Variables loaded from config files

Variables loaded from config files

Variables that are loaded from the config files are referenced by enclosing them within hash marks (#), or with the smarty variable $smarty.config. The second syntax is useful for embedding into quoted attribute values.

Example 4-5. config variables

foo.conf:

pageTitle = "This is mine"
bodyBgColor = "#eeeeee"
tableBorderSize = "3"
tableBgColor = "#bbbbbb"
rowBgColor = "#cccccc"

index.tpl:

{config_load file="foo.conf"}
<html>
<title>{#pageTitle#}</title>
<body bgcolor="{#bodyBgColor#}">
<table border="{#tableBorderSize#}" bgcolor="{#tableBgColor#}">
<tr bgcolor="{#rowBgColor#}">
	<td>First</td>
	<td>Last</td>
	<td>Address</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

index.tpl: (alternate syntax)

{config_load file="foo.conf"}
<html>
<title>{$smarty.config.pageTitle}</title>
<body bgcolor="{$smarty.config.bodyBgColor}">
<table border="{$smarty.config.tableBorderSize}" bgcolor="{$smarty.config.tableBgColor}">
<tr bgcolor="{$smarty.config.rowBgColor}">
	<td>First</td>
	<td>Last</td>
	<td>Address</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

this will output for both examples:

<html>
<title>This is mine</title>
<body bgcolor="#eeeeee">
<table border="3" bgcolor="#bbbbbb">
<tr bgcolor="#cccccc">
	<td>First</td>
	<td>Last</td>
	<td>Address</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Config file variables cannot be used until after they are loaded in from a config file. This procedure is explained later in this document under {config_load}.
