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

Oh ok, I guess then it's an issue of simply cached install of the module? Actually I don't understand how this part works very well

Yes maybe the cache. 

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

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

      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?

      Hi Guys,

      I found that my site is producing this notice on the front end, even when $config->debug = false and also when admin is
      not even logged in. How do I keep the site from displaying this message to front end users? The notice is about a few vars
      being tested, which in this case aren't defined, how would I stop that from happing all together when testing vars? if I for instance
      wrap the $discountCode = blabla in a if($order) { ...  } statement than I'm again testing for $order which isn't a object in this case
      which throws another notice..

      This is the notice:


      Here is my current code:
      // PAD DISCOUNT CODE HOOK // First we see if we have active discount code if ($this->session->orderId) { $order = $this->pages->get($this->session->orderId); } if($product->geen_korting == 1) { $nodisc = $product->geen_korting; } else { $nodisc = $product->parent->geen_korting; } $discountCode = $this->sanitizer->selectorValue($order->pad_discount_code); $dc = $this->pages->get("template=paddiscount, title=$discountCode"); if ($dc->id) { if ($nodisc) { $discount = 0; } elseif ($dc->pad_percentage) { $discount = $newprice * ($dc->pad_percentage / 100); } } $event->return = $newprice - $discount;
      Thanks in advance 🙂

      [EDIT]: After sitting down and planning out my site according to the ragged hierarchy information, I settled on the following schematics.
      /$world/$template/$content_of_template_type/... for my pretty URLs /roster/$character for my characters a generic Repeater field with depth on most content types for custom positions for child pages to connect to instead of it directly a few Repeater fields on each content that have (PageReference[1], other fields) to establish associations A few FieldsetGroups to help me manage the fields that I needed to copy across a bunch of content types. Kept the original post below for context and tagged the OP for searchability.

      Hi everyone! I'm working on a personalized worldbuilding wiki to host my art and story stuff.
      Right now my site architecture looks like...
      /$world/cosmology/$cosmology /$world/locations/$location /$world/factions/$faction /$world/history/$history /$world/species/$species /roster/$character So far the layout works, but there's one problem. I need to make sub-sections for an organization. Organizations can appear under cosmology, locations, and factions. Sounds straightforward until... I run into the problem of figuring out how to represent subfactions.
      Key factors in this are...
      Characters should be able to be part of multiple organizations Characters should have an explicit role assigned to their membership. Character pages should be able to query the organization pages to display their ranks across organizations. Editing an organization's hierarchical layout should be visible while editing the root organization page. From what I've read of the ProcessWire documentation, the best use case for each way of representing the organization's subsections are...
      Child Pages:: Works best for menu presentation and dedicated editing. PageTables:: Works if you want control over where to place the PageTable fields, but requires opening a modal for the pages you want to edit. It's also kind of like normal pages. Repeaters:: Works great for inline editing and easy control over hierarchy, but the page urls become obscure. Sections in the body field:: Works for copypasting from my note files. But it doesn't expose relationships for easy querying. It looks like my best case for this is child pages since it allows displaying suborganization in the URL easily. But also I lose out on quickly reordering and editing the child pages. Any advice for people running into similar use cases?

      Goodmorning everyone,
      sorry for the inconvenience but I have a problem that I can't find in any other post.
      Strange things happen on a site:
      - despite everything being configured correctly (as already done in dozens of other sites) only superusers can create new pages
      - if I insert in a selector "include = all" the result is always 0
      - I should restore a series of pages incorrectly inserted in the trash, but I cannot select them with the selector "status = Trash"
      Some idea?
      Thanks so much for your valuable support.
