This is one of three templates used to automatically add conversions of height measurements displayed by Template:Infobox person and other infoboxes with a |height= parameter.

  1. Template:Infobox person/height changes text for units of height to the abbreviations "m", "cm", "ft", or "in", then passes the string to:
  2. Template:Infobox person/height/locate which replaces any instances of   with a space, and determines the positions of "m", "cm", "ft", or "in" within that string, all of which is passed to:
  3. Template:Infobox person/height/switch which does the conversion

{{Convert}} templates generating wikilinked unit names:

  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|5|ft|2|in|lk=on|abbr=on}}}} → 5 ftin (1.57 m)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|5|ft|2|in|lk=on|abbr=off}}}} → 5 ftin (1.57 [m]]s)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|5|ft|2|in|cm|0|lk=on|abbr=on}}}} → 5 ftin (157 cm)

  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|157|cm|ftin|lk=on|abbr=on}}}} → 157 cm (5 ftin)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|157|cm|ftin|lk=on|abbr=off}}}} → 157 centms (5 ftin)

Exceptions

Does not replace numbers in manually entered conversions, but does replace unit names with abbreviations (examples intentionally show incorrect conversions):

  • {{Infobox person/height|5 feet 2 inches (1.00 metres)}} → 5 ft 2 in (1.00m)
  • {{Infobox person/height|5 feet 2 inches (100 centimetres)}} → 5 ft 2 in (100 centm)
  • {{Infobox person/height|1.57 metres (5 feet 5 inches)}} → 1.57m (5 ft 5 in)
  • {{Infobox person/height|157 centimetres (5 feet 5 inches)}} → 157 centm (5 ft 5 in)

Does not replace numeric output of conversion templates such as {{convert}} or {{height}}, but does replace unit names with abbreviations (examples have different precision than usual):

  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|5|ft|2|in|m|3|abbr=off}}}} → 5 ft 2 in (1.575m)
    • output of convert template: 5 feet 2 inches (1.575 metres)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|5|ft|2|in|cm|sigfig=4|abbr=off}}}} → 5 ft 2 in (157.5 centm)
    • output of convert template: 5 feet 2 inches (157.5 centimetres)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|1.57|m|ftin|1|abbr=off}}}} → 1.57m (5 ft 1.8 in)
    • output of convert template: 1.57 metres (5 feet 1.8 inches)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Convert|157|cm|ftin|1|abbr=off}}}} → 157 centm (5 ft 1.8 in)
    • output of convert template: 157 centimetres (5 feet 1.8 inches)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Height|m=1.57|frac=4|abbr=no}}}} → 1.57m (5 ft 1 34 in)
    • output of convert template: 1.57 metres (5 feet 1 34 inches)
  • {{Infobox person/height|{{Height|cm=157|frac=4|abbr=no}}}} → 157 centm (5 ft 1 34 in)
    • output of convert template: 157 centimetres (5 feet 1 34 inches)

Period at end of abbreviation displays after the conversion:

  • {{Infobox person/height|1.52 m.}} → 1.52 m (5 ft 0 in).
  • {{Infobox person/height|152 cm.}} → 152 cm (5 ft 0 in).
  • {{Infobox person/height|5 ft.}} → 5 ft (152 cm).
  • {{Infobox person/height|60 in.}} → 60 in (152 cm).
  • {{Infobox person/height|5 ft 0 in.}} → 5 ft 0 in (152 cm).

Multiple unit conversions won't work if input contains periods or commas:

  • {{Infobox person/height|5 ft. 2 in}} → 5 ft. 2 in
  • {{Infobox person/height|5 ft, 2 in}} → 5 ft, 2 in

Does not recognize symbols for feet and inches:

  • {{Infobox person/height|5' 2"}} → 5' 2"
  • {{Infobox person/height|5′ 2″}} → 5′ 2″
  • {{Infobox person/height|157cm (5' 2")}} → 157 cm (5 ft 2 in) (5' 2")
  • {{Infobox person/height|157cm (5′ 2″)}} → 157 cm (5 ft 2 in) (5′ 2″)
  • {{Infobox person/height|1.57m (5' 2")}} → 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in) (5' 2")
  • {{Infobox person/height|1.57m (5′ 2″)}} → 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in) (5′ 2″)
