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>'

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?

Ah, that might be it. I'm on 5.3.10. I can't currently update but I might be able to switch server. I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks for your reply. :)

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");
        }
    }
}

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      Since 0.0.4, instructions and changelog can be found in the README only. You can find it here  🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github, thanks!

      Sorry for the convoluted title. I have a problem with Process modules that define a custom page using the page key through getModuleInfo (as demonstrated in this excellent tutorial by @bernhard). Those pages are created automatically when the module is installed. The problem is that the title of the page only gets set in the current language. That's not a problem if the current language (language of the superuser who is installing the module) is the default language; if it isn't, the Process page is missing a title in the default language. This has the very awkward effect that a user using the backend in the default language (or any other language) will see an empty entry in the setup menu:

      This screenshot comes from my Cache Control module which includes a Process page. Now I realize the description sounds obscure, but for us it's a common setup: We a multiple bilingual sites where the default language is German and the second language is English. While the clients use the CMS in German, as a developer I prefer the English interface, so whenever I install a Process module I get this problem.
      As a module author, is there a way to handle this situation? I guess it would be possible to use post-installation hooks or create the pages manually, but I very much prefer the declarative approach. The page title is already translatable (through the __ function), but of course at the time of installation there is no translation, and as far as I'm aware it's not possible to ship translations with a module so they are used automatically. Could this situation be handled better in the core? I would prefer if the module installation process would always set the title of the Process page in the default language, instead of the language of the current user.
