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

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

Basic use[edit]

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

{{mlx|Bananas|function|first parameter|second parameter|third|...|tenth}} produces:

{{#invoke:Bananas|function|first parameter|second parameter|third|...|tenth}}

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

{{mlx|Bananas|function|first{{=}}something|second|third{{=}}something|...|tenth}} produces:

{{#invoke:Bananas|function|first=something|second|third=something|...|tenth}}

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

{{mlx|Bananas|function|<nowiki>''first''|''second''|''third=something''|...|''999th''</nowiki>}} produces:

{{#invoke:Bananas|function|first|second|third=something|...|999th}}

Examples[edit]

Code Result Notes
{{mlx|Bananas}} {{#invoke:Bananas}} Usage without function name. This does not produce a usable invocation.
{{mlx|Bananas|hello}} {{#invoke:Bananas|hello}} Usage with a function name
{{mlx|BananasArgs|custom_fruit_2|Fred|4=pineapples=10|5=kiwis=5}} {{#invoke:BananasArgs |custom_fruit_2|Fred|pineapples=10|kiwis=5}} Usage with a function name and parameters
