Module: RuntimeMarkup Fieldtype & Inputfield

Recommended Posts

i have one type of button that submits via ajax so does all of the processing without opening a new window; some of my more primitive versions just open a new window to run the action...

yeah, i also went with ajax for now. but it's strange that it worked before... and it seems more complicated now than necessary and with pw that's usually the feeling when something is wrong :)

so what changed since your example here? and how could i detect clicks on buttons?

 

Nothing has changed. It works just fine. If you use $input->post in your 'my-file.php', it will work as expected. If used directly in 'Copy Paste' code, it won't.

For buttons, that would have to be JS from what I see. E.g., dump this after if($copy) {} in my example in the quoted post:

echo '<pre>';
print_r($input->post);
echo '</pre>';
exit;

You will see all the POST values (but no 'submit_save' there; I guess the post is submitted in some other way) including the 'Create Copy' button, body fields, etc. So, to detect submit button, you could do the following in your 'my-file.php':

if($input->post->title) {
// blah blah
}

Hi Kongondo

Thanks for this great module! I use it on several templates and in the frontend everything works fine. I use it mainly to concatenate text… Now i have a firstname and lastname field on the user that i combine into a single runtimemarkup field "fullname" – it displays correctly in the frontend but the backend profile page does not display the computed value: return $page->firstname." ".$page->lastname;

Any ideas on why that could happen?

@noelboss - have you tried using TracyDebugger yet? You could get that going and then troubleshoot the contents of the $page in the profile editor; you may also be able to see warnings and errors when using Tracy. Using it is pretty much required if you are doing any serious dev work in the backend.

Welcome to the forums. Glad you find the module useful.

Regarding your question, it's hard to tell without seeing some code. Are you using the field directly in the ProcessWire user template or you have some other pseudo page for users?

I'm guessing he is talking about the profile edit interface (ProcessProfile). There are a couple of places where the module assumes/requires ProcessPageEdit.

Hi all. 

I am intending to ONLY support ProcessWire 3.x starting from the next version of this module. Please have a read here and let me know what you think. Thanks.

Is it possible to use field collapsed status with this - since the module itself doesn't have a value that can trigger 'populated' status (?)... I'm using a lot of these on a page , but need keep them all open...

Aren't they all staying open?

oops, mis-typed, i meant keep closed when blank; they do stay open if set to open.

I guess maybe i need to make sure my code returns empty for this to work; will check again.

Can't believe I discovered this awesome module only recently... I mean, it's over 2 years old now already :o

Here's another use-case:

I'm getting a strange glitch with this.  I'm on PW 3.0.9.  If I put my code directly into the field it works fine, but if I try to use an external file using return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('runtime.php');  the page is always returned as page id 10, not the the page I'm on.   

Not tragic as I can put the code directly in the field but would be better to have it external if possible.

Thanks!

That's because the code (in the field) is locally scoped so that $page refers to the page you are editing. However, if using wireRenderFile(), you need to get the page being edited yourself. When editing a page, the page (named) edit is what ProcessWire assigns to $page. The page edit has the id 10. So, what you need is code like below to get the page being edited:

$currentPage = '';
$process = wire('process'); 
if($process && $process->className() == 'ProcessPageEdit') $currentPage = $process->getPage();
if(!$currentPage) return;
// if you get here $currentPage is the page being edited

More in this post. Sorry, this should be in the docs. I will update the docs at some point (when I get the time).

Hope this helps.

Is it possible to use this field on a custom user template ? 

I'm trying but if I just put "return $page->id" in the field I have an error  "Undefined variable: page" ...
If I try with a external file, I have $page but It's the "users" parent page and not the user I'm editing 

:(

I haven't tried, sorry. I'll check when I get a bit of time. I've never used the custom user template feature so will have to do a bit of reading first. Have you tried with wire('page')? This post might also be handy (i.e. establishing process context)

Hey @kongondo - would you consider adding this to the module please?

$f = $this->modules->isInstalled('InputfieldAceExtended') ? $this->modules->get('InputfieldAceExtended') : $this->modules->get('InputfieldTextarea');

in the ___getConfigInputfields method?

Thanks!

It would also be good to have:

$f->rows = 20;

or even make it configurable.

One other thing - because InputfieldAceExtended is not in inline mode, you need <?php to force code highlighting, but your module doesn't allow this. Would you mind stripping out any <?php that is added so that this works? This should do it:

$str = eval(str_replace('<?php', '', $this->runtimeFields));
$str = eval(str_replace('<?php', '', $field->runtimeFields));

One each for FieldtypeRuntimMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup.

Thanks!

But still I think using your IDE is the best option for larger code snippets... No need for ACE then. I'm still unsing my render replacement hook

I still think it's nice to have even for short snippets, but maybe that's just me? If nothing else it lets you actually use the tab key to indent which you can't do in a normal textarea.

Sure it's nice :) I think this was lost in translation :) I meant if you are using the IDE you don't need ACE, but of course it's nice to have it in the backend. The Tracy Console is a perfect example. I'm using ACE myself in several projects

Sorry @kongondo - me again :)

I am noticing that the renderMarkup() method is called many times on the currently edited page and it's also called on page reference fields on the page being edited. This makes for a lot of calls to this method that don't seem necessary as far as I can tell. Do you think this can be improved?

As an example, I put: bd($page->id); at the top of that method and saw this:

image.thumb.png.37bb806099db03174abb5d1ffeea5e9a.png

I am currently editing page 1100, but there are a few page reference fields which are also showing up in that list.

Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks @adrian. I'll look at these when I upgrade the module to PW3.x-support only. I have no ETA though, I'm afraid.

Hey @kongondo - seems like it's all because of the ___wakeupValue and ___sleepValue methods. Is there any reason they can't just return true, rather than returning $this->renderMarkup($page, $field); ?

Thanks!

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
