A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

(OP)

Hi

After a long search I found thread 1328351 but it's closed. As k5tm is still active here, I hope he sees this or maybe somebody else can reply.

I integrated the last reply (7 Feb 07 11:28) into my xslt and get it to run without complaints. As I am a beginner I now should find out which part of his code to replace with my field name.

"My" original sort select was:
<xsl:sort select="translate(normalize-space(translation/translations/entry/value),'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzäöüéèàç','ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZAOUEEAC')"/>

But the sort still works when I shorten it to
<xsl:sort select="translation/translations/entry/value"/>
which is what the name field is called in the XML file.

It's normal text, A-Z, what I would like to do is insert a jump navigation so I can navigate to a certain letter in the alphabet, which would be the first letter of translation/translations/entry/value.

---

I will copy k5tm's reply below - my question is: where do I have to replace his "name" with my "translation/translations/entry/value"?

If there is a simpler solution by now I'm not at all against it!

Thank you smile

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

I am still here. Not enough time to study this right now, but will try to come back to this...

(OP)
Thank you. No hurry - it's just the closest I got so far. I would tell you here if I solved it some other way.

"But the sort still works when I shorten it..." is not true, it has to be normalized to sort correctly.

This is the output without the A-Z navigation: swissbib.ch/libraries.

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

(OP)
I just used your faq about grouping for another list with the same input, by the way. Works great, thank you for writing it.

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

Ok, I would need to see a small sample of your XML input document. (I presume it is used to produce the output seen at your link.) It would also be good for you to post your existing XSLT.

And I am slightly confused about exactly what you are asking. If you are asking about the navigation links, the following code lines are used to create the link line, followed by an anchor tag for the letter being started:

CODE

<!-- output the links -->
        <xsl:call-template name="genLinks"/><!--  this template generates the line 
                                            containing the links to all the letters -->

        <!-- the following line creates the anchor tag before the entries beginning with the letter contained in $myChar -->
        <xsl:element name="a"><xsl:attribute name="name"><xsl:value-of select="string($myChar)"/></xsl:attribute></xsl:element>

> And I am slightly confused about exactly what you are asking.

Which part of your code I have to replace with my sort select. I'll copy the XML + XSLT below, but I'm out of office until next Thursday and offline from tomorrow until Wednesday.

Thank you for taking the time to look into this :)

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

Ok, I have had a look at your posts.

Yor XSLT has exactly one sort in it, so lets look at it.

CODE -->

<xsl:for-each select="//library">
           <xsl:sort select="translate(normalize-space(translation/translations/entry/value),'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzäöüéèàç','ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZAOUEEAC')"/> 

The xsl:for-each is going to iterate over the set of <library> nodes. The problem you may be having is that there are multiple translation/translations/entry/value nodes subordinate to each <library> node. Which one do you want to use for determining the sort order? Perhaps you would like to use the one whose language is 'de' rather than the first <value>, in which case you might want to use an XPath expression such as:

CODE

translation/translations/entry[key='de']/value 

Or maybe I am still not understanding what you are asking... ponder What in particular is wrong with your output?

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

(OP)
Nothing wrong with my output as it is, but I would like to introduce an jump navigation (is that the term?), so that I could jump directly to the names that begin with the letter U, for example, instead of having to scroll down: example.

I thought this was what thread 1328351 was solving but maybe I got that wrong?

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

You are correct, that is what that thread (and therefore this thread) is about.

And I understand now what I need to show you. Unfortunately, Thursday is my busiest day, especially in the morning (USA time).

I will return - probably today - with your solution.

No hurry. And thank you! smile

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

Here is a solution, which you should study and if not clear to you, ask questions.

I moved the formatting of an individual library into a called template, so that the link generation logic is more obvious.

I would suggest also that you use the xsl:output mechanism for output of the DOCTYPE declaration. I have chosen HTML 4.01 strict for the DOCTYPE; adjust as you see fit.

My technique outputs navigation links only for those letters that actually appear in the data. If you want a list of all letters, then a slightly different technique will be needed, and you need to decide whether there will be href values for all the letters, or whether only those letters that exist in the data will have href values.

Let me know how this works for you...

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

It works! big smile

Copying the code here had turned ..."translate(road,'&quot;','')" to ..."translate(road,'"','')"

but I can't see a way to edit a post.

I added a <br /> after <xsl:template name="genLinks">, now it looks great. Will be online soon.

I think all the keywords are covered, so others also have a chance of finding this.

Thank you again, this is exactly what I was looking for.

RE: A-Z list links (qid=1328351 cont.)

Yes I had the same problem with that same line when I copied your code into my XSLT debugger. It was correct going into the post. Such is the problem of trying to process XML through a complex system. I am on the 'advisory board' for Tek-Tips, so I will report this problem to the technical guys.

And, by the way, welcome to Tek-Tips!

It looks like you can code an:

inside the code box.

Here is an attempt:

CODE --> XML

<anelement attrib="&quot;"/> 

It works on the preview. Pressing Submit Post button...

Thank you. I'm glad i found it.

Could you advise them to introduce an edit button?

Could you advise them to introduce an edit button?

That is on the list of desired features. Not too close to the top of the list, though.
