Trying to create an input field that process data as text but gets processed as int

Recommended Posts

I'm building a fieldtype/inputfield to visually select a grid like Bootstrap since it's the first time coding such thing, I'm basing my code in FieldtypeColorPicker since the base structure is the same, a graphical UI helper to finally output a string as value.

The problem is I try to save the value as something like "1,2,3" referencing the index of each column selected but it gets converted as an int value so "1,2,3" becomes "1" if input random text it gets converted as "0".

Here is the code:

Here's an screenshot of how it looks

I tested it, and it look like its working, see my capture :

- columns echo'd on frontend - ok

- debug dumps - ok

Yes maybe the cache. 

Try to clear the compiled files and your browser cache then refresh the module.

Actually I don't understand how this part works very well

What I did is, downloading your module from Github, installed it, dumped the var with TracyDebugger - which you should install in a hurry - and tada, it seem it worked 👍🏼

Not to keep a thread going, but will this eventually become available in the modules directory? I really like the approach you have taken!

Thanks! Yes i made it for the specific needs of a client website but the idea is to pollish it a bit and publish it in the Processwire repository, I want to add some options like custom amount of cols etc

      Hello,
      I am running ProcessWire 3.0.165 but $input->urlSegmentLast or $input->urlSegment(-1) does not work as expected.
      Or do I something wrong?
      Thank you.

      Hi Guys,

      I found here: https://processwire.com/docs/selectors/#finding2 that I can exclude results from my $pages->find($selctor); query by using parent!=123 ( parent ID ) But I was wondering if I can
      also do so based on the parent template? I've tried doing it by itterating over the matches array and dropping the matches with the parent but since the result is limited for use with the paginator
      it only drops the items from the batch displayed on this page. Say from the results within matches 0 - 20 and not the entire 0 - 220.

      Anybody have a idea of how to achieve this? 🙂

      Thanks in advace!

      I've pages using the custom-page-template and I would like to display a simple message at the top of the page form when editing those pages in the Admin.
      I thought about hooking ProcessPageEdit::buildForm() but I do not well how to use that hook in order to display the message just for the custom-page-template pages.
      Any help?
       
       
      UPDATE: Solution found
      wire()->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::buildForm', function(HookEvent $event) { $ProcessPageEdit = $event->object; $form = $event->arguments('form'); switch ($ProcessPageEdit->getPage()->template->name) { case 'custom-page-template': $form->prependMarkup("<div style='margin-bottom: 3.6em; margin-top: 1em; background: #ffd;'>MY MESSAGE</div>"); break; default: // do nothing } }); Any improvement is welcome!

      Sorry I can't find any submit button to save my configuration on a template in the admin interface. The file is fine.

      Hello
      this is my snippet
      public function init() { if($this->wire('user')->isSuperuser()) { $this->wire()->addHookAfter('ProcessPageEdit::buildFormSettings', $this, 'buildForm'); $this->wire()->addHookBefore('ProcessPageEdit::processInput', $this, 'saveForm'); } } public function buildForm(HookEvent $event) { $p = $event->object->getPage(); $inputfields = $event->return; $fieldset = $this->wire('modules')->get("InputfieldFieldset"); $fieldset->attr('id', 'my_fieldset'); $fieldset->label = __("My Renders"); $fieldset->collapsed = Inputfield::collapsedYes; $field = $this->wire('modules')->get("InputfieldTextarea"); $field->attr('name', 'renders'); $field->attr('value', $p->renders); $field->label = $this->_('Renders'); $fieldset->append($field); $inputfields->append($fieldset); } public function saveForm($event) { $page = $this->pages->get($this->input->post->id); $page->set('renders', $this->input->post->renders); } It builds correctly the inputs, I edit the field renders but when I save the page the value of this inputfield remain blank.
      What's wrong?
