{{{{{{n}}}}}}

Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This simple template provides an alternative to using a switch statement. Instead, it may be replaced by a call to this template. This allows the syntax to be simplified slightly by using unnamed parameters.

Usage[edit]

Instead of using the following:

{{#switch:{{{n}}}
 |1=entry1
 |2=entry2
 |3=entry3
  ...
}}

the following may be used:

{{Select parameter|n={{{n}}}
 |entry1
 |entry2
 |entry3
  ...
}}

The only named parameter {{{n}}} which is passed to this template should be a natural number.
