Adding a Count Node to a XSLT Template

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to add a count node to an XSLT template so it increments on every record I transform? So if I pull in a XML with 5 records everything it transforms a record it increments by 1.

You may be thinking of this the wrong way.You can use the XPath count() function to get the total number of nodes in a node set, and you can do so separately from the whole processing. Within processing, you can use position() to get the posistion of a node within a node set, which is sure to increment on each iteration of that node set.The only case where this is not enough would be in a recursive template. In that case, you can add a parameter to the template that defaults to 1. Increment that counter upon making the recursive call.
