Help performing a relative XSLT transformation

I have this page:
http://pdn.sieris.com/sieris/core8/example-page.php

in the XML I have:
<block>
      <text>
            random number -&gt; 760<br/>And 8 line breaks.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>textbox ->
      </text>
      <textbox>
            <name>address</name>
      </textbox>
</block>



Then I have this as my XSLT:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:output doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" doctype-system="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
      <xsl:include href="widgets/block.xslt"/>
      <xsl:include href="widgets/textbox.xslt"/>
      <xsl:include href="widgets/text.xslt"/>
      <xsl:template name="widgets">
            <xsl:param name="thisNode"/>
            <xsl:for-each select="$thisNode/child::block">
                  <xsl:call-template name="block">
                        <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                  </xsl:call-template>
            </xsl:for-each>
            <xsl:for-each select="$thisNode/child::textbox">
                  <xsl:call-template name="textbox">
                        <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                  </xsl:call-template>
            </xsl:for-each>
            <xsl:for-each select="$thisNode/child::text">
                  <xsl:call-template name="text">
                        <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                  </xsl:call-template>
            </xsl:for-each>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>


Problem is... this is my output:
<div><input name="address" type="text">random number -&gt; 98<br>And 9 line breaks. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>textbox -&gt;</div>


Please help... I want everything to transform at it's current location. No matter how "deep" of a node it is. I want to be able to put these elements inside of each other with no limit.
Notice that the textbox is showing up before everything else. It is not showing up after the "text". The only part that is working correctly is that is is showing up within the "block", which is the div tag.

Hi phobis,

having three for-each statements, you pull the nodes out of order
if you want to keep them in sync you will need something like this

          <xsl:for-each select="$thisNode/block | $thisNode/textbox | $thisNode/text">
                <xsl:choose>
                    <xsl:when test="name() = 'block'">
                          <xsl:call-template name="block">
                                <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                           </xsl:call-template>
                    </xsl:when>
                    <xsl:when test="name() = 'textbox '">
                          <xsl:call-template name="'textbox">
                                <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                           </xsl:call-template>
                    </xsl:when>
                    <xsl:when test="name() = block">
                          <xsl:call-template name="block">
                                <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                           </xsl:call-template>
                    </xsl:when>
                </xsl:choose>
          </xsl:for-each>

This way, you don't change the order

Cheers!

Hi Gerton,

I tried your example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:output doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" doctype-system="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
      <xsl:include href="widgets/block.xslt"/>
      <xsl:include href="widgets/textbox.xslt"/>
      <xsl:include href="widgets/text.xslt"/>
      <xsl:template name="widgets">
            <xsl:param name="thisNode"/>
            <xsl:for-each select="$thisNode/block | $thisNode/textbox | $thisNode/text">
                <xsl:choose>
                    <xsl:when test="name()='block'">
                          <xsl:call-template name="block">
                                <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                           </xsl:call-template>
                    </xsl:when>
                    <xsl:when test="name()='textbox'">
                          <xsl:call-template name="textbox">
                                <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                           </xsl:call-template>
                    </xsl:when>
                    <xsl:when test="name()='block'">
                          <xsl:call-template name="block">
                                <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                           </xsl:call-template>
                    </xsl:when>
                </xsl:choose>
          </xsl:for-each>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>


Now my output looks like this:
<div><input name="address" type="text"></div>

It should look like this:
<div>random number -&gt; 98<br>And 9 line breaks. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>textbox -&gt;<input name="address" type="text"></div>

it is currently at:
http://pdn.sieris.com/sieris/core8/example-page.php
(which seems to only work in Firefox right now, due to some javascript on the page that needs to be fixed)

LOL, sorry.

This was my fault... I did not see that
<xsl:when test="name()='block'">
                 <xsl:call-template name="block">
                         <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
                  </xsl:call-template>
</xsl:when>

Was listed twice  :)

I changed the second "block" block to be "text"

thank you!!! it all works now :)
