In Agile Toolkit each object you add is inserted as a child to some other object. They end up in $object->elements array, however there is no easy way to rearrange it.form, grid, tips
Let’s say you want user to be able and select multiple elements in a grid. This can’t be done directly, because grid is supposed to list elements, it shouldn’t be built to intact with it. However grid can be extended and joined with the functionality of the Form to do what’s required.
You can see a working example here: http://atk4.agiletech.ie/grid/selectable.htmlform, grid, jquery ui
With the migration to jQuery (UI) we have received lot of new fancy functionality, but some of the old things stopped worked too. However old stuff is fixable, and if there is anything – please let me know by commenting and I’ll give it a fix.
This tip explains how you can add buttons to the grid. You can see working demo here:grid, jquery ui
jQuery UI have a good support for dialogs and windows. Agile Toolkit 4 takes it to the next level. Most importantly it manages to create contents of the boxes on the fly. Let’s review what we have.
The other day I have added this method for skai, but it’s actually a very curious one.
Agile Toolkit 4 uses atk4_loader widget for AJAX requests. Syntax is very similar to jQuery:
- jQuery: $(‘#div’).load(‘url’);
- atk4: $(‘#div’).atk4_load(‘url’);
If you are getting this problem, this is because button() is a part of jQuery UI 1.8. By default 1.7 is still used. Since 1.8 stable is being released we will switch over shortly, but for now here is the fix. Put this into your config.php to manually change version of jquery / jquery ui:
jquery, jquery ui$config['js']['versions']['jquery']='1.4.2.min'; $config['js']['versions']['jqueryui']='1.8.custom.min';
I’d like to hear your opinion about some suggestions towards button implementation
Currently there are 2 versions running around:
1) $form->addButton()->redirect(‘/’) - in this one form’s addButton is returning $js(‘click’)->univ() of the button. This is backward compatible version and seriously, why would we need to do anything with button but redirect.
2) $form->addButton()->js(‘click’)->univ()->redirect(‘/’) – here addButton returns “View_Button” object. The benefit is that you can do certain things with is such as addLabel or setStyle(), which will affect how button looks. Also instead of just clicks you can use other events, such as mouse-over etc. This is more standard-compliant version IMHOform, grid
Several of current components are relying on their own implementation for file searching:
- SMLite – template inclusion
- class auto-load
- page search
PathFinder is designed to be a system-wide controller which will take all those searches under control. It introduces concepts of Locations and resource types (such as ‘js’, ‘html’ for templates, ‘php’ etc)path
For a while now, many parts of library relied on function API::getDestinationURL($page). This function returns the valid URL which will point to specified page. However the implementation of this function was only working for absolute page names, and was built-in into API.
I am adding implementation which relies on a new class called URL. This class instance will be returned by getDestinationURL(). If you happen to pass this object to getDestinationURL again, it will not going to mess up the URL anymore.url
