Help please can anyone advise how I get current date, or today method in xslt 1.o SharePoint
When you add a DVWP to the page in SharePoint Designer, SPD defined a variable which contains the current date for you in the ParameterBindings section:
<ParameterBinding Name="Today" Location="CAMLVariable" DefaultValue="CurrentDate"/>
Be sure to declare Today as a param at the top of the stylesheet:
<xsl:param name="Today" />
Then you can use $Today however you need it.
The ddwrt:Today() function is also useful, but there's no real need for it when SPD is already handing you the value.
