Template page | < Template:Navbox with columns

A navigation box that presents its content in columns. Originally intended to provide a relatively straightforward means to align links prefixed by flag icons, e.g. in templates offering links to country articles.

Basic syntax Edit

Only required parameters and colwidth included.

{{Navbox with columns
|name  = {{subst:PAGENAME}}
|title = 
|colwidth =  <!--(to set a default width for each column,
                  preferably in a proportional unit such as 'em'*)-->
|col1  = 
|col2  = 
}}
* See Em (typography). Using proportional units means the template should still be displayed correctly across a range of browser font-sizes. If colwidth not specified, a default 10em is used.

Parameters Edit

Required parameters in bold. Parameters marked with a cross are parameters in common with the sister templates {{Navbox}} and {{Navbox with collapsible groups}}. A much more complete description of those parameters is available at {{Navbox}}.

Setup parametersEdit

name
The name of the template. The name of this template, for example, is "Navbox with columns".
state
Possible values are collapsed, uncollapsed, plain, off, and the default autocollapse. See {{Navbox}} for more information.
navbar
Possible values are plain, off, and the default value of blank. See {{Navbox}} for more information.
border
Possible values are child, none, and the default value of blank. Set to child if you wish to use the navbox inside of another navbox; with this option, the child navbox is borderless and fits snuggly inside of its parent navbox. The parent navbox may be the list area of {{Navbox}}, a columns of another {{Navbox with columns}}, or a section of {{Navbox with collapsible groups}}. See {{Navbox}} for more information and examples.

Basic data parametersEdit

title
The title of the template, displayed centered in the titlebar at the top of the template.
above
Text or other elements to appear above the columns.
image
Image to the right of all of the columns.
imageleft
Image to the left of all of the columns.
below
Text or other elements to appear below the columns.

Style parametersEdit

bodystyle
CSS style/s to apply to the template's body (i.e. including space not used by columns)
titlestyle
CSS style/s to apply to titlebar; usually background:color (background defaults to NavHead default).
abovestyle
belowstyle
CSS style/s to apply to the above and below parameters, respectively.
basestyle
CSS style/s to apply to the title, above, and below, parameters, all at the same time.
imagestyle
CSS style/s to apply to the image parameter.
imageleftstyle
CSS style/s to apply to the imageleft parameter
colsstyle
CSS style/s to apply across all columns; if used, usually background:color per titlestyle above.
oddcolstyle
evencolstyle
CSS style/s to apply to all odd/even-numbered columns, respectively.
colnstyle
CSS style/s to apply to the nth column only.
colheaderstyle
CSS style/s to apply to all column headers.
colnheaderstyle
CSS style/s to apply to the nth column header.
colnfooterstyle
CSS style/s to apply to the nth column footer cell.

Columns parametersEdit

colwidth
Width, preferably in a proportional unit such as 'em', or as a percentage, used for each column whose width not specified by colNwidth below. Defaults to 10em. Examples:
colwidth = 15em
colwidth = 25%
fullwidth
If set to anything, then the total width of the columns are scaled linearly to make the sum of the widths 100%. A rather advanced parameter, this usually need not be used and should be left blank. If a colheader or colfooter is used, then fullwidth is used automatically. Example:
fullwidth = true
padding
Padding before first column, preferably in a proportional unit. Defaults to 5em. Padding is disabled by setting it to 0 (or 0em, or 0%).
colnwidth
The nth column's width (overrides colwidth above).
coln
The content of the nth column. col1 is required. There can be a maximum of 20 columns.
colnheader
A header cell for the nth column that appears above the column. See below for examples.
colnfooter
A footer cell that appears below the nth column.
colnheadercolspan
A number specifying how many columns the nth column header should span. It defaults to 1. If it is greater than one, then do not specify column headers that it covers. For example, if col1headercolspan = 3, then leave col2header and col3header blank.
colnfootercolspan
A number specifying how many columns the nth column footer should span. It defaults to 1. If it is greater than one, then do not specify column footers that it covers. For example, if col1footercolspan = 3, then leave col2footer and col3footer blank.

Additional listsEdit

You may wish to add a few extra lists below the columns. The following parameters are given to provide such functionality. See {{Navbox}} for a more complete description of how they work, and for more examples. Groups are not allowed.

listn
Allows up to 6 additional lists below the columns.
liststyle
The general CSS style/s for the lists.
listnstyle
CSS style/s for the nth list parameter.
listpadding
Amount of padding to have in each list cell.

Examples Edit

Basic exampleEdit

{{Navbox with columns
|name    = East Asia Summit (EAS)
|title   = Member states of the East Asia Summit (EAS)
|width   = 18.25em
|padding = 10em

|above = ''This is where the {{{above}}} would appear.''

|col1 = AUS<br/> BRU<br/> CAM<br/> IND
|col2 = IDN<br/> JPN<br/> LAO<br/> MAS
|col3 = MYA<br/> NZL<br/> CHN-PRC<br/> PHI
|col4 width=17em
|col4 = SIN<br/> KOR<br/> THA<br/> VIE

|below = '''Potential future members'''TLS RUS
}}


Example with percentage widthsEdit

{{Navbox with columns
| name = Plastics
| title = Plastics
| colwidth = 33%
| colstyle = text-align: center
| col1 = Polyethylene (PE)<br />Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE)<br />Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)<br />Polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC)<br />Polylactic acid (PLA)
| col2 = Polypropylene (PP)<br />Polyamide (PA)<br />Polycarbonate (PC)<br />Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)<br />Polyurethane (PU)
| col3 = Polystyrene (PS)<br /> Polyester<br /> Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)<br /> Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)<br /> Polyoxymethylene (POM)
}}


Example with colnheader and colnfooterEdit

The gray background for the columns is added for illustration only.


Using child navboxesEdit

All three types of navbox templates, namely {{Navbox}}, {{Navbox with columns}}, and {{Navbox with collapsible groups}}, can be nested inside of one another using the border parameter (which is common to all three). For complex templates, it may be necessary to use nesting to achieve a desired look.

Nesting Navbox with columns in itselfEdit

This example shows how one can nest multiple {{Navbox with columns}} templates to get the right look. Edit this section to view the code. There is a main {{Navbox with columns}} and two additional {{Navbox with columns}} templates, with the "child" option set (see code).

Nesting other Navbox formsEdit

This example shows {{Navbox}}, {{Navbox with collapsible groups}} and {{Navbox with columns}} all working together. Press the edit button for the section to view the code. Note that each of the child navboxes has the first parameter set to child
