   Re: [xml-dev] XSLT & XPATH absolute path

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The ancestor-or-self:: axis pretty much gives you that information.

Assuming your node is an element named "findme", you can do something like this:

<xsl:template match="findme">
   <xsl:for-each select="ancestor-or-self::*">
      <xsl:value-of select="name()"/><xsl:text>/</xsl:text>

An xsl:choose can help you figure out which nodes are elements versus text or attributes, in which case you can deal with the last path segment separately by using the "ancestor::" axis instead of "ancestor-or-self::".
