Fieldtype ColorPicker

Recommended Posts

ColorPicker

Custom Fieldtype/Inputfield for ProcessWire 2.+

This module gives you a new custom Fieldtype. Let's you select a color using a Colorpicker jQuery Plugin. The color selected will be stored in HEX format uppercase: "EAEAEA";

To use it in your template as a background HEX color, you'd simple output the value and prefix it with a #:

echo "background-color: #" . $page->color;


When creating a new field in the admin, you can set a default value the field should be prefilled with when creating a new page. The field supports a "reset" button to be able to set it back to the default value.
The colorpicker used: ColorPicker jQuery Plugin by Eyecon

Since 1.0.6 the colorpicker supports color swatches to add predefined colors for easy selection. Thanks @Rayden for the implementation.
 

How to install:

  • Download the contents of this repository and put the folder renamed as "ColorPicker" into your site/modules/ folder
  • Login to processwire and got to Modules page and click "Check for new modules". You should see a note that two new modules were found. Install the FieldtypeColorPicker module under "Field" section. This will also install the required InputfieldColorPicker at the same time.
  • Done
  • You can now create a new field with the "ColorPicker" Fieldtype.


Get it from modules section: http://modules.proce...e-color-picker/

(can't attach/upload files! what's going on?)

You have probably wasted your generous 500kt (heh heh) quota on old forums already: http://processwire.com/talk/index.php?app=core&module=usercp&tab=core&area=attachments

So maybe that limit could be raised, Pete and Ryan?

About your module, great stuff, I am pretty sure this will come handy! Do you save the hex-value or rgb?

Soma, great idea and it seems to work great. Nice job.

As for the code in there, I think all looks good except that you've got a lot of 'extra' that you don't need. I don't think there's any reason to extend FieldtypeText (?) so I would just start from a fresh Fieldtype instead:

class FieldtypeColorPicker extends Fieldtype {

 public static function getModuleInfo() {
return array(
  'title' => 'ColorPicker',
  'version' => 100,
  'summary' => 'Field that stores a hex color as string in a text field. Color is picked using a jQuery ColorPicker Plugin by http://www.eyecon.ro/colorpicker/',
  'installs' => 'InputfieldColorPicker'
   );
 }

 public function getBlankValue(Page $page, Field $field) {
return 'FFFFFF';
 }

 public function sanitizeValue(Page $page, Field $field, $value) {
return strtoupper(substr($value, 0, 6));
 }

 public function getInputfield(Page $page, Field $field) {
return $this->modules->get('InputfieldColorPicker');
 }

 public function getDatabaseSchema(Field $field) {
$schema = parent::getDatabaseSchema($field);
$schema['data'] = 'CHAR(6) NOT NULL'; // i.e. FFFFFF or 333333 (hex color codes)
return $schema;
 }
}

Likewise, your Inputfield had a lot of extra functions and stuff in there that you didn't need. So you could reduce it to this:

<?php
class InputfieldColorPicker extends Inputfield {

 public static function getModuleInfo() {
return array(
  'title' => 'ColorPicker',
  'version' => 100,
  'summary' => 'Provides and ColorPicker interface for defining hex color.',
  'requires' => array("FieldtypeColorPicker")
  );
 }

 public function __construct() {
parent::__construct();
$this->setAttribute('type', 'hidden');
 }

 public function init() {
parent::init();
$this->config->styles->add($this->config->urls->InputfieldColorPicker . "colorpicker/css/colorpicker.css");
$this->config->scripts->add($this->config->urls->InputfieldColorPicker . "colorpicker/js/colorpicker.js");  
 }

 public function ___render() {
$out = "\n<p><div id='ColorPicker_$this->name' style='border:2px solid #444;display:block;width:40px;height:40px;background-color:#".$this->value."'></div>";
$out .= "<input " . $this->getAttributesString() . " /></p>";
$out .= <<<_OUT

<script type='text/javascript'>
$('#ColorPicker_$this->name').ColorPicker({
 color: '#$this->value',
 onShow: function (colpkr) {
$(colpkr).fadeIn(500);
return false;
 },
 onHide: function (colpkr) {
$(colpkr).fadeOut(500);
return false;
 },
 onChange: function (hsb, hex, rgb) {
$('#ColorPicker_$this->name').css('backgroundColor', '#' + hex);
$('#Inputfield_$this->name').val(hex);
 }
});

</script>

_OUT;

return $out;
 }
}

@apeisa, I don't know if it got to do with limited space? ... switched to extended post options ... ok now that is funny, that has to be most funny notice I've seen. There's this line I didn't payed attention closely yet but it says: "Used 2.84MB of your 500K global upload quota (Max. single file size: 100MB)" :D

And yes it's stored as hex. I also thought about wether to chose rgb or hex. And I can't really tell as there's so many option possible, so I just went with hex. I don't know if a converted function or a separate fieldtype or a config option would be best. I haven't really put much more time into it for now, but now that it's working it's time to consider some more possible options.

@ryan, you're awesome, you just made my day. Seriously you helped me really a lot just by doing this cleanup. This is great, as I was also thinking about what could still be removed that's not necessary, but I struggled a lot because I'm still learning this stuff. Thanks for the better database shema! Haven't really taken care of that, oh well. Good idea. I will study it to get a little more clear on fieldtypes. Basicly I wasn't sure what really would be needed to create a new one and thought extending text field would be ok, so I copied the text fieldtype code and deleted some stuff but I guess it was a little off still :D I will implement the changes now and update the rep.

Thanks so much for your help!

Ok, I cleaned up the code and tested it. I just comited a new version to github.

  • improved database schema
  • removed a lot of not needed functions and code
  • fixed an issue where it wouldn't trigger a change on the hidden form text input, now works with "isdirty" type of js checks, i.e. for save reminder type modules

Thanks again Ryan. I may will get back with some questions... but need some sleep now :D

Thanks Adam, didn't really notice somethings wrong (wrong method name) when recently adding version to scripts. It's fixed in latest commit. You should be able to install it sucessfully.

Yeah, I noticed, thanks.

If the MM has update function, can you update the version on modules.processwire.com ? I'd love to try that :) [sorry for DP both here and on GH]

Hi,

Great module! Is it possible to give an example on how to use it in the templates? Thanks in advance!

Wim

---------

Found it :)

It's just $page->field_color

Welcome!

Thanks, glad you found it out on your own. I wanted to add that you also need echo it ;)

echo $page->field_color;

Call me stupid (please don't, I may cry) but how do you actually use this? Can you use it to style things in the CSS?

Would you need to use inline styles?

just an example:

<style>
body{

You could create a styles.php template. And add your colorpicker there.

then on top of that PHP file:

<?php header("Content-type: text/css"); ?>

You could also output it as a js var and use it in scripts.

<script>
 var mycolor = "#<?php echo $page->color?>";

I wanted to use Soma's Sliders to generate hsl colours.( 3 sliders ) But Older IE needs rgb.

You could create a styles.php template. And add your colorpicker there.

then on top of that PHP file:

<?php header("Content-type: text/css"); ?>

Martijn, can you give any more information on how to get this working. Did you rename your style.css file to style.php and update it in the head tag?

That's what I did but don't think PW likes it as the page is coming up unstyled?

OK think I've sorted it you have to store php scripts outside the templates folder.

However, it's not parsing my variables, I'm getting "undefined variable"

Just found a possible issue. I can't seem to get colorpicker fields to work from within a fieldset tab?

When I click on the colour, nothing comes up, but the same field works fine outside of a fieldset?

I'm on the latest dev version of PW - not sure if that's relevant.

Thanks onjegolders for the report. I just updated the module to also work in tabs. It had to do that the init script was executed immediately before wiretabs.

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy!
