The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is that the code:

{{tl|Example}}
generates
{{Example}}

More complex variations are described below.

{{tlx}} displays with the same enhanced presentation, and also expands several 'placeholder' parameters to generate a sample template call.

Usage

 {{tl|Template name to display}}
and
 {{tlx|Template name to display}} -- local link, just like tl.
 or

 {{tl|1==)}} -- use 1= where the template name contains an equals sign (as [[template:=)]] does).
