Subject setting a variable
Date Mon, 21 Aug 2000 15:05:23 GMT

I'm trying to get a parameter value after a form submission to insert it
into a input field.

 <xsl:template match="gap">
    <xsl:variable name="guess"><request:get-parameter-values
    <input type="text" size="{string-length(.)}" name="{@id}">
      <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:copy-of

With the statement <request:get-parameter-values name="{@id}"/> I get
the value for the parameter identified with 
the id. Works fine so far. But to do anything useful except simply
displaying the value I have to bind it to a variable.

As far as I understand I define a variable $guess with the value
<request:get-parameter-values name="{@id}"/> with the statement in the
second line of code above.

Now <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:copy-of
select="$guess"/></xsl:attribute> should produce <xsl:attribute
name="{@id}"/></xsl:attribute> after taglib execution and the resulting
java code should produce the parameter value I need.

But the value attribute of the resulting <input> tag is always empty: 
<input name="2" size="7" type="text" value>

What am I missing here?
