Inputfield::renderReady() method

Method called right before Inputfield markup is rendered, so that any dependencies can be loaded as well.

Called before Inputfield::render() or Inputfield::renderValue() method by the parent InputfieldWrapper instance. If you are calling either of those methods yourself for some reason, make sure that you call this renderReady() method first.

The default behavior of this method is to populate Inputfield-specific CSS and JS file assets into $config->styles and $config->scripts.

The return value is true if assets were just added, and false if assets have already been added in a previous call. This distinction probably doesn't matter in most usages, but here just in case a descending class needs to know when/if to add additional assets (i.e. when this method returns true).

Usage

// basic usage
$bool = $inputfield->renderReady();

// usage with all arguments
$bool = $inputfield->renderReady($parent = null, bool $renderValueMode = false);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
parent (optional)
renderValueMode (optional)bool

Specify true only if this is for Inputfield::renderValue() rather than Inputfield::render().

Return value

bool

True if assets were just added, false if already added.

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
