IF Condition in RTF template

When you create a BI Publisher template, you can add conditional statements to determine whether or not a condition is true or false. IF Condition in RTF template allows you to perform actions only when certain conditions are met. For example, you might want to display a message only when the value of a field exceeds a certain threshold.

The syntax

We can use if condition directly in xml publisher by writing <?IF?> condition <?END IF?>

Example: <?if :rate>0 ?> Yes <?end if?>

But for If-else we need to use extended function.

Method 1:

<?xdofx:if element_condition then result1 else result2 end if?>


<?xdofx:if PO_AMOUNT > 15000 then ’Costly’
if PO_AMOUNT <5000 then ’Cheaper’
end if?>

Method 2:



<?xdoxslt:ifelse(1=2,’yes 1 is equal to 2’,’No 1 is not equal to 2’)?>

The result of the above expression is
No 1 is not equal to 2

if xdoxslt:get_variable

Using this for a variable

for e.g if counter variable is greater than 0 print 22 else print 33

<?xdoxslt:ifelse((xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX, ‘counter’))>0,22,33)?>

Using OR Condition in XML RTF Template:


<?if:XMLfield=value1 or XMLfield=value2?> display value <?end if?>


<?if:sum(AVALUE)=0 or sum(BVALUE)=0?>0<?end if?>

Inserting Choose Statements

Use the choose, when, and otherwise elements to express multiple conditional tests. If certain conditions are met in the incoming XML data, then specific sections of the template are rendered. This is a very powerful feature of the RTF template.

Use the following syntax for these elements:
