Re: XSLT Stylesheet test for special character

Hello,

( 4 ) <xsl:value-of select="ns:strong"/>

does not do anything, except dumping the text content of ns:strong into the output. If you want to use that value, you have to set a variable with that, like :
<xsl:variable name="value" select="ns:strong/text()"/>

Try that with a XSLT debugger, see what you have in that variable, and then you can try something like :

<xsl:when test="contains($value, 'Firstname:')">

Be aware that if you do text() when current node is <ns:p> (you previously did <xsl:for-each select="/ns:html/ns:body/ns:div[@id='content']/ns:p">), you obtain the concatenation of recursively applying text() on all the children node of <ns:p> so you will have white spaces, content of markup <a>, etc...

Use a debugger ! (Oxygen has a great one)

Regards
Nico

Hi Bjoern,

 

Neither did string(.) = 'Firstname:' or  text() = 'Firstname:' work hence it branched to the otherwise option instead.

Thanks for trying anyway,

 

Jack

Your test looks for a <Firstname:> child element, which cannot exist.
You have to compare the string value of the strong element to the string
'Firstname:', e.g. using

  string(.) = 'Firstname:'

or

  text() = 'Firstname:'

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
