How to prompt for page within Include Page macro?

This is my first user macro. I want it to include the Include Page macro. I got this example from the Confluence documentation:

 

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="include">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="">
    <ac:link>
      <ri:page ri:content-title="My chocolate page" ri:space-key="DOC"/>
    </ac:link>
  </ac:parameter>
</ac:structured-macro>

 This would work fine if I wanted the user macro would always connect to the same page, but I want mine to open a dialog and prompt for "Page to Include", the way the Include Page macro normally does.

I can't find the instructions to do that. I thought if I deleted the "ri" tag, it would prompt me, but that doesn't seem to work.

If you need to prompt for a page to include, then you have to include parameters in your user macro:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/user-macro-template-syntax-223906130.html

and then you'll have to parse the result yourself. Here is a small example that should work:

## @param PageToInclude:title=Page to Include|type=confluence-content|required=true|desc=To specify a page in a different space, use SPACEKEY:Page Title.

#if ( $paramPageToInclude.indexOf(":") == -1 )
#set ( $spaceKey = $space.key )
#set ( $contentTitle = $paramPageToInclude)
#else
#foreach ( $part in $paramPageToInclude.split(":") )
#set ( $spaceKey = $part )
#break
#end
#foreach ( $part in $paramPageToInclude.split(":") )
#set ( $contentTitle = $part )
#end
#end

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="include">
<ac:parameter ac:name="">
<ac:link>
<ri:page ri:content-title="$contentTitle" ri:space-key="$spaceKey"/>
</ac:link>
</ac:parameter>
</ac:structured-macro>

I suspected there was a reason I should learn JavaScript...
