I have some XML code that looks like this
<SEARCHRESULTS> <FUNCTION name="BarGraph"> <PARAMETER name="numList"></PARAMETER> <PARAMETER name="maxValue"></PARAMETER> <CODE>Some code</CODE> </FUNCTION> </SEARCHRESULTS>
And I want to extract a list of parameter names for each function, so far I've got the following xsl code
<xsl:for-each select="SEARCHRESULTS/FUNCTION"> <ROW> <COL><DATA><xsl:value-of select="@name" /></DATA></COL> <COL><DATA><xsl:value-of select="PARAMETER/@name" /></DATA></COL> <COL><DATA><xsl:value-of select="CODE" /></DATA></COL> </ROW> </xsl:for-each>
which of course returns the name of the first parameter along with the function name and code.
I want a list of all the parameters for the function in a text string. Return separated is best, but as long as all the names are in the string I can parse it later on.
I could normalise the parameter records out in the target database – but I'm not going to, I just need them for display purposes really so I don't want to put too much effort in. This is why I'm looking for a simple text string.
I thought there might be some way of just putting an asterisk in or something. If not I'll create a variable and add another for-each to build a string – but it just seems like there should be a simpler way
The resulting XML should look like
<ROW> <COL><DATA>BarGraph</DATA></COL> <COL><DATA>numList;maxValue</DATA></COL> <COL><DATA>Some code</DATA></COL> </ROW>
Where the ';' in the second column could be a carriage return or another character that I can specify
