4.2. Basic options

Field name

When the MySQL column name is not appropriate for display as the title of the column in the displayed table, alternate text can be specified. To display the word "Subject" instead of the name "Topic" for the example column from previous chapter, add the following option to the script:

Example 4-2. Field name examples

$opts['fdd']['topic']['name'] = 'Subject'; 

When creating MySQL tables for use with phpMyEdit, consider using the underscore character in certain field names. For example, a MySQL column named "last_name" will be displayed as "Last name" in tables created using phpMyEdit (underscore characters are replaced with a space).

Guidance / Help

Sometimes a short title can't be explicit enough, so it is neccessary to provide the user a large description on a given field when he is manipulating with field data. For this purpose was $opts['fdd']['col_name']['help'] option created. Content of this option will appear in the third column of record display pages (Add, View, Change, Copy and Delete modes).

This option is optional. If there is no ['help'] option for all columns, the third "help" column will be omitted.

Example 4-3. Field guidance

$opts['fdd']['topic']['help'] = 'Enter topic of article here.'; 

Because the field content is not escaped, you can add any HTML markups there, for example hyperlink, JavaScript opening popup window, etc.

Example 4-4. Field guidance hyperlink

$opts['fdd']['topic']['help'] = '<a href="help.php?about=topic" target="_blank">?</a>';

Selection boxes

Specify field input type as text box, numeric comparison text box, drop-down selection, or multiple selection. The same input type will be used also for table filtering.

Example 4-5. Filter selections

$opts['fdd']['col_name']['select'] = 'T'; // text box
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['select'] = 'N'; // numeric
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['select'] = 'D'; // drop down 
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['select'] = 'M'; // multiple selection 
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['select'] = 'O'; // radio buttons
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['select'] = 'C'; // checkboxes

Display options

An optional parameter to control whether a field is displayed in the add, change, copy, delete, view, list, or filter views.

  A -- add
  C -- change
  P -- copy
  V -- view
  D -- delete
  L -- table list
  F -- table filter

Example 4-6. Field display options

$opts['fdd']['col_name']['options'] = 'LF'; // shows only in table list/filter

Input settings

There are also additional column-specific options. These apply to certain views or modes (add, change, delete, list). In the previous versions of phpMyEdit these flags was part of ['options'] option. In the current 5.7.1 version, the backward compatibility (BC) is preserved. However this will be removed in the future. Thus specify these flags as a part of ['input'] options. Some other flags may be added into this option as well.

  R -- indicates a field is read only
  W -- indicates a field is a password field
  H -- indicates a field is to be hidden and marked as hidden

Example 4-7. Other display options

$opts['fdd']['col_name']['input'] = 'H'; // hidden field
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['input'] = 'P'; // password field
$opts['fdd']['col_name']['input'] = 'R'; // read-only field

CSS customization

Per field, you can define field CSS class names postfix. This is especially useful in order to highlight one column in a table.

Example 4-8. Field CSS customization

$opts['fdd']['col_name']['css'] = array(
		'postfix' => 'ColName'

More information about CSS handling can be found in the CSS classes policy section.
