Template:Tl2, Template:Tl2, Template:Tl2, Template:Tl2 and Template:Tl2 are a family of templates for construction of horizontal bar charts.


{{Bar box
|width   =  width of the graph         (optional)
|barwidth=  width of the bararea       (optional, defaults to 100px)
|float   =  (left|right|none)          (optional, defaults to none)
|title   =  title of the chart         (optional)
|titlebar=  title bar colour           (optional, defaults to none)
|left1   =  first left column header   (optional)
|left2   =  second left column header  (optional)
|right1  =  first right column header  (optional)
|right2  =  second right column header (optional)
|bars    =  chart contents             (see below)
|caption =  caption under the chart    (optional)

Chart contents[edit]

Bar box can contain any number of bars. There are four types of bars:

  • Percentage bar:
{{bar percent|row label|colour|value (width in percents)|optional value label}}

If value label is not provided, it is constructed from the percentage and "%". This bar type also has the Template:Tl2 and Template:Tl2 variations which display more bars for the same row label.

  • Pixel bar:
{{bar pixel|row label|colour|value (width in pixels)|value suffix|optional value label}}

If value label is provided, value suffix is ignored. Otherwise, the value label is constructed from the value and the value suffix. This is used as shorthand. Both following examples give identical results:

{{bar pixel|foo|red|12||12,345}}
{{bar pixel|foo|red|12|,345}}

This bar type also has the Template:Tl2 variation which displays two bars for the same row label.

  • Stacked bars:
{{bar stacked|1st left label|1st right label|color 1|width 1 (in pixels)|...|color 5|width 5 (in pixels)|note1=2nd left label|note2=2nd right label|title1="tooltip" 1|...|title5="tooltip" 5|align=xxxx(l|c|r|d)|collapsed=(yes|y|1)|id=collapsible id}}

titlex sets the "tooltip" of the respective bar and is viewed when hovered over. align sets the text-alignment (left, center, right or default) for each column based on the respective initials. All parameters are optional, but if id is not supplied, collapsed has no effect. Use a custom toggle as the default toggle will distort the chart (see the last example).

  • Gap bar:
{{bar gap|optional separator|height=any valid length (omitting unit defaults to px, default is 10px)}}

Ommiting the separator generates a blank row. Another useful separator is <hr> which produces a horizontal line.
