Last and first selectors (in repeaters) ?

Recommended Posts

Is there something like that available in PW ? I need to filter something in a repeater by its last value.

Something like that: 

repeater.last.field

repeater.first.field

The repeater is basically a PageArray. So you can use the normal Page/WireArray methods.

$myRepeater->first();

$myRepeater->last();

Look at the Cheatsheet under Page/WireArray. Hope this helps.

Sorry read it to fast.

But it's a PageArray and regarding to the documentation this might work:

$myRepeater->last()->find("myRepeater.fieldname != '' ").

Hopefully someone else can help.

After a bit of testing it seems that it takes into account all the values in the repeater (which is ok for my use). But I'd still like to know if it's possible to use selectors that way.

Don't understand the question exactly, but here are some nice docs: http://processwire.com/api/fieldtypes/repeaters/

Also repeater pages have a special template called "repeater_yourField". So theoretically you could also get repeater pages the following way:

// Get last item sorted by created DESC
$item = $pages->find("template=repeater_yourField,sort=-created,limit=1"); 

// Get first item sorted by created with an additional condition 
$item = $pages->find("template=repeater_yourField,sort=created,field|field2%=blub,limit=1");

would love that too, could use it on a table field to know while searching if the first/last entry matches

It requires a couple of steps, but so long as your pages selector doesn't return a huge number of results this should be fairly low impact:

$value = 'Foo';
$all_matches = $pages->find("my_table.my_field=$value");
$first_row_matches = $pages->newPageArray();
foreach($all_matches as $match) {
    if($match->my_table->first()->my_field == $value) $first_row_matches->add($match);
}

interesting approach thanks for sharing :-)

think the first subselector could be a nice addition to simplify things ;-)

      Hi!
      I have two Page Reference fields: Category and Subcategory. Category is parent of Subcategory, and can have 0 to n Subcategories. Fields are selected by dropdown selection.
      I'm trying to achieve following logic:
      1. Select Category (obviously works)
      2. Change Subcategory options based on selected Category (this works)
      3. Hide the Subcategory field if Category has no Subcategories (to prevent weird dropdown with nothing to select)
      I have tried to investigate two possible alternatives to achieve step 3:
      A) Make dynamic condition into Subcategory selection's "Only visible if..." field
      B) Make a hook that fires when Category changes, then hides Subcategory field if Category has no children
      So far I haven't been successful in either. Conditions I've tried always lead to hidden field, and I haven't been able to find set up a hook that fires on field change.
      So here's the question (finally): Is there a way to alter field visibility in API, for example in ready.php or inside a hook? In API I could loop through categories, find the ones that have children and then make a selector based on their IDs.

      I'm working on a news feed that will show the most recent news in a full teaser grid, and all older news as a simpler archive-type list view. My selectors so far:
      $news_full = $page->children("template=news, limit={$page->feed_count_full}"); $news_archive = $page->children("template=news, start={$page->feed_count_full}, limit=9999"); The $page->feed_count_full field controls how many items to show in the teaser grid (I've confirmed it contains the correct value, and the $news_full selector works as intended).
      This works, but I don't like the limit in the second selector. Unfortunately, if I leave it out (i.e. I only specify a start, not a limit), the start is ignored and I get all news instead. Not a big problem as we will never have more than 9999 news, but it still bothers me, as semantically speaking I don't want to set a limit in this case.
      Is this the intended behaviour of start/limit selectors? Is there a cleaner way to specify an offset (start selector) without a limit?

      I played with the Selectors object and would like to use it for a special use case...
      That is a custom Selectors object with dummy data converted to an php array to see the structure (Selectors object is a WireArray with "fields" added)
      Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [field] => seg1 [value] => val1 [not] => [group] => [quote] => [forceMatch] => ) [1] => Array ( [field] => seg2 [value] => val2 [not] => [group] => [quote] => [forceMatch] => ) ) )  
      But instead of "seg1" the field name is "field" with value "seg1" (= my field name).
       
      So I can't search the Selectors WireArray (= custom WireArray with added Selectors objects) with PW "find('seg1=val1')", Is there a way to search with "find()" or build a simple wrapper to make the elements searchable / filterable with find()?

      <?php $Cats=$pages->find("parent=1086, id!=$page, sort=sort"); foreach($Cats as $Cat) { echo " I have a selector that pulls in 4 child pages of a parent and the order is set to reflect the order of the tree.
      My client has asked that instead of
      Cat 1 | Cat 2 | Cat 3 | Cat 4
      we instead display
      Cat 4 | Cat 1 | Cat 2 | Cat 3 
      However, I can't change the sort order in the tree.
      Can anyone guide me on the correct approach here?
      Thanks

      Hi there! And thanks for Processwire!
      It appears that i've found something interesting about PW selectors. They should only be strings! Here's an example of SQL-like syntax for selector:
      $my_complex_selector = " name='some name', parameter=123, other_parameter=[subparam>=subvalue] "; Trying to use this selector lead to a very buggy PW behaviour. It appears that newlines are treated in a very special manner by PW selector engine, preventing the newlined selectors from working as expected.
      I cannot imagine a situation when an unescaped newline could be a part of selector or selector value, so stripping newline symbols from selector could be a good idea for further PW development. And, currently, another good idea is to write complex selectors as PHP arrays:
      $my_complex_selector = [ "name=$name", "param1=$param1", ]; and to implode them into a single line before using find() and other functions which use selectors.
      Sorry if i wrote something trivial, but having this post already present at support forum could save me a couple of hours. Hope mine will save that tame for someone else 😉
