Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This templates' name is derived from its purpose to display a Template link expanded in a wiki page.

This template takes another template-name and some associated pipe-tricked (numbered) parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and displays them as an 'example demonstration' of how the template-name template could be coded, literally. The code is displayed without triggering the Template transclusion as it would normally performed if you use this bracket syntax into the wikicode of the page. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.


Usage

{{Tlx|Template|first parameter|second|third|...|tenth}}{{Template|first parameter|second|third|...|tenth}}

Where parameters might contain "=" characters, use {{=}} instead

{{Tlx|Template|first parameter{{=}}anything|second|third{{=}}something|...|tenth}}{{Template|first parameter=anything|second|third=something|...|tenth}}

For more than 10 parameters, possibly also containing "=", use

{{Tlx|Template|<nowiki>first|second|third=something|...|999th</nowiki>}}{{Template|first|second|third=something|...|999th}}

The three dots in the examples represent a number of arguments that have been omitted and are not an actual argument.

  • Specifics: Up to 10 pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 10 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used with equals code &#61; or {{=}} or in nowiki-text: "<nowiki>size=10</nowiki>" or all parameters as a string in "<nowiki>" tags; see Examples at bottom.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage with <code><nowiki>, for example: <code><code class="nowrap"><nowiki>{{Anytemplate|arg1=23|size=250px|other parameters...}}</nowiki></code></code>. If a vertical display, with parameters on their own lines, is desired, this can also be laid out manually in this manner, or more rapidly done with <pre>...</pre>.

Parameters

  • If given no additional parameters except  'template name' ({{{1}}}),  it presents the same as the similar {{Tl}} macro template -- a blue link nested in curly-braces -- the same as a user would apply the template without parameters, but with a noticeably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
    • {{Tl|Tl}} display compared to {{Tlx|Tl}}: (Tl: {{Tl}} versus Tlx: {{Tl}})
  • Comparatively, {{Tl}} will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may be preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions.
