Example block numbering relative to sections

vlad_mihalcea
Is it possible to number the example blocks relative to the section numbers as well?

For example, when the third section starts, all the examples should be numbered as 3.1, 3.2, 3.3.

I am generating a single html document from a bunch of asciidoctor files and the examples start from 1 and go to 50, by the end of the html document.

Thanks,
Vlad

Not currently. There is an open issue that covers this requirement.


Of course, it is possible to renumber blocks using a Treeprocessor extension. You walk the AST and change all the captions. In the process, we may discover other caveats, though.

Cheers,

Thanks for the heads up.  We'll stick to the current numbering scheme for the moment and watch the progress of this issue.

I’m new to this, so I may be way off.

Why not set up a counter for your sections and example? The following appears to work:

[counter:section]
:!part: {counter:part}

Section {counter:section}

Part {section}.{counter:part}

Part {section}.{counter:part}

Part {section}.{counter:part}

Section {counter:section}

:!part: [counter:part]

Part {section}.{counter:part}

Part {section}.{counter:part}

Part {section}.{counter:part}

Mark,

That's certainly possible. However, the aim of AsciiDoc is to keep the content free of any non-essential information and rely on the computer to handle tasks such as numbering. It's very reasonable to expect that the processor to number using different strategies, either as a built-in feature or through an extension.

In general, whenever we see markup being repeated a lot in a document, we always want to try to find a way to factor it out. The goal is to encode the information as efficiently as possible.
