Hi Ragulf,

Actualy the HTML page that I am producing has a drilldown facility.
When the page is called for the first time only the level one data is shown with closing folder
picture. When the folder is clicked then the next level data is shown.

To get this working the javascript, that we have, needs IDs like that.

Best Regards.

Hi Arun,

Why do you need the id to contain its parents id as well?

You have a function, generate-id(), which generates a unique id on a node.

If you need an id like what you state, you will need to do something like this (a variation of identity template):

<xsl:template match="*">
<xsl:variable name="special-id">
<xsl:for-each select="ancestor-or-self::*">
<xsl:value-of select="generate-id(.)"/>
<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
<xsl:attribute name="ID"><xsl:value-of select="$special-id"/></xsl:attribute>

Is the above what you need?
