Template Field Widths

Recommended Posts

You were exactly right. It turned out to be the LoginRegister css putting the kabosh on me.

Again thanks for a great module, works perfectly.

First of all, thank you for this great module. Simplifies the whole process a lot.

Now please add Drag 'n' Drop of the fields and support for adding new fields to the template.

Also add field edit links to open the field editor in a popup/pane.

Switching between the field name and the field title would also be nice. And if you could display what fieldtype each field has.

And voilà we have a new and better template manager 🙂

Hey, I am allowed to have dreams.

You can use this to resize via mouse (using jQuery UI Resizable which seems to be present in the PW admin). I haven't checked fieldsets, I've updated the code, it's working fine with fieldsets too.

Spoiler

$(".tfw-item").resizable({
    containment: ".InputfieldContent",
    handles: "e",
    resize: function(event, ui) {
      var percentage = Math.ceil(ui.size.width / ui.element.parent().outerWidth() * 100);
      percentage = Math.min(Math.max(parseInt(percentage), 1), 100);
      ui.element.children("label").find("input").val(percentage);
      ui.element[0].style.width = percentage + "%";
    }
});

// CSS 

.tfw-item .ui-resizable-e {
    position: absolute;
    cursor: e-resize;
    width: 10px;
    right: 5px;
    top: 50%;
    height: 40px;
    transform: translateY(-50%);
    border-right: 1px solid #354b60;
    opacity: 0.5;
}

.tfw-item .ui-resizable-e:hover {
    opacity: 1;
}

.tfw-item .ui-resizable-handle.ui-resizable-e::after {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    top: 7px;
    right: 3px;
    height: 26px;
    width: 1px;
    background: #354b60;
}

.tfw-item:hover,
.tfw-item.ui-resizable-resizing {
    background: #e5ecf6;
}

.tfw-item {
    padding: 3px 14px 8px 10px;
    max-width: 100%;
    transition: none !important;
}

v0.1.6 has a new config option to choose Name or Label as the primary identifier for fields. Whichever isn't chosen becomes the title attribute shown on hover.

Thanks @tpr - in v0.1.6 I added your drag resizing code mostly unchanged. It's not something I think I'll use myself but very cool nonetheless.

Thanks Robin - have you checked the drag resize with tabs? I didn't have time to check that scenario.

You mean fields inside a FieldsetTab? If so then yes, it works well.

Yes, I just checked and I see that they are also under a tab (I thought it's configurable).

Perhaps a minor bug: if I select "Label" as the primary identifier then no text is shown for the field. Imho the module should display the primary identifier, and if not available, the name (as that's always available).

Plus it would be better to put the "title" tag on the main div (.tfw-item) so it would be always available. This introduces another issue: hovering on an input the tooltip still shows but you can disable it by adding an empty title tag to the input (at least it works for Chrome).

Thanks, I always forget about this possibility because in my default site profile I automatically derive field labels from names.

Spoiler

$this->addHookBefore('ProcessField::executeSave', $this, 'autoFieldLabel');

/**
 * Derive field label from field name
 *
 * @param HookEvent $event
 */
protected function autoFieldLabel(HookEvent $event) {
	$post = $this->wire()->input->post;
	// Only for "Add New Field" and only if label is empty
	if(!$this->wire()->input->get->id && !$post->field_label) {
		$post->field_label = ucfirst(str_replace('_', ' ', $post->name));
	}
	// Add hook if field is being cloned
	if($post->clone_field) {
		$this->wire()->addHookBefore('Fields::save', $this, 'autoCloneFieldLabel');
	}
}

/**
 * Derive field label from field name after clone
 *
 * @param HookEvent $event
 */
protected function autoCloneFieldLabel(HookEvent $event) {
	$field = $event->arguments(0);
	if($field->name === $this->wire()->input->post->clone_field) {
		$field->label = ucfirst(str_replace('_', ' ', $field->name));
	}
}

 

Fixed in v0.1.7.

It's actually deliberate the way it is. Title tooltips can be a distracting irritant when you don't have an intention to see them. I wanted there to be some intentionality required for them to appear, so you need to hover the field identifier (which is block level so it's pretty easy to mouse to) rather than having tooltips popping up whenever your mouse is anywhere inside "Field widths".

Thanks for the fix.

Actually the block level field identifier was what made me think that the tooltip was intended to be triggered on the whole block. As it is now on the far right side there is no indication where the tooltip will be triggered when you move the mouse. Perhaps it would be better to restrict it to the identifer text only, or prepending an info icon. Anyway, no biggie.

I created a PR to disallow less then 10% field widths, because PW doesn't allow that:

Quote

The percentage width of this field's container (10%-100%). If placed next to other fields with reduced widths, it will create floated columns.

TFWs allowed setting lower percentages and those values were kept. However, such fields were defaulting to 100%, just like the field's width sliders on the edit field page.

I think I'll leave it for now unless I hear from others who are finding it confusing.

I didn't know PW had that restriction. Thanks, have merged in v0.1.8.

When I try to edit a template that gets its fields from another template, I get an error:

Argument 2 passed to ProcessWire\InputfieldWrapper::insertAfter() must be an instance of ProcessWire\Inputfield, null given, called in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\site\modules\TemplateFieldWidths\TemplateFieldWidths.module on line 152

Possible fix:

if($fg_fields) $form->insertAfter($f, $fg_fields);

v0.1.10 released.

Now that new core ways of setting field widths in template context have been introduced it seems that users are sometimes setting a field width using a core input and then saving the Edit Template form. Although it's not necessary to save the Edit Template form after adjusting a field width using a core input (those settings are AJAX-saved), it's not unlikely that users will do this and in these circumstances the old width stored in the Template Field Widths inputfield was overwriting the new width.

So from v0.1.10 onward the widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only saved if Edit Template is saved with the Template Field Widths inputfield in a open state. And it's recommended to use the default "Collapsed" config option for Template Field Widths if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths.

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so quite often this should be enough to get things rolling 🙂

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life 😉

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Hi everyone, 
      Is there a way for us to replicate the "http://mydomain.com/processwire/page/edit/?id=xxx" and change the template to match my site template? 
      I'm terribly happy with the admin / backend page edit. It covers literaly everything I want to empower my non super admin user in updating pages such as validation, repeater management, file upload. 
      I wish not to allow the users to see the backend for both security and aesthetic reasons. 
      Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack is a new — or rather newish — third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way. Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site — even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you think of Twack🥳!
