Parameter Tokens in format="..." parameter

Name: Expands To:
$value The new value of the changed formfield. New lines in the formfield value are replace by an html break to preserve the viewed format of the formfield
$macro The FIELDHISTORY macro including all the parameters.
$date The current date in the format defined for the server
$time The current time in the format defined for the server
$wikiname The wikiname of the current user

  • In addition you can use all the standard format tokens with the format parameter. See below.

Standard Tokens for format parameter

Name: Expands To:
$n or $n() New line. Use $n() if followed by alphanumeric character, e.g. write Foo$n()Bar instead of Foo$nBar

TIP Most macros accept parameter strings which are split over multiple lines. This is usually more readable than using $n tokens. If you are familiar with sectional includes, you might also consider nested sectional includes to hold the newline content outside of the parameter string entirely.

TIP Note that newline is not a line break. The browser will wrap the lines together. If you require a line break, displaying the results on two lines, use %BR%. Or use two consecutive newlines to create a TML "Paragraph".

$nop or $nop() Is a "no operation". This token gets removed; useful for nested search
$quot Double quote (") (\" also works)
$percent Percent sign (%) ($percnt also works)
$dollar Dollar sign ($)
$lt Less than sign (<)
$gt Greater than sign (>)
$amp Ampersand (&)
$comma Comma (,)
