Call Templates From Templates

Using function calls with parameters, you can call templates from other templates, whether standard templates or user-defined templates created within your project. Also, called templates can return a value, and can be called recursively.

Examples

A call statement returning a parameter to a variable:

     $sSource = %StateEnumeratedName($Source)%

A call statement to a template that has parameters:

     %RuleTask($GUID, $index)%

Using the $parameter statement in the called template:

     $GUID = $parameter1

     $index = $parameter2

Templates support recursive calls, such as this recursive call on the template RuleTask:

     $GUID = $parameter1

     $index = $parameter2

     % PI = "" %

     $nul = "Initialize condition and action object"

     $count = %BR_GET("RuletCount")%

     % if $count == "" or $count == $index %

     %ComputeRulet($GUID)%

     \n

     % endTemplate %

     %Rulet($index)%

     \n

     $index = %MATH_ADD($index, "1")%

     %RuleTask($GUID, $index)%
