#article_form and txpAsyncForm: some questions

Hi Txp core team,

I noticed that when I modify some custom fields with btw_customize plugins (add class, hide by sections, etc.), I loose my changes when I save Articles.

I looked a bit what happens with the ajax function.
txpAsyncForm send datas and recieve an answer : a jQuery code to execute for update article-form :

;
                $(document).ready(function ()
                {
                    $("#messagepane").html("<span class=\"messageflash success\" role=\"alert\" aria-live=\"assertive\"><span class=\"ui-icon ui-icon-check\"></span> Article publié. &#160;<a class=\"close\" role=\"button\" title=\"Fermer\" aria-label=\"Fermer\" href=\"#close\">&#215;</a></span>");
                });;
$("#article_form [type=submit]").val(textpattern.gTxt("save"));
$("#article_form").addClass("published").removeClass("saved");
$("title").replaceWith($("<div><title>5 jours à 400€ - Memento_FR &#124; Textpattern CMS</title></div>").find("title"));
$("#view_modes").replaceWith($("<div>\n<div id=\"view_modes\">\n<ul>\n<li class=\"active\" id=\"tab-text\"><a data-view-mode=\"text\" title=\"Mode saisie\" aria-pressed=\"true\" role=\"button\" href=\"#\">Saisie</a></li>\n<li id=\"tab-html\"><a data-view-mode=\"html\" title=\"Vue HTML\" aria-pressed=\"false\" role=\"button\" href=\"#\">HTML</a></li>\n<li id=\"tab-preview\"><a data-view-mode=\"preview\" title=\"Aperçu de l’article\" aria-pressed=\"false\" role=\"button\" href=\"#\">Aperçu</a></li></ul>\n</div></div>").find("#view_modes"));

Why sometime you just inject values to existing field, and why sometime you replace part of DOM and inject new markup with .replacewith() fct ?

In fact, I don’t understand why is necessary to make all this changes after save Async form ? If anyone can give some explanations.
Thanks.

I haven’t been there when async saves were introduced, but worked on this part later, so here are my two kopecks. Two main reasons for value/markup updates are, imo:

  • data validation (like invalid date, non-existing image id, etc)
  • plugins accommodation: let plugins modify the default output, registering a callback.

The markup of some article panes has been changed in 4.6, this can explain the problems with bwt_customize.

Thx Oleg,

Ok thanks. But what append with Javascript that modify some markup ? Modifications are removed. txpAsyncForm make a reset.

What the best way with 4.6 for make some change in article tab with Javascript ? and prevent txpAsyncForm reset ?

The markup of some article panes has been changed in 4.6, this can explain the problems with bwt_customize.

I used bwt_cutomize 0.7.5. modified by Jakob, and updated for TXP 4.6. Work great. Only problem is that since Txp 4.6, AsyncForm reset custom fields markup. All Dom modifications in custom fields are deleted after save article. It’s funny because if you move a custom field outside #txp-custom-field-group-content block, AsyncForm reset orginal custom-field inside #txp-custom-field-group-content. You have 2 same custom field :)

Re: #article_form and txpAsyncForm: some questions

Hi core team,

Julian work actually in a update of bwt-customize for TXP 4.7.

And it’s a nightmare to make it working as he worked before TXP 4.6.

Actually, each time a article is saved, Txp use replaceWith jQuery fonction to remove and recreate DOM elements.
Txp could not use cleaner solution by modifying the attributes of existing elements instead of rewrite entire sections of the DOM?

Thanks.

It can (I think) because we have the option of declaring a piece of the DOM as:

  • STATIC (unchanges on Ajax return)
  • VOLATILE (DOM node rewritten on Ajax return)
  • VOLATILE_VALUE (just value injected on AJax return)

Custom fields are, however, defined as VOLATILE, hence they are completely rewritten. This is probably to help plugins such as per-section custom fields to operate, as they can then more easily enable/disable the entire field. Not sure.

It may be a case that some plugins could benefit from being VOLATILE_VALUE only. Not sure how to factor that in though.

EDIT: In the new custom fields implementation, slated for 4.8, perhaps each field’s definition could determine if it was to replace everything or just the value? That does push some implementation logic onto designers though, which is something I’m keen to avoid. We’ll think about it.

Re: #article_form and txpAsyncForm: some questions

I’ll have to check the most recent – albeit rather unlikely and nonsensical – situation that sacripant found. Maybe there’s a way of determining what needs to be volatile.

My hope and thinking was that with the forthcoming core implementation of custom fields, the position and order of the custom field on the respective pane could be determined when creating the custom field, so that the write pane loads them in the correct location/position on page load (and ajax refresh). bot_wtc would then only be needed (if at all) for things like show/hide by section and wouldn’t contain any code to move items around the write pane.

Re: #article_form and txpAsyncForm: some questions

Thanks Steve for clarifications.

If I understand, there is no granularity between Volatile_value that allow to change only the value attribut, and volatile.

If you want just add a class, add a required or disabled attribut or modify any attribut, Txp erase/replace DOM with a jackhammer.
I understand that it’s more easier for php. But from a front-end point of view, it’s radical.

firstly, I think It would be better if the fields were individually overwritten.
Actually, all custom fields are overwritten in one pass.

Could we not gain flexibility if each custom field are overwrittern separately?
Or explained differently: it would be better to apply volatile to the fields directly instead of the parent block.

There should be. I thought only the value was updated and the surrounding markup remains when VOLATILE_VALUE was employed. Will check one day.

Absolutely. When we move to the new custom fields implementation, we’ll have to do that as there may be no “Custom fields” block as such. Fields will have to be able to be attached anywhere.

Not sure exactly how to do that cleanly yet. We have options:

  • Append them to the DOM in a ‘Custom fields’ area like now and a designer has to drag n drop them (per role?) to their desired location so that all users see them there.
  • Same as above, but allow individual users to lay out the panel.
  • ‘Attach’ the fields to existing fields when they are defined – perhaps via a dropdown selector and then ‘before’ or ‘after’ to appear above or below. But that would need to take into account other custom fields (for the current content type) so they can have other fields attached to them! Tricky?
  • A variant on the above: some way for each field to raise a callback, like inputLabel() does, but specifically for the purpose of “subscribing” or “attaching” other fields to it and then nominating which fields are related to other fields.
  • Something else…

One thing to be aware of is that (tentatively – although it doesn’t work intuitively enough for my liking yet) custom fields have a “Created” and “Expiry” date so you can phase old ones out if you like and replace them, while still keeping the data around for ‘expired’ fields in old content types. Thus, the only time the data would be deleted would be if you delete the actual field itself.

It would also mean you could choose when new fields become available but, unfortunately at the current state of the custom fields implementation, they are defined “from now” by default. Thus, when you go to an existing article – one that has a Posted date before the custom field’s Created date – you don’t see the field, which is kind of counter-intuitive to how we have it now.

In 4.7.0 and before, custom fields are “global”: when you create one, it’s available everywhere, from the first article until the last. In the current updated implementation, you have to ensure the field definition has an “old” created date so it shows up as available on older articles before the field was added – if that’s what you want. It might make more sense to default the created date to that of the earliest article and add a “Set created date to now” checkbox alongside, just so there’s less head scratching.

I’m thinking of ditching the created and/or expiry concept for custom fields, but something at the back of my mind is nagging me that it might be useful so I’m still keeping it around unless I hit a serious roadblock. Thoughts welcome, btw.

Re: #article_form and txpAsyncForm: some questions

Or It maybe time to let the layout logic to a dedicated javascript framework.
Throw in the trash “jquery” and especially “jqueryUI” which is no longer useful and look at react / vueJS or other webcomponent framework for Txp back office ?

Re: #article_form and txpAsyncForm: some questions

:-)

Not angry, but from what I’ve tried of React and Angular, I honestly can’t see why anyone uses it. Yes, it promises much. Yes, it’s stateful. But the last few UIs I’ve played with that were built in both of them… man they were slow. It was like wading through treacle. Click. Wait. Update. Wait…

It made the WordPress back-end seem fast.

Things may have moved on, but if client-side layout and management of UI components is where the world is heading, it might be a long while before either wins me over. They’d need to become far more usable compared to the much faster native alternatives before I’d consider it viable.

EDIT: I’m not defending our choice of jQuery UI, btw. I don’t like that either, it was only the best of a bad bunch at the time. And Phil had to do a lot of work to make it even halfway usable!
