Hello everyone! I just had a quick question about XSLT. I have a large xml file with many <DIMENSION_Id> nodes nested inside each other. In each <DIMENSION_Id> node there are two SYN tags: <SYN>String</SYN><SYN>Integer</SYN> What I am trying to do is take the furthest child node of each DIMENSION_Id and connect it with all of its ancestor paths to create a URL.
<DIMENSION_Id> <SYN>Text</SYN> <SYN>Number</SYN <DIMENSION_Id> <SYN>More Text</SYN> <SYN>Another Number</SYN> </DIMENSION_Id> </DIMENSION_Id>
I wrote this XSLT to get all information from the parent nodes first, then the child node last to create a full URL. Unfortunately it only gives me the information of the furthest child node...I do not know how to append any other text to it. (it should read something like: furthest-parent/closer-parent/parent/item_selected)
Unfortunately all it does is give me the value of the current node.... Here is the XSLT that I wrote:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> <xsl:output method="text" /> <xsl:template match="/DIMENSION_NODE"> <xsl:for-each select="ancestor-or-self::*"> <xsl:value-of select="@SYN" /><xsl:text>/</xsl:text> <!--<xsl:value-of select="." /> --> <xsl:value-of select="@SYN" /><xsl:text>/</xsl:text> <!-- <xsl:value-of select="." /> --> <xsl:text>woot!</xsl:text> --> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>
Thanks in advance for your help!
