This item opens the form used to generate the views of the extension.



Click on the icons at the right hand side of Views:

  • to access to this section of the documentation.

  • to save the configuration

  • to generate the extension.

  • Name: sets the name of the view.

  • Type: use the selector to set the type of the view. It is either List, Single, Edit or Update.

  • Titlebar: the content of this field be displayed as the title bar of the view. If markers ###fieldName### are used, they will be replaced by the label associated with the fieldname for a List view. For Single or Edit views, they will be replaced by the value in the main table by default.

    • Use ###tableName.fieldName### if you want to access to a field which is in another table.

    • By default the raw content of the table is displayed. Use ###render[fieldName]### or ###render[tableName.fieldName]### when rendering is required like dates or selector boxes.

    • Localization by means of the file locallang.xlf can be used with $$$tag$$$ which will be replaced by its value according to the configuration language. The marker $$$label[fieldName]$$$ will be replaced by the fieldName title according to the localization. By default, the main table is assumed. Use $$$label[tableName.fieldName]$$$ if necessary.

  • Item template: this field is for the template for the List, Update or Print views. The fields to include are defined using markers ###fieldName###. Markers ###tablename.fieldname### can also be used. In this case, no rendering processing is performed, the marker is replaced by the value in the selected row.

    In the case of a view Update or Print, markers ###field[fieldName, label]### generate the display of the label (localization can be used with $$$tag$$$ or $$$label[fieldName]$$$), the current value of field fieldName and an input element for update. Markers ###newfield[fieldName, label]### generate the display of the label and an input element for the field fieldName. In both cases, label and field will be wrapped with default CSS classes

    • updateCol1 to updateCol4 for an Update view, respectively for the label, the previous value, the input value, the checkbox.

    • printCol1 and printCol2 for a Print view respectively for the label, the field.

    If you do not want this wrapping, just use $$$label[fieldName]$$$ for the label and ###field[fieldName]### for the field.

  • Folders: this item is shown in the Single and Edit views.Click on the icon to add a folder and fill its label. If the label is defined in the file locallang.xlf, it will be translated to the selected language. Folder can be deleted or ordered using the icons. See the extension sav_library_example0 for an example.

    Folder configuration parameters can be added. Each parameter should be under the same format as the format for the field configuration.

    parameter = value;

    Conventional configuration parameters are:

    • editAdminPlus = 1;: for an Edit view, the folder can be edited if the frontend user has the Admin+ right. To be an Admin frontend user, the user TSConfig must contain a line as follows:

      extKey_Admin = value

      extKey is the extension key and value is one of the possible value of the Input Admin Field defined in the flexform associated with the extension.

      The frontend user becomes an Admin+ user, if the user TSConfig contains a line as follows:

      extKey_Admin = value+
    • cutIf or showIf conditions.

  • Add a print icon: if set, a print icon is added to the view.
