Create a front end edit form for a page with ProFields Table field


Recommended Posts

I have a page that contains a single ProFields table field and I want to display the contents of the table on the front end and then for logged in users, they can edit certain columns in the table.

What I have at the moment is

$out = '<form
  <table class="table">

    $count = 1;

    foreach($page->fieldName as $row) :

      $out .= '
        <td><input type="checkbox" name="fieldName_'.$count.'_columnName"></td>

      if($input->post->submit) :

        $page->set('fieldName_'.$count.'_columnName', $sanitizer->text($input->post->{fieldName_'.$count.'_columnName}));




   $out .= '
  <button class="button" type="submit">Save</button>

The two problems I have are:

  1. I get an error trying from $sanitizer->text($input->post->{fieldName_'.$count.'_columnName}), not sure how to make that dynamic. 
  2. If I change the above to just a static value, e.g. $page->set('fieldName_1_columnName', 'Testing') and save the form, it's not saving the values to the database.

Where am I going wrong?
