Project Summary

Configure and create custom layouts without drag and drop.


Readme

Advanced Custom Layout Bundle

Configure and create custom layouts without drag and drop.

Usecase

Sometimes you might have to create multiple custom layouts for multiple dataObjects. Additionally, you want to only adapt one field while keeping the rest always the same. The current Pimcore implementation makes it necessary to adapt all custom layouts as soon as you ClassDefinition changes. Therefor we created this bundle.

Here you can simply adapt visibility and editability of fields without having to drag and drop them again.

Main features:

  • saving a ClassDefinition will also recreate the custom layouts
  • decide wether you want to show all fields and adapt only mentioned ones or if you want to only show the mentioned fields
  • define roles and workflow states which will automatically apply the custom layout

Note: this bundle will create custom layouts but taking the default class's layout definition and adapt the field-attributes. Hidding all fields will still keep layout elements.

Installation

composer require basilicom/pimcore-advanced-custom-layout-bundle --dev

Add a new configuration file config/packages/custom_layouts.yaml. An example configuration can be found in config/packages/example.custom_layouts.yaml.

Configuration

advanced_custom_layout:
    Pimcore\Model\DataObject\TestObject:
        # layouts
        custom_layout:
            label: "My custom layout"
            mode: !php/const Basilicom\AdvancedCustomLayoutBundle\Model\CustomLayoutConfig::MODE_EDIT
            auto_apply_roles: []
            auto_apply_workflow_states: []
            fields:
                title:
                    title: "Overwritten Titel"
                    editable: false
                    visible: false
            layoutElements:
                Data Quality:
                    title: "Overwritten Titel"
                    visible: false
  • Pimcore\Model\DataObject\TestObject: is the class name of the object you want to configure the custom layout for.
  • custom_layout is the identifier of the custom layout. You can define multiple custom layouts for one class.
  • label is the label of the custom layout which will be displayed in the object edit mode.
  • mode is the mode of the custom layout. See below for more information.
  • auto_apply_roles is an array of roles which will automatically apply this custom layout.
  • auto_apply_workflow_states is an array of workflow states which will automatically apply this custom layout.
  • fields is an array of fields which will be used for this custom layout.
  • fields.title is the name of the field.
  • fields.title.title is the new label of the field which will be displayed in the object edit mode.
  • fields.title.editable is a boolean value which defines if the field is editable or not.
  • fields.title.visible is a boolean value which defines if the field is visible or not.
  • layoutElements.Data Quality will apply on all LayoutElements which have the name Data Quality.
  • layoutElements.Data Quality.title overwrites the visible label of the layout element.
  • layoutElements.Data Quality.visible determines if the layout element will be visible/added to the custom layout

Custom Layout Modes

Edit Mode

A custom layout with this setting will consist of all fields of the layout definition. The provided settings will then overwrite the default settings.

advanced_custom_layout:
    Pimcore\Model\DataObject\TestObject:
        # layouts
        custom_layout:
            label: "My custom layout"
            mode: !php/const Basilicom\AdvancedCustomLayoutBundle\Model\CustomLayoutConfig::MODE_EDIT
            fields:
                title:
                    title: "Overwritten Titel"
                    editable: false
                    visible: false

In this example we will keep all layout and field definitions but overwrite the title, lock and hide the field.

Show Mode

A custom layout with this setting will hide all fields which are not defined in the configuration. Additionally, the provided settings will overwrite the default settings regarding being editable or visible.

advanced_custom_layout:
    Pimcore\Model\DataObject\TestObject:
        # layouts
        custom_layout:
            label: "My custom layout"
            mode: !php/const Basilicom\AdvancedCustomLayoutBundle\Model\CustomLayoutConfig::MODE_SHOW
            fields:
                title:
                    title: "Overwritten Titel"
                    editable: false

In this example we will only show the title attribute which is not editable anymore.

Utilization

Updating Custom Layouts

To update the custom layouts you have to run the following command:

bin/console basilicom:custom-layouts:load

For documentation purposes

In some cases you might want to generate an overview of all fields settings per layout. In order to do so, you can run the following command:

bin/console basilicom:custom-layouts:create-excel

The file will be created in project/var/bundles/AdvancedCustomLayouts/CustomLayouts.xlsx.

TODOs

  • new mode to extend existing custom layouts, this is usefull if custom layouts are created by the user beforehand
    • allow to set layout reference to create a new custom layout by a reference to easily multiple custom layouts
  • ObjectBricks are not supported yet
  • add custom logic to also allow custom layouts for field collections
  • hide layout elements as soon as all child-fields are hidden
