Basic Usage

The code below is responsible for showing a list of elements types related to the relations editable.

<p>{{ "Types of elements" | trans }}:</p>
{% if editmode %}
{{ pimcore_relations("objectPaths") }}
{% else %}
{% for element in pimcore_relations("objectPaths") %}
<li>{{ element.getType() }}</li>
{% endfor %}
{% endif %}

Picture below, presents the editmode preview:

The frontend part looks like that:

To better understand what exactly is the $element variable, have a look at the output below:

array(6) {
[0] => string(27) "Pimcore\Model\DataObject\Folder"
[1] => string(32) "Pimcore\Model\DataObject\BlogArticle"
[2] => string(32) "Pimcore\Model\DataObject\BlogArticle"
[3] => string(27) "Pimcore\Model\Document\Page"
[4] => string(27) "Pimcore\Model\Document\Page"
[5] => string(25) "Pimcore\Model\Asset\Image"

Example with allowed types and subtypes

Similar to the single relation editable, this editable also could specify allowed types, subtypes and classes. For example:

{{ pimcore_relations("objectPaths", {
"types": ["asset","object"],
"subtypes": {
"asset": ["video","image"],
"object": ["object"]
"classes": ["person"]
}) }}

Now, a user is not able to add other elements than specified in the types configuration part.
