Include Topics and Web Pages Using %INCLUDE{...}% Variable

Use the %INCLUDE{...}% variable to embed the content of another topic or web page inside a TWiki topic. The whole content or only parts of a page can be included. If needed, set a proxy server in TWikiPreferences.

Line: 85 to 85
  The TITLE="" and MESSAGE="" parameters are passed into the include. Using this approach, you can create a library of boxes in the Main web, such as Main.NoteBox, Main.InfoBox.

6. Create a Widget Library

You can create a library of GUI widgets using a topic with named sections:

  1. Create a Main.WidgetLibrary topic
  2. Create widgets in that topic, such as alert boxes, submit forms, queries, etc. Widgets are defined as named sections and may process parameters. For example, above alert box can be a widget enclosed in %STARTSECTION{AlertBox}% ... %ENDSECTION{AlertBox}% (instead of the %STOPINCLUDE% ... %STOPINCLUDE%)
  3. Place a widget in any topic. For example, to use the alert box widget write:
    %INCLUDE{ "Main.WidgetLibrary" section="AlertBox" TITLE="Alert" MESSAGE="The sky is the limit!" }%

In essence, you are building a library of functions with parameters that people can use. Use your imagination, the sky is the limit!
