How to call another vbscript function within msxsl script ??

Hi,

I have embedded vbscript inside xsl, till now i was calling vbscript function from xsl and it was working fine.

How can i call another vbscript function from that embedded script ?

I tried to call a function using prefix inside vbscript still didn't worked and it give me error like "a semi colon character is expected in line no. xyz "

Here is that line : <msxsl:script language="VBScript" implements-prefix="myPrefix">

Can somone please throw some light on this issue.

Thanks in the anticipation that i will get some hint to solve this.

Regards,
Dipesh

If you're inside the script block executing functionA, and you want to call functionB, you don't need to specify prefixes.  That's only when you call a function from XPath.  You'll have to post a bit more code for us to help.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for replying immediately.

Exactly i did that only and whenever i was making call from xsl part it was working. Then i checked my vbscript which was inside <xsl:msxsl> element and i found that it was conidering characters like "&",  "<" and ">" as xsl/xml specific characters. Because of this i was getting errors and i changed them respectively to &amp; &lt; and &gt; and it then worked for me.

Since my output is text only i thought, it will escape these characters but it does not.

But finally i got my solution.
Thanks for your reply.

A simpler solution for escaping character in script would be to use CDATA tags:

e.g.

<msxsl:script language="VBScript" implements-prefix="myPrefix">
<![CDATA[
    Function AddFullStop(s)
            AddFullStop=s & "."
    End Function
]]>
</msxsl:script>
