XSL: cycle every element

Hi all,

I need to verify if any element of an XML file contains an attribute called "id"; for example:



And this is what I wrote but it seems not working



When I print $currentNode I would like to get printed the name of the node.

Thanks
Marco

I don't know what that "$xmlfile" variable might be, but you are only looking at its children in that code, not all of its descendants.

Why don't you just write an XPath expression which selects all nodes with an "id" attribute? That would be far easier than writing your own code to search the document.

Instead of this:
>select="$currentNode"
do this
