I see some inconsistencies in the j-cook UI builder between the OLD j-cook settings and the new "standard" of the j-cook v2.0

for example the publish/unpublsh field:
if I created that field with the old builder, then it is (and it was) a BOOLEAN type field, and in the collection view I can chose if I want the toggle option or not.

if it is created with the new V2.0 then it is a integer field, and in the collection view there isn't any toggle functionality to select.
I still don't see how add the toggle functionality in the publish/unpublish field in collection view.

so my questions are:

1) would these inconsistencies give bugs in the generated component?
2) where is the publish / unpublish toggle functionality?

Try, and you will see...

Well, publish wizard has changed a little bit.
It is becoming 'published' only for the field name.

Note : as much as possible, try to keep the defaults names for the wizards.
when the field name is unlocked, it means that you can use another field name, but almost of the time, Joomla impose a name field.
It can be subject for argumentation, but I guess the core team has already had this discussion.

To my opinion, an array property wich define the field names for the native features could be realizable.


Another important thing :
It is now an integer, to handle 'archived' and 'trashed' states. (It can handle more...)
For the moment nothing available more, but just ready for it.
We can call it 'State' instead of 'Publish', the field name remains 'published'

And to finish :
In the grid, the toggle button is always instancied for Publish field linked to the wizard.
... and you can toggle only true or false.

In future in the builder, the fly and grid displays will be handled like the form. I mean, you will be able to switch easily the control for the same data type.
Coding is now a piece of cake

Hi All,

@admin, just wondering if there's any news on when the other workflow states may be be implemented, i.e. archived & trashed? A rough date maybe if not specific at this time?

Also related to this, I wonder will the checked-in task be added within this functionality? I mean, presumably, you plan to implement the Archive & Trash tasks/buttons for managing items in grid view so, I wonder, will the addition of the above options automatically accommodate an additional check-in button/task?

Many thanks,

Gez

Not any news for the moment for trash and archive. It is not a big deal I think.

Can somebody have a look ? It always help a little bit...

About the check-in functionality, you can simply use the Global Check-in of Joomla. Everything is integrated as a standard component.
