@Macrura, glad you got it working eventually.

I intend to work on an upgrade to this module sometime soon. Hope to add a feature allowing all dialog options to be configured from within a single hook, which will make things easier (for those comfortable writing code anyway). Will also look at adding some clarification that an attribute must first be declared before adding any of the "double underscore" enhancements.

Hey @Robin S - using this for the first time and finding it awesome. Couple of quick questions:

Is there any easy way to prevent codes from being truncated in the dropdown?

Also, what's the best way to change the name of "Insert Hanna tag" - I see that they are translatable (via separate js files), but what's the suggestion for avoiding having changes overridden with module updates?

Thanks!

Hi @adrian,

I just pushed an update that makes those strings translatable within the module file.

As for the other issue, if your tag name is long it can overflow the standard width that CKEditor applies to combo panels (I don't set any explicit width in this module). I could make a config field for panel width but I'd rather not because I think the default width is suitable in most cases and to get a dynamic value from PHP it would mean putting the CSS inline which is kinda ugly. Maybe you could just set your own width for the panel in some custom admin CSS?

.cke_combopanel__hannadropdown { width:300px !important; }

Thanks @Robin S - I sorted out the width with the Admin CSS feature of AOS. 

As for the translatable string - I'm a little unsure how to work with the recent change - I see you went from js language files to using PW's:

$this->_(

but wouldn't that mean I would need multi-language support installed to translate that? It's not a ML site, so that seems like an inefficient solution for me, but I am very tired, so might well be missing something here :)

You would need to install the LanguageSupport module but I don't think there's any inefficiency in doing that. You don't need to actually create any additional languages - you just edit the default language to override whatever strings you want. I believe that's the standard PW way for customising strings so I wouldn't want to reinvent the wheel and create configurable fields for every string.

Yeah, you're probably right - I just haven't ever translated strings from a module before, but it sounds like it's easy - thanks!

@adrian, I just pushed another update in v0.1.5 that will allow the dropdown label in the toolbar to adapt its width to the length of the text (in the case that it is translated).

Hey @Robin S - I am seeing something weird where if I insert more than one code into a block of text. It all looks good until I save the page and then it reloads, and then all the text between the first and last code is highlighted in blue and connected so that's it no longer editable. Can you reproduce?

Thanks!

Also wondering what you might think of an option to disable the dialog popup. For the needs of my current project I just want the dropdown for inserting the tags, but none of the tags have editable attributes so I think it would be preferable to not add the double-click handler on the inserted tags.

Hi @adrian, I regularly use multiple Hanna tags within a single field and haven't seen that issue before.

It sounds like the closing delimiter of the first tag isn't being detected for some reason. I'm thinking that there must be some content in your tag that interferes with the detection of the closing delimiter. Does changing to a different Hanna tag delimiter fix it?

To debug you could try logging the "name" data attribute here, which should be the hanna tag contents without the delimiters.

Edit: actually, if it isn't matching the closing delimiter when the page reloads then it's probably related to the regex here. But it looks correct to me.

I'm not aware of any way to do that. This module uses the widget component of CKEditor, and the dialog for that is defined once for all widgets in the CKEditor instance.

So this is what is being returned:

user_name]]. This is blah [[central_name

so it's removing the opening delimiters from the first tag. I have tried a few different delimiters with no luck so far. Any other thoughts?

@adrian, sorry for the interlude - there was a power cut here. :o

Not sure if you saw the edit to my earlier post: if the widgets are correct when you close the dialog but incorrect when you reload the page then it's an issue with this regex. But it looks correct to me - the pattern should match any number of characters after an opening delimiter up until a closing delimiter. You probably know more about regex than me though - does the pattern look right to you?

Hey @Robin S - no worries - I hear things are a bit backwards in your part of the world :) BTW, I am a displaced Aussie - hope we can still be friends :)

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The issue is that regex is greedy.

You can see the problem here: https://regex101.com/r/ynCWrf/1 

Here is a non-greedy that works fine: https://regex101.com/r/1Qta6X/1

Thanks again for a great module.

When I moved to the deep south I soon found out that a UPS is an essential piece of kit. And the irony is I'm only a short hop from the largest hydroelectric power station in NZ.

Why, of course :-). If you're feeling at all homesick, check out the trailer for this documentary I heard about yesterday:

Not at all. My partner and I had three weeks exploring NT's top end last winter and had nothing but good experiences. The Aussie grey nomad idea is genius - that's how I want to spend my retirement.

Hopefully we are still considered too young to be grey nomads, but we actually did that in May/June of last year, although we were roughing it in the back of a 4wd - no RV for us :) 

Great adventure through some amazing country!

Oh man, I want the best of both worlds - some of those pimped out Aussie 4WD campers are insane! Kiwis love their off-roading but I've never seen such amazing 4WDs until we went to the top end. Some folks have dropped some serious money on those. Proper go-anywhere Landcruisers with every conceivable mod-con built in. Love it.

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      FieldtypeConfigForm.zip
      Edit: 14. August 2018. please delete/uninstall previously downloaded zip

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
