<%if Name%><%Name%><%endif%>
In the modify templates I have add tags like:
<input type="text" name="Name" value="<%if Name%><%Name%><%endif%>" size="20">

This is so that I don't have to type everthing again if I want to modify a listing. The problem is what code/tag to I add for:
1. Checkboxes
2. drop down
3. Pictures

Any help would be great.

Thanks

You can do things like:

<%if Tag eq 'x'%>selected<%endif%>

for select lists and

<%if Tag eq 'x'%>checked<%endif%>

...for check boxes, where x is the value

TheStone gives me a better option

the select is working, but the checkbox isn´t

here is a copy,



Hi,

They'll be added in the next release. For now, you should create two
global templates called 'create_select' and create_checkbox', take a look
at the script below:

- create_select:
sub {
my $col = shift;
my $tags = GT::Template->tags;
my $cols = $tags->{home}->{db}->cols;
return if (lc $cols->{$col}->{'form_type'} ne 'select');
my $values;
my $selected = $tags->{home}->{cgi}->{$col};
my $form_values = $cols->{$col}->{'form_values'};
my $form_names = $cols->{$col}->{'form_names'};
if ($form_values and $form_names and ($#$form_values == $#$form_names)) {
for my $i (0..$#$form_values) {
exists $values->{@$form_values[$i]} or $values->{@$form_values
[$i]} = @$form_names[$i];
}
}
else {
$values = $cols->{$col}->{values};
}
return $tags->{home}->{disp}->select ( {
name => $col,
values => $values,
value => $selected,
blank => 0,
});
}

- create_checkbox:
sub {
my $col = shift;
my $tags = GT::Template->tags;
my $cols = $tags->{home}->{db}->cols;
return if (lc $cols->{$col}->{'form_type'} ne 'checkbox');
my $selected = $tags->{home}->{cgi}->{$col};
my $values = $cols->{$col}->{'form_values'};
my $names = $cols->{$col}->{'form_names'};
return $tags->{home}->{disp}->checkbox( {
name => $col,
values => $values,
value => $selected,
blank => 0 });
}

And then you put <%create_select('field_name')%>, <%create_checkbox%> into
your template file.

Hope that helps,
TheStone.</< body>

Make sure that the form_type property of that field should be 'checkbox'

How can I sort the numbers in the select ?

If it´s less than 10, it be ok 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

But if it´s more than 10 it get´s too confused like 37,38,39,20,21,22,23,40,24,41 (this sequence)

What can I do to sort 11,12,13,14 ...

thanks

Hi,

You should change: my $selected = $tags->{home}->{cgi}->{$col};
To: my $selected = $tags->{values}->{$col};

Cheers,
TheStone.
