Mycontent not showing up when I use the xslt stylesheet

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

Mycontent not showing up when I use the xslt stylesheet

Post by felix1845 » Tue May 30, 2017 5:06 pm

I made an xsl stylesheet and followed all the instructions in a tutorial I found online. It showed me this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?> 
<xsl:stylesheet version = "1.0"
xmlns:xsl = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:template match = "/">
<html>
<body>
<h2>Students</h2>
<table border = "1">
<tr bgcolor = "#9acd32">
<th>Roll No</th>
<th>First Name</th>
<th>Last Name</th>
<th>Nick Name</th>
<th>Marks</th>
</tr>

<xsl:for-each select = "class/student">
<tr>
<td><xsl:value-of select = "@rollno"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select = "firstname"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select = "lastname"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select = "nickname"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select = "marks"/></td>
</tr>
</xsl:for-each>

</table>
</body>
</html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
And I did that with my own xsl, like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
exclude-result-prefixes="xs"
version="2.0">
<xsl:template match="/">
<html>
<body>
<h2 style="text-align:center">
Marginalia in Mandeville's Travels
</h2>
<table>
<tr bgcolor = "#ffffff">
<th>Left Margin</th>
<th>Text Block</th>
<th>Right Margin</th>
</tr>
<xsl:for-each select="table">
<tr>
<td><xsl:value-of select="row/left"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="row/middle"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="row/right"/></td>
</tr>
</xsl:for-each>
</table>
</body>
</html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
And what happens is the table header stuff arrives, but none of the table content appears. Can someone point out what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

Hi,

What's your XML source?

Without seeing the source, I guess it should work with

Code: Select all

<xsl:for-each select="//table">

That works! The formatting's all to hell, but I can figure that out. Thanks!
