The IncludeCodeTemplate Command

The IncludeCodeTemplate Command

This command is similar to IncludeTemplate, but is used for templates which consist entirely of XpressDox commands, and none of the text of the template is required in the merged document.

When the code template is included using this command, then any of the paragraphs in the included template which contain no XpressDox fillpoints are removed from the document. This means that descriptive text, tables of contents, headings, etc. can be used in the body of the code template, and they will not be included in the merged document.

The definition above does not mean that no text will be added to the merged document by a Code template. For example, if there is more than one command in a paragraph, then probably an empty paragraph will be added to the merged document. It is only paragraphs with no XpressDox fillpoints which will definitely be excluded from the merged result.

The IncludeCodeTemplate command would be used in the context described by the “Data capture interview layout tips” article.

Note that this feature is available only in Version 4 and later of XpressDox.
