I have added an XsltListViewWebPart which refers to the Asset Library in the site. I have given reference of AssetPick.xslt for thumbnail view for that web part. I want to put the Title in place of Name of each image. How should I do that ? Please help.

I did following steps to get the Image Title instead of Image Name.

First of all download the AssetPick.xslt and copy it to your local machine.

Edit file with any editor and locate to <!--do this directly rather than call below to cut out new file status image--> (Line 90)

Place following tags.

 <a onfocus="OnLink(this)" href="{$thisNode/@FileRef}" onclick="return DispEx(this,event,'TRUE','FALSE','{$thisNode/@File_x0020_Type.url}','{$thisNode/@File_x0020_Type.progid}','{$XmlDefinition/List/@DefaultItemOpen}','{$thisNode/@HTML_x0020_File_x0020_Type.File_x0020_Type.mapcon}','{$thisNode/@HTML_x0020_File_x0020_Type}','{$thisNode/@serverurl.progid}','{$thisNode/@CheckoutUser.id}','{$Userid}','{$XmlDefinition/List/@ForceCheckout}','{$thisNode/@IsCheckedoutToLocal}','{$thisNode/@PermMask}')">
            <xsl:value-of select="$thisNode/@Title" />

(See <xsl:value-of select="$thisNode/@Title" /> we placed @Title in place of @Name)

Save the file and upload it to the Style Library in new folder name "Custom View" and upload the modified file under that folder.

Now run the below console application which assigns the XsltListViewWebPart to the thumbnail view:

static void Main(string[] args)
        SPSite site = new SPSite("http://.........");
        SPWeb web = site.RootWeb;
        SPList list = web.Lists["Images"];
        web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

        SPLimitedWebPartManager webParts = web.GetLimitedWebPartManager(web.Url + "/SiteAssets/WebParts.aspx", System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope.Shared);
        XsltListViewWebPart webPart = new XsltListViewWebPart();
        webPart.ListId = list.ID;

        webPart.ViewGuid = list.DefaultView.ID.ToString();

        SPFile file = web.GetFile(web.Url+"/Style Library/Custom View/AssetPicker.xsl");
        StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(file.OpenBinaryStream());
        webPart.Xsl  = reader.ReadToEnd();
        web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
        Console.WriteLine("Web part added successfully");

The web part will be added to the Web Part Page.

This worked for me.
