Documentation icon Documentationviewedithistorypurge

This documentation is transcluded from Template:Tincture/doc.

The template is used to display vexillological and heraldic colors, as in flags and coats of arms.

This template has 1 to 12 unnamed parameters, each parameter consists of a single letter.

Usage: e.g. {{ Tinctureabcg }} 0or0 {{ Tincturea/b/c/g }}

Note: An empty parameter (e.g. 2 pipes) terminates the boxes generation. Possible letters are

argent
a     tooltip: The hexadecimal color value is displayed when the cursor is moved over the colored field
argent-d
A     ["argent dark"]
or
o
azure
b     [for "bleu" or "blue"]
celeste
B
carnation
c
cendrée
C
gules
g
purpure
p
sable
s
tawny
t
vert
v

For test reasons it is also possible to use it with additional colors, instead of the color letter the hexadecimal color value can be used, e.g.

#abc #abc (3-characters-short-notation does not work with the current MS-IE!),   or
#2F4D5A #2F4D5A. In the cases of hex color codes the parameter for text color, e.g. tc=F0F, allows to use a text color more different from the background color.

Any other parameter value causes an error message, e.g {{ Tincture32a }} gives

Unknown tincture code: "32a"

An example: the heraldic main tinctures {{ Tinctureaobgpsv }} gives:

argent or azure gules purpure sable vert

The sequence should be: first silver and gold, then the other colors in alphabetic order.

Bajuvarian colorsEdit

With the parameter by=B the slightly different colors are shown:

argent argent-d or azure celeste carnation cendrée gules purpure sable tawny vert

When transclusion is by {{COAInformation}}, use |tinctureB= instead of |tincture=.

CategorizationEdit

Automatic categorization is performed by the subtemplate {{Tincture/cat1}} (or, for Bajuvarian colors with subtemplate {{Tincture/catB}}; other color systems possible).
Any other (tincture-) category or categories may be defined with the parameter cat=; specify complete with the brackets: cat=[[Category:...]]

To suppress any categorizing set either "cat=-" or cat=<nowiki/> or something like that; or set the "-" like a color code, at any position.
