Hey,

Is it possible to output/show the order value for each row in a repeatable region?

I'm using the repeatable regions within a bit of javascript to play videos in a browser in a loop, the below works perfectly but would love to change the order through the CMS' drag and drop ordering. It might be a big ask, but thought I'd check with the experts!

Many thanks!

Code: Select all
<?php require_once( 'admin/cms.php' ); ?>
<cms:template title='Airtame' />
<cms:repeatable name='content_video' label='Video Playlist'>
<cms:editable type='file' name='video' label='Video' input_width='850' />
<cms:editable type='text' name='order' label='Order' col_width='100' input_width='20' />
</cms:repeatable>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3600" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css" />
<script src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>

<video autoplay muted id="myVideo">
  <source src="" type="video/mp4">
</video>
<script>
    var videoSource = new Array();

<cms:show_repeatable 'content_video' >
videoSource[<cms:show order />]='<cms:show video />';
</cms:show_repeatable>

var videoCount = videoSource.length;
var i=1;

$("#myVideo").attr("src",videoSource[0]);
  $('#myVideo').on('ended', function(e) {

    if(i == (videoCount)){
      i = 0;
    }
    videoPlay(i);
    });

function videoPlay(videoNum)
    {
       i++;
    $("#myVideo").attr("src",videoSource[videoNum]);
    }


</script>
<?php COUCH::invoke(); ?>
Simply replace "order" with k_count and add startcount -
Code: Select all
<cms:show_repeatable 'content_video' startcount='0' >
    videoSource[<cms:show k_count />]='<cms:show video />';
</cms:show_repeatable>


Videos will be indexed correctly, starting from top to bottom, 0 to ..

Startcount is needed because later in the script there is an explicit value 0
$("#myVideo").attr("src",videoSource[0]);


Even a field 'order' is redundant now.. :)
