Hi Soma!

Great! I uploaded this latest version and the validation errors are gone. Thank you! Good module!

@Soma: I'm having issues storing 000000 (i.e. black) as default value. Any idea if this is something specific to my case or actual issue?

000000 is converted to 0 (and in page edit nothing shows up), "000000" to "00000 and black to #black. In page edit this works just fine, but default value for some reason won't work. Actually at some point (not sure if this is consistent behavior, as I haven't yet had time to debug properly) 000000 was stored in database, but when fetched in field settings it was suddenly converted to 0.

Could be even core bug, but since typical (page edit) text inputs have no problems with values like this, I'm not entirely sure where to start.. :)

I see this here too, and I'm seeing this behavior for all text fields, so nothing to do with this module.

I'm not seeing this behavior with Text/Textarea fields. Just tried in a few spots. Any other factors you can think of?

No. to be more clear it happens with all textfields in settings of fields or modules. Except title, names or labels.

I enter for example 000 and get 0 after saving.

Ok happens also for labels but only on alternative language. I have multilanguage installed, but otherwise I have no idea, nothing else I can think of. And it also happens to others as reported multiple times.

Sorry, I thought we were talking page fields here. If limited to the fields in template/field (or module) settings, then I know what the issue is. It's the encode/decode process, which attempts to detect and enforce numeric types and empty values. Best way to bypass that is to put something non-numeric in there. For instance, for a color value something like #000 rather than 000 would likely resolve it. Though I may also be able to have it skip over digit strings that start with a zero and have no decimal.

I see. Hmm changing it to # would work in this case but break compatibility. So not positive to change it for something that is broken in PW. A string is a string not a number. :)

@Soma, break compatibility would make your color picker better.

Now your field always need some extra logic. You can't just output $page->color, because of the max length of 6 characters.

example: "<div style='color: #{$page->color};'>"; can render to <div style='color: #transp;'>

I do love this field, but the extra logic sucks.

Please break the backward compatibility.

I must say that I agree with both views here; what Martijn described is definitely a nuisance and I really wouldn't mind if Soma decided to change it, but it also feels that it's just wrong (and inconsistent) to have fields behave in different way when used in module settings context  :)

I see and kinda agree. But maybe rather add formatting to the field than change current 6 chars. Remember you could do that yourself with formatValue hook or property instead of local tpl logic.

I just committed suic.. ehrm an update to ColorPicker. ;)

  • As of 2.0.0 you can enable output formatting of the field in the details settings. When enabled it will format value directly from AADDEE to "#AADDEE" and "transp" to "transparent".

So you can now simply write:

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

// outputs
// background-color: #AEADEA
  • added converting "0" settings to "000000", just in case ;)
This update should be save to update and backward compatible, but as always you should first test on a development server if you have a chance. In case something went wrong just ask here in the forums and I'm sure it will be solved within short time.
 
Thanks

Hello Soma,
thank you for this useful module. I like it very much and use it in a few projects.
 

I think I found a little bug.
Line 65 in FieldtypeColorPicker.module says

if($value == "0") $value = "00000";

One 0 is missing, so it outputs #00000 in case of black. Most Browsers ignore that, I think, instead of interpreting it as black.

Greetings :)

Great module, how ever it bugs with Reno theme, requires following:

.colorpicker input {
    background-color: transparent !important;
    border: 1px solid transparent !important;
    color: #898989 !important;
    padding: 0 !important;
}

Because (/wire/modules/AdminTheme/AdminThemeReno/styles/classic.css):

input:not([type=submit]):not([type=file]):not([type=checkbox]):not([type=radio]), textarea {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #eaf0f2;
    border-color: #aec5cd #c7d7dd #c7d7dd;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 1px;
    color: #2f4248;
    line-height: 1.3em;
    padding: 0.4em;
}

So either Reno could strict it's styling rules, or module should add !importants, i'd go with first one :)

Cheers

Cool module, thanks!

I am currently creating an easy portfolio for creatives based on PW.

With this function I can share it easily with friends to customize their own.

When It's finished Ill share it over here.

any ideas?

Fatal error: Call to a member function set() on a non-object in /(...)/site/modules/somatonic-ColorPicker-3a00070/FieldtypeColorPicker.module on line 46

Maybe you can give more information where this error happens? I just installed and tested it on a 2.6.18 and works fine.

Note: BTW you shouldn't install a module with the folder name you get from github: somatonic-ColorPicker-3198273192 ....

It's always best to install through ModulesManager or through core Modules New with Classname. "FieldtypeColorPicker"

I've just a small suggestion for the module. How about using the actual color picker in the field settings, where one can choose the default value for the field.

Just had to do a quick head scratch to get the colour picker to work inside PW 3.12 Repeater and Repeater Matrix.

If anyone is looking for a very quick and dirty hack, that seems to work. Not sure if it would cause any other issues.

This is InputfieldFontIconPicker.js

 
function SetUpCPicker(){
    $('div[id^=ColorPicker_]').each(function(){
        var $colorpicker = $(this);

        $colorpicker.ColorPicker({
            color: $(this).data('color').toString(),
            onShow: function (colpkr) {
                $(colpkr).fadeIn(500);
                return false;
            },
            onHide: function (colpkr) {
                $(colpkr).fadeOut(500);
                return false;
            },
            onChange: function (hsb, hex, rgb) {
                $colorpicker.css('backgroundColor', '#' + hex);
                $colorpicker.css('background-image', 'none');
                $colorpicker.next('input').val(hex).trigger('change');
            }
        });

    });

    $('a.ColorPickerReset').on('click',function(e){
        e.preventDefault();
        var color = $(this).data('default') && $(this).data('default') != 'transp' ? '#' + $(this).data('default').toString() : 'transparent';
        $(this).parent().find('input').val($(this).data('default')).trigger('change');
        $(this).parent().find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]').ColorPickerSetColor($(this).data('default').toString());
        $(this).parent().find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]')
            .css('backgroundColor', color)
            .css('background-image', 'none')
            .attr('data-color', $(this).data('default').toString());
        if(color == 'transparent') {
            var modurl = $(this).data('modurl');
            $(this).parent().find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]')
                .css('background-image', 'url(' + modurl + 'transparent.gif)');
        }
    });

    /* additions (swatches) by @Rayden */
    $('div.ColorPickerSwatch').on('click',function(e){
        e.preventDefault();
        var color = $(this).data('color') && $(this).data('color') != 'transp' ? '#' + $(this).data('color').toString() : 'transparent';
        $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('input').val($(this).data('color')).trigger('change');
        $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]').ColorPickerSetColor($(this).data('color').toString());
        $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('div[id^=ColorPicker_]')
            .css('backgroundColor', color)
            .css('background-image', 'none')
            .attr('data-color', $(this).data('color').toString());
        if(color == 'transparent') {
            var modurl = $(this).closest('.ui-widget-content, .InputfieldContent').find('.ColorPickerReset').data('modurl');

                .css('background-image', 'url(' + modurl + 'transparent.gif)');
        }
    });
};
$(document).ready(function() {
    SetUpCPicker();
    $(document).on('repeateradd', '.InputfieldRepeaterMatrix .InputfieldRepeaterMatrixAddLink', SetUpCPicker);
    $(document).on('opened', '.InputfieldRepeaterItem', SetUpCPicker);
});

@krisj I've tried this solution and the colorpicker still does not work in a repeater or repeater matrix. Is there something else i'm misssing?

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Basic Usage

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      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.
       
      WHY?
      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 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      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)  
      Limitations:
      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.
