@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.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      Croppable Image 3
      for PW 3.0.20+
      Module Version 1.1.16
      Sponsored by http://dreikon.de/, many thanks Timo & Niko!
      You can get it in the modules directory!
      Please refer to the readme on github for instructions.
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Updating from prior versions:
       
      Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:
      In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      For updating from the legacy Thumbnail / CropImage to CroppableImage3 read on here.

      UPDATE: I have published a stable version of this module!
      Discussion thread:
      Github: https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      ---
      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:
