This documentation is transcluded from Template:Max/doc.

This template returns the maximum of one, two or three numbers. Please note that it evaluates parameters only until it finds an empty one, so if only parameters 1 and 3 are provided, it returns parameter 1 regardless of which one is larger. If parameter 1 is empty, it returns the empty string. It can process any input that is a valid expression for {{#expr:}} (1.5, e, acos(0)*2 etc.).

Usage

{{Max |1= |2= |3= }}

Template parameters

<templatedata>JSON</templatedata> ./. {{TemplateBox}}
TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either useTemplateData=1 or useTemplateData=only on the /doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. <nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw <templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.

The second number to compare. Not strictly needed, but if not present, the template will always return the first parameter, which is not very useful. :)
