  • This template takes a template-name and up to 128 optional number of associated parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and aggregates them into an 'example demonstration' of how the template might be used. It's primary use is in instruction and documentation such as this passage.
  • Additionally, tlx can be used to demonstrate templates on other sister projects.
  • If more than 128 associated parameters are given the remainder will be truncated to "...".

Examples[edit]

Markup Displays Remarks
{{tlx|tlx}} {{tlx}}  
{{tlx|tlx|SISTER=w:}} {{tlx}} = won't work
{{tlx|tlx|1|2|3|4}} {{tlx|1|2|3|4}} you can use | to get around the 128 limitation
{{tlx|tlx|1|2|3{{!}}4}} {{tlx|1|2|3|4}} {{!}} also works
{{tlx|tlx|SISTER=w:}} {{tlx|SISTER=w:}} you can use = to display named parameters
{{tlx|tlx|<nowiki>SISTER=w:</nowiki>}} {{tlx|SISTER=w:}} sticky nowiki also works
{{tlx|tlx| |two}} {{tlx|two}} empty parameters work
{{tlx|tlx|2=one|two}} {{tlx|two}} two clobbers 2=one
{{tlx|tlx|3=two|2=one}} {{tlx|one|two}} right to left okay
