    Contour problem getting data

    Hi,

    I need to make a for-each loop using this in my XSLT, getting data from #Form_name
    <xsl:for-each select="umbraco.contour:GetApprovedRecordsFromPage(1145)//#Form_name/values/value">
    But I get this error when I try to save: Unexpected token '#' in the expression. 
    I've tried with this <![CDATA[ ]]> but with no luck.

    If I try getting data from this - 'email' I get all the data, so all other code seems to be working.

     

    I can't remove the # because it seems that I don't get previous data then.

    Can anyone help me get around it?

     

    Best regards 
    Palle

    Hi Palle,

    You can't use the hash character like that in an XPath expression - are you trying to get to a specific field? Do you have the fieldname in some variable? (Are you trying to get it from the Dictionary/Cookies/Query?)

    If you have the fieldname somewhere, you can use a predicate, like this:

    <xsl:variable name="fieldName" select="'EmailOptions'" />
    <xsl:for-each select="umbraco.contour:GetApprovedRecordsFromPage(1145)//*[name() = $fieldName]/values/value">
    

    (Note the single-quotes inside the variable's select - they're important!)

    Hi Chriztian.

    I'm trying to get it from a field in Contour.

    Now I have this but it returns no data.
    Can you see why?

    <xsl:variable name="fieldName" select="'#Form_name'"/>    

        <xsl:variable name="names">      
         <xsl:for-each select="umbraco.contour:GetApprovedRecordsFromPage(1145)//*[name() = $fieldName]/values/value">          
            <xsl:choose>
              <xsl:when test="position() != last()">
                <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">"</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="."/><xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">", </xsl:text>
              </xsl:when>
              <xsl:otherwise>
                <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">"</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="."/><xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">"</xsl:text>
              </xsl:otherwise>
            </xsl:choose>        
          </xsl:for-each>        
        </xsl:variable>
      
      <xsl:copy-of select="$names"/>

    Ahh, my mistake. I've mistyped the fieldname.
    I got it working.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Palle,

    You need to check that #Form_name thing - that can't be the name used in the XML from Contour...

    Where do you get #Form_name from? Is it the name of the form, or a field on the form?

    BTW: Here's a much shorter XSLT snippet that does the same:

    <xsl:variable name="fieldName" select="'#Form_name'" />
    <xsl:variable name="quote">"</xsl:variable>
    
    <xsl:variable name="names">      
        <xsl:for-each select="umbraco.contour:GetApprovedRecordsFromPage(1145)//*[name() = $fieldName]/values/value">
            <xsl:value-of select="concat($quote, ., $quote)" />
            <xsl:if test="not(position() = last())">, </xsl:if>
        </xsl:for-each>
    </xsl:variable>
