Render / AsciiViewHelper

Render: ASCII Character

Renders a single character identified by its charset number.

For example: <v:render.character ascii="10" /> renders a UNIX linebreak as does {v:render.character(ascii: 10)}. Can be used in combination with v:iterator.loop` to render sequences or repeat the same character:

{v:render.ascii(ascii: 10) -> v:iterator.loop(count: 5)}

And naturally you can feed any integer variable or ViewHelper return value into the ascii parameter throught renderChildren to allow chaining:

{variableWithAsciiInteger -> v:render.ascii()}

And arrays are also supported - they will produce a string of characters from each number in the array:

{v:render.ascii(ascii: {0: 13, 1: 10})}

Will produce a Windows line break, \r\n. /

  • Tag usage example

    <v:render.ascii ascii="[mixed]">
    	<!-- tag content - may be ignored! -->
  • Inline usage example

    {v:render.ascii(ascii: [mixed])}

    [TASK] CGL remove use leading backslash
    PHP Docs
    Note that for namespaced names (fully qualified namespace names containing namespace separator, such as Foo\Bar as opposed to global names that do not, such as FooBar),
    the leading backslash is unnecessary and not recommended, as import names must be fully qualified, and are not processed relative to the current namespace.
