Usage from wikitext

This module is not designed be used directly from wikitext even though forSee does take an initial frame argument and could potentially be used from wikitext, e.g.:

  • {{hatnote|PREFIX {{#invoke:Hatnote list|forSee|{{tl|For}}|Module:For|{{tl|About}}|Module:About}} POSTFIX}}
    PREFIX For {{For}}, see Module:For. For {{About}}, see Module:About. POSTFIX

Usage from Lua

To call the module, use

local mHatList = require('Module:Hatnote list')

or similar, then access its methods through the mHatList variable (or whatever was used).

andList

andList takes a list in table form, and returns a string with the list separated with "and" and commas as appropriate.

orList

orList takes a list in table form, and returns a string with the list separated with "or" and commas as appropriate.

forSee

_forSee takes three arguments: a table of trimmed arguments with blanks removed, a "from" number with the index to start at, and an options table, and returns a string with a number of "For X, see [[Y]]" sentences. The links are formatted using the methods from Module:Hatnote.

As a convenience, the forSee method (without the leading underscore) takes the same arguments except with a frame instead of an args table, using getArgs() from Module:Arguments to preprocess the arguments.
