Selector Inputfield question: define fields in results preview

Recommended Posts

I wonder if it is possible to customize the inputfield selector: It's working fine as is, but when you click on "matches the following pages", the modal shows columns which sometimes don't make sense (e.g. if I select template=basic_page, I get fields first_name + last_name). That was probably my column selection I made the last time I used the default Finder Lister.

Are those stored in cookies or sessions? It would be nice to define preview-columns in the field instance itself, after the initial selector definition.

Someone got an idea?

It looks like there are many settings that can be defined for InputfieldSelector, but only initValue can be set via the FieldtypeSelector field config. For the others you have to use a hook.

The previewColumns setting controls the columns shown:

$wire->addHookBefore('InputfieldSelector::render', function(HookEvent $event) {
	/* @var InputfieldSelector $inputfield */
	$inputfield = $event->object;
	// Only for the FieldtypeSelector field of the given name
	if($inputfield->hasField != 'test_selector') return;
	// Define the columns you want
	$inputfield->previewColumns = ['name', 'template', 'modified'];
