(I should give back more to this forum)
TL;DR: How can you get the element number of a field part of a structured field?
$section->num() does not obv work since it’s not a page.
I am building a multi-nested survey and want to build it and manage it from the panel. I am using Kirby Modules (w/ Kirby Sortable) together w/ Kirby Builder. And, I am nesting a modules inside another modules, though I read it’s not meant to work like that.
I’d like to number each module and section (which is part of a structure field from Kirby Builder), by combining the
module number with the
section number, eg:
1. Question A 1.1 Question B 1.2 Question C
I am using this for creating unique
names for the
input tag, not for numbering a list item.
I can do the module numbering easily, since it is a subpage, by echoing
<?php echo $module->num() ?>
But when I try to call again the above code in the snippet (
section) field, I get an error of unknown variable.
Is there a way to traverse and going back from
$section object) to
$module? I tried to use
$parent() without success.
$data->num()) does not output anything, which I understand, since it’s not a page (unlike
I can use
$section->count() to get the number of objects in the collection, but how can I get the correct number for each element? I tried to use
->current() (not knowing what it does), and it outputs
Furthermore: I am up to simplify this whole structure, by not nesting a
$module inside a
$module, and simply creating a
fieldset for Kirby Builder called
fieldname_child and then in its snippet syntax, building the correct numbering if that’s easier.
