SharePoint XSL Editor

Hi experts!

I have a XSL tag and I added a parameter behind the URL.

I did so and there is an error.

<xsl:when test="@ContentType='Process'">
<a href="http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&Source=http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/AllItems.aspx">
<xsl:value-of select="@FileLeafRef"/>
</a>
 </xsl:when>
                           

I added - &Source=http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/AllItems.aspx


Please advise.

I said to replace the & sign with

&amp;

So the code would be

<xsl:when test="@ContentType='Process'">
<a href="http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&amp;Source=http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/AllItems.aspx">
<xsl:value-of select="@FileLeafRef"/>
</a>
 </xsl:when>

I have no idea what that link will do. The syntax does not make much sense to me. Why are you adding the address of a list view as a parameter when you open a list item in the display form?

Therefore, please first confirm that the link you are creating is actually doing what you want it to do: in your web browser, enter this link manually (or copy and paste from here):

http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=1&Source=http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/AllItems.aspx

This is for the list item with ID number 1. Please replace it with another item ID if 1 is not a suitable item ID for the test.

Please don't tack on additional questions.
>>  and also need to ensure it is the max size window opened in new.

That has nothing to do with your question about the parameter.

Hello,

If you have verified that the URL works when you manually type it in, then it is probably the & sign in the address that's the problem. Try replacing the & sign with the text

&amp;

The & sign has special meaning in the XSL and introduces a special character, like

&nbsp;  -- non breaking space
&quot;  -- a double quote
&lt;  -- the lesser than sign <
&amp; -- the ampersand sign.

cheers, teylyn

So it's

&amp;Source=http://k1.zone1.company.net/sites/sg/k1_sg/Pro/Forms/AllItems.aspx"

is this correct?
