[:st_a] .. [:st_u] : Saints Tokens

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Saints Tokens display Saints, obtained from the Saints Sets selected in the Saints property. The Saints/Namedays Options are used to specify how saints should be displayed in each DiaryGridLine.


There are 3 variants of this token.


[:st_a] .. [:st_u] : displays the prefix and saint name :


S. Olivier

St George

Sto. Basilio


[:st_â] .. [:st_û] : displays the prefix only :






[:st_ä] .. [:st_ü] : displays the name only :






Some additional precisions on prefixes :


The translation of the prefixes for each language are defined in the Tokens Manager, for each of the 3 possibilities (male, female and neither).

You can specify a "superscript" part for the [st_prefix] token. So, for example, defining a translation as "S<sup>t" would yield "St" where the "t" in in superscript position.

The "sex" of each saint is defined in the Saints and Namedays Manager.


Finally, the capitalisation of this token follows these rules. The capitalisation of the "st" part of the [:st_...] token determines the capitalisation of the prefix.


"st" will not change the capitalisation of the translation of the tokens [st_prefix] and [saint_prefix] set in the Tokens Manager.

"St" will make the first letter of the prefix uppercase.

"ST" will make the entire prefix uppercase.

In the case of the [:st_a]..[:st_u] tokens (saint with prefix), making the a-u letter uppercase will make the saint name appear in uppercase.


Note that the saint token used internally by the [fä] token is [:st_a].
