XBRL Element

The Insert XBRL Element command inserts any of the following XBRL elements as a template:

 

Context: Creates an empty xbrli:context element template. The location where the template is inserted determines what context element is selected. The content of the template will have to be created.
Periods: The three empty period templates match three period elements: period; startDate; and endDate. Note that startDate and endDate are children of the period element. There is no template for the instant element, which is also an allowed child of period; however, since instant can only occur as an only child of period, the built-in XSLT templates will select the instant template automatically if templates are applied (xsl:apply-template) to the period template (with the contents placeholder, for example).
Identifier: Creates an empty template for the identifier element.
Unit: Creates an empty template to match the unit element. You can create a global template for xbrli:measure, and use this locally within the Unit template to actually generate the monetary unit.
Footnote: Creates a template that matches the footnote element. Footnotes have two parts: a reference and the actual footnote text.
