Examples

In the following example, a data object of key/value pairs is used to produce the string "Paused at: 12 of 14 files (100 Kb of 12000Gb)"

var template = "Paused at: %atFile of %totalFiles files (%atSize of %totalSize)";
var data = {
    atFile: 12,
    totalFiles: 14,
    atSize: "100 Kb",
    totalSize: "12000 Gb"
};
var result = fluid.stringTemplate(template, data);

In the following example, an array of simple values is used to produce the string "Paused at: 12 of 14 files (100 Kb of 12000Gb)"

var template = "Paused at: %0 of %1 files (%2 of %3)";

var atFile = "12";
var totalFiles = "14";
var atSize = "100 Kb";
var totalSize = "12000 Gb";
var data = [atFile, totalFiles, atSize, totalSize];

var result = fluid.stringTemplate(template, data);

In the following example, an array of mixed, complex values is used to produce the string "Paused at: 12 of 14 files (100 Kb of 12000Gb)"

var template = "Paused at: %0 of %1 files (%2 of %3)";

var atFile = "12";
var totalFiles = "14";
var atSize = { // This represents a complex object type that has a toString method.
    toString: function () {
        return "100 Kb";
    }
};
var totalSize = "12000 Gb";
var data = [atFile, totalFiles, atSize, totalSize];

var result = fluid.stringTemplate(template, data);
