Hi Buddhi,

In your code, you match VisualObject and there it stops: you select the value of the contents (which is always a string), you create a variable (but don't use it) and there\'s no new apply templates. So the expected result from your code (without me actually running it) would be the stringized value of your VisualObject nodes.

Your first question: what Attribute do you mean? There's no node named "Attribute" and the only actual attribute I see is @xsi:type. Which you can access by using "@xsi:type" syntax:

<xsl:value-of select="@xsi:type" />

Your second question: this can be done by using the copy template (which you already have) and removing or changing the template for VisualObject (see my remark above: it misses an apply-templates to continue the matching process). After that, you add, for instance:

<xsl:template match="Name[. = 'ChamferedRectangle']">

Dear All,

Following is my partial XSLT,

1. I am not able to access Attribute for changing it
2. How do I extract only "ChamferedRectangle" and place "Fillet"

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
<xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
<xsl:template match="@* | node()">
<xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()"/>

   <xsl:template match="VisualObject[@xsi:type='CChamferEx']">		
			<xsl:variable name="attribute" select = '.'/>
			<xsl:value-of select="CFilletEx"/>

Dear All, I want to transform following using XSLT 1.0

<VisualObject xsi:type="CChamferEx">
       <Address>Laser Job.Layer.ChamferedRectangle1</Address>

And get the output like this:

<VisualObject xsi:type="CFilletEx">
       <Address>Laser Job.Layer.Fillet1</Address>

Here are the things associated with this,

1. Attribute Change
2. Change last part on DOT separated value (I need to keep the last
value with the "Fillet" like [Fillet1] - in the sample number "one") 3. Change the Chamfer to Fillet, but need to keep the last number like
above case.

Please help me on this.
