Smarty has several types of variables. The type of the variable depends on what symbol it is prefixed or enclosed within.

Variables in Smarty can be either displayed directly or used as arguments for functions, attributes and modifiers, inside conditional expressions, etc. To print a variable, simply enclose it in the delimiters so that it is the only thing contained between them.


{$product.part_no} <b>{$product.description}</b>


<body bgcolor="{#bgcolor#}">


You can assign variables to specific variable scopes.


An easy way to examine assigned Smarty variables is with the debugging console.
