Default Passing multiple arguments to function

Is it possible to transform from:


to the following form?

<td onclick="function(A,B,C,D)">Name</td>

Where it doesn't necessarily have to have 4 children (i.e. could have any variable number of children).

Thank you so much!

Sure. Assuming <element> is the context node:

In XSLT 2.0:

<td onclick="function({string-join(links/*, ','})">
  <xsl:value-of select="info/name"/>

In XSLT 1.0:

  <xsl:attribute name="onclick">
    <xsl:for-each select="links/*">
      <xsl:value-of select="."/>
      <xsl:if test="position()!=last()">,</xsl:if>
  <xsl:value-of select="info/name"/>
