Field 'Page Reference' and condition 'Required if...'

Recommended Posts

Question to professionals)

I use the "Page Reference" field (name = categories, types = multiple, asm-select) and checkbox field (name = notify_user).

When editing the page, I need to check if:

- (categories) values has changed (deselected one or more current pages), make (notify_user) required.

- (categories) values has changed (selected one or more new pages), make (notify_user) required.

- (categories) values don't change, then the (notify_user) is not required.

I tried to make a condition, required if:

1. "categories!=1020|1490" - does not work.

2. "categories!=1020|1490, categories.count != 2" - does not work.

3. "categories%=1020|1490 - js error.

Please advise how best to solve this problem.

Maybe it's a matter of rethinking this in light of what the real objective is.

I'm guessing that when the notify_user checkbox is checked and the page is saved, something happens - some sort of action that notifies a user. You're saying that you want to force the notify_user checkbox to be in a checked state if the categories field is changed, presumably to force the action to happen. So why not just do the action if the categories field has changed?

$pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) {
	$page = $event->arguments(0);
	// If the notify_user checkbox is checked or the categories field value has changed...
	if($page->notify_user || $page->isChanged('categories')) {
		// Do the notify user action...
	}
});

@Robin S Thanks for reply!

That's exactly what I did. But only the && operator, because I don't need to automatically send a notification. The administrator must know that he has notified the user.

If he forgot to check the notify_user checkbox, then after saving the page I will not be able to track categories changes..

The notification describes which categories have been deleted, which have been added, etc.

if ($template == 'member') {
	$old = clone($page);
	$old->uncache();
	$changed = WireArray();
	$fields = ['categories'];
	foreach($fields as $fieldname) {
		if ($page->isChanged($fieldname)) {
			$changed->set($fieldname, $old->$fieldname);
		}
	}
	if ($changed->has('categories')) {
		$categories = WireData();
		$categories->set('current', PageArray());
		$categories->set('added', PageArray());
		$categories->set('removed', PageArray());
		foreach ($old->categories as $category) {
			if (!$page->categories->has($category)) {
				$categories->removed->add($category);
			}
			else {
				if (!$categories->current->has($category)) $categories->current->add($category);
			}
		}
		foreach ($page->categories as $category) {
			if (!$old->categories->has($category)) {
				$categories->added->add($category);
			}
			else {
				if (!$categories->current->has($category)) $categories->current->add($category);
			}
		}
		bd($categories->current, 'current');
		bd($categories->added, 'added');
		bd($categories->removed, 'removed');
	}
}

This code in Hook after Pages::saveReady..

      It's a bilingual site. There are two pages: "Artists" and "Events" each with a "Page Reference" field connecting each other.
      - Artists has a field where one can choose events available.
      - Events has a field where you can either choose artists available or create new ones.
      The problems: 
      - When I create an "Artist" page and select events from the list, it doesn't update the collection of participating artists on the "Event" page.
      - When I create an artist from the "Event" page. The field 'artist page > settings > language' is not "Active" for the second language.  When the artist page is created manually,"Active" is on by default.
      I know this all have to do with hooks, but I'm don't fully understand the logics.

      Going through my long quest to get better with ajax and utilizing the api, I have hit yet another roadblock. I currently have a form with an image field (thanks to flydev for getting that sorted), "title" text input, and a select field set to multiple. In my ajax call, I added in:
      tags = $("#select-tags").val(); form_data.append('tags', tags); $.ajax({ type: 'POST', data: form_data, contentType: false, processData: false, url: '/ajax/upload-preview/', success: function(data) { console.log("Woo"); }, error: function(xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) { alert(xhr.responseText); } }); And in the ajax template: 
      $tags = $sanitizer->text($_POST['tags']); $image = $sanitizer->text($_POST['image']); $p = new Page(); $p->template = "preview"; $p->parent = $pages->get("/previews/"); $p->name = $title; $p->title = $title; $p->tags = $tags; $p->save(); If I select a "tag" from the select input and submit, it does indeed add it to the Page Reference field in the backend. However, this does not work with an array being passed to it of multiple options.

      So it does appear that my ajax call is trying to submit multiple options, but I am really just unsure how to get these two added in. I saw in other forums posts of add($page) and even add(array()). Do I need to handle this js array differently or do  I need to foreach through the $tags to add it like:
      foreach($tags as $tag) { $p->tags->add($tag); $p->save(); } I tried this approach, but apparently I am still missing something.
       
      Edit:
      I was doing some tweaking, and I know I can split the js array out like:
      for (i = 0, len = tags.length; i < len; i++) { console.log(tags[i]); } However, I am not sure then how to handle the POST in php if I were to split it out.

      This might be a completely dumb question, but I cant seem to wrap my head around it. I have a page reference field that allows users to select "Tags". In the front end I would like to use the titles as class names for a single item. ie:
      <?php $previews = $pages->find("template=preview"); ?> <?php foreach($previews as $preview): ?> <div class="tagOne TagTwo tagThree"> <!-- use another foreach to output--> <img src="<?=$preview->preview_image->url; ?>" /> </div> <?php endforeach; ?> I am little stumped as I know I need a foreach loop to produce each tag title, but how do I insert them all into one corresponding div class with spaces?
      Whelp, that was the easiest thing, but my brain just didnt "get it". Just put the foreach in the "class" inside of the overall foreach. Ugh 😓

      Thanks to @Macrura for the idea behind this module.
      Page Field Info
      Adds information about options in Page Reference fields. Supports InputfieldSelect and inputfields that extend InputfieldSelect:
      InputfieldSelect InputfieldRadios InputfieldSelectMultiple InputfieldCheckboxes InputfieldAsmSelect Requires ProcessWire >= 3.0.61 and AdminThemeUikit.
      Screenshots
      Field config

      Example of changes to inputfield

      Example of info field filled out in Page Edit

      Installation
      Install the Page Field Info module.
      Configuration
      In the Input tab of the settings for a Page Reference field...
      Tick the "Add info tooltips to options" checkbox to enable tooltips for the options in the field. Tooltips are not possible for Select or AsmSelect inputfield types so for those types you would want to tick the next option. Tick the "Append info about selected options" checkbox to append information about the selected options to the bottom of the inputfield. If the Page Reference field is a "multiple pages" field then the info for each selected option will be prefixed with the option label (so the user will know what option each line of info relates to). In the "Info field" dropdown select a text field that will contain information about the page, to be used in the tooltips and appended info. Of course this field should be in the template(s) of the selectable pages for the Page Reference field. Hook
      In most cases the "Info field" will supply the text for the tooltips and appended info, but for advanced usages you can hookPageFieldInfo::getPageInfo() to return the text. For example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('PageFieldInfo::getPageInfo', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); // The page $inputfield = $event->arguments(1); // InputfieldPage $field = $event->arguments(2); // The Page Reference field $info = $event->return; // Text from the info field, if any // Set some custom text as the $event->return... });

      Wondering if anyone can help me get past a sticking point.  
      I'm setting up a Processwire instance in a multiple site setup (using Soma's multisite) to run several related websites.  I am getting stuck on the tagging system that I am using (adapted from a standalone PW site I'm running).  I have the tags themselves set up as Pages, and the Tags field on the related pages is and ASMselect field that populates based on the pages underneath /tags/ in the tree.  This system works fine on the standalone site.
      Where I am running into issues, is with trying to use them with the multisite setup.  Specifically, choosing the proper subset of pages for tags on the ASMselect input tab.  I want to choose only the tag pages for the site in question.  
      My tree is laid out like this:
      Multisite / 
                | site1.com
                     | subsections
                | site2.com
                     | subsections
                | Tags
                     | site1.com
                          | tagA
                          | tagB
                     | site2.com
                           | tagC
      So far, the best I've been able to do is to use  'parent.has_parent=/tags/' in the Custom Find or Selector String portion of the Selectable Pages section of the input.  This gives me the options of choosing tagA, tagB, or tagC on a page under site1.com.  What I'd like to find is a selector that allows me to only see tagA, tagB as options from a page under site1.com and only tagC on a page under site2.com.
      Elsewhere in my php templates, I'm using $page->rootParent->title to set the proper scope and URLs for things, but I have not found a way to get that to work in this field input setup.  I am trying to avoid creating specific fields and templates for each site, as unified templates were part of the purpose of going with a multisite install.
       
      Thanks in advance for any ideas.
