Documentation

The generated variable is a special variable that is automatically iterated over. When you call a generic method with this variable as a parameter, n calls will be made, one for each items of the variable. Note: there is a limit of 10000 items

To use the generated variable, you must use the form ${prefix.name} 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.
