How to add additional <IF> templates?

#1 Postby qq_bbq » Feb 27, 2010 11:02 am

For example, in table "Files" I added a field with the name of "new_field" and the type of field is ENUM with values 'AB','BC','CD'

In download0.html template, I want to add <IF> templates like this:
<TMPL_IF AB>
Show text
</IF>

<TMPL_IF BC>
Show text
</IF>

<TMPL_IF CD>
Show text
</IF>

I tried to look in index.cgi and other files for example but can't find anything relevant.

If you just added fields - it will not work that way.
TMPL_IF tag coming from HTML::Template module and could work only with variables passed from Perl code.

You'd better use javascript for your needs.

Please post an example of how to add additional <IF> tags or as you say, pass the variables from Perl code.

In table "Files" I added a field with the name of "new_field" and the type of field is ENUM with values 'AB','BC','CD'

Is the codes encrypted or where would I find the HTML::Template that calls the values from database?

Hi qq.

Just passing variables to an existing template referred to in index.cgi
is easy.

Make a backup of the original .cgi and template first. Then ...

Here's an example of adding my_var parameter in index.cgi:

Code: Select all

   my $val = 1;

   $ses->PrintTemplate("whatever.html",
                       'gen_ip'     => $gen_ip,
                       'gen_user'   => $gen_user,
                       'rec_user'   => $rec_user,
                       my_var => $val,
                      );

and in Templates/whatever.html

Code: Select all

<TMPL_IF my_var>
Show text
</IF>

You will have generate the data for $val first, whether that comes
from a MySQL table or is calculated. And you will have to modify the
relevant template to expect that parameter.

Sometimes that is obvious how to do, and sometimes not so much.

Enjoy, mrperl.

For database values, read index.cgi, find some database code that is similar
to what you want to do, and either extend it or cut-and-paste and replace
this line with your logic in the above example:

Code: Select all

 my $val = 1;


Often it is easy, but sometimes not so much.
