Template:Brace2

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


UsageEdit

The template generates a variable height brace using LaTeX math markup. These are especially useful in tables where they are used to group items. For the technical details, see: mw:Extension:Math.

Parameters
  • 1: the height of the brace in lines (this is not necessarily the same as lines of text, you may need to tweak it). Optional, default: 1
  • 2: the direction of the brace ("up", "u", "down", "d", "left", "l", "right" or "r"). Optional, default: right.

ExamplesEdit

Plain useEdit

{{brace2|}}
{{brace2|2}}
{{brace2|4|r}}
{{brace2|1|l}}
{{brace2|3|l}}
{{brace2|1|u}}
{{brace2|6|u}}
{{brace2|1|d}}
{{brace2|6|d}}

Formatting with tablesEdit

{|
| Item 1
| rowspan=2|{{brace2|2|r}}
|-
| Item 2
|}
Item 1
Item 2

For putting a line on the right side of the brace, as well as for creating this brace in case of Non-English Wikisource if this template is not present, see example here. However, if the line on right is to be put immediately after or at slight gap from the brace, it can be done as per here.
