Default parent::*

 Is there a different way of writing the same piece of code without using parent::* to get the same output.

<xsl:variable name="test" select="a/b/c[not@disp)]/parent::*/parent::*"/>

Thanks in advance,
D

Yes, you can write this as

select="a[b/c[not(@disp)]]"

Thanks for your help.
Unfortunately, nested predicates are not supported for a custom made processor which I am using.
Is there some other way.

Sorry, your code fragment looked superficially like XSLT and you asked the question on an XSLT forum so I assumed the question was about XSLT.

If you're using some different language then you're on your own, mate.

This is an XSLT question and for that reason I had put it in this forum.
Is there an alternative way to write the following piece of code and get the same output without using nested predicates or parent::*


<xsl:variable name="test" select="a/b/c[not( @disp)]/parent::*/parent::*"/>

Thanks in advance,
D

Sorry, but it is not an XSLT question. If your processor doesn't accept the syntax I gave you, then it is not an XSLT processor.
