Damn, it’s working for me, but I think I’m using the latest SVN copy of TXP which allows angle brackets in attributes. You’re right it doesn’t work with &lt; entities. Hmmmmmm *ponder* let me think about it.

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Some addings:

  • check for php vars, not only servervars or get\post. I meen just $i somewhere in code, and use for it prefix phpvar, for example
  • add modifier to check length of field, like this:
    • <txp:smd_if field="phpvar:my_string" operator="gt:LENGTH" value="5">Long!</txp:smd_if>

Nice ideas, thanks. Will see what I can do in the next revision.

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Some addings (ver. 2)

Add attribute var, to use {var} inside condition. For example:
<txp:smd_if field="srvvar:myvar1" var="just_show_attr" operator="gt:LENGTH" value="5">The length is {just_show_attr}</txp:smd_if>
And if srvvar:myvar1 = 8, then we will get The length is 8. It can be useful to simplify code inside conditions.

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Time for an update in the wake of recent great ideas. v0.73 [ zipped ] adds:

  • Support for :NOSPACE on the begins, ends and contains operators (thanks mapu; though it still doesn’t fix your problem I’m afraid)
  • Support for new field type phpvar for comparing arbitrary global PHP variables (thanks the_ghost)
  • Support for testing field lengths (ditto)
  • Two new replacement tags to display the length of matched fields/values (ditto again)

I wasn’t quite sure what you meant in your post above about the var attribute. The new replacement tags — {smd_if_len_myVarName} — show the length of the matched contents in your container. Does that help?

If anyone has any foibles or enhancements to report, you know where I am.

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

Bloke:

I wasn’t quite sure what you meant in your post above about the var attribute.

I described the Idea not so good, as I can see. Ok, let me try again… Let see your Examaple 1, for example (btw, at your site it has 2 line returns in a row too_):

<txp:smd_if field="section, id" var="section_tmp, id"

     operator="begins, gt"
     value="lion, 12">
 <txp:article />
 The section is {section_tmp}, and the id is {id}.
<txp:else />
 <p>Not today, thanks</p>
</txp:smd_if>

So, the idea is to output fields values with a shorthand – not allways it’s posible ot access their values like <txp:section /> or <txp:article_id />. It can be php var, for example, or something else. And since your plugin parse this values, it can (i think) output their values inside condition.

Can this be understandable now? :)

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

OK, I see what you are getting at now. Thanks for clarifying. So, do you not like the {smd_if_varName} syntax introduced in v0.7 and want to rename variables to your own names?

Every value and field you use in the plugin is given an ‘smd_if_’ prefix and is therefore available as a replacement tag. So you can rewrite the example like this:

<txp:smd_if field="section, id" operator="begins, gt" value="lion, 12">
 <txp:article />
 The section is {smd_if_section}, and the id is {smd_if_id}.
<txp:else />
 <p>Not today, thanks</p>
</txp:smd_if>

However, I have just spotted a small bug that I’ve fixed in v0.74 [ zipped ] whereby if you used two or more similar types of fields/values, the replacement tags from early tests would be overwritten by ones from later tests. That’s now fixed and replacement tags have an index number added to them (e.g. the 2nd value is now smd_if_val2).

If I’ve not explained the replacement tags properly in the help (likely!) I can go and try to make it clearer. Does that help or am I still missing your point?

Re: smd_if: Generic multiple if condition tests

@Stef: Pls. don’t let users rename variables. Code reading (here) will get too complicated as it is already for me :)

As you can probably tell by now, I’m trying to avoid it ;-) It’s bad enough trying to work out what’s going on when using this plugin as it is!

Now it works brilliantly! I used your plugin with this snippet:

<txp:smd_if field="urlvar:print_id" operator="isnum">
  <txp:variable name="print_id" value="{smd_if_print_id}"/>
<txp:else />
  <txp:variable name="print_id" value="error"/>
</txp:smd_if>

Here are my steps to make printer-frindly version:

  1. Made section print which is using page print (code of page print)
  2. in default form, which renders my articles at site made link to section print with urlvar print_id
    1. <a href="/?s=print&print_id=<txp:article_id />" target="_blank">Print this</a>
  3. That’s all! As result we get html page with a small size and with presentation for printing – no colors, boxes and other stuff..

P.S. Of course, you can make link more “clean”, but this one works with any url_mode setting. Current working example is avaible here But it’s in russian, so look for link Версия для печати at the end of articles and click it.
