This is a documentation subpage for Template:First-of (see that page for the template itself).
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

This template takes up to four parameters, returning the first one that has any content. In contrast to default values of template parameters, this method is not sensitive to the difference between undefined (Null) and empty string.


Normally, a template parameter evaluated with a default value, such as "{{{parameter1 | MISSING }}}" will return the default value ("Missing") if not appearing in the template call, but an empty string ("") if the template call contains:

| ...
| parameter1=
| ...


{{First-of| {{{primary|}}} | {{{alternative|}}} | DefaultValue }}
{{First-of| A | B | C }}
