Fieldtype Select External Option

Recommended Posts

If you use latest dev https://github.com/kixe/FieldtypeSelectExtOption/tree/dev you could use the following code (since version 1.1.3)

$news = $pages->find("template=news_detail");
$arr = [];
foreach($news as $n) {
  echo $n->tag; // returns a string with all values separated by pipe, example: '45|67|89|22'
  $arr = array_merge($arr,explode('|',$n->tag));
} 

or (since version 1.1.5)

$news = $pages->find("template=news_detail");
$arr = [];
foreach($news as $n) $arr = array_merge($arr,$n->tag->getKeys());
var_dump(array_unique($arr));

// or
foreach($news as $n) var_dump($n->tag->each('yourPropertyOfSelectExtOption'));
// all table columns are provided as property except those named with reserved words
foreach($news as $n) var_dump($n->tag->each('row'));

or simpler

$news = $pages->find("template=news_detail");
var_dump($selected->each('tag.label')); // return multiple array of each label of field 'tag' of each page in the PageArray

I'm using 1.1.5 on PW 2.6.19 and the table is setup, the selector appears on the page edit form, I can chose "Bob" from the list, save the page and see the data in the database. What I can't do is make the selection via API. Let's say we're using id numbers and usernames and that Bob is #3. I should be able to do $page->myfield = 3 shouldn't I?

Thanks.

Your example works only with echo.

echo $page->myfield; // return the string value, in your case '3'
$page->myfield->value; // return (int)3
$page->myfield->label; // return (string)'Bob';

any value of another column of you table is accessible too with
$page->myfield->columnname;

I'm not trying to access the data from the external table.

I'm trying to build new pages (or update existing ones) using the API.

Doing things manually from the admin's page editor...

"the selector appears on the page edit form, I can chose "Bob" from the list"

I need to be able to do that via the API, so that when somebody views the page, "Bob" will already be selected.

How to set a fieldvalue via API:

/* Inputfieldtype Select */
$page->of(false);
$page->myfield->value = 3;
$page->save('myfield');

/* Inputfieldtype SelectMultiple (add a value) */
$v = new SelectExtOption;
$v->value = 3;
$page->of(false);
$page->myfield->add($v);
$page->save('myfield');

/* this works for both, but will replace existing values */
$page->of(false);
$page->myfield = array(3,7,9); // in case of single select only 1 item in array
$page->save('myfield');

One more supported Inputfield. ^-^
Could get InputfieldSelectMultipleTransfer working with FieldtypeSelectExtOption >= 1.1.3
You just need to remove the '>' in the selector string line 3 and 19 of InputfieldSelectMultipleTransfer.js.

Can you provide an example of the filter function? Here's my field being born:

      $f = new Field();
      $f->type = wire('modules')->get('FieldtypeSelectExtOption');
      $f->set("name", "iu_template")->set("label", "Template");
      $f->option_table = "templates";
      $f->option_value = "id"; $f->option_label = "name";
      $f->filter('id not in (2,3,4,5)');
      $f->set("required",1);
      $f->set("tags", "-impupd")->set("columnWidth",50)->save();

Hi there, great module, using it on 3.0, everything working well except I can only select "select" as inputfield type? Not checkboxes or anything. No config for the module to select available inputfield types that I can see.

@cjx2240 Welcome to the forums. The Module pulls selectable Inputfields from InputfieldPage module. Go to the module settings of InputfieldPage and add the Inputfieldtypes you want to have available in Fieldtype SelectExtOption.

Thanks for the reply, so am I missing something? See attached.

I appreciate the module doesn't claim to be 3.x compatible but it's just so close!

I made an update 4 month ago to solve this. Unfortunately it hasn't been changed on github, but it is marked as changed in my desktop tool. Don't know why. Anyway I will make an update today. I have the module running under 3.0.39 without problems.

Please update to 1.2.1

Hello @kixe

I have installed your module (latest version) on ProcessWire 3.0.36. However, when I create a new field using the FieldtypeSelectExtOption, ProcessWire tries to load the field edition page for the new field (e.g. http://www.mydomain.com/cms/setup/field/edit?id=111), but fails to do so a few seconds of waiting. In Google Chrome I get "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET". I'm not seeing any error(s) (regarding this) logged in ProcessWire's error log and I have $config->debug set to true. I should clarify that the script is not reaching max_execution_time. Apparently what happens is that, somehow, the connection with the page is reset.

This is the first time a ProcessWire module behaves this way for me. Do you have any ideas as to what may be happening?

@efiguerola

Sorry for the late answer. I cannot reproduce this error. This is a Chrome specific error message, which could be related to firewall settings or other security settings on your machine. Since there is no Error logged in the system, everything is working as it should.
Could you please try out with other browsers: Firefox, IE or Safari. What happens there?
Did you make any settings, or does this happen immediately after creation of the field?

@kixe Hi, I gave you the Chrome error code just because it is the one I personally use, but I get the same kind of behavior in other browsers as well, it is not a browser thing.

I didn't get to make any settings because the error happens immediately after creation of the field.

Here is a brief reference to the last updates:

  • Value Preselection
    Since version 1.2.3 it is possible to pre-select a value if the field is required.
  • Language Labels
    In a multilanguage environment, as of version 1.2.4, it is possible to assign a special column to each installed language in the database table to pull the option labels  from. Of course with fallback to the default language.
  • 0 allowed as value
    Since version 1.2.5 int 0 is an allowed value

If Language Support is installed but no additional languages created then there is a PHP error:

PHP Warning: Division by zero in ...\FieldtypeSelectExtOption.module:504

Probably not something that happens very often.

@Robin S
I fixed this and other stuff you mentioned in this post:

It was a bit more complicated than I expected, since PW really doesn't provide '0' as value in a SelectFieldtype.

Pushed another update with new function added which allows to modify the option labels via hook.

Scenario: You want to provide a select drop down for image fields stored in another page as described in this post

In the next step we want to provide labels pulled from the description field (default language in multilanguage environment) instead from the data field providing ugly file names. How can we achieve that?

The description is stored as a json string. We need to extract the label from it. To do so choose 'description' as option label and put the following hook in your /site/ready.php

$this->addHookAfter('FieldtypeSelectExtOption::label', function ($e) {
    $array = json_decode($e->return, true);
    $e->return = $array[0]; // image description in default language
});


Function label() always provides the default lable, the option value, the page to which the field is assigned and the specific field that uses the field type to facilitate customizations.
Default return is the unmodified label pulled from the database column.
ATTENTION: Arguments changed since Version 1.3.5

// Version >= 1.3.5
$this->addHookAfter('FieldtypeSelectExtOption::label', function ($e) {
	$optionLabel = $e->arguments[0];
	$optionValue = $e->arguments[1];
	$page = $e->arguments[2];
	$field = $e->arguments[3];
});

In a single-language site the description is just a plain string, so a user would want to modify the hook accordingly.

I like this new feature allowing the select option label to be determined in a hook, but I wonder if choosing a single column in the field config makes the hookable method too limited. For example, in the case of using the description column as a label for an images select, having the label fall back to the sort integer if an image has no description is worse than having the image filename. Is there a way to conditionally grab a different column value from the row inside the label hook? So you could for example get the "data" (filename) column if the description column is empty.

Not sure if it's practical but I think it would be cool if there was a hookable method that receives an argument of all the row columns as an array lets you return both the option value and label.

@Robin S

Thanks for pointing this out. I agree and changed the 3d argument. It receives now the row related to the value.

ATTENTION: Since Module version 1.3.5 you have access to all row columns as described here

wire()->addHookAfter('FieldtypeSelectExtOption::label', null, function ($e) {
    $optionLabel = $e->arguments[0];
    $optionValue = $e->arguments[1];
    $page = $e->arguments[2];
    $field = $e->arguments[3];
    $row = $e->object->row($field->name, "id=$page->id");
});

 

/**
 * select field for images in a multilanguage environment
 * label pulled from image description in default language with fallback to filename
 */
$this->addHookAfter('FieldtypeSelectExtOption::label', function ($e) {
    $array = json_decode($e->return, true);
    $page = $e->arguments[2];
    $field = $e->arguments[3];
    $row = $e->object->row($field->name, "id=$page->id");
    $e->return = $array[0]? $e->return = $array[0]: $row['data'];
});

Can someone clarify for me if the external DB is read each time an instance of this field is used or is the external DB used only during initial creation and filling of the values and those values/labels are stored in PW? 

thank you

If you use an external DB to generate the select field the DB is queried to generate the field and also if you access the value via Api.
Depending on your setup (single/ mutliple) the returned value is either an object of class SelectExtOption or a WireArray of  SelectExtOption items. This module does not 'import' anything.

The value reference is of type integer and stored in the PW Database.

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
    • By Mike Rockett
      TextformatterTypographer
      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.
      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.
    • By robert
      I often had the need for an overview of all used fields and their contents for a specific page/template while developing new websites without switching to the backend, so I made a small module which lists all the needed information in a readable manner (at least for me):
      Debug Page Fields
      https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessDebugPageFields
      It adds two new properties to all pages:
      $page->debugFieldValues – returns an object with all (sub-)fields, their labels, fieldtypes and values $page->debugFieldTypes – returns an object with all fieldtypes and their corresponding fields // List all values of a pages $page->debugFieldValues // List a specific field $page->debugFieldValues->fieldname // List all used fieldtypes of a page $page->debugFieldTypes I recommend using it in combination with Tracy Debugger, Ray, Xdebug etc. as it returns an object and is only meant for developing/debugging uses. 
      For now, the fieldtype support includes mostly fieldtypes I use in my projects, but can easily be extended by adding a new FieldtypeFIELDNAME method to the module. I use it with five different client installations (all PW 3.0.*), but of course there might be some (or more) field configurations which are not covered correctly yet.
      Supported fieldtypes
      Button Checkbox Color Combo Datetime Email FieldsetPage * File FontIconPicker Functional Image ImageReference MapMarker Multiplier Mystique Options Page PageIDs PageTitle Radio Repeater * RepeaterMatrix * RockAwesome SeoMaestro Table Text Textarea Textareas Toggle URL * The fields with complete subfield-support also list their corresponding subfields.
      Installation
      Download the zip file at Github or clone the repo into your site/modules directory. If you downloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory. In your admin, go to Modules > Refresh, then Modules > New, then click on the Install button for this module. As this is my first ›public‹ module, I hope I did not miss any important things to mention here.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.6.0
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      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.

      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.
