XSL break table after a certain number or columns

Hello Experts,

I am sure there is an easy way of doing this but I need to be able to break a table into a new raw after a certain number of columns.

Here is my code:

<td align="center" valign="middle">
<a href="{aspdnsf:ProductLink(ProductID, SEName, $EntityID, $EntityName)}">
<xsl:value-of select="aspdnsf:LookupImage(ProductID, 'product', 'icon', 1)" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
</a>
<br/>
<a href="{aspdnsf:ProductLink(ProductID, SEName, $EntityID, $EntityName)}">
<xsl:value-of select="$vName" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
</a>
</td>

Basically what I want to do is every time the column reaches a certain number (lets say 3) then the table breaks into a new raw and continues displaying the content on a new raw.

I know there is a way to do it with the XSL position() function but I can't seem to figure out how to implement that into my code.

Thank you all in advance.

Hi datzent83,
> there is an easy way of doing this

well, this is always a bit tricky.
If the number of columns is fixed there is a little trick you can do
If you want to keep the number of columns dynamic,
you will need recursion

I will show you an example with 3 columns
For this I assume you have a list of Product elements that all have a ProductID and an SEName
I assume the $EntityID to be global, but you can have it local in the loop as well

   <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:for-each select="//Product[position() mod 3 = 1]">
            <tr>
                <xsl:call-template name="processCell">
                    <xsl:with-param name="thisProductID" select="ProductID"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="thisSEName" select="SEName"/>
                </xsl:call-template>
                <xsl:call-template name="processCell">
                    <xsl:with-param name="thisProductID" select="following-sibling::Product[1]/ProductID"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="thisSEName" select="following-sibling::Product[1]/SEName"/>
                </xsl:call-template>
                <xsl:call-template name="processCell">
                    <xsl:with-param name="thisProductID" select="following-sibling::Product[2]/ProductID"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="thisSEName" select="following-sibling::Product[2]/SEName"/>
                </xsl:call-template>
            </tr>
        </xsl:for-each>
       
    </xsl:template>
   
    <xsl:template name="processCell">
        <xsl:param name="thisProductID"/>
        <xsl:param name="thisSEName"/>
        <td align="center" valign="middle">
            <a href="{aspdnsf:ProductLink($thisProductID, $thisSEName, $EntityID, $EntityName)}">
                <xsl:value-of select="aspdnsf:LookupImage($thisProductID, 'product', 'icon', 1)" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
            </a>
            <br/>
            <a href="{aspdnsf:ProductLink($thisProductID, $thisSEName, $EntityID, $EntityName)}">
                <xsl:value-of select="$vName" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
            </a>
        </td>
       
    </xsl:template>

What happens here?
<xsl:for-each select="//Product[position() mod 3 = 1]">
selects the first, the fourth, the seventh etc... of your Product elements
This is the frame to create your rows
Inside the rows I go looking for the next Product: following-sibling::Product[1]
 and the Product after the next Product: following-sibling::Product[2]

I externalise the actual cell processing to a named template that takes the specific nodes as a parameter

Cheers!

Hello Gertone

I am having some difficulties implementing your code into my XML Package. I pasted my whole code below, can you please make the appropriate changes in that code?

datzent83,
> <xsl:apply-templates select="/root/Products/Product"></xsl:apply-templates>

put the  <xsl:for-each select="//Product[position() mod 3 = 1]">
loop where currently the apply-templates is

put the <xsl:template name="processCell">
somewhere in your stylesheet and it should work

Hello Geert,

I have applied the code the way you instructed, but I am getting an error which I have never seen before.

This is the error that I am getting:
Exception=Last Trace Point=[]. An error occurred during a call to extension function 'ProductLink'. See InnerException for a complete description of the error.

Below is the code with your instructions. Please take a look at it and let me know what the problem is:

I don't see a definition for this external function
aspdnsf:ProductLink
There is no definition for the other external functions either,
Productlink just happended to be the first one around

you need to implement the functions
something like
      <msxsl:script language="JScript" implements-prefix="aspdnsf">
      <![CDATA[
            function ProductLink()
            {
                                ....
            }
      ]]>
      </msxsl:script>

or something similar if you are not using msxml

Hello Geert,

With your help I have figured out how I can implement the loop into my code. Please take a look at what I have done at the code below. It is not exactly what you have suggested, but it worked. I will however accept your answer as correct! :-)

<xsl:template match="Product">
      <xsl:if test="position()  mod 4 = 1">
            <tr>
                  <xsl:for-each select=". | following-sibling::*[position() &lt; 4]">
                        <xsl:call-template name="ProductCell"></xsl:call-template>
                  </xsl:for-each>
           </tr>
      </xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

Thank you for your help!!!

wellcome,

what you have done is a smart way of avoiding to copy/paste all the template calls, looks nice

cheers
