Module: PageTableExtended

Recommended Posts

Honestly I have no clue what is happening there. Just out of curiosity, could you try to autoload the module? So in FieldtypePageTableExtended.module try 'autoload' => true (perhaps same for PageTable). Doesn't make that much sense but I have no idea why FieldtypePageTable isn't ready since it is already present. The modal injects its changes via ajax, I guess somehow there could be the problem with your referenced PTE template block. But its just wild guessing.

Thanks for looking into it!
I set autoload to true, but its not fixing my issue.

After testing I found out that the issue is caused by this line in my templates for the blocks that being referenced:

if(empty($options['pageTableExtended']) && empty($options['pageStack'])) throw new Wire404Exception();

So I removed it and its working fine. but now my PTE blocks that are stored under admin–>siteparts are viewable on the frontend for everyone.
I don't want these pages to show up in search results, are there any other things I ca do to prevent that?

Could you try something like this?

// only allow access to the page if logged in with editing permissions
// otherwise throw a 404 if viewed directly
if(!$page->editable() && (!count($options['pageStack']))){
  throw new Wire404Exception();
}

I've found this module really useful, and thought I'd share an interesting use case I've come up with for it.

I had a client who wanted both the functionality of pageTable, and PageTableExtended, ie they wanted a tabular summary like PageTable provides, but with the option to expand or collapse to display rendered detail from a template like PageTableExtended allows.

It turns out, I was able to provide the desired functionality using PageTableExtended, and built in UI-kit classes in the template file I provided to PageTableExtended.

 

<!--
This is the summary section, like displayed by PageTable
-->
<table class="AdminDataTable AdminDataList uk-table uk-table-divider uk-table-justify uk-table-small">
    <thead>
        <tr>
            <th>BOM</th>
            <th>Cases to produce</th>
            <th>+/- or exact</th>
            <th>Notes</th>
        </tr>
    </thead>
    <tr>
        <td><?= $bom->title ?></td>
        <td><?= $page->cases ?></td>
        <td><?= $page->exact ?></td>
        <td><?= $page->notes ?></td>
    </tr>
</table>
<!--
Toggle to display detail section
-->
<a herf="#" class="toggleRenderedLayout">
    <i class="toggle-icon fa fa-angle-right"></i>
</a>
<span class="renderedLayoutTitle">BOM Details</span>
<!--
Detail section, hidden by default, using built in ui-kit css.
-->
<div class="renderedLayout hiddenOnStart">
    <div uk-grid uk-margin-small-top>
        <div class="uk-width-1-3 uk-margin-small-top"><strong>Wine Variety </strong><?= $bom->wineVariety->title ?></div>
        <div class="uk-width-1-3 uk-margin-small-top"><strong>Brand </strong><?= $bom->brand->title ?></div>
        <div class="uk-width-1-3 uk-margin-small-top"><strong>Market </strong><?= $bom->market->title ?></div>
        <div class="uk-width-1-1 uk-margin-small-top"><strong>Orientation </strong><?= $bom->orienation->title ?></div>
		...
    </div>
</div>

Screenshot, showing the tabular summary, with the detail section expanded.

Hey! Its me again 🙂
Iam currently experimenting with this module, to make the pagetable block items draggable and resizable (with some JS) and output them with CSS Grid.
My setup works already, but to save the item positions I need fields to store the data in (like Y=10 X=6 Width=4 Height=8). 

So my question would be:
How can I add fields to the rendered Items that don't get rendered and that i can access with javascript?

Changing the module files would be ok.
My goal is to make a new inputfield with this, so I made a new version/copy of the Page Table Extended Module.
@MadeMyDay I hope it is ok for me to build that on top of this module.
Thanks in advance!

Hi. This module looks really promising for a current job, didn't know about it til now.

Does anyone have it working with TemplateEngineFactory / TemplateEngineTwig v2?

Eg if a template to be rendered in the admin does either of the below:

if($options['pageTableExtended']){
	$factory = $modules->get('TemplateEngineFactory');
	$controller = $factory->controller('controllers/content-gallery.php', 'content-gallery.html.twig');
	$controller->execute();
}
if($options['pageTableExtended']) {
	$factory = $modules->get('TemplateEngineFactory');
	$factory->render("content-gallery");
}

Only way I can get output in the admin is to change the render method in this this line from:

$parsedTemplate->render()

to:

$parsedTemplate->page->render()

Does this make sense, or should i try to hook TemplateFile::render with TemplateEngineFactory for this use case?

Can someone help me with this?
How can I add input fields to the rendered Items that don't get rendered and that i can access with javascript?
I need to also save these fields into the database when the page is saved.

Would be awesome if someone more experienced could point me in the right direction.

Ok, figured it out partly, don't need to change the $parsedTemplate->page->render() call in PageTableExtended since that has lots of sideffects.

Just need to capture and return the twig output like so:

if($options['pageTableExtended']) {
	$factory = $modules->get('TemplateEngineFactory');
	$out = $factory->render("content-gallery", ["p" => $page]);
	echo $out;
}

Now I am having trouble using twig filters / php functions in this context, but I believe that is more a TemplateEngineFactory / TemplateEngineTwig issue.

Hi @jploch, not sure exactly what you are doing, but can't you have hidden fields either on the main template or sub-templates inside the PageTable that you save data to on a hook?

Hi! Thanks for answering! For my drag/resize page builder module I need simple text fields to store position data for every PageTable item/page (like Y=10 X=6 Width=4 Height=8).
I have to change these values dynamically with javascript. Adding these directly to the 
sub-templates renders them, so they are not accessible with javascriptWhat do you mean by hidden fields? I could add a field to my main template, where the PageTable lives and store the item positions as one big JSON array. But I would prefer to have the fields added to the sub-templates for the PageTable items/pages, so its easier to output the positions. Iam still very new to module development (this is my first attempt) and not very good with php. So I feel much more comfortable with Javascript/jQuery but Iam learning. 

I tried to modify the PageTableExtended Module code to add my fields like this (before I added the fields to my sub-templates)

<?php
foreach($pagesToRender as $p){
              $itemID++;
				$layoutTitle = $p->template->$label ? $p->template->$label : $p->template->name;
				$ext = "." . $this->config->templateExtension;
				$template_name = $p->template->altFilename ? basename($p->template->altFilename, $ext) : $p->template->name;
				$templateFilename = $this->config->paths->templates . $this->pathToTemplates  . $template_name . $ext;

				$parsedTemplate = new TemplateFile($templateFilename);
				$parsedTemplate->set("page", $p);
				$parsedTemplate->set("isAdmin", 1);
				$parsedTemplate->options = array('pageTableExtended' => true);
				$p->of(true);

				$iconClass = "fa-angle-down";
				$activeClass = "pte-open";
				$statusClass = "";
              
              //get input fields for grid item positions (they are part of the sub-template)
                $data_gs_height = $p->getInputField('data_gs_height');
                $data_gs_width = $p->getInputField('data_gs_width');
                $data_gs_x = $p->getInputField('data_gs_x');
                $data_gs_y = $p->getInputField('data_gs_y');
               
            //how to set input fields for grid based on html data attribut? I would normally do this with JS..

				if($p->is(Page::statusUnpublished)) $statusClass .= " pte-unpublished";
				if($p->is(Page::statusHidden)) $statusClass .= " pte-hidden";
				if($p->is(Page::statusLocked)) $statusClass .= " pte-locked";

				if($this->collapseUnpublished && $p->is(Page::statusUnpublished)){
					$iconClass = "fa-angle-right";
					$activeClass = "hiddenOnStart";
				}

				$layout .= '
	        				<div data-id="item-'.$itemID.'" class="'.$statusClass.' grid-stack-item" data-gs-height="' .$p->data_gs_height. '" data-gs-width="' .$p->data_gs_width. '" data-gs-x="' .$p->data_gs_x. '" data-gs-y="' .$p->data_gs_y. '">

Hi, @jploch . Can you explain the workflow, or maybe do a diagram.

What I think you want is:

- Admin interface uses gridstack.js
- In this context (ie your module building on PageTableExtended), each item in the grid contains the child page preview, and the page that is being previewed is where the data for gridstack.js is stored / set

If you want to save the data after dragging / resizing an element, I'd probably leverage events from the api here https://github.com/gridstack/gridstack.js/tree/develop/doc and set the data via ajax. To do that you just need an endpoint to send the data to, eg /pw/setgriddata/. Below code is not tested, just an example as I haven't used gridstack..

In the module js file:

$('.grid-stack').on('gsresizestop', function(event, elem) {
	var $elem = $(elem);
	var data = {
		width: $elem.data('gs-width');
		height: $elem.data('gs-height');
		x: $elem.data('gs-x');
		y: $elem.data('gs-y');
		id: $elem.data('id');
	}
	$.ajax({
		url: "/pw/setgriddata/",
		data: data,
	}).done(function( msg ) {
		console.log( msg);
	});
});

At /pw/setgriddata/:

if ($config->ajax && $input->post) {
	if ($p = $pages->get("id={$input->post->id}") {
		$p->data_gs_width = $input->post->width;
		// etc
		$p->save();
		return "Updated page: " . $p->title;
	} else {
		return "Could not find page: " . $input->post->id;
	}
}

You probably don't want to do this on all resizes however. If you want to do it on page save, again I would probably use gridstack events to populate the input fields you are rendering. Again, very quick... 

$('.grid-stack').on('gsresizestop', function(event, elem) {
	var $elem = $(elem);
	$elem->find(".grid-stack-input#data-gs-width")->val($elem.data("gs-width"));
	// etc
});

This is exactly what I want to do 🙂
I will try to do it with ajax, thanks for your suggestions!!
Right now Iam busy with other projects, but I will try this as soon as I can get back to it.

I will keep you posted.

Cool. Just an FYI in case you aren't aware... modules can create and remove admin pages on install / uninstall, which is where that ajax url would live.

Looking at other modules, I think I have to create a process module that would create a page under admin at module install (e.g. admin->setgriddata). The process module would have the code to save the ajax request in the pageTable Item/page. Or is there better way to do this? Sorry for all the noob questions! Iam new to module development 🙂

Hey @jploch sorry I missed this. How’d you go? I am not 100% sure on the above, creating a hidden admin page with a Process module is the simplest way to do it, but i think you can use Ajax with inputfields, like talked about here:

Hey folks!
Iam exited to finally show you a preview of my pagebuilder fieldtype I'm working on for quite some time now.
It's based on PageTable and takes a lot of inspiration from PageTableExtended.

@MadeMyDay Thanks for your work on PageTableExtended, it helped me a lot in figuring this out!

Let me know what you think

      This module is sort of an upgrade to my earlier ImageToMarkdown module, and might be useful to anyone working with Markdown in ProcessWire.
      Copy Markdown
      Adds icons to images and files that allow you to copy a Markdown string to the clipboard. When you click the icon a message at the top left of the screen notifies you that the copying has occurred.
      Screencast

      Note: in the screencast an EasyMDE inputfield is used to preview the Markdown. It's not required to use EasyMDE - an ordinary textarea field could be used.
      Usage: Images
      When you hover on an item in an Images field an asterisk icon appears on the thumbnail. Click the icon to copy an image Markdown string to clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the alt text.
      You can also open the "Variations" modal for an image and click the asterisk icon to copy an image Markdown string for an individual variation.
      Usage: Files
      When you hover on an item in a Files field an asterisk icon appears next to the filename. Click the icon to copy a link Markdown string to the clipboard. If the "Description" field is populated it is used as the link text, otherwise the filename is used.

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.
      ---
      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Registrazione #33.mp4  

      Registrazione #34.mp4 ---
      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.

      I've realized that I've been jumping back and forth between the PW API docs and the source code for site modules far too much. The idea to hold all necessary documentation locally in one place has occurred to me before, but getting PHPDocumentor et al set up and running reliably (and producing readable output) as always been too much of a hassle. Today I was asked how I find the right hooks and their arguments, and that inspired me to finally get my backside down on the chair and whip something up, namely the
      Module Api Doc Viewer
      ProcessModuleApiDoc
      It lets you browse the inline documentation and public (optionally also protected) class/method/property information for all modules, core classes and template files in the ProcessWire instance. The documentation is generated on the fly, so you don't have to remember to update your docs whenever you update a module.
      The module is quite fresh, so expect some bugs there. Behind the scenes it uses PHP-Parser together with a custom class that extracts the information I needed, and the core TextformatterMarkdownExtra module for rendering the description part in the phpdoc style comments.
      This is not a replacement / competitor to the API Viewer included in the commercial ProDevTools package. There is quite some information included in the inline documentation that my module can't (and won't) parse, but which makes up parts of the official ProcessWire API docs.
      This, instead, is a kind of Swiss army knife to view PHPDoc style information and get a quick class or function reference.
      If you feel daring and want to give it a spin, or if you just want to read a bit more, visit the module's GitHub repository.
      This is the overview page under "Setup" -> "Module API Docs":

      And this is what the documentation for an individual class looks like:

      The core module documentation can of course be found online, but it didn't make sense not to include them.
      Let me know what you think!

      Admin Restrict Branch Select is an add-on / companion module for Admin Restrict Branch. With this module enabled, you can manually select more than one branch parent per user via the branch_parent field, and users with more than one option selected will be able to switch between those while editing site content. Switching between branches is done via a select field injected at the top of the page tree.
      Note that users are still limited to one branch at a time: this module will not make it possible to view multiple branches at the same time.
      When the module is installed, it will automatically update the branch_parent field if deemed necessary, i.e. if it isn't yet configured to allow selecting multiple pages. You can make changes to the field later, if you want to restrict selectable options by template, use asmSelect instead of PageListSelectMultiple, etc. 
      This is an early beta release, so be sure to test carefully before enabling this module in production!
