Hi Gertone,
is there a way to tokenize a given String, seperated by e.g. ';'???
If I have a XSL variable $output with content 'c:\test;d:\test2...', I want to loop each of these entries.
Ciao

Hi go4java,

You need to deal with this recursively
- pass the string to a template
- deal with the substring-before the ;
- pass the part behind the ; to the same template, until you are done

I ll draft you an example in a second

Cheers!

go4java,

put your string in a <test> element and use this
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
    <xsl:template match="test">
        <xsl:call-template name="handlePart">
            <xsl:with-param name="part" select="."/>
        </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:template>
    <xsl:template name="handlePart">
        <xsl:param name="part"/>
        <xsl:choose>
            <xsl:when test="contains($part, ';')">
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($part, ';')"/><!-- do something with the part here -->
                <xsl:call-template name="handlePart">
                    <xsl:with-param name="part" select="substring-after($part, ';')"/>
                </xsl:call-template>
            </xsl:when>
            <xsl:otherwise>
                <xsl:value-of select="$part"/><!-- do something with the part here -->
             </xsl:otherwise>
        </xsl:choose>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
