XSLT - String manipulation

XSLT - String manipulation

XSLT - String manipulation

Good Day,

The variable ref contains a value that might or might not contain a period and the following code fails on the last line.



 <xsl:when test="contains($ref,'.')">
      <xsl:variable name="refCut6" select="substring-before($ref, '.')"  />

      <xsl:variable name="refCut6" select="$ref"  />


<xxx><xsl:value-of select="$refCut6"/></xxx>

Any ideas?



RE: XSLT - String manipulation

This makes $refCut6 in-scope.

<xsl:variable name="refCut6">
    <xsl:when test="contains($ref,'.')">
      <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($ref, '.')"  />
      <xsl:value-of select="$ref"  />
<xxx><xsl:value-of select="$refCut6"/></xxx>
