Re: smd_macro: Create custom virtual Txp tags that do stuff

I was using smd_macro before like this:

<txp:macroname>
{smd_container}
</txp:macroname>

Now this can be done nicely with an ouputform <txp::macroname>
But how could I achieve the “containering”
Am I missing something? What would be the substitution of {smd_macro} in a form setup inside and article?

Wrap your content with <txp::form_name>your container</txp::form_name> and then access the contained content via the yield tag without attributes (just note there’s a bug in 4.8.1, so please use 4.8.2-dev if you’re doing this, as that’s been patched and will be out very soon).

You can also pass parameters in via attributes:

<txp::form_name size="big" colour="yellow" />

And then access those inside your form, with the yield tag and <txp:if_yield> if you like:

<ul>
<li>Chosen size: <txp:yield name="size" default="medium" /></li>
<li>Chosen colour: <txp:yield name="colour" default="red" /></li>
<txp:if_yield name="width">
   <li>Chosen width: <txp:yield name="width" /></li>
</txp:if_yield>
</ul>

Hope that helps.

Re: smd_macro: Create custom virtual Txp tags that do stuff

Damn! I knew it was too simple… So far I was using yield always with a name attribute and I thought it needed it. The rest I knew already but thanks for pointing it out again.

So <txp:yield/> (without a parameter) = {smd_container}

I just installed 4.8.2 dev version and it works perfect. Thanks Stef.

Yes, and <txp:yield else /> gives you access to any ‘false’ (else) branch in your form.

Just an example:

Great code, thanks!

I am adding decoding = "async" so that PageSpeed Insights does not swear.
