Use API to update a "select" field

Recommended Posts

I have a page that has a field that contains a page.

How do I use the API to update a page select field in the page's page?

Example:

User page has field "member" which points to a member page.

Member page has field "gender" which points to page for selecting gender.

How do I change the page the gender points to from the user page?

I've tried 

$user->member->gender = 123;

 where 123 is the new page ID.

Also, 

$user->member->set("gender", 123);

Both of these seem not to work.

This works for me:

$user->of(false);
$user->member->gender = 123;
$user->member->save("gender");

EDIT: or for something even simpler using the new method introduced in 2.6.9 (https://processwire.com/blog/posts/processwire-2.6.9-core-updates-and-new-procache-version/#new-page-gt-setandsave-method):

$user->member->setAndSave('gender', 123);

As adrian's answer shows you'll need to save the member page, not the user. The user page just holds the reference to the member page, but the fielddata of both pages are fully unrelated to one another.

      As an admin I want to use the API to ask if a page is published - using the $page->isPublished() method - so that I know it's published - as opposed to unpublished or trashed pages. That includes hidden pages.
      This method will correspond to Settings -> Status when editing pages:

      (Published is also mentioned explicitly where the edit page says "Published on [?]".)
      I would expect the API - and specifically the $page->hasStatus() method - to ask if a page has status published.
      But as I can see, it's only possible to ask for exceptions such as isUnpublished() and isHidden().
      <?php // This fails with "Fatal Error: Uncaught Error: Undefined class constant 'statusPublished'" if($page->hasStatus(Page::statusPublished)) { echo 1; } ?> PS: My current use case is that I want to count number of published vs. unpublished pages. I can only do that by getting all pages (include=all), then subtract any unpublished pages.

      My clients wants a modal to show up on every page. But when a user clicks inside the modal -> a session-cookie is set and the modal gets a class.
      // user clicks on modal button $('.modal_button').click(function(){ // 1. set PW session cookie // 2. toggle class $('.modal').toggleClass('off'); }); I know how to set a cookie on page-load via PW-API. But the click on the modal button does not force a page-load. So i have to set the cookie through javascript. Is there a way to do that?

      Hello,
      I'm trying to create a page via api and populate values to it. I can populate everything except user pages to a page reference array.
      Code: 
      $dataUsers = $data->project->users; foreach($dataUsers as $dataUser) { $newProject->projectUsers->add(wire()->pages->find('template=user, id=' . $dataUser->id)); } I'm receiving my data via JSON.
      Is there something I'm missing?
      Thanks for help

      Hi, this is the first we are trying to make a page that has only one type of user that has access to every page. 
      The other users should only have a given access to specific pages, not to the whole template.
      My structure
      -Field -Organisation -Project -Report I want that the "measurer" role only has access to "project x" and it's children, but no view access to every project, organisation or field. I've tried to do this with https://modules.processwire.com/modules/page-edit-per-user/ but it still needs a view access to the whole tree to see the "project x" page. Or is there something I haven't figured out?
      Maybe I have to make it via the API: a select field in the "organisation" template where the admins could add the users and then I use hook to update the privileges?
      Have you done something like this and how did you accomplish it?
      Any help would be appreciated.
