Templating System : Designer Guide : Tag Reference : Variables


Variables are used in templates as placeholders for dynamic data.


Simple variables are referenced by surrounding the variable name with "commercial at" (@) signs:

<!-- simple variables -->
<b><i>@first_name@ @last_name@</b></i>

When processing this template, the server will look for variables named first_name and last_name and substitute their values in the output:

<b><i>Fred Finkel</b></i>

The columns of a row variable are referenced by separating the data source name and column with a period:

<!-- onerow or multirow data sources -->
<b><i>@user.first_name@ @user.last_name@</b></i>
