xsl:include example

Steve Muench

If I'm understanding what you want:

a reusable "chunk" of tags and <xsl:***> elements
that is responsible for handling the formatting for the "ChargeListRSQ" block of your source document
In a way that allows the "chunk" of tags to use xpath expressions that are relative to the "ChargeListRSQ"
Without mentioning a particular XML file that <ChargeListRSQ> "lives in"...

Then an <xsl:template> can do all these for you.

Let's say your data looks like this:

     <Charge id="1">ABC</Charge>
     <Charge id="2">DEF</Charge>

Then you can create a "tab.xsl" stylesheet with a template whose match pattern is match="ChargeListRSQ", and it will

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">

   <!-- This template handles ChargeListRSQ "block" -->
   <xsl:template match='ChargeListRSQ'>
     <table border="1">
        <xsl:for-each select="Charge">
             <td><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></td>
             <td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td>


and then include "tab.xsl" into another main stylesheet like "main.xsl"...

  <xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>

  <xsl:include href="tab.xsl"/>

  <xsl:template match="/">


And by the magic of the "Apply Templates" processing, when it comes time for handle the formatting for the <ChargeListRSQ> in the source, your template will "fire" and your reusable chunk of tags will kick in.


xsl:include with device:file under Windows

Is it possible to call xsl-StyleSheet from a different XSl-StyleSheet

> href="C:/Portal/com/vizional/portal/xsl/head.xsl"

The href attribute to xsl:include must be a URL, not a filename. Prefixing it with "file:/" should work. (No-one seems to know how many slashes are correct, but it seems to work anyway).
