    Pass doctype value to url in Xslt

    Hi

    I'm using an accordion menu that can handle a simple "?expandable=[number]" parameter. I want to pass that value in my menu through a doctype property. The number value changes and i want to control i manually.

    I had it working by setting it on the href xsl attribute, but that only worked when i was on that specific page and reloaded it ($currentPage/expandableUrl). Then the url was correct. So somehow i need to pass it into my for-each loop (i guess) so my "parameter" gets indexed immediately and always present on my <li>'s when filled in.

    How do i go about it?

    Clean Xslt:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
    <!ENTITY nbsp "&#x00A0;">
    ]>
    <xsl:stylesheet
    version="1.0"
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:msxml="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
    xmlns:umbraco.library="urn:umbraco.library"
    exclude-result-prefixes="msxml umbraco.library">


    <xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="yes" />

    <xsl:param name="currentPage"/>

    <!-- Input the documenttype you want here -->
    <xsl:variable name="level" select="1"/>

    <xsl:template match="/">

    <!-- The fun starts here -->
    <ul id="topnavigation">
    <xsl:for-each select="$currentPage/ancestor-or-self::* [@level = $level]/* [string(umbracoNaviHide) != '1' and @isDoc]">
    <li>
    <a href="{umbraco.library:NiceUrl(@id)}">
    <xsl:if test="$currentPage/@nodeName = current()/@nodeName">
    <xsl:attribute name="class">selected</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="@nodeName"/>

    </a>
    </li>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </ul>

    </xsl:template>

    </xsl:stylesheet>

    Could you write an examle of the html you want? And maybe for 2 different pages so i can see the difference of the html ( if there is any )

    Hi Anders

    Sure, or i can try to examplify it more in depth:

    I have 4 "main" pages, on each i sell a different product.On each page i have the same accordion menu, but i need a different menu-item expanded on each of these pages.

    So it would look something like this if it worked like i want it to;

    Product page 1 (href="pagename.aspx?expandable=0")
      - Subpage to Productpage 1 - same expandable parameter

    Product page 2 (href="pagename.aspx?expandable=4")
      - Subpage to Productpage 2 - same expandable parameter

    Product page 3 (href="pagename.aspx?expandable=5")
      - Subpage to Productpage 3 - same expandable parameter

    and so forth..

    My frontpage href should look like: www.mysite.dk/pagename.aspx?expandable=0

    Hope that clarifies my original post

    My first post regarding the <li> thing might be a bit misleading. Of course i want the parameter set for the <a> tag, so the parameter gets called when i click a menu link

    Could you traverse up the xml tree until you find a node with the expandableUrl property and use it at the a tag?

    Like

    menuItem/ancestor-or-self::* [./expandableUrl][1]/expandableUrl

    Hi anders

    Actually i don't want to go up or down the three for that value. And i can see now that's my main problem.

    The Xslt below works, but sets all hrefs according to the currentPage parameter value. So i guess i just need an if statement if the parameter field is empty, then it should not output the paramete value-of.

    I'll try to fix it after lunch

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
    <!ENTITY nbsp "&#x00A0;">
    ]>
    <xsl:stylesheet
    version="1.0"
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:msxml="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
    xmlns:umbraco.library="urn:umbraco.library"
    exclude-result-prefixes="msxml umbraco.library">


    <xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="yes" />

    <xsl:param name="currentPage"/>

    <!-- Input the documenttype you want here -->
    <xsl:variable name="level" select="1"/>
    <xsl:variable name="expanded" select="$currentPage/expandedUrl"/>

    <xsl:template match="/">

    <!-- The fun starts here -->
    <ul id="topnavigation">
    <xsl:for-each select="$currentPage/ancestor-or-self::* [@level = $level]/* [string(umbracoNaviHide) != '1' and @isDoc]">
    <li>
    <a>
    <xsl:attribute name="href">
    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:NiceUrl(@id)" /><xsl:value-of select="$expanded" />
    </xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:if test="$currentPage/@nodeName = current()/@nodeName">
    <xsl:attribute name="class">selected</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="@nodeName"/>

    </a>
    </li>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </ul>

    </xsl:template>

    </xsl:stylesheet>

    hmm this proved a bit more of a task than i seem able to handle :/

    If i set the property of my frontpage to have ?expandable=0 to open the first accordion menu item, then the rest of my menu items will have the same url.

    How do i get the other node parameter values to override that of currentPage?

    <xsl:if... isn't really working out for me

    Alright.

    Got i solved with a bit of extra forum reading :-)

    For future usage (if any would ever do this).

    1. Make a property (mine is called "expandedUrl" without the "")

    2. Use following XSLT:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
    <!ENTITY nbsp "&#x00A0;">
    ]>
    <xsl:stylesheet
    version="1.0"
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:msxml="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
    xmlns:umbraco.library="urn:umbraco.library"
    exclude-result-prefixes="msxml umbraco.library">


    <xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="yes" />

    <xsl:param name="currentPage"/>

    <!-- Input the documenttype you want here -->
    <xsl:variable name="level" select="1"/>

    <xsl:template match="/">

    <!-- The fun starts here -->
    <!--<textarea>
    <xsl:copy-of select="$expanded" />
    </textarea>-->

    <ul id="topnavigation">
    <xsl:for-each select="$currentPage/ancestor-or-self::* [@level = $level]/* [string(umbracoNaviHide) != '1' and @isDoc]">
    <li>
    <a>
    <xsl:attribute name="href">
    <xsl:choose>
    <xsl:when test="expandedUrl != '' ">
    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:NiceUrl(@id)" /><xsl:value-of select="expandedUrl" />
    </xsl:when>
    <xsl:otherwise>
    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:NiceUrl(@id)" />
    </xsl:otherwise>
    </xsl:choose>

    </xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:if test="$currentPage/@nodeName = current()/@nodeName">
    <xsl:attribute name="class">selected</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="@nodeName"/>
    </a>
    </li>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </ul>
    </xsl:template>

    </xsl:stylesheet>
