Help please can anyone advise how I get current date, or today method in xslt 1.o SharePoint
I'm not sure if XSLT 1.0 have today's date method. However, XSLT 2.0 has an equivalent
Have you tried?
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.
