<xsl:value-of "@FileLeafRef /> should get you most if not all of what you want.

Some of it will have to be built manually or by using server variables, http://sympmarc.com/2007/10/19/data-view-web-part-parameters-based-on-server-variables/.

In that case, you would just use a concat to string them all together, <xsl:value-of "concat($SomeVariable,"/",@FileLeafRef />, but you shouldn't need to do a full URL, a relative url to the document should suffice.


Atlast I found the solution.

<a id="{concat($currentId,'_Title')}"> <xsl:attribute name="href"> <xsl:call-template name="substring-before-last"> <xsl:with-param name="list" select="url"/> <xsl:with-param name="delimiter" select="'/'"/> </xsl:call-template> </xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="target">_blank</xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="title"> <xsl:value-of select="title"/> </xsl:attribute> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="hithighlightedproperties/HHTitle[. != '']"> <xsl:call-template name="HitHighlighting"> <xsl:with-param name="hh" select="hithighlightedproperties/HHTitle" /> </xsl:call-template> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:value-of select="title"/> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </a>

     `<xsl:template name="substring-before-last">
     <!--passed template parameter -->
     <xsl:param name="list"/>
     <xsl:param name="delimiter"/>
            <xsl:when test="contains($list, $delimiter)">
            <!-- get everything in front of the first delimiter -->
            <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($list,$delimiter)"/>
            <xsl:when test="contains(substring-after($list,$delimiter),$delimiter)">
            <xsl:value-of select="$delimiter"/>
            <xsl:call-template name="substring-before-last">
            <!-- store anything left in another variable -->
            <xsl:with-param name="list" select="substring-after($list,$delimiter)"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="delimiter" select="$delimiter"/>
