Uploading multiple PDFs in repeater field

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am trying to upload multiple PDF files into one repeater field.

The exact situation is, if someone submits the form.

  • make newItem in repeater
  • add all the PDFs in newItem.

every thing is working without repeaters(files not getting replaced). But in repeater, only last file remains exist.Other PDFs getting replaced from the newItem field of repeater.

My code looks like-

$p2= pages->get($id);
$pdfs = new WireUpload('f_plan'); 
    $pdfs->setMaxFiles(8);
    $pdfs->setOverwrite(false);
    $pdfs->setDestinationPath($upload_path);
    $pdfs->setValidExtensions(array('pdf','xps'));

// execute upload and check for errors
    $pdf_files = $pdfs->execute();
    echo count($pdf_files); //count is working
    if(!count($pdf_files))
    {
    $pdfs->error("Sorry, but you need to add a photo!");
    return false;
    }
    
    foreach($pdf_files as $filename)
    {
    $p2->of(false);
    $new_rep = $p2->floor_plan_rep->getNew();
    $p2->save();
    echo $pathname = $upload_path . $filename;  //all the urls are okey
    $new_rep->floor_plan = $pathname;     
    $p2->save();
    $p2->of(true);
    unlink($pathname);
    }
   

Also it is making one extra blank repeater field inside repeater.(I know something is wrong and something is missing in my code. :undecided: ).

Please help.

Thanks

I had this exact same problem trying to save multiple repeater pages and came here from Google.
I know it is listed in the docs (i didn't read correctly) but i will add the answer here for any future googlers.

Taken directly from the docs.

$building = $page->buildings->getNew();
$building->title = 'One Atlantic Center';
$building->feet_high = 880;
$building->num_floors = 50;
$building->year_built = 1997;
$building->save();
$page->buildings->add($building);
$page->save();

 

 

When creating a new repeater page you need to save it and add it to the repeater field on the page and then save to page.

With hindsight it's pretty obvious but i wasted way to much time wrapping my head around it.

      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate a repeater item from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

      Wouldn’t it be cool to have whole repeater items (or even repeater matrix items) language-specific. Some of my clients do have pages that are 90% identical in German and English, but there are some sections that should not appear in one or another language. I attached a concept screenshot.
      Would something like this be possible with some simple backend hooks and "hidden checkbox fields"? Or is it way more complicated?

      Hello forum,
      This is really a weird one, because front end editing works in a earlier website we did to a customer. 
      When I check the source code for current website it does initiate front end edit: 
      <span id=pw-edit-1 class='pw-edit pw-edit-InputfieldPageTitle' data-name=title data-page=1021 data-lang='1017' style='position:relative'><span class=pw-edit-orig>Tekijät</span><span class=pw-edit-copy id=pw-editor-title-1021 style='display:none;-webkit-user-select:text;user- select:text;' contenteditable>Tekijät</span></span>  But when I double click nothing happens (yes I'm 100% sure I'm superuser and logged in)
      I also tried to apply the front end with other methods than:
      $page->edit('title'); But didn't work either.
      We are using jquery 2.2.4, so it should not be a problem.
      Is this a bug related to current master or something else?
      Someone else having this problem as well?

      Hi again, after trying pages2PDF, RockPDF and mpdf I'm not sure which of them I should use. Of course, there is also wirePDF.
      I merged mpdf with rockPDF, add a footer and a page in Landscape and that works, like in the code-snippet below but be am I on the right way?
      After that I tried a couple of times rendering an image. Nothing happend, the same with Pages2PDF too. I also copied an Image-URL within processwire and tried further getting an Image within the PDF-Document, but it still display only the red marked placeholder.
      I simply would like create an PDF on click from some Pages including the Images.
      Are there special requirements on Debian 10 with Apache and php 7.3 using Processwire 3.0.123.?
      Is there a guide that I didn't found?
      Is somebody out there who has a similar issue solved and would you be so kind to explain?
       
      $pdf = $modules->get('RockPdf'); $mpdf = $pdf->mpdf; # $mpdf->showImageErrors = true; $pdf->set('SetHeader', 'header text'); $mpdf->AddPage('L'); # $mpdf->Image(urlencode('site/assets/files/1845/image-2.275x200.jpg'), 0, 0, 210, 297, 'jpg', '', true, false); $pdf->set('SetFooter', ' <table width="100%"> <tr> <td width="33%">{DATE j.m.Y}</td>        <td width="33%" align="center">{PAGENO}/{nbpg}</td> <td width="33%" style="text-align: right;">whatever</td> </tr> </table>'); $pdf->show(); // generate pdf

      Greetings,
       
      I've ran into an issue with adding a repeater field to a template.
      The page editor in the backend shows the fields and the data attached to the fields, including the repeater.
       
       
      However, when viewing the template in the front-end, there is no sign of a repeater field in the data set.
      ["data"]=> array(3) { ["name1189"]=> string(11) "partenaires" ["status1189"]=> string(1) "1" ["title"]=> string(8) "Partners" } } Do u have any idea what could be causing this issue?
      I've tried recreating the field and there is no caching active, but still can't get the repeater in the data set.
