Complex XSLt query for Data Viewer web part in Sharepoint

Hello,

I am using Data Viewer Web part to show data from a sharepoint list after applying certain conditions to it.

As per my initial requirement, I was supposed to show data from the list that satisfied the below criteria:

<xsl:variable name="Rows" select="/dsQueryResponse/Rows/Row[contains(normalize-space(@Program), 'BCare') and contains(normalize-space(@Functional_x0020_Unit), 'ClientServices')]" />

I created this as an xslt in the 'Filter' ->Add xslt filtering feature of Dataview Webpart using SPD.The above line got rendered on the Code view of the page.

Now as per the new requirement, I have to add some additional logic. There is a check box field in my list 'Private Flag'.I believe Check Box fields are boolean values.

If <Private Flag> is checked, then do not use the above xslt when retreiving data, else use the above xslt for retreiving data.

I created the following below and replaced the portion of code view with "<xsl:variable name="Rows" select="/dsQueryResponse/Rows/Row[contains(normalize-space(@Program), 'BCare') and contains(normalize-space(@Functional_x0020_Unit), 'ClientServices')]" />",

with my new code:

<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="@Private_x0020_Flag = 1">  
<xsl:variable name="Rows" select="/dsQueryResponse/Rows/Row[contains(normalize-space(@Program), 'Care') and contains(normalize-space(@Functional_x0020_Unit), 'ClientServices')]" />
</xsl:when>  
<xsl:otherwise></xsl:otherwise></xsl:choose>

This does not work and gives an error on rendering the data view web part.I am very new to xslt.Please suggest what is going wrong here.

I know nothing about Sharepoint, but things were looking quiet in this thread, so I did a bit of hunting.

Based on this thread:

I get the impression that checkboxes are not boolean, but carry a text value (presumably the content of the checkbox element's value attribute). So if your checkbox is something like

<input type="checkbox" name="Private Flag" value="hitMe" />

maybe your XSLT needs to read something like <xsl:when test="@Private_x0020_Flag = 'hitMe'">

Just a stab in the dark, though.

This works:

<xsl:variable name="Rows" select="/dsQueryResponse/Rows/Row[  (@Private_x0020_Flag = '0') or  (contains(@Program, 'Care') and contains(@Functional_x0020_Unit, 'ClientServices') and (@Private_x0020_Flag = '1')) ]" />
