• Hello Fabrik Community

    Fabrik is now in the hands of the development team that brought you Fabrik for Joomla 4. We have recently transitioned the Fabrik site over to a new server and are busy trying to clean it up. We have upgraded the site to Joomla 4 and are running the latest version of Fabrik 4. We have also upgraded the Xenforo forum software to the latest version. Many of the widgets you might have been used to on the forum are no longer operational, many abandoned by the developers. We hope to bring back some of the important ones as we have time.

    Exciting times to be sure.

    The Fabrik 4.0 Official release is now available. In addition, the Fabrik codebase is now available in a public repository. See the notices about these in the announcements section

    We wish to shout out a very big Thank You to all of you who have made donations. They have really helped. But we can always use more...wink..wink..

    Also a big Thank You to those of you who have been assisting others in the forum. This takes a very big burden off of us as we work on bugs, the website and the future of Fabrik.

Show/hide button in list view



I have a List with a php plugin enabled that will display a button for sending emails (run some code then send e-mail). The button is set to be visibile for a specific Joomla viewlevel but I need more, I need to show this button only if there is a specific value selected and saved for a dropdown field in form.

In short, how can I do the same as form_xx for list_xx to show/hide a button (not a column) based on another element value when the List load the rows? Or at least tell me how to get the value of an element in list_xx, I couldn't find any information in wiki or forum..

Thank you
Easiest way may be to hide the button with custom CSS.
If it's only one value (or only some values) of your dropdown field which should show the button I would
If it's relevant for security that the button doesn't do anything you must check also inside your php code because CSS (similar to JS) can always be manipulated by the user.

Or create a custom list template and modify default_headings.php and default_row.php for skipping the php button.
Thank you very much for help, I managed to hide the button ;) There is a part in php code that check if all conditions are meet and run the code, else redirect to main page.
We are in need of some funding.
More details.

Thank you.
