    Retrieve Selected Values in Checkbox List + XSLT

    Confused: Is there XSLT syntax to pull out which items were checked?

    Datatype - Checkbox list attached to Member Profile

    If I look in ContentXML I see a list of ALL the checkbox items.  In cmsPropertyData I can see in here are the items that were selected ie 1157, 1158 etc. 

    <xsl:variable name="prefsToSplit" select="umbraco.library:GetCurrentMember()/data [@alias='SpecialtyWatch']"/> will give a list of all "SpecialtyWatch" items.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    Have a look at the umbraco library functions split and getPreValueAsString

    Split will allow you split a comma seperated string like a list of prevalue ids and it will return a chunk of xml that represents the values.  You can then iterate through those ids and use GetPreValueAsString to get the text value.

     

    something like this

    <xsl:variable name="items" select="umbraco.library:Split($prefsToSplit,',')" />
    <xsl:for-each select="$items//value">
       <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetPreValueAsString(current())"/>
    </xsl:for-each>

     

    Hope that helps.


    Peter

    Peter thanks heaps for your posts.  I am even more confused now....

    If I now do the following the "checked" items now display correctly.  I could have sworn I did the same yesterday and it was spitting out all the items not just the checked ones.  Anyhow seems to be working which is good.

    <xsl:for-each select="umbraco.library:GetCurrentMember()/data [@alias='SpecialtyWatch']">
    <xsl:value-of select="."/>
    </xsl:for-each>

     
    Thanks for your help.

    Okay I found the issue.  If I save the checkbox from inside umbraco control panel it works as expected.  If I do it from the front end its saving correctly but its not republishing correctly so the changes are reflected client side.

    Thanks,
    Matthew
