Module: Select Multiple Transfer

Recommended Posts

You can get the drag'n'drop order of the selected pages. Is is possible to get the order of the non selected pages to ?

I had some updates to push on dev related to InputfieldPage and the <select> dependencies, so went ahead and did that, just so that we're all testing on the same version of things here. 

This is a little off-topic here, but wanted to mention before I forget: 

@Soma: I implemented something so that you can specify which classes should behave like InputfieldPageListSelect/InputfieldPageListSelectMultiple, where the "parent" setting reflects the root of a tree rather than an immediate parent. Rather than having those hard coded in the class, they can now be specified by making your class implement the interface "InputfieldPageListSelection". This interface doesn't currently require any methods, so it's a blank interface. You can have your Inputfield class defined like this to be treated as a tree selection:

class YourInputfield extends Inputfield implements InputfieldPageListSelection {
You can get the drag'n'drop order of the selected pages. Is is possible to get the order of the non selected pages to ?

Non-selected pages aren't actually part of the POST submission. They are no different from unselected items in a <select multiple> ... actually that's exactly what they are behind-the-scenes, as this jQuery UI widget is just a progressive enhancement to <select multiple> in the same way that asmSelect is. The data that they represent can't go beyond what is represented by a <select multiple>.

I am impressed by this powerful module, it makes editing a lot faster for multiple select fields!

Just wondering if there is any possibility, that all selected options will be sorted automatically by name? In general they are reverse sorted by date added...

They will be presented in whatever order is used by the parent you are pulling them from. I'm guessing in your case that the parent page used for your selectable options is configured to sort the children by date. You could change this by configuring your Page reference field to use a selector string rather than a parent. This should do what you need:

parent=/path/to/your/parent/, sort=name

This looks like a great module, thank you!

I came here searching for dependent select options with PW.

Now I'm reading that the video demo uses dependent selects. That is exactly what I need. But I can't seem to find a fieldtype "dependent selects". Is this part of some other fieldtype that I need to install first or how do I set up 2 dependent select fields in the backend?

Dependent selects is not fieldtype but a technique to use the custom selector for the pagefield inputfield. You can use 'page' or 'page.field' in there to make one select dependent on an other select on the same page when editing. Ie 'parent=page.anotherpageselect'

Thank you for clarifying

I was thinking of it as an extra field type because "parent=page.anotherpageselect" is only working for pages that live under the same parent like you explained here.

I'd need something more flexible that can be applied to page select fields whose pages have different parents. Meanwhile I posted about this in Wishlist&Roadmap.

@gebeer, yeah I said that but also said that another selector would be required and that I didn't know if that would work. But I just tested and it works fine.

What you need is this type of selector:

"select_page=page.select_country, select_page!="


"select_page" = would be page single page select field on your option pages to select its "reference", like "Zürich" has selected "Schweiz", and so on

"select_country" = would be a normal page select on current editing page to select from a parent of countries. Nothing special here. 

Then use a page select to select cities that are dependent on what country is selected:

"select_area" = would be a normal page select on current editing page to select from cities. Here you would use the custom selector option for the input like: "select_page=page.select_country, select_page!="

And so on. You can go further and create a page select that is dependent on the selected city and add a "select_event" that then uses same selector but with using "page.select_city":

"select_page=page.select_city, select_page!="



This allows dependent relations using a page select instead of a parent relation. This is only for backend.

that looks great!

I am only having trouble understanding where exactly I need to put the "select_page" field and what the selector for this one would be. Because I am not sure what  "options pages" refers to. Are these the area and event pages in your example?

EDIT: I got it working now for my scenario. Thanks again.

-destination template with title and country single page select field

-tour template with title, country field and a destinations multi page select field with custom selector "country=page.country, select_page!='', template=destination"

Having some luck with this but can't seem to use it for this scenario...

Selectable items are parented to various "group" pages. They also have a page field for their "type" (typical pages-as-categories kind of thing).

On the template of the page where I need to select these items, I can setup a group page field and make my custom selector string use that for parent, OR I can setup a type page field and make my custom selector string use that for type, BUT I can't do both (it doesn't find anything).

This works:

parent=page.item_group, page.item_group!=''

This works:
item_type=page.item_type, page.item_type!=''

This does not work:
parent=page.item_group, page.item_group!='', item_type=page.item_type, page.item_type!=''


Apologies for extending the somewhat tangential dependent selects discussion in this "Select Multiple Transfer" topic.

As for Select Multiple Transfer, I can't get it to show up in 2.5.26 dev as a choice among the other input fields. Have uninstalled/reinstalled.

      Hey folks,
      for a module (a pagebuilder based on PageTable) I need to save some settings as JSON. The values are saved for each page table item (a pw page). It's working well, but I am looking for ways to improve the structure I have. As I'm not that experienced with JSON, maybe someone more experienced can take a look and tell me if my approach is good practice. 

      My goal is to make all the items accessible by page id, without looping over them (using objects instead of arrays):
      // access from template with pw page var $jsonObject->items->{$page}->cssClass; Her is an example of my JSON structure:
      { "items": { "3252": { "id": "3252", "cssClass": "pgrid-main", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "auto", "grid-row-end": "auto", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "60px", "padding-right": "60px", "padding-top": "60px", "padding-bottom": "60px", "background-color": "rgb(255, 255, 255)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3686": { "id": "3686", "cssClass": "test_global", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "-1", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "1", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3687": { "id": "3687", "cssClass": "block_editor-3687", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3696": { "id": "3696", "cssClass": "block_editor-3696", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } } }, "breakpointActive": "base", "breakpointActiveSize": "@media (min-width: 576px)" }

      Fieldtype Page Table Grid
      This is a sneak preview of a side project I've been working on for quite some time now. A lot of work and thought has gone into this, so I will most likely release this as a commercial module at some point in the near future. 

      As a designer (and developer) I get the appeal of a WYSIWYG editor. After playing around with some WYSIWYG page builder tools, I always felt something was wrong about them. So I decided to build my own PW version based on PageTable.

      Here is a small demo (using AdminThemeCanvas, but its working with other admin themes as well) :
      There is also a complete website that I built for a friend of mine using this module and some custom blocks.
      This fieldtype shares a lot of features with PageTableExtended: it's also an extension of PageTable and renders the block templates in the backend and frontend (native PW templates and fields). You can also add your own css via module settings.
      The difference is, this fieldtype also gives you the ability to rearrange and resize elements in a visual way as well as enable inline editing for text, ckeditor and file fields. Similar (and promising) attempts have been made, but I wanted something based on native CSS grid instead of a CSS framework...so I built my own version. Most CSS frameworks are based on flexbox, which is great for layouting elements horizontally. With CSS grid, you can place elements horizontally and vertically, allowing for layouts that were not previously possible with CSS. Similar to webflow, this fieldtype uses javascript (in the backend) to let you manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them). It should still be possible to include a CSS framework if you like (just add the classes to your block markup and include the CSS via module settings).
      The CSS grid layout manipulations are saved in a single field as a JSON array and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you simply include in your main template (no inline styles). The styles are saved within the breakpoint you select and cascade down to smaller breakpoints. That means you can specify just the basic breakpoint and adjust other breakpoints if needed. The exception is the mobile breakpoint which will display everything in one column as a default (you can change the layout here too).
      The fieldtype also comes with an optional style panel to manipulate some additional CSS properties directly on the page. You can customize the panel or disable it completely from the module settings (and just use a CSS file that you include via module settings). The style panel is based on inputfields (nothing is saved to the database). This means that you just have to install the module and all fields are available to all blocks automatically (this can be customized). It also has the benefit that your installation is not flooded with fields; this module only installs one field.
      Don't want to give your customer all that power? Design features can be disabled for certain roles. The grid editor role can just edit the content and use the inline editing feature to edit content quickly. You can then also grant access individually to the style panel, resize or drag functionality.
      Blocks are just pages Blocks are defined by native PW templates and fields Manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them) Design features can be disabled for certain roles Inline editing of text, ckeditor and file fields The layout is 100% CSS grid (very small css file size) Simply drag and resize to manipulate grid items directly inside the backend Manipulate grid columns and rows directly on the page (use any number of columns you want) All style manipulations are saved as JSON and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you just include in your main template (no inline styles) Nested groups/grids (child pages of nested blocks are created under group parent) Global blocks work with page reference field (changes on one page, changes all blocks on all pages) Manual and auto placement of grid items Define custom icons for your blocks via native template settings (template -> advanced -> icon) Option to load lazysizes in the backend to enable lazy loading of assets with class lazyload Works with all default and ui-kit based admin themes If you have any questions or feedback, let me know.

      I built this module because I needed a versatile solution to replace tags and simple if-blocks in some E-Mails and PDF documents.
      If you only need to replace static tags (no if-conditions), then you can use default PW api and need no module:
      $str = "My favourite color is {color}."; $texttools = $sanitizer->getTextTools(); echo $texttools->populatePlaceholders($str, ['color' => 'red']); // output: My favourite color is red. Usage:
      See the two example Files in the folder /replacements

      Renders an overview of all available replacements (see the example in the Module's config file:
      Create new Replacements:
      Simply copy the sample file and adopt to your needs.

      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules.

I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that?
