Pre-populate InputfieldSelector

Recommended Posts

I am using InputfieldSelector in a custom module. I would like to pre-populate it based on a PW selector (e.g. "template=Booking, bookableSlotPage=8527, bookableSlotPage.tickets>0"). Using initValue will pre-select the template, but I would also like to have the initial display show the field filters as well. Is there a way of doing this in PW or do I need to devise some method of doing it with js?

By way of context, I am using this for dynamic email lists for my club membership system. The "dynamic" nature of the list is stored as a selector in a field which can then be used by the email function. To date, this has been done by just entering the selector as raw text. I now want to make this easier for 'normal' users by using the InputfieldSelector (in a runtime_markup field) to provide a user-friendly way of creating the selector. But then I need the page to show the initial InputfieldSelector to represent the selector stored in the field, for backwards-compatibility, if nothing else.

Use the defaultSelector property instead of initSelector if you want the user to be able to see (and therefore change) the selector in the filters section.

Thanks, but I don't seem to be able to set that directly.

Oh right, I was thinking about InputfieldSelector in the context of Lister.

You just set the value of the inputfield:

$f = $this->wire('modules')->InputfieldSelector;
$f->name = 'test_selector';
$f->label = 'Test InputfieldSelector';
$f->value = "template=news_item, colours.title=Blue";

Many thanks @Robin S. I had previously tried that, but it didn't work - hence my comment about not being able to set it directly. I now realise that the  cause of that was that I had previously set initValue, to disable changing the template. After that, setting value with the full selector does not work - it is necessary to first remove the "template=..." from the selector. Thanks for giving me the confidence that I was setting it correctly so that I persisted in hunting down the "feature".

So - adding a regex to split the selector into template (for initValue) and non-template (for value) components works a treat.

      I've been trying to figure this out for two days now, but I cant seem to solve the issue without core modification, which is not the good way to go for sure. 
      I have nested hidden pages under a page called groups, and I customised the page lister module a bit extending the ProcessUser class (called processOffers) I have a custom JSTree module to select from these groups, so multiple selection is possible. My problem is,when click on the filters, and select groups in the lister module, I can see only the first level (which is a parent directory), but not the nested ones what I need. 
      I tried to catch the ajax call in my processOffers module, but seems like the control never reach my module, instead it goes to the InputfieldSelector::renderOpval straight, so I have no way to override it or write a hook or anything. 
      One thing I noticed is if I copy the ajax query and paste it into my browser url, it invokes my processOffers class, but it doesn't do it if I do it via ajax!
      ( ...backend/offers/?InputfieldSelector=opval&field=groups&type=&name=filters)
       > Update: Okay, so this one is because of the X-Requested-With:XMLHttpRequest header. 
      How could I list the nested pages as a flat list or
      how could I interact with this ajax call to override the result?

      I've created a custom process module, which the user can manage form-entries. In my executeEntries function, I've created a custom InputfieldSelector(should serve as real-time-search) and a custom MarkupAdminDataTable(serves as Resulttable) which holds the entries. How is it possible to combine the InputfieldSelector with the MarkupAdminDataTable?
      How can I get the selector from the InputfieldSelector? How can I convince the MarkupAdminDataTable, that he uses the new selector from the InputfieldSelector every time when I change the filters in the InputfieldSelector? public function executeEntries:
      public function executeEntries(){ $this->fuel->breadcrumbs->add(new Breadcrumb('./', 'Event-Manager')); $this->fuel->breadcrumbs->add(new Breadcrumb('./', 'Dashboard')); $this->fuel->set('processHeadline', 'Formulareinträge Event-Formular'); $form = $this->modules->get("InputfieldForm"); $form->method = "post"; $form->attr('id',$this->className()); $fieldset = $this->modules->get("InputfieldFieldset"); $fieldset->label = "Suche"; $fieldset->collapsed = Inputfield::collapsedNo; $field = $this->modules->get("InputfieldSelector"); $field->label = "Filter"; $field->attr("name+id", "filters"); $field->setAttribute("value", "template=50"); $allowedFields = array(); $formtemplate = $this->templates->get("name=form-submission"); foreach ($formtemplate->fields as $fieldN) { $allowedFields[] = $fieldN->name; } array_push($allowedFields, "template"); $field->limitFields = $allowedFields; $fieldset->add($field); $entries = $this->pages->find("template=form-submission"); $table = $this->modules->get("MarkupAdminDataTable"); $table->headerRow( array("Name", "Erstellt", "Aktionen") ); $table->setEncodeEntities(false); $table->action(array('Als Excel exportieren' => "./export")); foreach($entries as $entry){ $data = array( $entry->title, date("d.m.Y H:i:s", $entry->created), "<a href='showentry?id=$entry->id'>Details anzeigen</a> | <a href='./editentry?id=$entry->id'>Bearbeiten</a>", ); $table->row($data); } $preview = $this->modules->get("InputfieldMarkup"); $preview->value .= "<h2>" . $this->_("Formulareinträge Event-Formular") . "</h2>"; $entriesLimit = 20; $entriesOffset = ($this->input->pageNum - 1) * $entriesLimit; $entriesTotal = count($entries); $preview->value .= sprintf($this->_("Anzahl der Einträge: %s"), $entriesTotal); $preview->value .= " | "; $preview->value .= sprintf($this->_("Anzahl pro Seite: %s"), $entriesLimit) . "<br/>"; $preview->value .= $table->render(); $pagination = new PageArray(); $pagination->setTotal($entriesTotal); $pagination->setLimit($entriesLimit); $pagination->setStart($entriesOffset); $preview->value .= $pagination->renderPager(); $form->add($fieldset); $form->add($preview); return $form->render(); } How the Interface looks like:

      Today I discovered the module FieldtypeSelector and at first sight I didn’t know how to make use of a field of this type inside a template, respectively if there are good and smart use cases for it (I’m sure there are). Do you know of any?
      (Interestingly enough I could not find a single blog or forum topic/post discussing this module in the context of template development.)
      I would be also interested in some (pseudo-)code examples to get a better idea of how I could integrate this field type in my template workflow. Thanks a lot in advance.
