Note: This documentation for {{Tlx}} is also transcluded by its derivatives {{Tlxb}}, {{Tlxc}}, {{Tlxw}} (πŒΉπŒ½πŒΌπŒ°πŒΉπŒ³πŒ΄πŒΉπ†πŒ°πŒΏπ‚πŒ°πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ»πŒ΄πŒΉπŒ½πƒ:Dotmaster page).

This template is used to show example template usage without expanding the template itself.

Basic use[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

(Note: In the following examples, ellipses (groups of three dots) indicate where parameters have been omitted.)

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

Where parameters might contain one or more equals-signs ("="), replace each equals-sign with {{=}}:

{{Tlx|Template|first{{=}}something|second|third{{=}}something|...|tenth}} produces: {{Template|first=something|second|third=something|...|tenth}}

For more than ten parameters, possibly also containing equals-signs, use <nowiki>...</nowiki> thus:

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

Purpose and naming[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Mnemonically, "[T]emplate [l]ink e[x]panded" (after {{Tl}}, "[T]emplate [l]ink").

This template allows an example of calling a template, accompanied by one or more parameters, to be displayed without also causing the template to be called.

Up to ten of the template's parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) may be displayed as placeholders, while more than 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. For more details, see this talk page.

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><nowiki>{{Anytemplate|arg1=23|size=250px|other parameters...}}</nowiki></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[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

  • If the only parameter supplied is {{{1}}}, i.e. a template's name, {{Tlx}}'s output is the same as {{Tl}} – i.e. a link within braces – but in a monospaced font:
    • {{ Tl | Tl }} produces: {{Tl}}
    • {{ Tlx | Tl }} produces: {{Tl}}
{{Tl}} will also not take nor display additional parameters.
Named parameters

|subst=

Setting this parameter to any non-blank value will prefix the string subst: linked to Help:Substitution. This is useful to indicate when a template should be substituted. For example, {{Tlx|Welcome|subst=Y}} produces: {{subst:Welcome}}. This is similar to the action of the {{Tlxs}} template: {{Tlxs|Welcome}} produces: π†πŒ°πŒΏπ‚πŒ°πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ»πŒ΄πŒΉπŒ½πƒ:Tlxs.

|SISTER=

For an interwiki link to other sister projects, such as: |SISTER=M: (Meta), |SISTER=Q: (WikiQuote), |SISTER=S: (WikiSource), etc, facilitating interwiki template documentation and/or discussion.

|LANG=

For a link to Wikipedias in other languages, such as: |LANG=de: (German), |LANG=sv: (Swedish), etc, facilitating cross-language template documentation and/or discussion.

Documentation[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

{{Tlx}} is a generalization of {{Tl | x}}, {{Tlp | x | y}} etc., with output that is arguably more legible. This depends on the browser, but narrow gaps between characters such as " { ", " | ", " } " and links can be hard to read when not monospaced (and hard to click on; for uses like {{!}}, see {{Tlw}}, which makes the click target bigger).

Usage[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

{{Tlx|Templatename}}
{{Tlx|Templatename|param}}
{{Tlx|Templatename|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}
{{Tlx|Templatename|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;more}}
{{Tlx|Templatename|param&#61;value}}

There are up to 10 placeholders for parameters of the specified template.
