XSLT specific intention actions
The XSLT Support comes with a few intentions that can be useful for XSLT development.
Before you start
Enable the XPathView + XSLT plugin
This functionality relies on the XPathView + XSLT plugin, which is bundled and enabled in IntelliJ IDEA by default. If the relevant features aren't available, make sure that you didn't disable the plugin.
Press Control+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and then select.
Open the Installed tab, find the XPathView + XSLT plugin, and select the checkbox next to the plugin name.
Intention to convert xsl:if to xsl:choose
This is useful if it turns out that a simple if-branch isn't enough in a certain situation and an else-branch is required. When placing the caret at the start tag of the
xsl:if, the intention shows up and converts the code fragment into an
xsl:choose, preserving the original
xsl:if as an
xsl:when block and adding an
Intention to add optional parameters
This intention can be used to pass a value for an optional parameter in a template-call. It will insert the appropriate
xsl:with-param tag and show a lookup list for all parameters that aren't already passed to the template.
