The following documentation is located at Template:picdic/documentation. [edit]


Use this template to add a Picture dictionary to an entry.

Usage (see four different ways to use this template below):

{{ picdic
| image=Solar_sys8.jpg
| detail1=

{{ picdicimg | image=Milky Way Galaxy.jpg | link=heavenly body }}

| detail2=

{{ picdicimg | image=The sun1.jpg | link=Sun | altlink=The sun }}
{{ picdicimg | image=Mercury in color - Prockter07 centered.jpg | link=Mercury }}

}}

Parameters for this template:

image
Image that describes the entry.
detail1
Any content, in most cases clickable image(s) describing a hypernym.
A clickable image can be inserted by adding a line with template:picdicimg for each image.

Optional parameters

detail2
detail3
detail4
Any content, in most cases clickable images describing the hyponyms.
A clickable image can be inserted by adding a line with template:picdicimg for each image.
detail2, detail3 and detail4 are optional, in that case hyponyms should be described elsewhere.
Within parameters detail1, detail2, detail3 and detail4 the full wiki syntax can be used. The only restriction is the use of the | character in tables (and complex templates). That character should be replaced by the template {{!}}. For tables {|, |-, |, ||, |} etc. should be replaced by {{{!}}, {{!}}-, {{!}}, {{!}}{{!}}, {{!}}} etc. Alternatively the (X)HTML syntax for tables can be used like <table><tr><td> </td></tr></table>.
scrollable
Fill scrollable=yes to have a scroll bar at the bottom of the details
text
The name of the entry. The default value is the page name of the entry.
width
Maximum width of the image.
This parameter is optional, the default width is 310.
height
Maximum height of the image.
This parameter is optional, the default height is 310.
imagemap
This parameter is optional, and only to be used in case of an image map instead of other visual content describing the hyponyms.
The parameter imagemap cannot be used in combination with the parameter labels
To use image maps this parameter should be filled with a valid defintion of the imagemap areas.
The coordinates are the number of pixels from the upper-left-hand corner of the default size of the image, so are independent of the size shown on screen.
Example of this parameter:
imagemap=
circle 1035 572 13 [[Mercury]]
circle 860 483 234 [[Sun]]
A tutorial to use image maps can be found at Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2008-03-03.
labels
This parameter is optional, and only to be used in case of text labels to be inserted on the main image instead of other visual content describing the hyponyms.
The parameter labels cannot be used in combination with the parameter imagemap
The labels itself should be inserted by adding a line with template:picdiclabel for each label.
The coordinates are the number of pixels from the upper-left-hand corner of the visable size of the image, so are dependent of the size shown on screen. See the template for further info.
Examples of this parameter:
labels=
{{ picdiclabel | posx=181 | posy= 86 | link=Sun }}
{{ picdiclabel | posx=214 | posy=119 | link=Mercury | align=right }}
