If you need to use a variable instead of an attribute, try this (don't
forget the '$'):

  <fo:table background-color="{$bakColor}" />


Or if you need the attribute to be the result of something more complicated like a choose statement, you can use <xsl:attribute>:

<fo:table>
 <xsl:attribute name="background-color">
   <xsl:choose>
     <xsl:when test="position() mod 2 = '1'">white</xsl:when>
     <xsl:otherwise>grey</xsl:otherwise>
   </xsl:choose>
 </xsl:attribute>


good luck, Matt

Subject: setting a property with value of a variable


Hi
I want a set of tables with alternating background colours. To do this I
intend to set the background of the table with the value of a variable which
will contain "white" or "grey". How do I do that?. Presently my .XSL
contains this -


 <xsl:template match="record">

<xsl:variable name="bakColor" select="yellow"/>
<fo:table background-color='<xsl:value-of select="bakColor"/>\'>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>
<fo:table-column column-width="20mm"/>


                <fo:table-body>
                        <xsl:apply-templates/>
                </fo:table-body>
        </fo:table>
 </xsl:template>

But I am getting this error when I try to apply it to my XML file -
