Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Conditional logic, part of XML Essential Training.
- One of the more powerful capabilities of XSLT…is the ability to apply style sheet templates…based upon the values of the incoming XML data.…And that's what we're going to look at in this example.…So let's open up conditional_logic.xml…and also open conditional_logic.xslt…So this is the same XML file that…we've been using previous example.…So there's an items root tag and it has…a collection of item tags underneath it.…
And the contents of the XSLT style sheet…should start to look familiar by now.…So this is the xsl:for-each tag…I introduced in the previous exercise.…And there's a select statement here…which is using an xpath expression…to match all the item tags in the document.…So what we're going to do is apply…some conditional logic to the data.…So the appearance of each item in the output…will look slightly different based upon…the data in the source.…So I'll add some code for that.…What I'm going to do is use the xsl:if tag to do this.…
And that comes along with a test attribute.…And I'm going to test the available attribute.…
