Hi All,

I am trying to get the maximum no of column in a table through XSLT code. Below i had placed the sample table format. Here column tagged as 'th' and 'td'. Some of the column having 'colspan' attribute. I am struggling how to add colspan value in a variable recursively and get the maximum no of column in this table.

Please any one guide me on this. Thanks.

I'll solve this problem but little confused with the question. What do u want to find out,
1- The total no. of column in 1 table or
2- The row which has the maximum number of column in this table???

Hi Varun,

Thanks for your reply, I am trying to get the second option ( The row which has the maximum number of column in this table ).

Thanks in advance.

The row <tr> which has more number of <tr> or <td>, will have the maximum number of columns. Use :-


<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="2.0">
<xsl:template match="table">
<xsl:variable name="demo-xml">
<doc>
<xsl:for-each select=".//tr">
<tr>
<xsl:attribute name="columnNumber" select="count(./*)"/>
</tr>
</xsl:for-each>
</doc>
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:for-each select="$demo-xml/doc/tr">
<xsl:variable name="number" select="number(@columnNumber)"/>
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when
test="count(preceding-sibling::tr[number(@columnNumber) &gt; $number]) + count(following-sibling::tr[number(@columnNumber) &gt; 0])"> </xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:value-of
select="concat('The row number ' ,position(),' has maximum number of columns.')"
/>
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>

</xsl:for-each>
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>


output:
The row number 6 has maximum number of columns.
