This template creates example usage syntax for a template, and links the name to the template page. The name is derived from "Template list expanded".

Up to 7 pass parameters (numbered) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and more parameters are shown as "|...". An optional SISTER parameter can specify an interwiki prefix to link to another wiki. Examples:

Code Result Remark
{{Tlx|x0}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlx|x1|one}} {{x1|one}}  
{{Tlx|x2|one|two}} {{x2|one|two}}  
{{Tlx|x3|1|2|3}} {{x3|1|2|3}}  
{{Tlx|x4|1|2|3|4}} {{x4|1|2|3|4}} up to 7 parameters, then ...
{{Tlx|x4|1|2|3|4}} {{x4|1|2|3|4}} | for more
{{Tlx|x1|x=u}} {{x1}} = won't work
{{Tlx|x1|x=u}} {{x1|x=u}} = is okay
{{Tlx|x1|<nowiki>x=u</nowiki>}} {{x1|x=u}} sticky nowiki is okay
{{Tlx|x2| |two}} {{x2|two}} empty won't work
{{Tlx|x2|&#32;|two}} {{x2| |two}} &#32; is okay

{{Tlx|x2| &#124; two}} {{x2| | two}} &#124; is okay
{{Tlx|x2| {{!}} two}} {{x2| | two}} {{!}} is dubious
{{Tlx|x2|2=|3=two}} {{x2|two}} empty really doesn't work
{{Tlx|x2|3=two|2=one}} {{x2|one|two}} right to left okay
