Using static_info_tables for country selection

Basics

  • Install Extension static_info_tables
  • Install Extension static_info_tables(_de)(_fr)(_pl) etc… for localized countrynames
  • Import Records of the extensions via Extension Manager (see manual of static_info_tables)
  • Clear Cache
  • Copy all Partials from femanager to a fileadmin folder
  • Set the new Partial Path via Constants: plugin.tx_femanager.view.partialRootPath = fileadmin/femanager/Partials/
  • Open Partial Fields/Country.html and activate static_info_tables (see notes in HTML-File)

Details for Partial Country.html

The idea is very simple. You can change the “options Attribute” of the form.select ViewHelper:

<femanager:form.select
        id="femanager_field_country"
        property="country"
        options="{femanager:Form.GetCountriesFromStaticInfoTables()}"
        defaultOption="{f:translate(key:'pleaseChoose')}"
        class="input-block-level"
        additionalAttributes="{femanager:Validation.FormValidationData(settings:'{settings}',fieldName:'country')}" />
