Dynamic Link in XSLT?

Hi All.

In my xslt, I need to have a hyperlink that links to
a)a new window (300w * 500h)
b)sends a querystring to that window based on a node value in the xml.

Usually, when doing straight ASP, I'd use Javascript and put the variable in the querystring.

I tried this, to no avail:

<a href="javascript:new_window('display_invoice.asp?Document="<xsl:value-of select="document"/>"')">
                    <xsl:value-of select="document"/>
</a>

Any ideas??

Thanks!

I assume you have a function like:

function new_window(sUrl)
{
var oNewWindow = window.open(sUrl, "ClassyWindow", "heght=500, width=300")
}

This might be in your XSLT, or it mignt be in a Javascript file loaded from a <link> tag.

Yes, I have that.

How can I code the variable for the document number into the link?

I don't know what you mean by document number.  There is a node in the XML like <document> that you're using for this?  Or is "document" a variable name?  You're not talking about the XPath document() function, right?

Try putting just the element in curly braces:
<a href="javascript:new_window('display_invoice.asp?Document={document}/>')"/>
                   <xsl:value-of select="document"/>

Or else you should use an xsl:attribute tag to create the href attribute.
<a>
<xsl:attribute name="href">javascript:new_window('display_invoice.asp?Document="<xsl:value-of select="document"/>"')
</xsl:attribute>
</a>
I'm not sure about whether all the quotes and tags come out right, perhaps you can try it out.

Thanks to you both!

The xsl:attribute did the trick.
