Description

Tablesorter: dropdowns in tsfilters and shown as text filters (most of them) when server=y

Reproduced at the show instance from this related report:
https://dev.tiki.org/item6200

http://xavi-9794-6200.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Bug6202
u: admin
p: 12345

edit the page, and you will see that many of the filters where set as dropdowns, However, they are shown as text filters.

Solution

Except for tracker type "dropdown" fields where the dropdown options are specified in the tracker field definition, dropdown lists cannot be automatically generated when using ajax by design. This is because with ajax only some of the rows may be retrieved at a time so there is no way of knowing what all the possible options are that have been used in the other rows. To avoid creating an incomplete automatic dropdown list, no automatic dropdown is generated when ajax is being used - the dropdown options must be specified either in the dropdown tracker field definition or in the tsfilter parameter setting.

I have added documentation to PluginTackerlist to explain.

Workaround

Two ways to generate the dropdown list when using ajax (server=y):

  • Use tracker field type "dropdown" and specify dropdown options in the field definition
  • Specify dropdown options in the tsfilters parameter

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
