USCSXSL.Apply

Previous Next

Applies a specific, non-default transformation to an XML input document and returns the result.

The input document may contain calls to USCSXSL extension functions (this is an added possibility compared to calling USXSL.Apply2File).

If you use USCSXSL to process a USoft Blend script, then you apply to this script the default Batch.1.0.xsl transformation. Do this not by calling USCSXSL.Apply() but rather by calling USCSXSL.Blend().

Syntax

select uscsxsl.apply( xml, xsl  [ , variable-name, variable-value ... ] )
 
xml  :=  { xml-filepath | xml-document }
xsl  :=  ( xsl-filepath | xsl-document }

All arguments are single-quoted string values.

The required xml must be a valid XML document. This document may contain calls to USCSXSL extension functions.  You can submit this XML document either as a file on the file system that you reference by xml-filepath or inline as a literal xml-document string.

The required xsl must be a valid XSLT 1.0 transformation. You can submit this transformation either as a file on the file system that you reference by xsl-filepath or inline as a literal xsl-document string.

Optionally, you can pass any number of Blend input parameters as variable-name=variable-value pairs.

Example

select uscsxsl.apply( '<MyClipboardNow/>', 'c:\temp\PrintClipboard.xsl' )

If the file content of the "c:\temp\PrintClipboard.xsl" file is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 
  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  xmlns:clipboard="USoft:ClipBoard"
>
<xsl:output method="xml" encoding="UTF-8" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
 
<xsl:template match="*|@*|comment()|processing-instruction()|text()">
  <xsl:copy>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="*|@*|text()|comment()|processing-instruction()"/>
  </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>
 
<xsl:template match="MyClipboardNow">
  <xsl:copy>
    <xsl:value-of select="clipboard:GetText()"/>
  </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>
 
</xsl:stylesheet>

and your clipboard currently contains "Hello World", then the result of the transformation is:

<MyClipboardNow>Hello World</MyClipboardNow>
