Re: [xwiki-users] Macro Parameter as Array

2016-04-04 Thread Jesse Bright
Thomas and Vincent, thank you both for the feedback. If parameters supported 
data type it would open up a lot of nice options for wiki macros but I can 
manage without. It's easy enough to fake the Boolean type and the macro I 
wanted to use arrays is just for building the site pages and not for production 
use, so I can hard code my lists easy enough. Thanks again!

Regards,

Jesse

no, it’s not really possible to pass typed parameters to macros in wiki syntax.

However, if the macro is written in Java and it expects a List, and you 
pass a comma-separated list, XWiki will convert the string to List 
automatically. Example:

{{someMacro listParam=“val1, val2, val3”/}}

This is not possible in a wiki macro though.

Thanks

Re: [xwiki-users] Macro Parameter as Array

2016-04-02 Thread Jesse Bright
For that matter are any other data types, like Boolean for example, allowed as 
macro parameters?

Jesse

[xwiki-users] Macro Parameter as Array

2016-04-02 Thread Personal
Is it possible to pass an array as a macro parameter? So far my attempts have 
failed.

Macro code:
#set( $a = $xcontext.macro.params.array)
$a

#foreach($i in $a)
  $i
#end


Page code:
#set( $array = ['Chapter 1', 'Chapter 2', 'Chapter 3'])
$array

#foreach($i in $array)
  $i
#end

{{test array=$array/}}


The array processed in the page works as expected. The array passed to the 
macro only prints up to the first space between Chapter and 1. I have also 
tried to enter the array as a string which passes the string but the macro does 
not treat it as an array, which doesn’t surprise me. The comments from Stefan 
and Vincent on 
http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/DevGuide/WikiMacroTutorial seem to 
touch on this issue but I do not understand the answer provided. Thank you for 
any clarification to this issue you can provide.
