Hi everyone
Is it possible to automatically fill the available values for a Radio Group Element (or Checkbox Group Element or Select from list Element) from a database table?


At least weekly, the meal menu changes at a hostel and the students that live there have to book their meal choices for the following week.

The changed menu will need to be imported, and the new meal options must automatically show in the Radio Button Element in the form.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Len

Hi,

for select list->
Go to select list->Propeties->List->leave this empty

Then go to your form->Advanced->More options->Form pieces->Before form pieces:
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib'); //Include BreezingForms Library
$db = JFactory::getDBO();//Get Database Object
  
//Create your own query here
$db->setQuery('Select username From #__users '); 
  
$result = $db->loadColumn(); //load the result from the query
$test = "";
for ($i = 0; $i < count($result); $i++)
{
     $test .= "0;".$result[$i].";".$result[$i]."\n";
}
 
function ff_setSelectList($name, $value)
{
     global $ff_processor;
     for ($r = 0; $r < $ff_processor->rowcount; $r++)
     {
          $row =& $ff_processor->rows[$r];
          if ($row->name==$name)
          $row->data2 = $value;
          unset($row);
     } // for
} // ff_setSelectList
 
ff_setSelectList('nameofselectlist', $test);
Select username From #__users this query you can replace with yours

for radio group->
go to radio group->Propeties->Group->leave this empty
This sample for select lists works also with Radiobutton groups.

Please replace nameofselectlist with name of your select list (not title), if you want to populate radio group then replace it with name of radio group (not title)

If you need anything else, feel free to ask

Regards,
Tihana

Hi,

I will help you with the code.
Did you try the code from message above?
If you get in stuck, I can do it for you, but I need your backend link, login information and form name.
