1``parent``

4When a template uses inheritance, it's possible to render the contents of the
5parent block when overriding a block by using the ``parent`` function:
6
7.. code-block:: html+twig
8
9    {% extends "base.html" %}
10
11    {% block sidebar %}
12        <h3>Table Of Contents</h3>
13        ...
14        {{ parent() }}
15    {% endblock %}
16
17The ``parent()`` call will return the content of the ``sidebar`` block as
18defined in the ``base.html`` template.
