Inputfield::set() method

Set a property or attribute to the Inputfield

  • Use this for setting properties like parent, collapsed, required, columnWidth, etc.
  • You can also set properties directly via $inputfield->property = $value.
  • If setting an attribute (like name, id, etc.) this will work, but it is preferable to use the Inputfield::attr() method.
  • If setting any kind of "class" it is preferable to use the Inputfield::addClass() method.

Example

// Set a value for a property
$item->set('foo', 'bar');

// Set a property value directly
$item->foo = 'bar';

// Set a property using array access
$item['foo'] = 'bar';

Usage

$inputfield = $inputfield->set(string $key, mixed $value);

Arguments

Name of property to set

“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
