In the snippet below, I want to be able to change the value in the first href= to a different WP form based on another value in the list. I want to embed the code in conditional statements to test for values. The Management Appraisal... is defined in Manage Connections.
I want to override the Connection value.

</tr><tr><td class="style6" style="width: 8%">Form ID<a href="{@Tier_Appraisal_URL}"></a></td><td><a href="Management Appraisal copy - Emp.aspx"><xsl:value-of select="@Tier_Appraisal_URL.desc" /></a></td></tr>

I think it should be simple but I cant come up with correct syntax.


There are 2 ways to do conditional logic in xslt/dvwps, xsl:choose and xsl:if. They operate in similar ways but can give you different results. xsl:if only happens when the test evaluates to true, xsl:choose will always return something. Typical usages:

You are guaranteed to get one of these in the markup

    <xsl:when test="@Field = 'A'">
    <xsl:when test="@Field = 'B'">

This will onlybe output if Field equals A, but if Field equals B it gets skipped

<xsl:if test="@Field = 'A'">Foo</xsl:if>
