echo package group description in a service tab


Question

Hi, not sure if anyone can help me with this but i'm trying to echo ($package_group->description) in a service management tab but can't quite figure out the syntax.

If anybody could educate me on how to do that it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Technically that looks like it would work.  That being said it would usually look something like this in Blesta:

<p><?php echo $this->Html->ifSet($package_group->description);?><p>

This does of course assume that $package_group was fetched in the controller and passed to the view.

Hi Jono, thanks for your response. I guess that's where I'm going wrong. How would I fetch $package_group and pass it to the view?

Are you sure the package group is what you're looking for?  Each service is assigned to a package.  That package has a description.  That package may be assigned to any number of package groups.  To access the $package in the view you would add this to the controller:

$this->view->set('package', $package);

To display the package description you would do:

<p><?php echo $this->Html->ifSet($package->description);?><p>

To display the package group descriptions you could do something like:

<?php
foreach ($this->Html->ifSet($package->groups, []) as $package_group)
?>
<p><?php echo $this->Html->ifSet($package_group->description);?><p>
<?php
}
?>

Hi Jono, thanks for your help. It is definitely package group description i was after as i'm using the group as a product and the packages as tiers for that product. your solution only half worked since the module controller was already setting $this->view->set("package", $package->meta );  and it seemed i could only get one or the other working and not both.

I'l just have to find a developer to implement it for me since it seems it should be sufficiently straight forward for someone in the know. Hopefully @Blesta Addons reappears soon so i can hire him since he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth.

Thanks again for your help 🙏🏿

You really don't need

$this->view->set("package", $package->meta ); 

Since you can access the package meta from the view if you use:

$this->view->set('package', $package);

That first 'package' parameter determines the variable name in the view so if you have two $this->view->set('package', ....); statements then they would conflict.

Thanks jono, you're right, i got it working. i used $this->view->set('package', $package); in the controller and removed $package->meta like you stated.

i then edited the pdt which was originally echo $this->Html->ifSet($package->someMeta) ; and changed it to echo $this->Html->ifSet($package->meta->someMeta) ;

Appreciate your help. 🙏🏿

@Jono one last thing on the matter. i'm trying to get the Package Group Name in the email template for the package but at a loss. it's not really clear in the Package Welcome Email section of the docs. Can you assist me with the appropriate tag to use to get the name of the package group to be displayed in the emails. thanks.
