InputfieldSelectize

A Inputfield to provide a select interface for Processwire CMS FieldtypePage using the (awesome) Selectize.js jQuery plugin, by Brian Reavis.

Selectize: https://github.com/selectize/selectize.js

Modules directory:
http://modules.processwire.com/modules/inputfield-selectize/

Github:
https://github.com/outflux3/InputfieldSelectize

Features

  • Custom designed options and items for any page select field.
  • Your select options can use any field or subfield on the page, but also sub-subfields, or any data you provide, since you are not limited by tag replacement: you control the precise data supplied to the options using a PHP array that returns data to the module, which is in turn supplied in JSON to the select as adata-dataattribute.
  • The plugin uses the JSON object for each option meaning you can do whatever you want with that data in designing your options/items.
  • Each instance lets you define which fields are searchable for the select
  • Your selects can use display logic based on the value of any field/data item, for example using ternery conditionals you can avoid empty parenthesis.
  • You can design the options and items (what is seen once an option is selected) independently of each other. Therefore you could have special fields on the options for searching, but exclude those on the item. Likewise you can show elements on your item like an edit button which is not needed on the option.
  • Multiselect pages are sortable, and deletable by backspace or optional remove button.
  • When AceExtended editor is installed, the module will use that for the code input fields.

Usage

  • Install the Module
  • Edit your pagefield and choose InputfieldSelectize as inputfield.
  • You will see the empty fields that need to be populated to make this work

Notes

For examples of what you can do (in general) with your selects when using Selectize.js, view the plugin site at http://selectize.github.io/selectize.js/.

The plugin theme is selected on the required JquerySelectize module

-----

Examples

Basic Example

PHP (the data array for each item - this must return a plain array):

$data = array(
    'title' => $page->title,
    'company' => $page->company_select ? $page->company_select->title : 'Not set',
    'total' => count($page->recipients),
    'editUrl' => $page->editUrl
);

return $data;


Javascript (item and option same)
Here, the item.property each refer to the keys of the PHP array that you returned in the above field.
This field must be a valid Javascript string with each of the properties you want to show as demonstrated below, and recommended to use the escape(item.property) syntax. These strings are passed to the render functions of the plugin.

'<div class="item">' +
'<span style="display:block;font-size:14px;font-weight:bold;">' + escape(item.title)  + ' (' + escape(item.total) + ')</span>' +
'<span>' + escape(item.company) + '</span>' +
'</div>'


Example screenshot:
if_selectize_multi-fw.jpg

A more advanced example

This example shows how to use conditionals for the PHP and JS to get the select options to look clean and provide the necessary information to assist users in choosing the correct options:

PHP

$data = array(
  'title' => $page->title,
  'year' => $page->year ?: $page->year_sort,
  'for_inst' => $page->for_inst,
  'edit_href' => $page->editUrl
);

return $data;


Item Javascript:

'<div class="item">' +
'<div style="color: black; font-size: 14px;"><span style="font-weight:bold;">' + escape(item.title) + ' (' + escape(item.year) + ')</span>' +
' <a class="pw-modal pw-modal-medium" href="' + escape(item.edit_href) + '">Edit <i class="fa fa-edit"></i></a></div>' +
(item.for_inst ? '<div style="color:gray;">for ' + escape(item.for_inst) + '</div>' : '') +
'</div>'


Option Javascript:

'<div class="item" style="width:100%;">' +
'<div style="color: black; font-size: 14px;"><span style="font-weight:bold;">' + escape(item.title) + ' (' + escape(item.year) + ')</div>' +
(item.for_inst ? '<div style="color:gray;">for ' + escape(item.for_inst) + '</div>' : '') +
'</div>'

 

Example with images

In this example the selects will feature a thumbnail image:
You could also set the width of the selected item to 100% depending on where you place the field (e.g. in a column)
 

$image = $page->images->first();
$thumb = $image->size(100,100);

$data = array(
    'title'       => $page->title,
    'thumb_src'   => $thumb ->url,
    'img_dims'    => $image->width . 'x' . $image->height,
    'img_desc'    => $image->description,
    'img_size'    => $image->filesizeStr,
    'edit_src'    => $page->editUrl
);

return $data;

 

'<div class="item" style="width:100%;">' +
    '<div class="image-wrapper" style="float:left;"><img src="' + escape(item.thumb_src) + '" alt=""></div>' +
    '<div class="info-wrapper" style="float:left; padding:5px;">' +
    '<span style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold">' + escape(item.title) + '</span><br>' +
        '<span>Dimensions: ' + escape(item.img_dims) + 'px</span><br>' +
        '<span>Filesize: ' + escape(item.img_size) + '</span><br>' +
        '<span>' + escape(item.img_desc) + '</span><br>' +
        '<a class="pw-modal pw-modal-medium" href="' + escape(item.edit_src) +
        '">Edit <span class="ui-icon ui-icon-extlink"></span></a></div>' +
'</div>'

 

'<div class="item">' +
    '<div class="image-wrapper" style="float:left;"><img src="' + escape(item.thumb_src) + '" alt=""></div>' +
    '<div class="info-wrapper" style="float:left; padding:5px;">' +
    '<span style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold">' + escape(item.title) + '</span><br>' +
    '</div>' +
'</div>'

Current Notes & Issues:

  • Works with 3.0.23 devns
  • Doesn't currently support creating new options (and may exhibit strange behavior if you try and add one not in the list)
  • Doesn't yet support optgroups

Hi, I've added the base Selectize module from http://modules.processwire.com/modules/jquery-selectize/

but when I add it to my modules folder on my processwire site it completely breaks the site just by existing in the folder! I get a 500 Internal Server error and I've tried deleting and re-adding the files to double-check and it's definitely being caused by the Selectize folder.

Any ideas what's happening? Is there a problem with the source files?

I'm guessing php version, i will probably need to either change the code to make it work for earlier PHP versions; all of my hosting is now > 5.4. What php version are you on?

right, sorry about that, i need to put in a >5.4 in the requirements because i'm using the fancy array notation which will 500 on earlier than 5.4

So in other words, this module doesn't particularly need to be on 5.4 (could change the code), but on the other hand <5.4 is considered EOL and insecure i think;

You may run into other modules that also have a > 5.4 requirement

If you feel that this module should support 5.3 let me know and i will update it

Thanks, I agree that >5.4 is ideal, although that is currently out of my control on the particular server I'm using.

Hopefully I can get around it without you having to update the module.

Hi @Macrura, a feature request: could you extend SelectizeImageTags to provide tagging support for File fields too? Hopefully not too difficult as I think the field types are quite similar. Thanks in advance!

Also, I noticed a few issues with SelectizeImageTags:

1. The "Selectable Tags " inputfield shows "0" when the module has just been installed and no tags have yet been added. Maybe that's normal.

2017-03-13_173356.png.2a5be9e4166eb85ff3e0ac403fb6109b.png

2. Line 129 isn't producing a proper array of tags in my Windows localhost environment. Changing to from PHP_EOL to "\n" did the trick but not sure if that's a fix that would work on all platforms.

3. The JS isn't initialising when the image field's visibility is set to "Closed + load only when opened (AJAX)", or when the field is inside an AJAX-loaded repeater item.

OK sure -makes sense to add tags to files, will work on it asap..

#1, it is sort of a hack, since there needs to be a value in the field for it to work right; i never really figured out how to fix that one, but might be able to now.

for #2, i always thought that PHP_EOL would be environment neutral, because it is the constant for new line, independent of platform, but i guess it may not work in the context of exploding the newlines from a textarea, so i will change that.

#3 - yes, don't know how to fix that AJAX thing, maybe i need to change from document.ready to something else, will look into it;

#3 try "reloaded" event on the input field. You might check code in aos, eg for inputfieldurlchecker.

Re #3: I'm not really up to speed on renderReady(), but because you are hooking an existing inputfield I think you may need to use the new renderReadyHook() hookable method, as hooking render() doesn't work so well for ajax fields when adding JS dependencies. This GitHub issue has a bit of background.

Since the selectize image tags refers to the image fieldtype a lot, seems easiest to just clone that module and make a version that works with file fields - do you see any extra overhead in doing it that way, might be the cleanest/quickest way to accomplish

I think all that might be needed is to change instances of "InputfieldImage" to "InputfieldFile" and the module will work for both File and Image fields (because InputfieldImage extends InputfieldFile). I checked it quickly and it seemed to work, but might need some more testing or someone with deeper knowledge to verify.

I could test it in my current project and report back, but the thing is that I need the file tagging to work inside an ajax-loaded repeater or else I have to go with a different approach. I've had a little look at the JS side of things but haven't been able to figure out what needs to change in order to get that working - particularly around the use of the PW JS config array when a field is ajax-loaded.

haven't tested yet but was going to put the init into a function and then do this;

$(document).on('ready reloaded wiretabclick opened', initSelectize);

Hi @Macrura,

I made a pull request for SelectizeImageTags with fixes for AJAX-loaded fields, repeaters, and for new image uploads. For AJAX-loaded fields and repeaters it was necessary to hook the relatively new renderReadyHook() instead of render(). So as a result the minimum required PW version is 3.0.61. If that is a concern there is a completely different approach possible that could support older versions but it has its own shortcomings. Happy to discuss if you like.

I forgot to include the change mentioned above:

Maybe you could make that change too.

And when you get a chance could you look at applying similar changes to InputfieldSelectize so that will support AJAX-loading/repeaters also? Thanks. :)

The only issue i see is that i know i have this running on a few 2.7.3 sites – perhaps there should be a version check within the module and then use different method to support legacy?

I would say that anyone already using the module on older websites is probably happy enough with the existing functionality and should stick with v0.0.2. PW will show a warning for anyone trying to upgrade that does not meet the minimum version dependency. Not sure if the Upgrades module will actually refuse to upgrade in such a situation (I don't have an easy way to check) but you could include an additional warning advising to revert to v0.0.2:

/**
 * Upgrade
 */
public function ___upgrade($fromVersion, $toVersion) {
    // Upgrade from < v0.0.3
    if($fromVersion < 3) {
        if($this->config->version < '3.0.61') {
            throw new WireException("The minimum required ProcessWire version is 3.0.61. Please revert to Selectize Image Tags v0.0.2");
        }
    }
}

      Repeater Images
      Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.
      When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.
      Screencast

      Installation
      Install the Repeater Images module.
      Setup
      Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)". Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also. Repeater Images configuration
      Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox. In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown. Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit). Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.
      Image uploads feature
      There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.
      To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.
      It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.
      New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.
      Tips
      The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time. The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image": {image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library
      https://twitteroauth.com/

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
       
      Backend
