DB Read Relations

relliott 29 Jan, 2016
Hello,

I am trying to join 2 tables using the DB read action. I have successfully joined the 2 tables but the array does not group under the Model ID on the "Basic" tab.

This is what my debug output looks like:

Array
(
    [option] => com_chronoforms5
    [view] => form
    [Itemid] => 113
    [0] => Array
        (
            [repgroup] => Array
                (
                    [user_id] => 490
                    [group_id] => 12
                )

            [repname] => Array
                (
                    [name] => Ryan Elliott
                )

        )

    [1] => Array
        (
            [repgroup] => Array
                (
                    [user_id] => 494
                    [group_id] => 12
                )

            [repname] => Array
                (
                    [name] => Dealer Demo Account
                )

        )

)

Hi relliott,

I had a dig around in the code and think I have a workaround hack for this.

Edit the file /administrator/components/com_chronoforms5/chronoforms/actions/db_read/db_read.php around line 108 like this
			if($config->get('enable_relations', 0)){
				//$form->data = array_merge($form->data, $rows); // comment out the existing line
				// add the following lines
				foreach ( $rows as $k => $r ) {
					$rows[$k] = array_reduce($r, 'array_merge', array());
				}
				$form->data[$model_id] = $rows;
				// end of hack
			}else{
On my test this produces a result like this
    [content] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [id] => 1
                    [title] => Getting Started
                    [created_by] => 455
                    [username] => greyhead
                )

            [1] => Array
                (
                    [id] => 2
                    [title] => My first article
                    [created_by] => 455
                    [username] => greyhead
. . .

Hey Bob,

That worked like a charm.

Thank you so much!

After trying this hack on the relation tab it still doesn't populate the dropdown. I've tried switching the tables between the main table and the relations tab, tried separating into 2 different DB Reads, and tried dozens of different configurations. After 5 days of this, I'm convinced that the relations tab just doesn't work.

Basically, I'm trying to get the field cb_com_company from the second table (using hasMany) to display in a dropdown.

These are what I believe are relevant settings:

Edit Action:DB Read (basic tab)

model id: connection

fields: referenceid,memberid,accepted

conditions:

Code: Select all Expand
<?php
$user = JFactory::getUser();
return array('connection.memberid' => $user->id, 'connection.accepted' => '1');
?>
Edit Action:DB Read (relations tab)

model: profile

type: hasMany

foreign key: id

Join Conditions:

Code: Select all Expand
<?php
$user = JFactory::getUser();
return array('profile.id' => 'connection.referenceid');
?>
All this might be irrelevant as the debugger shows the arrays exactly as I would expect. I'm trying to show the field 'cb_com_company' under the model id 'profile'.

Under the 'dynamic data' tab of the dropdown field, I have the following set...

data path: profile

value key: cb_com_company

text key: cb_com_company

Especially after seeing the field I need in the correct model ID below in arrays, I'm surprised this doesn't work...

hi...

this hack worked for me too, so thanks for that.

But will this hack ever merged in the final component. After the last update the my main form didn't work again and it takes me hours to find out, that this hack was overritten :-( .

Kind regards
Matthias
