    Only show popup when cookie doesn't have a value

    Hi all,

    I trying to make a popup that only should be visible if a specific cookie doesn't have a value. So far I don't have succes. Can any of you tell me what is wrong?

    <xsl:if test="umbraco.library:RequestCookies('deal') = ''">
      <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:setCookie('deal', '1')"/>
      <div class="sd-popup-container">
        <a href="#"><xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetDictionaryItem('Close')"/></a>
        <!--Popup content here-->

    Thank you

    Hi Kasper

    Just a guess...

    <xsl:if test="string(umbraco.library:RequestCookies('deal')) = ''">

    Hi Nigel,

    Thank you for taking your time to help me out.

    But I have solved it just now:

      <xsl:variable name="cv" select="umbraco.library:RequestCookies('deal')"/><xsl:value-of select="$cv"/>
      <xsl:if test="$cv != '1'">
        <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:setCookie('deal', '1')"/>
        <!--Content here-->

    The trick is to store the cookie value in a variable before asking what it contains.
