Question about checkbox field.

Recommended Posts

Hey, so I have some code that goes out and finds all fields on a page that are labeled with "skill", all of these fields are checkboxes. I then want to display some text if the checkbox is checked, but I can't seem to figure out how to check if the checkbox is checked.

$skills = $curpage->fields->find("label=Skill");
foreach($skills as $skill)
{
if($skill == "1")
{
 echo"{$skill->name} ";
}
}

what am I doing wrong? I normally write in C and not php (and not web stuff) so I don't really know the language super great.

I think this should do it. A check box is either 1 (true), or 0 if not checked (false). Also if you get fields like this you have to get the field of the page afterwards. Let me know if that works.

$skills = $curpage->fields->find("label=Skill");
foreach($skills as $skill){
 if($curpage->get($skill)){
   echo"{$skill->name} ";
 }
}

Ah yes. Or simply $skill->name.

Greetings,

I use this logic extensively in my sites to display only those articles that have a certain checkbox checked. I think of this as a way to create "instant categories"!

Here is an example of the code I've been using. In this case, the organization has several "events" (each with its own checkbox). In the example below, the template displays a series of "intro images" only for "annual festivals" (in other words, the user checked "annual_festival."):

<?php
$eventlist = $pages->find("template=event, annual_festival=1, sort=-date, limit=50");
foreach($eventlist as $event)
{
?>
 <div id="listings_box">
   <img src="<?php echo $event->intro_image->size(300, 225)->url ?>" />
 </div>
<?php
}
?>

It works great! In your case, once you find the pages that are checked according to your requirements, you can then call the relevant text field.

Thanks,

Matthew

      I have a page with a table. Each table row has a page-reference field and a checkbox.
      The Page sends emails to all users (page-refrence->email-field) and change the value of the checkbox in a row to 1.
      It works with this:
      <?php // event ID fron url query $eventID = $input->get('eventID','int'); // get event-page $event = $pages->get($eventID); // config $fromEmail = $event->event_mail_from; $fromName = $event->event_mail_from_name; $emailSubject = $event->event_subject; // email html body ob_start(); include('./_inc/emailbody.inc'); $emailBody = ob_get_clean(); // make event-page editable $event->of(false); // loop through table and send out emails foreach($event->event_clients_list as $event_table_row) { // get client page $clientPage = $event_table_row->client_name; // get client email $clientEmail = $clientPage->email; // if client isn't invited yet (checkbox not checked) if($event_table_row->client_invited == '') { // send email $m = new WireMail(); $m->to($clientEmail); $m->from($fromEmail, $fromName); $m->subject($emailSubject); $m->bodyHTML($emailBody); $m->send(); // mark client as invited $event_table_row->client_invited = 1; $event->save('event_clients_list'); } } ?> But i have to use a variable in my emailbody.inc which i'm able to get in the table-loop.
      So i do the including of the body inside my loop. But this doesn't work anymore. Page sends out the emails but is unable to change the value of the checkbox.
      I get no errors!
      I'm using ProTable
      <?php // event ID fron url query $eventID = $input->get('eventID','int'); // get event-page $event = $pages->get($eventID); // config $fromEmail = $event->event_mail_from; $fromName = $event->event_mail_from_name; $emailSubject = $event->event_subject; // loop through table and send out emails foreach($event->event_clients_list as $event_table_row) { // get client page $clientPage = $event_table_row->client_name; // get client email $clientEmail = $clientPage->email; // email html body ob_start(); include('./_inc/emailbody.inc'); $emailBody = ob_get_clean(); // make event-page editable $event->of(false); // if client isn't invited yet (checkbox not checked) if($event_table_row->client_invited == '') { // send email $m = new WireMail(); $m->to($clientEmail); $m->from($fromEmail, $fromName); $m->subject($emailSubject); $m->bodyHTML($emailBody); $m->send(); // mark client as invited $event_table_row->client_invited = 1; $event->save('event_clients_list'); } } ?>

      Is it possible to use count() to return a number of repeater items don't have a checkbox checked? In my current set up, I have a repeater on the page "dev_repeater" with a checkbox called "dev_repeater_exclude". I need to get a count of the current items that do not have it checked so I can pass it to my css grid to alter the column width.

      Not sure where I originally saw it while lurking around the forums, but someone, somewhere at some time was asking about styling Uikit checkboxes as toggle-style switches, much like the ones at the bottom of this post asking me if I want to be notified of replies.
      So here is my humble offering, rough and ready,  which can be thrown in at the bottom of your Uikit css as a starting point.
      Everything is based on ems and rems, so you can increase size as you desire by altering the single instance of font-size.
      It only targets single instances of labels within a specific field to a) try to limit unintended consequences and b) because in those cases it often seems more user-friendly to have an on/off binary switch rather than a checkbox. It's still totally a checkbox, just styled differently.

      Checkbox Reversed
      Modifies InputfieldCheckbox so that it shows the reverse of its true value. The checkbox will be unchecked when the field value is 1 and checked when the field value is not 1.
      Background
      The core FieldtypeCheckbox does not have a setting that allows a checkbox to be checked by default. One reason for this is that only a checked field saves a value to the database. An unchecked field does not save "0" to the database, but rather does not save any value for the field at all. Therefore there is no way to distinguish between a new field that has not yet been saved (and therefore could potentially get a default checked state) and a field that has deliberately been saved as unchecked.
      Because of this you sometimes have to use a checkbox in the opposite way than you would like. Suppose your client has requested a checkbox labelled "Bootylicious" that will be checked by default. This isn't possible with FieldtypeCheckbox so instead you have to convince them that a checkbox labelled "Not bootylicious" that is unchecked by default is just as good. This alternative will achieve the same thing, but it's not ideal.
      A solution
      This module doesn't change the limitations of the core checkbox field, but it provides a workaround that allows you to show the checkbox with the desired default state and label. So in the example above you would still name the field "not_bootylicious" (otherwise it could get confusing in your template files) but you can label the field "Bootylicious" and the checkbox will appear checked when its true value is actually unchecked, and vice versa. This allows new pages to show the checkbox checked by default. Clear as mud?
      Usage
      Install the Checkbox Reversed module.
      For any Checkbox field where you want the inputfield to show the reverse of its true value, activate the "Reverse the checked state of this inputfield?" option in the field settings.

      Hi all! I want to sort child-pages by two fields but I don't know if it is possible within one selector or if I have to make two separate queries
      <?php foreach ($page->children('sort=checkbox, sort=-number') as $child): ?> I want to keep 'checked' pages on top and sort them and all following by the 'number' field. The 'checkbox' field is a
