xslt attributes

Post by jkar » Mon Oct 03, 2005 6:34 pm

Hi, I have an xml file. I am trying to get the data from this by using the xslt.
my xml is as follows,
<xsl:template match="tlkpSpec">
<!-- <code><xsl:apply-templates select="LOC"/></code> -->
<!-- <name><xsl:apply-templates select="NAME"/></name> -->
<Lookup value="should put code value here"> <xsl:apply-templates select="SPECIAL"/></Lookup>


The problem is is that i need to take the value of code and place it into my lookup value?. Is there a way of doing this. Alternativley, i need to create an incrementing number for each value. Please can someone help?.

In order to achieve your goal the Lookup element should be inserted like this in your xsl file:

Code: Select all

        <xsl:element name="LookupCombo">
<xsl:attribute name="value">
<xsl:value-of select="//code/text()"/>
Of course the value of the select expression should point to the correct text value of the code element.

You can find more information about the use of xsl:element here:

You can also use an atribute value template and specify something like

<Lookup value="{code}"> <xsl:apply-templates select="SPECIAL"/></Lookup>
