xslt_transform — Applies a stylesheet to an XML document with one function call.


boolean xslt_transform(xslt_URI, xml_URI, result_URI[, xslt_parameters][, xslt_arguments][, result]);
string xslt_URI: Location of stylesheet file
string xml_URI: Location of XML document file
string result_URI: Location of file in which to place results
array xslt_parameters (optional): Array of top-level XSLT parameters to pass to the stylesheet
array xslt_arguments (optional): Array of named document buffers to pass to the stylesheet
string result (optional): String which will contain the result when complete


TRUE if successful; FALSE otherwise.


This function applies the stylesheet contained in the file named by xslt_URI to the XML document named by xml_URI . The results of the transformation are then placed into the internal buffer named by result_URI , which must use the 'arg:' URI scheme. xslt_parameters , if given, should contain a list of variables to be passed to the stylesheet. The xslt_arguments array, if given, is a list of named document buffers to be passed to the stylesheet.


Example 1147. Using xslt_transform() in different ways

echo "<h3>Straight & simple processing</h3>\n";
$result = '';
if (xslt_transform('slashdot.xsl', 'slashdot.xml', 'arg:/_result', 0, 0, $result)) {
    echo $result;
} else {
    echo xslt_error();

echo "<h3>Using named buffers</h3>\n";
$result = '';
$arglist = array('xslbuffer' => join('', file('slashdot.xsl')), 
                 'xmlbuffer' => join('', file('slashdot.xml')));
if (xslt_transform('arg:/xslbuffer',
                   0, $arglist,
                   $result)) {
    echo $result;
} else {
    echo xslt_error();

echo "<h3>Providing parameters</h3>\n";
$result = '';
$params = array('generated-for' => 'Torben Wilson');
if (xslt_transform('slashdot.xsl', 'slashdot.xml',
                   'arg:/_result', $params, 0, $result)) {
    echo $result;
} else {
    echo xslt_error();
