BizTalk : Q&A : Read Repeating Namepair values using XSLT for-each

Friday, March 22, 2013
Q: Hi i have a strange issue with matching specific attribute of xml node. Example code that doesnt work:
<xsl:for-each select="../../unit/service/price/season[@name=$period_name]">
     <xsl:attribute name="std_bed_price">
          <xsl:value-of select="../@amount"/>
     </xsl:attribute>
</xsl:for-each>
Example code that DOES work but i don't like this way too much:
 <xsl:for-each select="../../unit/service/price/season">
     <xsl:if test="@name = $period_name">
          <xsl:attribute name="std_bed_price">
               <xsl:value-of select="../@amount"/>
          </xsl:attribute>
     </xsl:if>
 </xsl:for-each>
If in first example i replace the variable name with some of the values like 'A' it works, i also tested what variable name is selected and it has the correct data inside (so, 'A','B','C' ...)
Anyone had this problem before?

A: You might try changing it to an apply-templates instead of a foreach. Something like the following should work.
<xsl:template match="price">
    <xsl:attribute name="std_bed_price">
        <xsl:value-of select="@amount" />
    </xsl:attribute>
</xsl:template>
And then call it like:
<xsl:apply-template select="../../unit/service/price/[season/@name=$period_name]" />
or

select="../../unit/service/price/season[./@name=$period_name]
