Hello Jarkko,

you must use the extension function evaluate() for it. There is no other possibility to evaluate an XPath expression dynamically.

Furthermore you have to process the string with a recursive template, so that you have access to the substrings

1. /cbroker/XMLServ/XMLHan?command=list&amp;period=
2. {/XDocList/@view}                                     => evaluate()
3. &amp;count=
4. {/XDocList/@offset}                                   => evaluate()
5. &amp;orderby=date&amp;status=1

I have a situation which I encountered this morning and I got stuck with it.

I have a main xslt file into which I import other xslt files and
data from several xml files.

The problem is generic linkvalue in the result html file.
In the main xslt file i have:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>

<xsl:import href="Sort_Notunsigned.xml" />
<xsl:import href="recent.xsl" />
<xsl:import href="statistics.xsl" />
<xsl:import href="viewcommands.xsl" />
<xsl:import href="sortcommands.xsl" />

Here the line where I import Sort_Notunsigned.xml contains
lines like this:


As you can see, it is a linkvalue /command to be sended on click

The value of <sortbydateasc> is called by a variable in sortcommands.xsl (which is imported to main xslt)like this:

<xsl:variable name="dateasc">  		

No the problem is obvious. When the value comes from xml file, the part where it should get {/XDocList/@view} from the input xml file, it does not do it. Same thing with {/XDocList/@offset}.

I think it would be possible to do it if the commands.xml would be commands.xsl?

Reason why I have separated the transformation into several files, is that I want to make it easier to maintain and change the commmand values in one place and have the affect
in several places.
