#13527 New custom field with text editor

Posted Paul Savostin on 18 December 2015 - 11:23 PM

So I think problem is next - u wanna set custom textfield with texteditor,

but u dont have any other fields with type 'text', so GC doesnt add to the page  js for texteditor plugin like ckeditor(or tinymce)

Solution: if dont have another fields with type 'text' u need add  js by manualy.


Somewhere in current controller or better in MY_Controller, then u could use this in any controller, set method

//this js you should output somewhere on the page after JQuery 
public js_files = arrray();

protected function load_texteditor()
    $default_texteditor_path = 'assets/grocery_crud/texteditor';
    $this->js_files[] = $default_texteditor_path.'/ckeditor/ckeditor.js';
    $this->js_files[] = $default_texteditor_path.'/ckeditor/adapters/jquery.js';        

//then in current controller u call

Custom callback field

public function _custom_textfield_with_text_editor($val, $id=NULL)
    $value_from_another_table = '';

    //query to database and get value per $id if u need it
    $data_from_db = ...query;

    if($data_from_db) $value_from_another_table = $data_from_db;
                      //custom field name,    //value          //class for texteditor            
    return form_textarea('message', $value_from_another_table,'class="texteditor"');       

Be careful -  add js only when u dont have other fields with type 'text', otherwise u just use only callback function

This is my solution, mb u find more better :)

like Amit say - happy GCing

Its just some kind of bad magic in GC, in version > 1.4.2 this method presents, anyway u can set this method by yourself using this link https://github.com/s.../pull/299/files

I found the solution! carefully check name of Grocery_CRUD_Model, they must be equal in filename and class name!

Friend, you need to write right callback function and method in GC. Check if it working!

#12864 How to divide two numbers from a field and insert into the third field

Posted Paul Savostin on 20 July 2015 - 09:18 AM

 1) Set [Nisbah_Pengeluaran]




2) In callback


public function _before_insert($post_array)

          $post_array['Nisbah_Pengeluaran'] = $post_array['Jumlah_Pengeluaran'] / ['Jumlah_Tandan'];


      return $post_array;

#12849 How to pass more data to the view?

Posted Paul Savostin on 17 July 2015 - 11:33 PM

I can use them in all subclasses that extends this controller, like u see above i can set common properties and many other stuff and in subclasses add some other data or ovveride anything.

One little example, in every controller u should write $crud = new grocery_CRUD(); and here u write this only one time!

believe me this is very useful and i think this is just the best practices :)

#12847 How to pass more data to the view?

Posted Paul Savostin on 17 July 2015 - 10:43 PM

Hi! Lets say u have the base admin controller :

<?php defined('BASEPATH') or exit('No direct script access allowed');

 * Common controller where we use Grocery CRUD
class Admin_Controller_GC extends CI_Controller
    public $crud;

    //current table
    public $table;

    //all data that we will output
    public $data = array();
    function __construct()
        $this->crud = new grocery_CRUD(); //init Grocery Crud
        //set theme of Grocery CRUD
        //common properties - for example u have common fields active users, active posts and so on  
        $this->crud->field_type('active','true_false',array(0 => 'No', 1 => 'Yes'));                
    //output data
    function _example_output()
        //set current table
        //join our additional data with GC data
        $this->data = array_merge($this->data, (array) $this->crud->render());        
        //do the output
        $this->load->view('admin/main_tpl', $this->data);

So I stay only that stuff u asking about, cause here in this controller we can do many many useful things and I do:)

Then u extend this controller with that u need, add your data like $this->data['some_var'] = $some_data;

Set your database tables like $this->table = 'your_table';

And after all actions with CG api at the end of function just call $this->_example_output();

That's it! ;)

#12833 How to implement a permission system in GroceryCrud?

Posted Paul Savostin on 16 July 2015 - 08:52 AM

Hi! If u have n_n relation so why in first table u have 2 keys? an usual case is table1, related_table_1_to_table_2, table2.

1)You can use custom model, where u extend your query.

2)You can extend  query right in controller, just ($this->db->select ->where.... )

3)Yes to "join" few where condition u just do what u did above, only it could be shorter - $this->grocery_crud->where('field1',$var1)->where('field2', $var2) or using array in where

$this->grocery_crud->where(array('field1' =>  $var1, 'field2' => $var2). But this is CI stuff, look at the docs Database Active Records class in CI documentation

#12791 Save/Update and go back to list button doesn't work

Posted Paul Savostin on 12 July 2015 - 04:31 PM

In firebug i see next

TypeError: $(...).tinymce is not a function

So in the from we have three buttons - save (type='submit'), Save and go to the list (type='button') and Cancel (type='button')

Maybe I am wrong but two last buttons work with javascript handle - as we know if any javascript error then script just stop and other will not work.

And first button works because it plain submit form button.

#12721 How can I convert datetime field to "Y-m-d" formate

Posted Paul Savostin on 02 July 2015 - 08:11 AM

Hi! If in database you have timestamp then you dont need to use function "strtotime" - it will be just date('Y-m-d', $your_timestamp_date);

I have misprint in word callback_column - it will be without "S" at the end (You can see list function on the GC site)

Man, learn PHP and GC, I see that you just copy paste and dont thinking at all...

#10888 [updated 24/11/2012] Dependent dropdown (library)

Posted Paul Savostin on 15 March 2014 - 11:58 PM

Its My problem


i use your same code and database . from first post. only a little change on 'Url'

$crud = new grocery_CRUD();
$crud->set_relation('goods_country', 'dd_country', 'country_title');
$crud->set_relation('goods_state', 'dd_state', 'state_title');
$crud->set_relation('goods_city', 'dd_city', 'city_title');

// settings

$fields = array(

// first field:
'goods_country' => array( // first dropdown name
'table_name' => 'dd_country', // table of country
'title' => 'country_title', // country title
'relate' => null // the first dropdown hasn't a relation
// second field
'goods_state' => array( // second dropdown name
'table_name' => 'dd_state', // table of state
'title' => 'state_title', // state title
'id_field' => 'state_id', // table of state: primary key
'relate' => 'country_ids', // table of state:
'data-placeholder' => 'select state' //dropdown's data-placeholder:

// third field. same settings
'goods_city' => array(
'table_name' => 'dd_city',
//'where' =>"post_code>'167'", // string. It's an optional parameter.
//'order_by'=>"state_title DESC", // string. It's an optional parameter.
'title' => 'id: {city_id} / city : {city_title}', // now you can use this format )))
'id_field' => 'city_id',
'relate' => 'state_ids',
'data-placeholder' => 'select city'

$config = array(
'main_table' => 'dd_goods',
'main_table_primary' => 'goods_id',
"url" => base_url()."/index.php/main/add_user/",
$categories = new gc_dependent_select($crud, $fields, $config);

// first method:
//$output = $categories->render();

// the second method:
$js = $categories->get_js();
$output = $crud->render();
$output->output.= $js;

i have face to this problem too and fix for this next -  add default empty <option value="" selected></option> to edit callback method in 

"...   if ($item[$this->fields[$field_info->name]['id_field']] == $value)...." if this condition FALSE


string number 163 of this library

By the way special thanks to Victor for this amazing lib
