The XSLT Template settings for the Search Tabs Web Part enable you to control the HTML format of the search tabs created by the part.
The XML that is emitted by the Search Tabs Web Part supplies the URL for the search-center page associated with each available tab and identifies which of these is the current page. It also includes the layout styles that you configure for the Display Options (see below). Your XSLT template must be able to parse this data and arrange it to use the style settings and create image links, tables, etc. as needed. The following default templates are supplied for this web part:
• Default.xsl: creates a search-tab display that shows a button for each available tab, highlights the current tab and links to pages for each of the other tabs. Mouse-over effects are also shown.
• XML.xsl: passes the XML generated by the web part without transforming it to HTML. Usually, you will only use this during development and testing.
See “Web Part XSLT Templates” for complete details about how to use the settings in the XSL Template area and for advice for how to create and edit templates for Ontolica.
