Default if option


I am trying to make an if on an xsl in order to get a specific output.
my etd is:
<entity eid="A" tid="501" plural-tid="502" grouping-tid="503" plural-grouping-tid="504" length="256">
<data class="activity" type="varchar" dbcolumn="MAIL_MSG" mandatory="yes" last-summary="all" collection-id="msg" />

<entity eid="U" tid="511" plural-tid="512" grouping-tid="513" plural-grouping-tid="514" length="256">
<data class="user_name" type="varchar" dbcolumn="SENDER" mandatory="yes" last-summary="all" collection-id="sender" />

<entity eid="C" tid="521" plural-tid="522" grouping-tid="523" plural-grouping-tid="524" length="256">
<data class="client_ip" type="varchar" dbcolumn="SENDER_IP" mandatory="yes" last-summary="all" collection-id="C_IP" />

in the xsl:

<xsl:if test = "/etd/entities/entity/data/@class = 'client_ip'">
<xsl:with-param name="line" select="concat(./@collection-id,'_GID', '/',$column_name,'_GID', '/location' ,'/INT_ID')"/>

I want in the out put to write in line only for the class where it is client_ip. instead, it is doing the output for all 3 entity and doing the line with _GID for all 3 of them.

how can I filter in order to have in the output the _GID line only where the class is client_ip?

You haven't given enough information for a precise answer.

<xsl:if> can never be used around an <xsl:with-param>, it can only be used around an instruction.

<xsl:if test = "/etd/entities/entity/data/@class = 'client_ip'"> tests whether such an entity exists anywhere in the document (because you're selecting starting from "/", the root node). You probably want to test whether the current entity has data/@class = 'client_ip'. If the current node is an entity node, use <xsl:if test = "data/@class = 'client_ip'">
