1 page_example.module page_example_arguments($first, $second)

A more complex page callback that takes arguments.

This callback is mapped to the path 'examples/page_example/arguments/%/%'.

The % arguments are passed in from the page URL. In our hook_menu() implementation, we instructed the menu system to extract the last two parameters from the path and pass them to this function as arguments.

This function also demonstrates a more complex render array in the returned values. Instead of just rendering the HTML with a theme('item_list'), a #theme is attached to the list so that it can be rendered as late as possible, giving to other parts of the system a chance to change it if necessary.

See backdrop_render() for further details.
