WML <template> Tag


        Advertisements

        The <template> is used to apply <do> and <onevent> elements to all cards in a deck. This element defines a template for all the cards in a deck and the code in the <template> tag is added to each card in the deck.

        You can override a <do> element of a template by defining another <do> element with the same name attribute value in a WML card.

        Attributes:

        The <template> element supports the following attributes:

        AttributeValueDescription
        onenterbackwardURLOccurs when the user navigates into a card using a "prev" task
        onenterforwardURLOccurs when the user navigates into a card using a "go" task
        ontimerURLOccurs when the "timer" expires
        classclass dataSets a class name for the element.
        idelement IDA unique ID for the element.

        Example:

        Following is the example showing usage of this element:
