Hi!
I´m a newbie trying to get the size of groups with XSLT 2.0
What I'm trying to do is get the count of different child elements of a certain node, so I'm grouping them by name.

Given the following sample xml file what I want is a 2 columns table:

Node name | Instances
A | 1
B | 2
C | 1

And what I get with my code is the number of childs, not the size of each gruop.

Node name | Instances
A | 3
B | 2
C | 1

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<demo>
	<A>
		<aa1>data1</aa1>
		<aa2>data2</aa2>
		<aa3>data3</aa3>
	</A>
	<B>
		<bb1>data1</bb1>
		<bb2>data1</bb2>
	</B>
	<B>
		<bb1>data1</bb1>
		<bb2>data1</bb2>
	</B>
	<C>
		<cc1>data3</cc1>
	</C>
</demo>

Here is my xslt code

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:template match="demo">
  <html>
  <body>
  <h2>Group by name</h2>
  <table border="1">
    <tr bgcolor="#9acd32">
	  <th>Node name</th>
      <th>Instances</th>	  
    </tr>
	<xsl:for-each-group select="*" group-by="name()">
    	<tr>
		    <td><xsl:value-of select="name()" /></td>
			<!-- this returns the number of childs, not the size of the GROUP -->
			<td><xsl:value-of select="count(*)" /></td>
		</tr>
	</xsl:for-each-group>
  </table>
  </body>
  </html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Thanks in advance!
Lorena

Thanks for your reply but your code returns the number of childs for each node type, and what I need is for each node type the count of the nodes with that type.

I think that using count(*) inside the for-each-group is the problem, cause this is counting the children.

thanks

count context each node
there are 3 kind of text data1 data2 data3
