10566286"/>
</ext:AddressReference>
<ext:AddressReference ext:currentIndicator="">
<nc:LocationReference s:ref="INT4279606"/>
</ext:AddressReference>
Desired output adds the word false to the empty string

Code: Select all


<ext:AddressReference ext:currentIndicator="true">
<nc:LocationReference s:ref="INT10566286"/>
</ext:AddressReference>
<ext:AddressReference ext:currentIndicator="false">
<nc:LocationReference s:ref="INT4279606"/>
</ext:AddressReference>
My xml code

Code: Select all


<Address PartyCorrespondence="true" PartyCurrent="true" ID="10566286" Type="Standard">
<AddressLine2>772 Minnesota AVE</AddressLine2>
<AddressLine4>Big Lake, MN, 55309</AddressLine4>
<Street>Minnesota</Street>
<City>Big Lake</City>
<State>MN</State>
<Zip>55309</Zip>
</Address>
<Address ID="4279606" Type="Non Standard">
<AddressLine1>8435 OAK LANE</AddressLine1>
<AddressLine4>BECKER, MN, 55308</AddressLine4>
<City>BECKER</City>
<State>MN</State>
<Zip>55308</Zip>
</Address>
My xslt code

Code: Select all


<xsl:for-each select="Address">
<ext:AddressReference>
<xsl:attribute name="ext:currentIndicator"><xsl:value-of select="@PartyCurrent"/></xsl:attribute>
<nc:LocationReference>
<xsl:attribute name="s:ref"><xsl:text>INT</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="@ID"/></xsl:attribute>
</nc:LocationReference>
</ext:AddressReference>
</xsl:for-each>

I fixed this by doing this:

Code: Select all

<xsl:attribute name="ext:currentIndicator">
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="@PartyCurrent = 'true'">true</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>false</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:attribute>
