MiguelStevens started a new conversation Pass Data To Field.js In Nova

When in a FormField, IndexField or DetailField, we receive the 'field' prop, I'm guessing that under the hood Nova passes this to these components, now I'm wondering, is it possible to receive php values in the fiels.js file?

MiguelStevens left a reply on Laravel Nova Resource, Combine Fields In Layout?

Thanks for your answer, that still however doesn't allow me to stack input fields next to each other, each Field is still a line on its own..

MiguelStevens left a reply on Search Package That Includes Multiple Models, Related Models And Pagination?

That is paginating a collection, using a macro, that means if there's 2000 records in the database, it will return 2000 records, without pagination.. Only to paginate on the collection afterwards, which has zero performance benefits, it's only masking the issue.

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Laravel Nova Resource, Combine Fields In Layout?

I'm using Laravel and Nova, I have a Collection resource which has multiple fields, now when you define the fields for example:

Text::make('Meta 1 Label')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 1 Value')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 2 Label')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 2 Value')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 3 Label')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 3 Value')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 4 Label')->hideFromIndex(),
Text::make('Meta 4 Value')->hideFromIndex(),

Each field will take up one row, in the html.

with

Now I'm wondering if it's possible to have custom layout options (without having to make a full blown custom Tool), so that it's possible for example to group a few text fields in a div.

Pseudo Code

<div class="flex">
    Text::make('Meta 1 Label')->hideFromIndex(),
    Text::make('Meta 1 Value')->hideFromIndex(),
</div>
<div class="flex">
    Text::make('Meta 2 Label')->hideFromIndex(),
    Text::make('Meta 2 Value')->hideFromIndex(),
</div>

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Search Package That Includes Multiple Models, Related Models And Pagination?

There doesn't seem to be a perfect solution out there for now, Spatie/Searchable doesn't have pagination, Scout doesn't allow looking into related models using the MySQL driver.

What do you use? Is there any good solution (using mysql?)

MiguelStevens left a reply on Laravel Scout Eager Loading Relationships

This doesn't seem to be working? The callback is ignored, is there anything else that needs to happen to make this work?

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Using Translation Strings In Laravel Nova?

I'm building a resource tool, but I'm confused as to how to use translation strings in the Vue components. I'm trying the following

<button
    type="button"
    class="btn btn-default btn-primary inline-flex"
    >
      __('Submit')
</button>

I created an en.json file inside my /resources/lang folder of my package, which contains

{
  "Submit": "Submit"
}

But it's not reading the translation. Any ideas?

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Nova Computed Field Being Ignored

I read in the docs that you can create a computed field, which can use data from the model. https://nova.laravel.com/docs/2.0/resources/fields.html#computed-fields

However this is not working, the field is being ignored, using the following test code

    public function fields(Request $request)
    {
        return [
            Text::make('Name', function () {
                return 'test';
            }),

            ID::make()
                ->sortable()
                ->onlyOnDetail(),
    }

MiguelStevens left a reply on Using The DateTimeField In Nova?

Hi Bobby, Sorry I didn't form my question properly, I meant in Vue components, I'm building a resource tool from scratch and would like to use that field, including validation.. There's no real documentation on how to use the Vue components that are already included in nova. Thanks!

MiguelStevens left a reply on Method For Reusing Test Data?

The data providers don't really fit this case, since I'm only using one dataset per test. The method that returns data is the best solution for now, thanks

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Method For Reusing Test Data?

I have the following tests

public function testReturnsDifferenceInRows()
    {
        $eventDate = factory(EventDate::class)->create([
            'id' => 3,
            'date_from' => Carbon::now(),
            'date_until' => Carbon::now()->addDay(5),
            'time_from' => '08:00',
            'time_until' => '08:00'
        ]);

        $this->assertEquals(6, $eventDate->recurring->count());
    }

    public function testReturnsDifferenceInRowsOverlapUntilTime()
    {
        $eventDate = factory(EventDate::class)->create([
            'id' => 3,
            'date_from' => Carbon::now(),
            'date_until' => Carbon::now()->addDay(5),
            'time_from' => '08:00',
            'time_until' => '02:00'
        ]);

        $this->assertEquals(6, $eventDate->recurring->count());
    }

    public function testReturnsDifferenceInRowsOverlapMidnight()
    {
        $eventDate = factory(EventDate::class)->create([
            'id' => 3,
            'date_from' => Carbon::now(),
            'date_until' => Carbon::now()->addDay(5),
            'time_from' => '23:00',
            'time_until' => '02:00'
        ]);

        $this->assertEquals(6, $eventDate->recurring->count());
    }

As you can see I use almost exactly the same data, the only variables here are the time_from and time_until.

How can I rewrite this as to reuse the other data?

MiguelStevens left a reply on Modifying A HasMany() To Return A Row For Each Date In A Relation

@johnbraun Sure! a Dates model could have a from='20 July 2019' to='25 july 2019'. so when I query the $event->dates(), it should return 5 rows, because there's 5 days in that row

So I need to modify or build upon the hasMany() to return a row based on the result it gets, I hope that's more clear? Thanks

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Modifying A HasMany() To Return A Row For Each Date In A Relation

I have an Event model, that has many Dates. A Date has a from and to field, spanning over multiple days.

I would like to have it so that for every day in a Date, my hasmany returns that day. I have no idea how to even get started on this, can someone nudge me in the right direction? Thanks

MiguelStevens left a reply on Conditions In Scopes?

The situation is more complex, I just simplified it, It has to return limit(0), when there's children found, It can't have any results.. I don't know how to otherwise do this in Laravel

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Conditions In Scopes?

I want to create a function where I limit a query, if the model that I'm querying has a relation (children in this case).

Is a scope the place to do this? Is it possible?

Pseudo-Code:

public function scopeLimitWhenChildren($query) {
    $count = $query->children()->count()
    if ($count) return $query->limit(1);
}

I'm using Laravel Nova, and I'm building a custom resource tool, I use the fillAttributeFromRequest to transform some data before saving it in the database, but I'm not really sure what this method does?

Does it allow us to transform data before showing it in a detail view for example?

I'm using slug-based routing, like this

myapp.com/posts/first-post

I have a Post entity, and a PostTranslation entity, When I create a Post entity, 2 PostTranslation entities are being created (for each language), and they have an empty slug and title field, so the user can choose this. The issue is that when I want to browse to this post, and the user didn't set a slug yet, it will break. How would you handle this?

MiguelStevens left a reply on Is This A Good Way To Include The Previous And Next Record?

We're talking about showing next and previous models, not next and previous pages.. I hope that's clear from the question?

MiguelStevens started a new conversation Is This A Good Way To Include The Previous And Next Record?

I'm wondering if my method of including the next and previous records, are according to good (OOP/Laravel) standards.

In my Model class, I include the following methods

class PortfolioItem extends Model
{
  
    public function getPreviousRecord()
    {
        return PortfolioItem::where('id', '<', $this->id)->first();
    }

    public function getNextRecord()
    {
        return PortfolioItem::where('id', '>', $this->id)->first();
    }
}

Then I check in my view if the returned result is not null, and render those items.

@if($portfolioItem->getPreviousRecord())
    <div>
        <a class="d-block" href="{{ route('portfolio.show', $portfolioItem->getPreviousRecord()->id) }}">
            Vorig Werk
        </a>
        <h5 class="d-none d-md-block">{{ $portfolioItem->getPreviousRecord()->title }}</h5>
    </div>
@endif
