Template Directives 

You can use the following template directives in a wizard template file and the Templates.inf file to customize the wizard.

Directive Description

[! if ]

Begins a control structure to check for a condition.

[! else ]

Part of the [! if ] control structure. Checks for another condition.

[! endif ]

Ends the definition of an [! if ] control structure.

[! output ]

Can be used in the following two ways:

  • [! output "string" ] gives you the string.

  • [! output SYMBOL_STRING ] gives you the value of the symbol SYMBOL_STRING.

[! loop ]

Can be used in the following two ways:

  • [! loop = 5 ]

  • [! loop = NUM_OF_PAGES ] where NUM_OF_PAGES is a symbol with a numeric value.

[! endloop ]

The left bracket ([) followed immediately by an exclamation mark (!) indicates the beginning of a template directive. The right bracket indicates the end of a template directive. This is the required syntax:
