1 theming_example.module theming_example_list_page()

The list page callback.

An example page where the output is supplied as an array which is themed into a list and styled with css.

In this case we'll use the core-provided theme_item_list as a #theme_wrapper. Any theme need only override theme_item_list to change the behavior.
