There are lot more elements in Reno, including the sidebar and many header elements. Setting #wrap { z-index: 0 } also solves the panel issue but still the panels are above menus.

Is there any reason the nav items in Reno have such a high z-index:

@media only screen and (min-width: 960px)
html.AdminThemeReno.headSticky:not(.modal) #masthead {
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 100060;
}

If I put that (and some others) below 100 the Tracy panels seem fine - am I missing something?

Is that such a big issue? If it was possible to turn off the "auto-expand" feature of Tracy (so that it only moves and resizes when adjusted by the mouse) then I could avoid one overlapping the other, right? I prefer Tracy having the highest z-index.

You can always set the panel z-index value in the Tracy settings to something higher than 100060, but I would like to know still if those header elements need to be that high in the Reno sticky header.

Oh yes, thanks, I forgot that... BTW, is there any reason it is called zIndex in the settings? I used the browser's find tool with z-index to no avail :) The settings page is so loooong that normally I navigate by searching.

Just because initially I had to set this with JS which uses zIndex, rather than z-index. I have just changed it locally and it will appear in the next commit.

Hi, i run into problems trying to dump stuff inside a hook attached by a module. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

	public function init()
	{
		// act on invite request
		wire('forms')->addHookBefore('FormBuilderProcessor::processInput', $this, 'processRequestIcfAccess');
	}



	public function processRequestIcfAccess(HookEvent $event)
	{
		// grab the data
		$church = $form->get('church_relation')->value;
		\TD::dump($church);
	}

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'TD' not found in /home/ubuntu/workspace/www/site/modules/IcfModules/IcfProcessInviteRequest.module:115 Stack

I guess Tracy is not loaded when your init fires. You can try to attach your hook in ready() instead of init(). Sidenote: You should also be able to use the d() shortcut method without the Tracy class ;)

Hi @noelboss - as @bernhard noted Tracy isn't loaded yet. I try to load everything as early as possible but I don't have any control over the order in which modules are loaded, so when you make a dump call in init() it's a matter of luck really. Usually I find it works, but occasionally not.

Also, if you are debugging in a method like that, you will most likely want bd() / barDump(), rather than d() / dump() so that the output is to the debug bar, rather than inline.

I'm not sure if this is tracy related or not.

How do you disable the notification requests?

url ?Notifications=update&time=1524147545

The header shows x-tracy-ajax.

This fills and scrolls the console/network pane making it difficult to refer back.

Hi @rick

Those come from the Notifications module (PW core but not installed by default). Personally I really dislike that module and never use it. I don't see a reason to poll the server every 20 seconds for notifications.

Tracy should not be loaded with those calls though - I exclude them here: https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/blob/204db7e404312dc24e8ca39db445e7cfcc9ddd1a/TracyDebugger.module#L309 but I am wondering if maybe the 

if(isset($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'])) {

or one of the other conditions just above is not working as expected on your system. This doesn't prevent those annoying entries in the browser dev console, but it should prevent Tracy from being loaded on each request. The x-tracy-ajax header you are seeing makes me wonder if those checks aren't working for you. Could you please take a look and let me know what is happening in the block of code?

Absolutely! I'll take a look in in a bit when I get back.

I'll also get rid of that notifications module. The only reason I enabled it was I didn't like all the default messages scrolling the content off the screen. I figured notifications would be less intrusive/aggravating/cumbersome?

The UiKit theme collapses notifications by default which is much nicer.

I hadn't noticed. I don't use that theme because of the poor ui, but that is a different story. :)

I disabled the system notification and this issue no longer exists. So this wasn't related to tracy at all, but thanks for your help.

The entries in the Network tab aren't due to Tracy, but I was curious about the Tracy header which I don't believe should be there. Oh well, something for another time I guess.

There was no data associated with  x-tracy-header that I could see (just an empty entry), and it is no longer present since disabling the system notifications.

Concurrent page editing? At least it notifies the user, and often even me :P

AOS has a sticky header option which fixes it. Thanks a lot @tpr !

Didn't think about that. I use Soma's PageEditSoftLock for that. It also polls regularly, only in ProcessPageEdit, not all the time. Also, in general I just find the Notifications UI/UX really annoying and it's also frustratingly difficult to uninstall, but if others like it, then that's why we have options :)

@adrian could you please add an option for the todo-panel to also scan /site/assets ? I always put my files for field configs there (runtime markup, rockgrid etc) so it would be great to have that files scanned as well. Thank you :)

No time to test well, but let me know how it goes. Note that you really want to pay attention to the note suggestion adding files, cache, logs, sessions etc to the ignored dirs. Even then it's still a little slow. 

What do you think of the attached version?

Same here, no time to test it right now, but what do you think of adding a field just like the exclude field but for manual INCLUDEs? Should be quite easy to implement, just pass the content of the field to a $files->find($dir) and scan that files.

You are absolutely right that scanning the caches and compiled files is nonsense. But I think it's not a good solution to have a checkbox for the assets folder and then you have to exclude all unnecessary files... in my case I could just add /site/assets/RockGrid to my field and would have the todos show up in the tracy bar :)

Hi @adrian, I'm experiencing an issue with Tracy in AdminThemeUikit (I don't remember it happening in AdminThemeDefault) where the debug bar forgets its position between page loads. I normally keep the debug bar at bottom right, but it forgets this and jumps up to the top left (sometimes other random locations too). It seems to be related to opening a modal window, with Tracy enabled for modals. See in the screencast below how after opening and closing the modal then reloading the page Tracy is now at the top left of the screen.

tracy.gif.cb395f437f7a83adc5220241b3981232.gif

Hopefully not too tricky to fix. If in fact it is tricky, I wouldn't mind an option that keeps the debug bar locked in the bottom right because personally I never move it from there.

Edit: it does happen in AdminThemeDefault also. Funny, because I always have Tracy enabled for modals and I don't remember this occurring before. Maybe a side-effect of a recent update to the module?

I think that Adrian fixed that in the latest version of Tracy, if I remember correctly...

This is unfortunately a slightly different situation. Both however due to the change in the positioning of the bar's co-ordinates from bottom-right to top-left. I'll look for a fix shortly.

      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.

      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.

      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.
