[API] show field label

Recommended Posts

Hi, i've this field:

NAME LABEL TYPE NOTES TEMPLATES

bandiera Flag TextLanguage

1

I also did a search on the forum and the API section but could not find answer, is I use

echo $page->bandiera;

I will only output the value (italia for example), I would rather have as output

LABEL: VALUE (Flag: Italia for example)

thank u...

Welcome to the forums Buothz! Good question. Here's how you could do it:

$language = $languages->get("spanish");
$field = $fields->get('bandiera');
$label = $field->get("label$language");  
echo "$label: $page->bandiera";

If you want a specific other language replace the first line above with this:

$language = $languages->get('italia');

.

Edit: Code fixed first example and changed to make more sense. (Soma)

another little question, to show "FieldsetOpen" and "FieldsetOpenTab" with API?

These two fieldtypes don't have any function outside of the PW PageEdit Process, so aren't really applicable in the API for the most part. Let me know if I've misunderstood your question? If you are building a form elsewhere, it's more likely that you would want to use the InputfieldFieldset:

$form = wire('modules')->get('InputfieldForm');
$form->attr('method', 'post'); 
$form->attr('action', './'); 

$fieldset = wire('modules')->get('InputfieldFieldset'); 
$fieldset->label = 'This is a fieldset';
$fieldset->description = 'Some optional extra copy if you want it.';

$field = wire('modules')->get('InputfieldText');
$field->attr('name', 'title'); 
$field->label = 'Title';

$field->description = 'Extra description';

$fieldset->add($field);
$form->add($fieldset);
echo $form->render();

$field->description = 'Extra description';

$fieldset->add($field);
$form->add($fieldset);
echo $form->render();

Thank you so much for your prompt reply, I just want to take the field and divide them into categories, so I decided to use the fieldset to preserve the multi-language.

For example: http://www.yachtbrok.../barca37016.htm

"specifiche" in English must be specific.

But if I use an editable field risk being edited by the user should not edit it instead ...

To have an ordered structure wanted to use the possibility of fieldset ...

Otherwise I can use simple PHP like IF or SWITCH

if ($_GET['language']=='it') {
echo 'specifiche';
 } else {
 echo 'specifics';
 }

thanks again

You may also want to look at using multi-language fields, or multi-language alternate fields for this (if you aren't already):

http://processwire.com/api/multi-language-support/multi-language-fields/

As for detecting a language from a URL, a GET var is a fine way to go. Though note that you'll want to keep your templates cache settings off, since GET vars aren't cachable. Other options include a URL segment (if turned on in your template) or a subdomain.

A URL segment might look like this (for english): /boats/barca37016/en

if($input->urlSegment1) {
   $language = $languages->get($sanitizer->pageName($input->urlSegment1)); 
   if($language) $user->language = $language; 
}

A subdomain might look like this (for english): en.yachbrokers.com

$name = strstr($config->httpHost, '.', true); // requires PHP 5.3
$language = $languages->get($sanitizer->pageName($name));
if($language) $user->language = $language;
