ICON{"name" alt="" default="name"} -- small documentation graphic or icon of common attachment types

  • Generates a small graphic image from the set attached to DocumentGraphics. Images typically have a 16x16 pixel size. You can select a specific image by name, or you can give a full filename, in which case the type of the file will be used to select one of a collection of common file type icons.
  • if you specify an icon which cannot be found, the one specified in the default parameter will be used (and if that fails, the 'else' icon will be used)
  • Syntax: =%ICON{ "filename or icon name" [ default="filename or icon name" ] [ alt="alt text to be added to the HTML img tag" ] }%
  • Examples:
    • %ICON{"flag-gray"}% displays as flag-gray

    • %ICON{"docx" default="doc"}% displays as docx
