Linking dynamic HTML tables to XML with DSO
Posted on 2000-02-21
This has been bugging me all day...
I have the following embedded XML layout:
This works JUST FINE when I make a table like this:
The problem arises if I try to add a "header" section to the report, like this:
In this layout, I can't seem to get to the data. I am guessing it has something to do with the data island structure, but I haven't read ANYTHING that says you can't have the layout like this. Unfortunately, the only examples I can find are either really simple, or obscenely complicated. Also, most of the examples were written for IE4 with the Java DSO stuff. I don't want to have to do a bunch of scripting just to lay out a simple little DHTML table.
I have tried messing with the DATAFLD attribute of the table, but I just can't seem to dig into the data if the Report element has any sibling-level elements (<ReportHeader> in the above example). Does anyone know of a simple (DHTML-only based) solution, or does the DSO linked data have to be linked by an element that has no sibling-level elements?
Thanks very much!
