Subject: [xsl] problem with substring() From: Rahil <qamar_rahil@xxxxxxxxxxx> Date: Wed, 27 Apr 2005 13:03:41 +0100
I cant understand what Ive done wrong with my code that I aint getting
<xsl:variable name="Val" select="text()"/>
<testVar><xsl:value-of select="$Val"/></testVar> <!--Prints the output
<xsl:variable name="firstVal" select="substring-before($Val,' ')"/>
<!--empty result instead of 'hello'-->
<xsl:variable name="secondVal" select="substring-after($Val,' ')"/>
<!--empty result instead of 'there'-->
Ive tried using another delimiter such 'a' in the substring() method and
that works but not a space. Ive been regularly using this criteria in my
other files and Ive had no problem. I even tried typeasting text() and
Val to type string() but that dint work either. The problem seems to be
in the space delimiter.
Ive tried everything I could to check why it isnt working but cant
figure it out.
