one thing i'm missing sometimes on the template editor is a shortcut for editing field widths. a slider from 10 - 100% instantly changing the fields width would be a great addition in my opinion :) often changing one field's width makes it necessary to change the other field's width as well (eg adding a field to a row of 4 fields with 25% makes it necessary to change all fields to 20%

it would be great to add the field and drag all field's width from 25 to 20 without the need to open each fields settings, clicking on the display tab, changing value, saving field, closing modal...

all other settings are fine being available behind one click.

By not reading the manual? :)

Field width changing would be great, provided that a good and simple GUI could be found. My first idea was to change the asm fields width according to the field widths, that would allow instant visual feedback, and allow field width change by dragging their right side. I haven't used such Js library so I don't know how hard that would be to implement.

i think the most simple solution would be to make the status text on the right edge of asm select clickable and link directly to the second tab:

<span class="asmListItemStatus">Text 33%</span> --> editurl#inputfieldConfig

would that work? it would save 1 click per field and would still need 1 click to save. maybe 1 inputfield per field directly inside the asm select would be even better? then it would be really easy to change multiple fields in a very short time...

btw: has anyone ever kind of a "newline"-field? for example if you have different number of fields in one line depending on field dependencies. if you have 2 lines with columns < 100% that can lead to wrong field orders. workaround is to put those fields inside a fieldset, but i think there could be a better solution...

I dont think there is such field, I would perhaps add some CSS to fix (clear or before-after pseudos).

thank you tpr for the new update :) also thank you for the css fix. didn't think about that!

what do you think of adding often used widths as a clickable shortcut to the form? clicking it could also save + close the modal :)

shortcuts could be

  • 20
  • 25
  • 33
  • 34
  • 40
  • 50
  • 60
  • 75
  • 80
  • 100

Not sure about this, it wouldn't save too much time imo. Auto save would be also an issue because users could have edited other fields and perhaps they wouldn't like to save.

I tried it on two servers (livehost), in a subdir and in the root.

You could try to uncomment the series of bd() calls in line 913 and further down in 961 to see what paths/urls AOS tries to use (requires Tracy Debugger).

You can update the module from the directory as it contains these fixes.

Sorry for delay in respond, Just returned home from out of town during holiday.  Pardon for my ignorance, Tracy Debugger? Is that PW modules? Plugin? I have looked into this https://processwire.com/blog/posts/introducing-tracy-debugger/ and still not yet sure understand how or where I can preform debugging. Can you explain?

Yes, Tracy Debugger is a module which can help you find problems with your code or in others code as in this case too.

Once you install it and see the "Debugger bar" (refer to the introduction post you linked above) then if you uncomment those lines I mentioned you should see the values if you click on the bar. This way you can see why the path/url differs.

Okay, Tracy Debugger module is installed, I 've uncomment  line :913 bd($ckeCSS);  and :961 bd($adminCSS); on AdminOnSteroids.module inside .AdminOnSteroids directory.I have read and followed carefully, I understand am supposed to look for debug bar once debugger is installed. Apparently, its not show any bar. I use chrome browser with firelogger installed. Yes, I've confirmed debugger is enabled, The bar to display at front and back is checked, the uncommented, line 913 and 961 and cleared cache after Tracy debugger module is installed. 



Now I am getting confused... what am I missing?

@Speed - if this is on a non local server, you will either need to force to "Development" mode (change from Detect), or check the "Force superuser development mode" button.

Tracy must be in development mode to show the debug bar. If it's a remote server, DETECT will determine that it should be in PRODUCTION mode.

@adrian - Enabling 'Development' mode got debugger bar to show up. (PW in livehost) Thank you. 

@tpr - let me guess, is that what I should look for??

v119 comes with a new "Apply to all" button to update all dropdowns with the selected option on the "Add field to templates" page (see the screen capture below), requested by @gmclelland

I've also updated the "Remove all" button on the field deletion confirmation page. Now it reads "Check all" and the default submit button can be used for deletion instead. The same "Check all" button is added to the other field deletion confirmation page (accessed from the Field edit page, Actions tab).

All these are under the "Misc" submodule. Please re-check the checkbox "Add helper buttons to batch field add/remove confirmation pages" because it was renamed.

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.
