@adrian Is it possible to view the values submitted on an ajax form and how?

Sure - just check out the RequestInfo panel on the AJAX bar and open up the Input POST section.

Does that get you what you want?

The AJAX bar displays automatically when there has been an AJAX request - you can see this behavior when viewing the Page Tree in the PW admin, or triggering sub items from any of the admin menus, or any AJAX calls you make on the frontend.

You should also see "Redirect" bars when there has been a redirect call.

Do you not see any of these?

Ah yes only on backend I can see the AJAX one. On frontend I can't see it even though the entire site is based on AJAX.

Are you using a JS framework?

You need to make sure the X-Requested-With header is sent so that PHP (and therefore Tracy) can recognize it as an AJAX call. jQuery does this by default, but other frameworks may not, eg Angular.

In pure/vanilla JS, you can do:

xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("X-Requested-With", "XMLHttpRequest");

In Angular you can do:

$http.defaults.headers.common["X-Requested-With"] = "XMLHttpRequest";

I'm using JQuery and on frontend I can see the header X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest but there is no AJAX bar.
On backend there is no X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest header but I can see the AJAX bar.

Can you try this simple example in your template file:

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
$( document ).ready(function() {
    $("#ajaxButton").click(function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            url: "/data/testajax.php?test=1",
            data: {
                id: $(this).val()
            },
            success: function(result) {
                console.log('ok');
            },
            error: function(result) {
                console.log('error');
            }
        });
    });
});
</script>

<input id="ajaxButton" type="submit" name="testAjax" value="Test Ajax" />

 

This is how it looks for me:

Probably a silly question, but do you have Tracy enabled on the frontend?

I haven't changed anything on module settings and yes it's enabled since I already can see the normal bar.

I still can't see the AJAX bar. Maybe the problem is caused by localhost?

Hey @adrian, is there an API to turn Mail Interceptor on, before I send emails from one of my modules?

I would like to catch emails if I am on my local dev server and forgot to enable the Mail Interceptor in the Tracy Debug bar.

I am testing this on localhost.

Actually, I think the issue is probably the contents of the php file (in my example /data/testajax.php) that is being called via ajax. I forgot to provide that to you. It needs to bootstrap PW so that Tracy is also loaded, eg:

<?php

include '../index.php';

Hopefully if you do that, it should work as expected.

It can be handled by the new stuff I set up recently. Have a read here: 

It allows you to set Tracy settings in config.php or config-dev.php (so it's local only).

I think this is probably the best solution. Let me know how you find it and if you have any suggestions for improvements.

PS - there is some further discussion about the instigation of this feature starting around here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/5693-new-module-type-wiremail/?do=findComment&amp;comment=172371

This actually works. I forgot earlier to modify the url.

So it seems the problem is caused from the way I ajaxified the site. Anyway, thanks for the help.

It should be pretty simple to figure out - if you're using jquery, then the only reason I think it wouldn't work is if you're not bootstrapping PW in the called php file. Anyway, good luck getting it sorted out.

Hey @adrian

what do you think of adding a fullscreen button to the dump div right beside the collapse toggles? When having large dumps this could greatly improve readability and it would just need to apply a simple class with these css rules:

element.style {
    position: fixed;
    left: 0;
    top: 0;
    z-index: 99999;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    background-color: #fff;
    overflow: scroll;
}

Then it could turn this:

Into that:

The collapse toggles still work. Of course we'd also need a "close fullscreen" button (or maybe ESC keyboard shortcut?)

Hey @bernhard - I like this, but I am thinking of maybe applying it to the entire results windows, rather than a specific dump result, so it would look like this. This way you would still have fullscreen, but it makes it easier to inspect the different dumps without needing to exit fullscreen and then initiate it on another dump.

Does this seem ok to you?

Sure! 🙂 Maybe - if it is easy - it would also make sense to have a fullscreen for the console code input. But that's only some ideas. Everything works great for me as it is. Just suggestions for improvements.

New version committed that adds a Maximize button to the Console panel as a whole which results in a fullscreen editing and review experience. Thanks to @tpr for his usual tweaks to my styling :)

I also added the regular fullscreen/halfscreen buttons to the Dumps and Dumps Recorder panels. These buttons are on several panels where the content can be quite large - they should have been on these panels all the time really.

Let me know if you have any issues with any of this - hopefully it should make things easier to work with.

Thx Adrian!

@adrian and @tpr any ideas what could be done about that AOS lang-switcher appearing on top of the panel? z-index doesn't seem to help strangely.

Perhaps you can set a higher z-index in Tracy module's settings page, but I'll take a look when I have time.

Thx, the strange thing is that I've already tried a z-index of 999999999999999999999999999999999 on the panel and the language switcher still appears on top?!

z-index is tricky, if a parent element has lower index then you can't make a child element positioned above it. I hope I can modify AOS to overcome this.

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy!
