Change field "Only visible if..." through API

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I have two Page Reference fields: Category and Subcategory. Category is parent of Subcategory, and can have 0 to n Subcategories. Fields are selected by dropdown selection.

I'm trying to achieve following logic:

1. Select Category (obviously works)

2. Change Subcategory options based on selected Category (this works)

3. Hide the Subcategory field if Category has no Subcategories (to prevent weird dropdown with nothing to select)

I have tried to investigate two possible alternatives to achieve step 3:

A) Make dynamic condition into Subcategory selection's "Only visible if..." field

B) Make a hook that fires when Category changes, then hides Subcategory field if Category has no children

So far I haven't been successful in either. Conditions I've tried always lead to hidden field, and I haven't been able to find set up a hook that fires on field change.

So here's the question (finally): Is there a way to alter field visibility in API, for example in ready.php or inside a hook? In API I could loop through categories, find the ones that have children and then make a selector based on their IDs.

Here's an example...

The page structure:

Some pet species have breed child pages and some do not.

The selector string for selectable pages for the breed field is "parent=page.species".

In ready.php:

$wire->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::buildForm', function(HookEvent $event) {
	/* @var InputfieldForm $form */
	$form = $event->return;
	$breed_field = $form->getChildByName('breed');
	if(!$breed_field) return;
	$species_with_breeds = $event->wire('pages')->find('parent=/selects/pets/, children.count>0');
	$breed_field->showIf = 'species=' . $species_with_breeds->implode('|', 'id');
});

      I'm having and always have a hard time building PaginatedArrays, I never know where to put the "limit=24" selector so please enlighten me.
      Here's what I'm doing…
      $categories = $page->protable('start=0, limit=999999'); // this I need in order to retrieve the pages's "categories" and I don't know how to make use of $rows instead for that purpose because of this confusing limit-API $rows = $page->protable; // put ("limit=20") here? $custom = buildSelector($input, $rows); // this function returns an array of selectors depending on the user input $items = new PaginatedArray; // or here? // or here? $items->find("limit=20") // or like this? $items("limit=20") // or like this? $items = $items("limit=20") // or like this? $items = $items->find("limit=20") foreach ($rows as $r) : if ($custom->get('selector')->matches($r)) : $items->add($r); endif; endforeach; // or at this point? and then
      if ($items) { // or maybe somewhere here?     echo '<span class="grey">'.$items->getPaginationString(array(     'label' => 'entries',     'zeroLabel' => '0 entries', // 3.0.127+ only     'usePageNum' => false,     'count' => count($items),     'start' => $items->getStart(),     'limit' => count($items),     'total' => $items->getTotal()     )); and then of course…
      $pager = $modules->get("MarkupPagerNav"); echo '<div class="uk-flex uk-flex-center">'.$pager->render($items, $options).'</div>'; I'm out of ideas and confused cause it doesn't make sense to me either way.
      ____
      The buildSelector function above returns and array…
      $selected = new Selectors("$letter, $searchterm, $category"); $custom = new Wirearray; $custom->set('selector', $selected); $built->set('sort', $sort); return $custom; and each of the new selectors are basically strings ("category=whatever")
      Also, you cannot put the "sort=title" or whatever as a selector for the Selectors function (see above). Why, I know not.
      I don't know if that is the proper way but selecting kind of works now as opposed to many other ways I tried. Selectors always require a lot of trial and error, it seems to have a very sensitive API, always depends on double quotes, single quotes and how you concatenate.
      Thanks for help!

      I want to add a dependent SELECT field on my template page that lists pages from a parent "sub-page" in the current parent node.
      On /product1/page I have the field "photo" which is a SELECT field.
      I want the SELECT to list pages from /ROOTPARENT/photos.
      The idea is that I can reuse the same photo in many places - but only need to keep it update it once under /product1/photos.
      My page structure looks like so:
      /product1/page /product1/photos/photo3 (template=photos) /product2/photos/photo9 I have tried adding these Selector Strings on the Field (Setup -> Fields -> PHOTO -> Input tab -> Selectable Pages field group -> Selector String):
      parent=/product1/page, template=photos, sort=name WORKS (but only on children of current product). parent=page.rootParent ... parent=$page.rootParent ... parent=$page.rootParent parent=$parent ... parent=$parent1 When using a SELECT Input Field Type, the editing pages gives the fatal error "Unrecognized operator: $". parent=parent ... parent=. Returns an empty list How might I find child pages from the current "/product1/photos/ page"?
      Your inputs are appreciated. Thanks.

      Hello,
      I've just upgraded to 3.0.165 (and updated my Ubuntu version as well) and on my localhost, I am facing a weird issue : all my requests having the ~= selector cause a Mysql error with this message :

      PDOException #HY000 SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 3685 Illegal argument to a regular expression. I have no idea what is going on. If I change my request from

      $visualizer = $pages->get("name~=visualizer"); // Triggers the error
      to
      $visualizer = $pages->get("name=visualizer");
      or
      $visualizer = $pages->get("name~*=visualizer");
      My code works fine again.
      Any idea ? Shall I change all my requests (but from what I understand by reading the documentation, ~= exists and fits my needs : all words in any order [though I do understand that in my example above it may be useless since I have only one word])
      Thanks !

      Hi, I forgot the admin access url. 
      Actually, not the main site, but the site installed locally through laragon. I hadn't used it in a while, so I forgot it. Is there a way to retrieve it?

      Mysite.com/urladminareaprocesswire
      I forgot this!

      Hi there,
      while developing a sideproject which is completly build with ProcessModules i suddenly had the urge to measure the performance of some modules 😉 as a result, say welcome to the FlowtiAppPerformance module. 
      It comes bundled with a small helper module called FlowtiModuleProfiler. In the first release, even though you could select other modules, it will track the execution of selected Site/ProcessModules. 
      This will give you the ability to gain insights how your Application behaves. 
      The Main Module itself will come with 2 Logging Options, Database or PW Logs. Select Database for Charts and Logs...well If you just want your profiles as a simple log file in PW. 
      You also could choose to dump the request profile into TracyDebugger as shown here:

      Dont wonder about my avg_sysload, somehow my laptop cant handle multiple VMs that good 😄
      Settings Screen

      Monitoring

      FlowtiLogs

      again, dont look at the sysload 😄
      I will update the Module in the future to give some filter options and aggregation, but for now it satisfies my needs. 
      I hope it is helpfull for some. 
      Module is submited to the directory and hosted at github
      https://github.com/Luis85/FlowtiAppPerformance
      Any suggestions, wishes etc. are much appreciated. 
       
      Cheers,
      Luis
