    Xpath to specify source node from parent property


    i have a multi language site [each language under seperate node] with a product picker for which i use the tree picker.

    i have a product source picker in the site homepage for each language which allows me to specify the node containing the products for that language site.

    i am trying to reference that node using xpath:

    $currentParent/ancestor-or-self::node [@level = 1]/data [@alias = 'prodSource']

    in short this does not work, though the xpath is correct.

    is it possible to do this currently???

    I assume you are using Umbraco v 4.0.*?

    The Xslt looks alright to me (any reason why you need to use $currentParent here?), how about giving this a shot:


    or how about

    $currentPage/ancestor-or-self::node[data[@alias='prodSource'] != '']/...

    Hope that helps somehow,

    yes to the version question - v4.0.x, BUT still no joy.

    it seems possible to identify a node using XSLT but not to use a property of a document in the node tree as a reference to identify the required node.


    any other suggestions?
