XSLT and sort a column

I want to load a table with 2 columns from an xml file.

Is it possible with xslt to sort the columns by clicking on their
header ?

XSLT doesn't know anything about clicks; it's essentially a batch
process. Feed it a document and a stylesheet, get a new document out.

XSLT does have sort operations, so if you can use the click to cause an
appropriate stylesheet to run, you could write a stylesheet which will
perform appropriate sorting.

(Or you could have your stylesheet generate its output including the
appropriate scripting to sort on the client -- but that starts with
someone writing those scripts and deciding what the page that includes
them should look like, then writing the stylesheet to generate the page
that way.)

In that case, you're talking about browser behaviors -- HTML/XHTML
scripting, rather than XML per se.

Hi I feel I'll be asking for someone to turn water into wine before this happens, but just in case!

Hi, I've been buried in xsl and xslt articles for several days now, and am still unsure as to what I need to do... Basically, my vb.net app loads up an XML file from an external source (Input.xml). When the user is setting up the source, they can make changes to it to specify which columns to include for use in my app, they can rename columns, they can mark a column as being of a known datatype (my own custom datatypes, e.g. a Tree). ...

Hi all, I'm having a problem doing an Xslt transform in code. I've done it before, so I'm not really sure why its not working. The problem is that the result of the transform is an empty string.

Hi all, I'm rather new to XSL (and this forum) and have searched everywhere to find out how to order the output of XML to text using XSLT but haven't found the answer.
