Displaying XML Using XSLT - GeeksforGeeks.
In this tutorial, let us convert XML to HTML using XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) language. It is very simple to convert XML to any other formats such as HTML, plain text, etc. using XSLT.
You can create an XML tree, create an XmlReader from the XML tree, create a new document, and create an XmlWriter that will write into the new document. Then, you can invoke the XSLT transformation, passing the XmlReader and XmlWriter to the transformation.
There are two kinds of XSLT scripts: inline XSLT and XSLT call templates. When you select either in the Select script type dropdown in the Configure Scripting Functoid dialog box, sample code appears that you may use. Inline XSLT scripts and inline XSLT call templates may call functions in external assemblies.
I tried your code in complete new empty files, the code worked very fine! BUT ( :-( ) in my existing files it doesn't work. I think it depends on the body-tag - I already have a Body tag in my XSL file. I have adapted the code a little bit, like you can see below.
The .xsl file extension is not directly associated with just a single application. This is because it is mostly known as a file format defining the text styles, charts and tables as well as other XML document objects.xsl files are a bit the same with .css files that most HTML documents use and there are a lot of applications used to open these files since this format supports almost all.
I like this because I don't have to bother with all the formatting codes of HTML, I can just write with a simple set of tags in XML and let the stylesheet take care of the rest. I can also use XSLT do tasks like automatically generate a table of contents for each article. So as 2001 went on I became steadily more skilled in this environment, and figured out how bend XSLT to my will. It.
I assume you know how to write HTML? If not. you will really need to go back to basics and learn HTML or you will really struggle! Have a look at their for-each example which should help you create your drop down list, if you are still stuck, please post the code you have written into this forum thread and I am sure someone ( maybe me if I am still around ) will try and help you :) Good luck.
