Documentation Graphics and Filetype icons

This is the Foswiki icon library. The graphics can be used in topics and by web applications.


Default notation: %ICON{"help"}% results in: help

Note that ICON{} assumes a GIF image of 16 x 16 pixels. Use a HTML img tag with %ICONURL{}% for image with other sizes. See the tables below for copy-paste examples.

Other usage: see below.

Usage (extended)

There are several other ways to put an image in a topic.

Shorthand notation:
In Main.SitePreferences!? set a macro for an ICON, for example:

   * Set H = %ICON{help}%

Now you can use the icon by writing %H%

For extended use, check out Foswiki:Extensions.SmiliesPlugin that uses a different short hand than %MACROS%.

Full path:
In any topic, write %PUBURL%/%SYSTEMWEB%/OriginalDocumentGraphics/help.gif to show help.gif

You are not restricted to use the OriginalDocumentGraphics topic - in a similar way you can show attached images by replacing OriginalDocumentGraphics with the topic name.

To create an image with a link, write:
[[WebHome][%ICON{home}% Home]] to get: home Home

To get rid of the underline under the space, write:
[[WebHome][%ICON{home}%]] [[WebHome][Home]] to get: home Home

To get the full URL of the icon, use ICONURL:
%ICONURL{"toggleopen"}% gets you the image path:
and that will get rendered as: toggleopen.gif
