Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This subtemplate of {{Infobox basketball biography}} is used to generate the colored headers corresponding to the team colors for the individual's current professional team.


{{Infobox basketball biography/style|team}}


{{Infobox basketball biography/style|team|team_link}}

How it works

The template checks to see if the team is known by checking the return code from the 'check' function in Module:Sports color. If the team is known by the module, then it will return known, and the template uses coloring specified by the 'colorcell' function in Module:Sports color. If the team is not known by the module, then it will return nothing, and the template uses the coloring specified by the 'header' function in Module:College color.

If a second team_link parameter is passed, this style statement is used to generate a colored link, otherwise the template simply returns the style statement.


The following are tests to make sure the template has not been broken. The tests check the last team in a few sections of the module, and in the NCAA color template.

Youngstown State Penguins NCAA background-color:#C8102E;color:#FFFFFF;
Moncton Magic Canada background-color:#DCDCDC;color:#000000;
Raleigh Firebirds The Basketball League background-color:#DCDCDC;color:#000000;

The third column in the table above should not be blank for any of the queries. Only the first three should return DCDCDC/000000 (the default).


In principle, more leagues could be added, but there is a risk that this would increase the module's complexity, and either (a) reduce rendering speed, or (b) trigger the dreaded script error.
