Description

I think that the option "displayCond" should be an array of conditions instead of just one string.

'displayCond' => Array (
"FIELD:myfieldname:!=:myvalue",
"FIELD:myfieldname:IN:4,5,6",
),

(issue imported from #M7531)

I'm in the need for a similar thing, though it is a bit more complex here. So I decided to come up with the attached patch, which allows grouping by AND or OR and works recursively... the following example reads

displayCond true if
(my_field1 &&
my_field2!=3 &&
(my_field3 || my_field4 || my_field5 && my_field6) ||
my_field7 ||
my_field8
)

[...]
'displayCond' => array (
'AND' => array (
'FIELD:my_field1:REQ:true',
'FIELD:my_field2:!=:3',
'OR' => array (
'FIELD:my_field3:REQ:true',
'FIELD:my_field4:REQ:true',
'AND' => array(
'FIELD:my_field5:REQ:true',
'FIELD:my_field6:REQ:true',
)
)
),
'OR' => array (
'FIELD:my_field7:REQ:true',
'FIELD:my_field8:REQ:true',
)
),
[...]

@Xavier: why did you drop this feature? i just checked it and seems ok (and useful)
should we propose it to 4.7?

I also agree that this feature could be very useful! Why isn't this feature going into the core?

4.8?

Updated by Robert Wildling over 9 years ago

I'd like to join the credo! Please get it into core! Thanks!

#10

Updated by Stefan Neufeind over 9 years ago

Haven't taken a look at the actual implementation. But yes, it would be really great to be able to combine multiple conditions.
Since 4.8 will be called 6.0 now, maybe for 6.0? :-)

Seems like a useful feature. Anyone who wants to push a patch to gerrit?

How about introducing a USERFUNC: option?

Would that serve your needs. The proposed array solution looks complex and there will be edge cases which still cannot be covered

#13

Updated by Stefan Neufeind over 9 years ago

USERFUNC for complex scenarios might be good to have. But imho we should have something built in as was proposed with that patch (though it looks complex at first). But I think for some small AND/OR it's more handy to have that builtin than through a USERFUNC whenever you need it.

Also note that USERFUNC might work on the server-side - but we have it on the client (JS) as well (flexform with displayCond).

As author of this patch some years ago I'm hereby adding my vote for it ... :)

I haven't needed this neat feature for quite a while - as until today. The feature is tested in a productive environment since 3 years without any failures; the patch is still applying to 4.7.
For those who need a quick&dirty solution (like me today), I uploaded an extension which XClasses t3lib_tceforms (please forgive me, dear TYPO3 gods ;) )

#16

You've also got my positive vote ;-)

May be there is any processing-hook that may be suiteable for adding the patch?

I think this patch is a must-have to go into the TYPO3-Core.

Is there any plan to finally integrate multiple displayCond into the "final" TYPO3-Core anytime?

More complex TYPO3-Plugin make it really neccessary to integrate such a feature! And for now the only "Hack" ist to locally patch or XClass TYPO3 to get it working. Neither the one nore the other of these is really good to handle.

Please let us know when this feature will be going to be finally reviewed and integrated into TYPO3-Core.

Gabriel, if you want this feature so much, why is there no review from you?

Well what can I say much more. I think there have been enough suggestions how to implement this feature. I would prefer the Array-Way combined with the possibility for a userFunc for more complex matches. The userFunc-Method would also keep the door's open for further matching-patterns that may be implemented into core later on.

Thanks a lot for merging this.

Does this also work in flexforms? If so, could you please give us an example?

Yes it also works in FlexForms. I just have created a documentation in german. At the bottom you see a nested example how to use this cool new feature in FlexForms.
