Text Placeholders

What are Text Placeholders?

Text Placeholders – Placeholder variables, such as {param2} and {param3}, allow users to simultaneously update multiple ads in your campaign all at once. One or more placeholders can be added to the ad title, ad text, display URL, or destination URL of multiple ads.

Text Placeholders may refer to any of the following:

In computer programming, a placeholder is a character, word, or string of characters that temporarily takes the place of the final data. For example, a programmer may know that she needs a certain number of values or variables, but doesn’t yet know what to input. She can use a placeholder as a temporary solution until a proper value or variable can be assigned.

A placeholder in programming code may also be used to indicate where a specific code needs to be added, but the programmer has not yet written the code. The placeholder reminds the programmer where to add the code, or it can be included to let other programmers know that additional code still needs to be added to any programmer in general.

Placeholders may also be commented out to prevent the computer program from executing part of the code.


Text Placeholders examples

Examples of placeholders in computer programming include the following.

  • < insert splice function here >
  • <– add interest calculation code here –>
  • ‘dim variable1 as a string
  • ; I need to fix this section of code

Alternatively referred to as dummy text or filler textplaceholder text is the text that temporarily “holds a place” in a document for the purpose of typesetting and layout. It may be used to preview fonts, spoof an e-mail spam filter, or reserve a specific place on a web page or other document for images, text, or some other object. For example, the designer of an online newsletter may fill a template with dummy text to approximate the final layout. One of the most common filler texts is lorem ipsum.
