Template page | < Template:Tlxm

This '{{Tlx}}' template documentation is transcluded for all Tlx family templates (Tlx, Tlxc, Tlxm, Tlxw) [edit].Masterpage  


{{tlx|template|first parameter|second|third|fourth|fifth|sixth|seventh|eight|ninth}}{{template|first parameter|second|third|fourth|fifth|sixth|seventh|eight|ninth}}

Purpose and naming: Mnemonically 'Template list expanded'... after <tt>{{tl}}</tt> Template list'

  • 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. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.
  • Specifics: Up to five pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 5 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used, when tagged as a nowiki-keyword: "<nowiki>siz=10<\nowiki>" with each keyword parameter surrounded by "<nowiki>" tags; see Examples at bottom. For more details, see the this talk page.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous/keyword parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage in double-braces, putting only nowiki-braces "{{" to start, such as: "<nowiki>{{<\nowiki>Anytemplate |arg1=23 |siz=250px}}".

  • 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 noticably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
  • {{Tl|Tl}} display compared to {{Tlx|Tl}}: (Tl: {{Tlx}} versus Tlx: {{Tl}})
  • Comparatively, {{Tl}} will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions1.

DocumentationEdit

{{Tlxm/doc}} is a generalization of {{Tl|x}}, {{Tlp|x|y}}, etcetera with arguably better readable output. This depends on the browser, but too narrow uses of "{", "|", "}" in conjunction with links can be hard to read.

Usage

{{Tlxm/doc|template name}}
{{Tlxm/doc|template name|param}}
{{Tlxm/doc|template name|1|2|3}}
{{Tlxm/doc|template name|1|2|3&#124;more}}
{{Tlxm/doc|template name|param&#61;value}}

Up to three placeholders for parameters of the specified template

Examples Edit

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2,..., X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
