I would love to see a code generator that generated only tags and those tags are click-to-copy.

Output of a detail page would just be something like this:

list($page_elementsRecords, $page_elementsMetaData) = getRecords(array(
'tableName' => 'page_elements',
'where' => '', // load first record
'loadUploads' => true,
'allowSearch' => false,
'limit' => '1',
));
$page_elementsRecord = @$page_elementsRecords[0]; // get first record

<?php echo htmlencode($page_elementsRecord['num']) ?>
<?php echo $page_elementsRecord['areas_served']; ?>
<?php echo $page_elementsRecord['practice_areas']; ?>
<?php echo $page_elementsRecord['legal_notice']; ?>
<?php echo $page_elementsRecord['feedback']; ?>

<?php foreach ($page_elementsRecord['page_headers'] as $index => $upload): ?>
<?php echo htmlencode($upload['urlPath']) ?>
<?php echo $upload['width'] ?>
<?php echo $upload['height'] ?>
<?php echo htmlencode($upload['info1']) ?>
<?php echo htmlencode($upload['info2']) ?>
<?php echo $upload['extension'] ?>
<?php endforeach ?>

<?php echo $page_elementsMetaData['_listPage'] ?>
<?php echo urlencode(thisPageUrl()) ?>

Using a click-to-copy javascript for each tag so it can be copied and pasted quicker. Right now, I highlight the snippet I need and Ctrl+C and then Ctrl+V. A lot of the time, I just wind up typing out the whole snippet if I think it would be quicker. All of the other text (even in expert mode) is way more than I need and just in the way.

So, is Expert-Expert Mode a possibility?

Thanks,

An "expert expert" mode sounds nice. I'm not really concerned about a "js click-to-copy" though.

Nice! Learned another new thing about CMSB today :) Thanks Dave!

Hi Dave - 

I am excited about being able to do this. I have followed your steps so far but when I go to activate it I get Call to undefined function cg_typeByVersion() in /home/lawweb/public_html/webadmin/plugins/expert_listPage.php on line 14.

I have tried to change anything else yet - I just wanted to get one up and running first

<?php
/*

// ... but can be duplicated and added to the /plugins/ folder to create a new code generator.
// ... Just be sure to change the function names or you'll get errors about duplicate functions.

// register generator
addGenerator('expert_ListPage', 'List Page', 'Show many records.', cg_typeByVersion(2));

// dispatch function
function expertListPage($function, $name, $description, $type) {

  // show options menu, and errors on submit
  expertListPage_getOptions($function, $name, $description, $type);

  // show code
  $instructions   = []; // show as bullet points
  $filenameSuffix = 'list'; // eg: tablename-FILENAMESUFFIX.php
  $code           = expertListPage_getCode();
  cg2_showCode($function, $name, $instructions, $filenameSuffix, $code);
  exit;
}


// user specified options
function expertListPage_getOptions($function, $name, $description, $type) {

    $errorsAndAlerts = '';
    if (!@$_REQUEST['tableName']) { alert("Please select a section!<br>\n"); }

Hi KennyH, 

Can you try adding this line at the top? 

require_once SCRIPT_DIR . '/lib/menus/_codeGenerator/generator_functions.php';

// register generator

Let me know if that works for you.

Getting closer. It let me activate the plugin after adding the code you specified. I went to Code Generator and got the the following error

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare cg_typeByVersion() (previously declared in /home/lawweb/public_html/webadmin/lib/menus/_codeGenerator/generator_functions.php:7) in /home/lawweb/public_html/webadmin/lib/menus/_codeGenerator/generator_functions.php on line 16

Hi Kenny, 

Thanks for the feedback.  Try this fix: 

  • Edit /lib/menus/_codeGenerator\actionHandler.php
  • Replace: include "generator_functions.php";
  • With: require_once "generator_functions.php";

Let me know if that works for you and I'll include that patch in the next release as well.
