Documentation

To use the generated variable, you must use the form ${prefix.name[key]} with each name replaced with the parameters of this method.

Be careful that using a global variable can lead to unpredictable content in case of multiple definition, which is implicitly the case when a technique has more than one instance (directive). Please note that only global variables are available within templates.
