List Manager Forum

link an item in the list

User anonymous 2011-10-18 12:59:54

Dear sir/madam

I was wondering is there a way of linking an item in the list to an article, image or pdf?

So what I would like is the ability to search the database (which is believe your list manager already does) and then click on the item found in the list to look at the actual document. Is this possible?

User anonymous 2011-10-18 13:05:27

I tried to display the defined list with another tool. So I searched within all tables of the database, but I could not find tables of List Manager.
Are you saving all values of all defined lists in only one table and all definitions of all tables in a second one?

Frontend data editor uses correctly a german "JA,NEIN" as boolean.
But if you open these records in the backend, then the german translation does not work.
So the backend editor form does not recognize the JA/NEIN values and shows English "YES/NO".
Fatal is, that backend even shows "YES" in spite of the german "NEIN" (which means the opposite) and saves the "YES" !

Is it possible to include also (little) pictures in a table of list manager?

I was looking into the List Manager component and it looks like it might be a right choice for me. But I have one question: is there any practical limit for number of records stored in one list?

User anonymous 2011-10-18 13:20:55

Hi support

I have some problems with List Manager (running on my Joomla 1.7
I can easily install and configure the component. But after that
problems start.

1. When i chose the component menu I see a pop up with " 0: "
When I close the pop up, I can press "Add" and "Save". After that I
the pop up again. And nothing is stored.

On the backend I see the following error, when I press "Data":

"Notice: Undefined variable: i in

on line 49
Notice: Undefined variable: row in
on line 50"

Can You guide me to a solution?

I just bought List Manager and I was wondering if there's a way to add textarea to the listfield types, or e.g. change e.g. the list field 'User' to textarea.

Now you can add an inputbox and the length, I wish to add textarea with cols and rows. Maybe its possible just to change the inputbox and make it a textarea. Then if you need to add a text line, you could set the options to cols=45 and rows=1.

Is this possible at all?

User anonymous 2011-10-18 20:30:21

I did not know why, but the calculator only works in position "left"
or "right", but not in "user2" or "user3", from - JT014

User anonymous 2011-10-18 20:31:22


Can I just ask, are you able to add 'if' 'elseif' 'and' and 'or' commands into the php code? I know you can normally, but have tried within the calculator and it doesn't seem to like it?

Also, can you use the value of 2 columns matching input to determine an end value in the matrix?

Kind Regards

User anonymous 2011-10-18 20:32:43


I purchased your calcbuilder a couple of days ago, and I'm just struggling a little...

I'm not really a php programmer, and could use some guidance.

I've set up the calculator, but there is a variable that needs to be pulled from a non output matrix.

When the code calculates the $factor I need it to look up from the matrix the $factorB value of that variable and use it in a later calculation.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I recently purchased your very nice program Calcbuilder and I am just about to write an application. I would like to change the "Calculate" – Button and the Alert window ( Some values are incorrect) in German. Where can I change these parameters? Is it possible to integrate a second button "Reset” to reset input fields.

Many thanks for help!

Thank you,

Works brilliant, thanks alot, but I do have some questions:

I need to have one initial form. I am using RSForms to process that. Is there any way I can pass those variables to the calcbuilder form, or perhaps the calc form variables to RSForms?

Thanks for your help!

Hello medam, sir,,

I have installed calc builder en started with the variables etc.

Now I am stuck at the matrix. We want to have only one result at the end of our flowscedule and at the end of the calculator.

Can you help us with this?

I have an the excel file with the data flow.

Perhaps it’s possible to skip the rest of the questions when people click on first option. We can’t help them.

Is it possible that the next question appears when they made a choice at the first question?

Hoping for your reaction.

Hello Moonsoft Team,

yesterday I bought Calc Builder from you and started using it. It looks very powerful, but I did run into one problem with it. Our generated table is rather wide and in the generated pdf file it is not formatted correctly. I attached the calculator I created and the generated pdf to this letter so that you can see it youself. Can this problem be fixed somehow? I guess working with formatting in pdf is rather difficult. For us quite acceptable solution to this problem would be to make this functionality of generating pdf, xls and sending emails optional. That is to introduce to the back-end a switcher for turning this functionality on and off. I guess it is not too difficult to implement. Then we would just switched this functionality off. Can it be done somehow?

Thank you for your assistance,

User anonymous 2011-10-18 20:47:06

Hello Moonsoft Team,

User anonymous 2011-10-18 21:45:29


You can write me how to change that by introducing the data you could use a comma?

When you enter a data from a comma, eg 5,40 * 5,30 the result is different than when I enter 5.40 * 5.30.

In my commonly used commas.

*Choice A**:* *Animal* *or** Vegetable*
*Choice B*: *Animal_Cat* *or* *Animal_Dog*
*Choice C*: *Vegetable_Tomato* *or **Vegetable_Apple*

If purchased the Calc builder.
It is a very nice program exactly what i was looking for.

I got one question.
When i want to work with numbers with decimals (for example 1.5) it works fine.
however it pretty common that people uses 1,5.

Then the program can't calculate it.

Is there a work around for this?
Maybe something in PHP were i can convert it to 1.5 so the program can calculate with the number?

thank you in advance.

Before purchasing, I checked the other posts about this, and even tried a link on your demo and it worked until I tried to place the kind of link I need in the text field and it's not seeming to work.

Here's the affiliate link like I'm going to need to place in every listing.

a target="_blank" href="">Trance Sitar

Is it too long? For some reason it's not working on my site and you have a limit placed in that field on your demo.

And the down limit and up limit fields won't accept values so I can't try to make them longer.

Your extension is unusable to me unless I can add these links to my list.

Hallo everyone.

I have just encountered an interesting problem in my calculations... I need to round up numbers sometimes normally (1.1 -> 1; 1.5 -> 2) and sometimes I need to force rounding down (1.9 -> 1) sometimes up (1.1 -> 2). Why? Because when the result of 2.9 business cards to be printed together on one A4 paper means that there will only be 2 of them usable.

While unable of any advanced PHP coding I have seemingly solved it via this formula:

// Let's have the input number $num rounded normally

// Let's substract the rounded value from the input one

// Let's force $num to be rounded up everytime
// If the result is biger then 0, add 1 to the rounded number
if ($subst > 0) $num_round_up=$num_round+1;
else $num_round_up=$num_round;

// Let's force $num to be rounded down everytime
// if the result is bellow 0, substract 1 from initial rounded number
if ($subst < 0) $num_round_down=$num_round-1;
else $num_round_down=$num_round;

This works quite well with any bumber up to 999... but, above thousand it's messed up thanks to the fact, that the initial rounded number features "," divider - 1,000 and it's broking any other math processes.

Please, could you recommend any other reliable solution for rounding the resulting number up and down while letting it be pur number in the end?

I'm looking to build a salary calculation tool based on some research we have had done. This involves...

A form with a series of questions

Each question has a 'mark' or score

The scores are added together to give total out of 110

This total is then used to calculate the salary. Our data includes three data points an upper, lower and median salary. We would output these three values from the mark.

Am I looking at the right component to do this?

Thanks for your help/input

Hi. I'm no php coder so some of this may seem really noob. I am trying to build a calculator that has 2 input fields.

Field 1: input number
Field 2: input number (percentage) but has a starting default number (6%) that can be changed
Calculation: Field 1 multiplied by Field 2 (percentage), dvided by 2 then multiplied by 20% = answer

Can u give sample code I can start working off of? I need to create a variety of these that use simular formulas.

I just updated my Joomla from 1.7 to 2.5 and hoped that this extension would work in 2.5 like almost all other 1.7-extensions. It seems though that it has problems with views (like Jevents had) or something else because I have white screen when I try to view the component from frontend. Or is it just me doing something wrong? Backend works fine though. I hope you're working currently with new version because this extension looks like a perfect piece to my puzzle. ;)

Hi everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank you for the good product.
I am not an expert in php, so I have been trying to create a simple calculator using your "Business cards" template. I still can not find a way to round up numbers, even tried the solution described in a previous post here.

Here is my code:
//base price



if ($language=='NL') $base=16.00;
if ($type=='E') $base=$base*1.5;
if ($pages>30) $base=$base*0.97;
if ($pages>50) $base=$base*0.93;
if ($pages>100) $base=$base*0.90;


The exit lay-out:

Number of pages ##pages##
Price per unit ##base##
Total price ##var1##

As I said, I took as a base the Business cards template and modified to my needs.
The calculator will have to calculate the price for translation services from one language to another. So, the normal price is 13, if from NL: 16. As you can see on the code, there is also discount depending on the number of pages.
So, I would like to have the 'base' (price per unit) and the '$var1' displayed with 2 numbers after the comma.
I would even go even deeper and put an 'if', so the discount is displayed on a separate row below the number of pages and the price per unit only the cases when a discount applies and then the total. But I suppose it's too far for my php knowledge :-)

Second issue that I experienced is the display of the calculator within an article. It does not include the main menu on the left. I am using the standard Beez5 template from Joomla and I tried everything, but I could not get the menu displayed on the article with the calculator. Strangely enough, I have the same issue with the Xmap.

I do realise that it might not be part of your support tasks to help anyone with the php codes etc., but I would really appreciate if you could help me with the above issues!

Many thanks in advance8

Don't know if this is possible. On the list out put the text in the 'Text Area' box loses it's format when saved.

For example I input it like this

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3

But it comes out on the saved page like this

Line 1 Line 2 Line 3

It's as if the carriage return is being ignored. Is there a way to retain it's format?

Also is it possible to change the date output format? It reads 2012-04-26 I would like it to read 26-4-2012.

And lastly (sorry) under the basic options there is an option to order the output by the column name. I tried it by date and it works but it orders it by the oldest date first. I need it by newest date first.

Thanks :)

Why is there no tutorial or documentation showing different code? The downloading examples does not show me to much. This app is very difficult to use. The code portion needs to be drop down as well such as multiply this to that. I am trying to do this, Where the agent can input his policy #'s for the month in different lines of business and input Avg premium which would already be set but can be changed. And it would calculate years of commissions from 1-5 real easy. I understand I can create field for each cell.

For example lets say the agent inputs $500 for average auto premium and he sells 10 policies.

I need (num1 500)*10%= 50 (num2 10)*50= 500 500*80%=400 400 new business commissons

then After 1 year (num2 10)*50*2 = 1000*60%= 600

So it would look like this

avg. premium: $500 # of polices: 10
New Business Commissions = $400 /month
After 1 Year = $1000 /month
2nd yr. ect..
3rd yr ect..


Business: Avg Premium: Comm Comm # month:Income/mo:
Auto $500 10% $50 30 $1,500
Homeowners $800 14% $112 5 $560
Umbrella $250 15% $38 0 $0
Life - $500 40% $200 0 $0
Life - $0 50% $0 $0

Sm Business $2,500 15% $375 2 $750
Work Comp $0 15% $0 $0
Comm Auto $0 10% $0 $0
Total Renew 37 $1,686
Total 1st Year 101 $3,686 ---This calculates new business and renewals---

After 2nd Year

whats wrong here


the only two variable fields are p1 and num1 im trying to have all the math done on the back end and display results when i try this it says something is incorrect.


Moonsoft support 2012-04-27 15:27:57

Ok I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I have been working on this for awhile and it is getting annoying. There is NO preview button so I have to keep going back into the website to view if its working.

Variable ap1 is number default at 500
Variable nb1 is number default is 10% or .1
Variable num1 is number NO default




This results in some values are incorrect??

Moonsoft support 2012-04-27 16:45:56

Even when I try to copy the simple calculator into another calc. it gives me the some values are incorrect. It looks like the same exact calender the php code is the same I copied and pasted it and same as the layout. Yet the simple calender works and the new one gives the error. I have no idea what the deal is. Thinking I will take a refund here real soon.

Moonsoft support 2012-04-27 22:07:01

Ok I got the value error to go away now I need this to calculate three things commissions for years 1-3 and display like this

New Business Commissions $100
Monthly Commissions @1yr $300
Monthly Commissions @2yr ect.
Monthly Commissions @3yr ect.

I think the top is correct the way it calculates results is messed up. Heres the code



/*New Business Commissions*/

/*Monthly Commissions @1yr*/

/*Monthly Commissions @2yr*/

is it possible to change the text area field (after clicking the 'Add' button) customized width and height? At this moment a visitor needs to drag the area to have a good look at the words that are typed. In my case I want a text area field width from 500px an 50px height.

Kind Regards,

cahnged templates a few time but always end up with the screen show the add a record button

The search works and when you click on the pencil edit you can edit but the area where the records should be just has the grey arrow block with no text showing., view source reveals the page is not populated,

I am having a strange issue with the "send an email" feature and I am uncertain what is causing it. After the formula is calculated the send an email box pops up and when i enter an email address and click send a random error appears.

Sometimes the error is just three numbers like; 901, 121, etc and sometimes its the sum of the form. I does not say email sent or anything like that - but heres the storage in it all, the email does get sent.

Here is the code that I am using for cubic weight calculator, figured I add this just in case something was wrong here:

if ($actual > $cubic)
echo ($sum=$actual);
echo ($sum);

I bought LM a few days ago and initially had problem installing. After installing, I found the setup rather easy. But when I tried to set up the front end to view, it came out blank.

I am using Joomla 1.5.15 and I realized that there have been some postings on the same issue for other Joomla version.

I am not sure if the issues are the same but I did expect everything to be easy to use as I read the initial reviews and thought so.....I guess I was wrong.

Hope someone can assist as the idea behind this is really good but unfortunately, for me, the error is a major one since it cannot even be visible in the front end.

Dear Support,

Thanks for this component. I installed it on my site and its working well. However, I am facing a problem with internet explorer whenever I try to save it says "Some values are incorrect" and it fails to save.

I have discovered that this happens only with internet explorer. I have also found that it happens only when I have a field with type "user"

Could you kindly assist me in making this work with internet explorer too

Hi, i bought your calculator component yesterday and i am trying to make it work BUT it seems even with a small calculation like your demo 2 numbers sum, the calculator button does not do anything.

My web site is on a localhost at the moment and i am using the rockettheme PANACEA. (rt_panacea_j15)
though i tried other tempaltes as well and again the calculation button DOES NOT work even with the default joomla template.

I have read the forum and i have seen all the similar topic's but what you recommend to them it seems is not good for my site.

I am including the header of my site so that you can see what i load. (also i have tried to include jquery using the jQuery Includer ( as it is not clear but i also tried to include that just in case it solved the problem .

I really hope you can help.

Goal: to grab the calculated total sum("total square feet"), and populating that onto another form(RSform) on another page automatically.

Step 1: My client wants his calculator to look exactly like this:$oGridControllerW&UserForm=SpaceCalculator.ascx&AppModule=ConnectPopups/SpaceCalculator&PostBack=true&WaitPage=true&Title=Space%20Calculator&WaitTitle=Processing%20Your%20Request

Step 2: He wants the total rentable square feet to calculate then automatically grab the information and shove it onto a survey on a totally different page>>> This will make it user friendly for a customer. The survey is actually an RSform, totally different software, but i'm sure the php code is the same in the background right?

i created a section and i want my guests to choose up to 5 products.
The link for my demo version:

First combo box ($cat_1) is an option list and the other 3 (cat_1_link, cat_1_link_link, cat_1_link_link_link) are linked lists.

I have 2 problems:
1)Linked list works only for the first section. When changing option list in sections 2 to 5, all the other linked lists aren't refreshed.

2) How can i calculate which option selected in each section? I am using $cat_1 for the option list to get selected item, but this doesn't work for the 3 linked lists.

I'm having an issue with this formula:

if ($actual > $cubic)

On the site I have a cost calculator that takes the Length X Width X Height - The Actual Weight - and then multiples it by the chosen Rate.

I seems to work accurately with small numbers but when I enter 100x100x100 then 250 (for actual weight) and choose 1.57 per pound on the cost the results are not accurate.

The way this calculation is supposed to work (it does with smaller numbers) is it first calculates the cubic weight LxWxH which in this case would be 1,000,000 then compares it to the Actual Weight which is 250, then chooses the larger between the Cubic weight and Actual Weight and then multiples by the Rate..which is $1.57.

When I click calculate it spits out $9.49 when it should be $9457.84 - now if I take the LxWxH and use say 20x20x20 and 250 for the actual weight and $157 for the rate it calculates correctly at $392.50

I'm not sure why it is doing this...I figured a second set of eyes might see something I'm not.

I have a directory I am using your software, listmanager, to manage. I purchased the 0.3 version and recently discovered the 1.X version. Per your instructions, I exported the directory (almost 1500 entries), uninstalled the old, installed the new, and imported the data. Unfortunately when I imported the data, nothing appears when I view the directory from the front-end. The back-end shows the data. I removed the menu, re-created the menu, and several other things; but could not get the directory to appear. I opted to create a second directory with the same layout, which has 11 fields/columns. As I was manually entering the records, I noticed the directory was showing the records on the front end. I attempted another re-import. I was refreshing the directory on the front-end while the data was being imported and I could see the listings grow. When the import finished, the directory no longer showed on the front end. I began deleting 20 rows from the back-end. I deleted about 60 rows and noticed the directory appeared on the front-end. I began manually entering the deleted 60. I think I manually entered about 30, refreshed the front end, and the directory no longer appears. I went back to the back-end and deleted 40 rows and the directory has re-appeared. The data I am entering is nothing unique--i.e. name, street, city, state, zip, country, phone, E-Mail, web, and fax. The only thing I considered was a limit of your software.

Any help would be appreciated.

as we have received during last days several questions about slider
integration with fields of calcbuilder, here you have instructions to
make a third party js library work together with number or text fields
(many thanks to Keith for sharing the final solution).
The library can be found here:

You should download the slider control and upload/include the script
libraries and styles (codebase folder), adding them to your template and
setting the right paths, insert inside a script tag:


And import the following js files:


Also include the stylesheet:


Then use the 'Javascript events' tabs at calcbuilder to link the fields.
It executes on onload event, so all fields are already present at the page.
To identify each input field, please check the 'fields and code'
section, to find out the ID number of the field you want to link. The
html id of each field would be


where 'x' is the ID number. Then use that identifier to link the slider,
for ex, a text field with ID=8 :

var sld1 = new dhtmlxSlider("fld_wrapper_8", {
skin: "dhx_skyblue",

Hope this helps, regards

I want a visitor to be able to enter a value (no decimal) - No problem create a field

I then want to take that value and divide it by a constant (85,000) = A

I then want to round the result up to the next whole number (I would add .99 and then drop anything after the decimal point) = B

.lm_trblack {
.lm_trwhite {

instead of staying on the top of the joomla backend menu (near visitor number, admin, link to view site etc),
when i enter calcbuilder, it starts floating in a set length below the top.
I believe it has something to do with the .modal class of your css style.

I have a table of rows, one column is specified as a sort column. When I am showing a partial number of rows (say 20) and use the sort up/down arrows, when I select a first-to-last sort it shows no rows.

It works fine when I select last-to-first.

I am trying to get a simple calculator working on a site just updated to Joomla 2.5.9. I exported the calculator from Joomla 1.5 and it was working fine, but since the upgrade to Joomla 2.5 it no longer works (I purchased the updated component for Joomla 2.5 and installed it, then imported the calculator from Joomla 1.5).

I have tried importing your example calculators, but none of them work either, so I cannot see what is wrong. The only error message that I can find in my Firefox browser is "TypeError: $(...).addEvent is not a function
Source File:
Line: 561"

You can see the error if you go to, but nothing happens when you click the calculate button.

Please help urgently.

I have created a list which allows users to enter data.


However, the pop-up modal entry form for new records on the front end (or in-page form) shows truncated entry fields which only show 2 or 3 characters.

This doesn't allow enough space to enter data. Data can be entered and it will show up in the front end.

All of the field lengths are set to 20 in the List Fields section of the back-end.

It would be great if you enabled forum users to upload a JPG or PNG so you could see.

This might be a wishlist item.

My list includes an email field in it. Currently, ListManager displays this email field in the clear.

Would it be possible instead to display this as a cloaked link to prevent spamming? Or, to use a contact form with a captcha?

Joomla does this with email fields by default.

I don't want to make my users have to enter HTML code to encode their email (they will have no idea how to do that).

This obviously take the two hours divides it by 8 (number of hours in working day) and times it by the salary.

Layout is currently:


Sum =

What I want to do is allow the calculator to display an hours1+hours2 sum after the two fields then I want to also introduce another sum display to work out the cost per day (depending on the salary)

So the display would be:

Hours1 (field)
Hours1 (field)

sum display (1+2) =

Salary (field)

Sum display per day =
Sum display per year =

As the topic says I'm trying to get it to hide/show tabs depending on whether a field type yes/no or multiple-option is checked.

First off the tabs is working fine.
The reason I'm using tabs is that in the end, there will be many fields in my calculations. So it's simply to make it more userfriendly and dont show fields that the current user dont need.

The calculations is for house renovations and energysavings.
The idea of ​​it is to let the user choose what to calculate.
For example:
New windows: Yes/No
New roof: Yes/No

If "New roof" is checked a new tab is added or shown.
And If "New windows" is checked a new tab is added or shown.

And of course in the end we can add it all up.

Is it possible to do something like what im describing?

I have an existing sql database that was created with a similar program as List Manager. It is a simple sql database. I've tried the copy * paste a CSV version, and the SQL - well, " SQL Query to load " is another language for me. The "Help" icon just says "You can use joomla table prefix (#__) in query" - whatever that means.

Is there a way I can import the existing SQL dbase, without having to re-do the whole dbase in to List Manager?

Is there a quick way to add a record count to my list?

Moonsoft support 2013-09-24 18:26:04


Today my client called to tell me that his website did not display one of its list properly, i.e the list was truncated to 4 lines although it counted twenty-some records.

So I checked, found the records evaporated (probably my client mistake but I can't say for sure), and decided to reinstall a recent backup... but before that I exported the other lists in CSV to be sure I won't lose any records my clients had created since the backup.
After that, things went haywire :
- No lists are displayed anymore (loading, and nothing)
- When I check the records in the backend, some of the colums are empty (multiple value fields and option lists) but the value do appear if I export the lists inCSV.
- Values in Multi-value types get repeated
- When I export in CSV I can hardly use the resulting tables : I have HTML fields that get some data with ";" (usually blanks  ) that mess my resulting tables up.
- But in interestingly, I can create records from the front-end which get displayed but only if I search for them (If I search for other records I get nothing)

You can check the site here (the list is at the bottom) :
You can type 'test' in the search box to see the record I entered in front end.
I already tried to disable my other jQuery scripts but to no avail.

I can give you backend access, just mail me.

After results are generated, there is an option to send an email. After entering an email address and clicking send (the envelope button) a styled dialog box is generated. I assume that it is generated by JavaScript.

The issue is that the box has no text, so in some templates it's collapsed, and it has a close "X" button, a resize handle, a title bar, etc. Also it's z-order makes it appear under other elements.

Is there a way that we can use a system "OK" modal dialog box, such as is generated when an invalid email address is entered? For example, in the text field it could say "Email sent" with an OK button. Alternatively, a brief message could be inserted under the email address field, similar to how validation error messages appear.

I am trying to generate a form to add or edit the list items. I have used the form generator to do this so the field names are correct. Instead of getting the entry boxes I get the fieldname surrounded by ## at both ends. The problem is the same for the Add function or the edit function where the fields are not loaded. This is the last problem to fix before going live with the new feature. This product has helped me very much and thank you for your support.
As you know I have made some changes to your code but not in this area.
Further investigation shows that the fields work in the form for the FULL list but do not work on the view. The generation was exactly the same. Should the update work for views?

- I used the Form layout to enter Pre-form text, which works fine, except i would still like the PDF to work.

- PDF does not seem to make a proper PDF. Both my Adobe and 3rd party readers will not read the file. I receive

I have a working calculator in which I have multiple 'yes/no' input fields. If the input field is 'yes' the answer is calculated, otherwise the default is "" allowing the next chosen field to be right under it, like a list.

This works fine when I receive the results in the modal window, however when I export it to PDF there are spaces created in-between the headings/results and I have not been able to remove them. The number of spaces do not correlate to the number of "" in between the fields. Some don't have spaces some do. The output code is identical so I don't see any problems there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Project: Multiple dealers from the frontend adding records. They need to be able to add, edit and delete their own records, but not even see other dealer's records. The admin will need to see all, and I can do a "Special" menu item for that to an unrestricted list (that's what I seem to read anyway).

1. I want to populate a field called "Dealer" with the name from the Joomla USERS database. I know that I do that with an SQL query which, I believe, should be SELECT ID,name FROM #___users - please let me know if that's correct. The problem is, when I click ADD an SQL query, the pop up is 1/2 off the screen at the top so I cannot see my entry. This is not the only place I discovered this. Seems like the code centers the box left to right but places the top of the box at the absolute top of the screen, but under the browser menus. It's like the Z height is wrong. It should be centered/centered anyway. See image at 4.jpg. (Please allow posting of images in the forum - this is basic functionality!)

2. I read about a parameter called "Only User Records". Can't find this to save myself - where is it? - NEVERMIND - FOUND IT UNDER THE MENU ITEM FOR LM - WAS EXPECTING IT IN LM ITSELF.

3. The splash page when selecting List Manager from the components menu. Please remove - just plain annoying and adds nothing to the user experience - we already know we're going there. Why add another click to the process?

4. My project will only have 2 pages. A front page which will be a basic welcome page for dealers and anyone else who strays onto the site with a login. The other page will be LM and it's functions. On the main page I want to have the list filter module showing. However, I had it selected for all menus originally, so it also appeared on the front page. The main LM component, obviously, did not appear on the front page. Trying to navigate to the front page in this setup gave the following error:

Warning: require_once(/home/unavaila/public_html/access/modules/mod_listmanagerfilterDShelper.php) : failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/unavaila/public_html/access/modules/mod_listmanagerfilter/mod_listmanagerfilter.php on line 17

Fatal error: require_once() : Failed opening required '/home/unavaila/public_html/access/modules/mod_listmanagerfilterDShelper.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/unavaila/public_html/access/modules/mod_listmanagerfilter/mod_listmanagerfilter.php on line 17

5. On the add an entry form it's justification and layout are kind of strange. I have set up my form thus:

Date: ##date##
Dealer: ##dealer##
Client: ##client##
Address: ##address##
City: ##city##
State: ##state##
Country: ##country##
Email: ##email##
Phone: ##phone##
ID: ##id##

but 5.jpg shows how it appears. Labels right justified and as 2 lines, not inline, then ID shoved over to the right. It's less of an issue for this project as it's not for the general public, but I would like it to behave if I use it on a more public setting.

6. Please change your forum to a more user useful/friendly package. No WYSWYG editor, file attachment, search, My topics, etc is very behind the times. Thanks.

7. Adding options/selectable items. Currently this must be done 1 at a time. I added just the states - tedious! There should be a bulk way of doing this - either import from a CSV or being able to drop in a whole list of options at once. One at a time is slow.

8. If you use the search box above the record table or the LM filter module, then select export to Excel (Filtered) that works fine. If you try Export to PDF (Filtered) you get a page "500 - View not found : serverpages, pdf, listmanagerView"

9. If you click the filters icon in the main records box, the column names disappear and you're left with empty boxes to type in. I don't mind the typing but I think the column headings should stay. ( 6.jpg)

Please find below our comments about some questions received:

'Ratings – The Star rating function is an important feature for the data that I am displaying. Is it possible to turn off the ability of a web-user from changing the star rating(in list view)- and to still have the stars appear in the list/table as a filterable column? My intension is to rate each line myself within the csv & to publish the list/table with fixed ratings. Can the javascript code be modified to stop users from posting a star rating? If so, are you able to make changes to the code & provide the modified file?'

In fact, it is intended to be configurable using acl table, marking the ratings as non-editable fields, but we checked its not working properly for all cases. Please download again latest version and upgrade, and you should see this already solved.

'I have added weblinks into the csv file. This has been done successfully & is displayed in the table successfully, however the impact is that editing the data in the backend does not operate. Are you aware of this? Is there a way of inserting weblinks without affecting editing? If not, then will you be considering to improve List manager in the future?
Soon I will also try and add references to images into the data, but expect that this will cause the same problems with editing data as described in item 2 above. Do you have any comments on this?'

You should be able to edit data loaded from csv same way as it was manually stored, please double check the destination column has the type 'html' in order content can be shown inside html editor to be editable afterwards.

Thanks, regards

When the Ratings are disabled from users in list view ....
1. And the triangle icons are activated to sort the column, the stars do not sort in order correctly.
2. And the filter module is used to say select filter 1-2 stars, all data entries in the table disappear, only the column headings remain behind.

Also, is it possible in the backend to:
A) Set' the ratings. Force the rating to a set value, say 3/5 stars in the managed data?
B) Reset the ratings. Force the rating to zero

I have set a first option without any value with the name "--- Select ---", but when I look into the generated code, there is still a value associated with this option but the "mv_option" is empty, so I guess that the script should look first if the mv_option has a value, and if not, display an error message, but it doesn't seems to be working that way. Do I have to write an extra script in the JavaScript section? If so, could you give me the code to write?

- using List Manager V2.0.1, Joomla! 3.2.3, PHP v5.3.27
- A list with an "Option List" Type field: "Builder", with a SQL Action defined: "SELECT BuilderNumber,BuilderName FROM Builders"
- Builders structure is:
BuilderNumber - int(11)
BuilderName - text

Adding a record, using the front-end "List Manager Form", correctly stores the builder number for the builder name selected in the drop-down list.

Using the back-end "Load Data from CSV", I specify a valid BuilderNumber but the value does not get written to the record - verified via phpMyAdmin. Changing the Type of the "Builder" field to Number, then CSV loading with the same record, of course, does save the valid BuilderNumber value. Then after changing the "Builder" field Type back to SQL Action, the correct buildername shows up in the back-end "List Data" view and the front-end "List Manager" view.

How do I get "Load Data from CSV" to work? I can do my initial load of 3000 records toggling the SQL Action Number type attribute but that is not viable for my client (or other List Manager customers!)

Should I be worried about the 'Show All' option when using a list of 1000's of rows?

I appreciate the importance of letting the user select how many records to show.... but I'm worried about the site performance effect of them showing everything with that 'show all' button (or yes, by typing 1000000 too)

Is that a genuine concern? If so do you think it makes sense to switch to a more basic drop down list of say 10,25,50,100 kind of thing?.... or is there I way I can easily HIDE / DEACTIVATE those options on my site? (I see for example on the back-end you can enable / disable many of the export options - but not these display options... unless I've missed it somewhere. I still want to show the pagination and the search feature)

I have a text field which gets populated with HTML links like... Event Title

When I try and use this field in the filters using SELECT list option... The select list looks great (so with my example above it shows 'Event Title' as a select option) BUT when you apply the filters it doesn't actually recognise any data.

My guess is the system is converting the HTML to Event Title in the filter and then doing a precise search for that on the underlying data - which means it isn't picking up the data which starts with the hyperlink.

I have also tried changing it to a HTML Editor type field - but seem to be getting same result.

Question from a new starter!..

I LOVE the look of the filter module and much prefer it to the standard filters on the List Manager views... so I'm hoping to use the module on all my ListManager pages and deactivate the default component filter.

Have I understood it right though - unless you select a specific List Manager table in the module settings the filter won't show up.... I was hoping that it would work out what page it was set to show on and simply work based on the filter settings of that page....

Have I understood that right? If so, is it possible to develop the module to be 'intelligent' to whatever List Manager page it is set to show on?

A little bug I think.... I'm using the filter module and when it uses a text field, it shows the 'Name' of the field for the placeholder text and not the 'Placeholder' of the field. Hope that makes sense!

If above isn't clear, here's some more detail:

1. I create a Text Field. Called it 'Name' which is the title I want at the top of my list columns.... and put 'Participant Name' in the placeholder field.

2. Then I set that Field to be a filter option in the Filter module.

3. Front-end it appears with 'Name' as the placeholder text and not 'Participant Name' (I tested this by changing the 'Name' to something else and then that is what appears as the placeholder text.... so it seems to be pulling it's placeholder content from the name element of the field, and not the placeholder element of the field.

I use a RocketTheme template on Joomla 3.2 and am trying to add module styling that they have in their CSS: "nomarginall nopaddingtop nopaddingbottom" - It works fine in modules using with Module Class Suffix - but doesn't seem to have any affect using the 'Root Class' provided in LM Filter Module.

Is there a reason why the 'Module Class Suffix' option isn't available on the LM module?

Unless I'm doing something silly I think there's a bug here:

I have a OPTION LIST field which has months of the year.. Name and Value of each option are both Jan, Feb, Mar etc.

In my main list the field is set to be not visible.

Then I create a VIEW of the list and everything works fine with all the data showing at the front-end as I'd expect.

BUT if I then edit the VIEW as I want to and set the Data Filter to 'Contains Jan' or 'Equals Jan' or 'Starts with Jan' then no data gets returned on the front-end screen.

I've tried lower case j but same problem - just no results coming back when I activate that filter????

Can you replicate that issue?

is it possible to create a view that shows a list with only future dates in it. Of course I hav a list with a date field.
I read something in another thread with the SQL query NOW() but I could not figure out how this works and where I have to put the query.

Thank you in advance for your advice.

I have 2 questions:

1) is it possible to send me a copy (BCC) of the email that a user of my calculator sends to himself?
2) is it possible to remove the form on the page where you show the results?

Whenever I add a new item to my listing I get this error message.
Notice: Undefined variable: field in /volume1/web/joomla/administrator/components/com_listmanager/models/listing.php on line 874

I have looked at the code which is below but I can not work out what to do to correct, any ideas? I can still add items though.

I currently have a contact database which I am converting into list manager as it's on old php code.

One feature I use at the moment is ezPdf which I am able to output to it addresses of certain contacts in a label format.

I was wondering if it is possible to alter the layout output from the export PDF? Rather than lines so I can print on label paper. Where would the php code be to alter this?

I bought Calc builder and wanted to install it in Joomla, but didn't work. It seemed that I first had to unzip the zip file. In this zip file there are to new zip files: one for the component and one for the module. And there are two other files.
Question: what do I have to do now to get it all working in Joomla? Do I have to install both component and module, and what to do with the other two files?
I tried to install the component, but got an error message.
Please help me, I cannot find any manual about this part and I really want to use this component in my website.

I created a list with a "multiple option (check)" field.
When I add a filter "checkbox multiple" it works perfectly, entries are displayed when I select one of the filter entries. But when I use a "select" filter I only get entries which have only the selected option.

the multiple option (check) is weekdays mo, tu, we, thu, fr, sat, su
When using "checkbox multiple" filter and selecting mo I get the stores opened on mo, tu, we
When using the "select" filter and selecting mo I get only stores which are opened ONLY on mo, if they are for example mo and sat, they are not diaplayed.

Is there anything I can do about that?

I want to extract a price value from a matrix (imported from a csv file).
There are two list options: one to choose the width and one to choose the height.
When both are chosen, click the Calculate button to get the price. This price is already in the matrix, so it's not a real calculation, the price is already there in the matrix.
The variable for the width is called 'breedte', for the height it is 'hoogte'.
The name of the matrix is 'duoprice'.
The code I use to get the right price is: $result=.
This doesnot work, for there is no result.

Question is this: how can I make it work, what code do I have to use or what else is wrong in my calculator?
The (not) working calculator can be found here:



Moonsoft support 2014-05-16 15:19:46

Dear Support!

I would like to know if there is a solution to overtake the calculated price from one form to another form - the final calculated price can be the initial price for the second form.

This would be a very good option for me.

Thank you for your help.

Is there a way I can configure a separator? I'd like to have either a comma or a br-tag as a separator.

We need to apply a number format to the calculator in the cost table. This is the format we want to follow:


I saw an old post where you showed someone how to do it in PHP (which we don't want to do since our calc is now quite complicated) - but with the new version you have a section on number format for decimal and '000' spacing - why is there no button to turn this on?

Please help!

I'm currently experimenting with the calcbluider for VM, but in the documentation I found the part to insert the calculator inside an existing VM product where I have to (install &) enable the plugin called; VM Customer - Calculator, but I'm unable to find it in the list with plugins so I decided to reintall this custom Plugins.

But when I tried to install the file it's missing the XML file to install.

So my question is; is there another way to enable this plugin.

I am trying to build a payment calculator. The drop down list determines the length and the interest rate is a text box. I can get it to calculate properly for the first item in the dropdown but when something else is selected the length stays the same.

I use an if/elseif statement to the calculation and it appears that when the calculate button is pressed a second time, the coding does not assign which dropdown item is selected.

Hope this makes sense and that someone can offer me some insight.

Moonsoft support 2014-07-17 10:24:21

just installed the component !
Just what I needed ! Intuitive, complete, perfect !!
However, I have a little problem with the header main display, wuth the search and navigation toolbar

All the buttons are not aligned on the same line !
I think it's because of the width of the content area of my Template but that doesn't look very nice.

How can I reduce the spaces between the different Tools to get them aligned on a less than 850px width !
I found it's in mod_listmanager/tmpl/tools.php file but nothing I tried works : I just need to reduce spaces between the different Tools.

A link to a sample :
(in which I'd lke to reduce the space between the search button and the "show" N° items AND align the lines)

If anyone has an idea !?

I've got a strange difference in the calculations.

Depending on the selected measurement (Deukformaat) each value entered in the fields below are given a certain response.

The fields I've programmed are working perfectly.
Except for the first one (Motorkap)
When the value is not entered and remains 0
The result should be 0 as well.

Other fields are responding accordingly.

Below the code i'm using for the fields.

Hi, I have three calculators that I set up in version 2.0.0 and have just downloaded the latest version 2.2.5.

Hello there,

I reused the code from your demo example#2 (subscribe form) and added matrix values to it. It worked fine, but i don’t need multi options so I changed checkboxes to radio buttons at fields configuration and js.
changed two lines from:
jQuery('#hobbies input...
jQuery('#hobbies input)...

Now I have two problems here:
1. I can’t get the values from matrix to calculate the result (works fine with checkboxes thou). Just wondering what I have to add/change in js tab.
2. I don’t see buttons (or checkboxes before) so I have to manually change from display:none to display: block all the time to see them. I can’t find any css file that might be responsible for that, how to make that buttons to appear?

Thank you,

Moonsoft support 2014-08-07 18:45:58


I would like to know two things about your component, is it possible to search in some columns, and the second thing I'd like to know if it is possible in the search field you enter the exact word around and does a few letters, obviously not taking into account accents and capital letters or dashes.

I guess the second answer to the second question is that it is not feasible default.
So my third question is, is that you could develop such options and how rates.

I have created a hidden block in the form of a table that contains five fields of type "option list"(1), "option list"(2), "number", "result inline"(1), "result inline(2)."
Also set the price matrix for the fields "option list", "option list". The result of this combination is displayed in the "result inline(1)."
This table works if it contains only one such line calculated.

Perhaps the visitor will want to calculate the price for just two (or more) combinations "option list"(1) - "option list"(2).

But when I add in this table have 2-3 lines with the same fields, the table will not work.

Also, the table does not work if I add these lines via the "section".

How to make a table to work with several of these lines?

is there an example we can download for your inline results calculation?

That is basically what I am after - except I want to add an additional description field after the Product name. Is this easy to do?

I am a little confused as to how to build the entire form from scratch, so if I could start with your inline form template that would be ideal for me and help me better understand how it all works.

// check to show divs depends on elem selected
if (elemSelected=='opt1') {
if (elemSelected=='opt2') {


How do I insert additional variables here? Let say I have additional field-variable opt3, opt4, etc.

I have tried to insert another field-variable "opt3" this way:

// hide divs

var elemSelected=CB(this).find('option:selected').attr('mv_option');
// check to show divs depends on elem selected
if (elemSelected=='opt1') {
if (elemSelected=='opt2') {
if (elemSelected=='opt1') {

But it does not seem to work. Please help, since i would like to make more fields working this way.

Dear Team,
My Custormer whats that the registred user have more possiblities and the public one not. That means registered user can add and edit some fields more.
But as I configured the ACL in this way, that the registred user can edit every field and the public one not and test it, I find out that the public one can edit by add the record as well ? In the manual "Quick Guide" is deschribed that these not possible ? I saw this in the modul sources helper.php and form.php as well.
Is it generally possible to prohibit user or better groups to edit by adding a record ? Prohibition by editing is possible over ACL. Could you provide a solution for this issue, it is important for my customer. Thank you in advance.

Name of owner (the thesaurus it belongs)

Smell description
Sight description
(other senses description)

example of use

And that's pretty much all that I need to display for each entry.

=> Example: if the customer is from EU and outside from my country and has VAT code, then we don't need to add local tax. So how to use this "if" / "else" commands?

Custom Calculator installed and working - thanks heaps to 'Moonsoft' people!!!
Have Virtuemart installed and working and can configure the Product Categories and Products.
Problem: (probably me!!!) How do I get the "Add to Shopping Cart" button to show up after a customer has determined their chosen options. Can't seem to find the Option in From Layout, Exit Layout, Code etc - As said, probably me - it MUST be there somewhere! :)

Ah , the minute I posted this, I found it!! It's in the actual Module configuration!

In Virtuemart options, "Type Calcbuilder-Virtuemart mapping": Duplicate VM Product creating a new one.
CalcBuilder generates a new goods in Virtuemart on the mask specified in the "code".
Thus, the site administrator can, if they wish, assign a different name for each new product generated by the various parameters in the code.
In such a case would be much better to the calculator by default not create new goods, if such name already exists in the database.
Otherwise, Database in a month will be exactly the same a hundred items, including SKU and name.

Calculator working, Addto Cart Button in place, Virtuemart Categories and Products set up, Calculator Code Generated within VM Options when products added.

Clicking on 'Add to Cart" at front end, heads to VM shopping cart but with the error message "Warning - Error while adding product in cart: no product ids"

Happens whether or not I use Existing or Duplicate VM Products.

If I add Products in the VM Options, code IS being generated but with automatically generated ID's. But which ID's need to sync with Virtuemart?

Can't seem to get this bit working? Am using Joomla 3 / Virtuemart 3.

I just bought this component but I am unable to import big files by using the CSV-import.
I have created a file, but when I try to import it I don't understand how it works.
I bought this component because of a client who has a file with 15.000 articles (!) which he wants to import in 1 motion. Not by copying every single rule at a time.

How can I import big files by using this component?
Do you have an example of how the file should look like?

Question 2: Where can I create a simular lay-out as you have used in the view with countries? E.g. that you can put the details in a button at the end of a row? And then, by clicking on the icon, you get a pop-up? It doesn't work with me.

Looking forward to you answers.

I am using Joomla! 3.3.6

at first let me say that this is a very nice component and its seems rather easy to use. However, I wonder if the following can be done using ListView or if this is not possible yet:

I have a "long" table with many Fields (Name+ Group fields, Adresses+contact info fields, Membership Info fields and Achievements fields). All users of a specific Usergroup should have the right to view and edit all fields.

But: I would like to have three different views of the same list using the same data table in the background:

Name+Group + Address/Contact for Address Management
Name+Group + Membership Info for Membership Management
Name+Group + Achievements for Achievement Management

Ideally I would like to have three Joomla menus where the user can pick which "view" of the list he likes to see. The only difference between the "views" is the number of columns shown, everything else is identical.

I understand that there is a scrollbar if there are many columns but I would rather only show the columns needed for the specific task, that makes it much easier for the users to interact with the table.

If this is not possible: Is there an option to get the edit/delete/... Buttons at the left of a list rather than at the right so that the user doesn´t have to scroll to the end, which is fine for small lists, bit in my case a bit awkward.

Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading.
Any help appreciated.

I have successfully setup my list along with some views.
Everything works fine except for one thing: Sorting / Sort fields.

When I Access the Configuration->Frontend Configuration form I can see the Button "Default List sort" (or in my case: "Standard Liste sortiert nach").
However, when I click the button, nothing happens. There is no blank field where I can select the sorting field.

This is strange enough, but I also observe the following behaviour in the "Frontend Configuration" tab: When I select "Show Form in Modal Box" = Yes or "Show Detail on row click" and I hit the save button it says: "List saved". When I go back to the same Dialog the two Settings are back to "No".

Somehow I have the Feeling that my LM Installation is broken. I am using the latest release (2.0.8) on Joomla 3.3.6. I had to do a Manual install as described in the Manual, after the normal install via upload didnt work.
I just reinstalled the component (unzip, upload to temp dir and Install from dir), I got a success message.

Everything else seems to work fine, except for sorting. Even when I define sorting in a view this does not Show the desired behaviour (I could describe this in more Detail but maybe this is only a symptom of the underlying Installation problem.

Any tips apreciated.

Thank you very much

I have two problems with the pdf generator:

- The pdf can only be generated once per calculation. If I want to regenerate a pdf I need to click the meny item in which the calcbuilder is stored and redo all input. Is this a bug?

- The language file does not contain some useful strings. For example, setting a field to "required"
means a text displays underneath the field when not filling it in: "This field is required". I however cannot find this string in language file, (neither in the module nor the component language file). I have the same
problem with the text in the "close" button displayed in the modal window when pressing "calculate". Where are these strings defined?

Otherwise, thank you for a great extension, very powerful and helpful indeed!

Hi, I just recently purchased the List Manager module and it has been working great so far. However I have three question I hope you can help me.

1. How do I allow user to search by press enter instead of requiring them to click on the search button?

2. I enable the List Manager search plugin, but the search result only display the list that contain the data, it doesn't show the content of the list where the data is located. It would be nice if it can display a hyperlink directly to the search result page of the corresponding list that contain the data. Please let me know if it's possible.

3. I have a list of pager number, and I would like to add a html field after each record so it will pre-populate a email with the pager number already included in the sender email address. Is it possible?

I have some questions about the linked lists, I saw there are several options available:

1. Linked List with manual options
2. Linked list with sql options
3. Linked list (sql)

I have managed to get the lists depending to each other by first setting up the option list and the next group using the linked list. With the normal option list i use a variable name like group1 and the next two linked lists group1_linked1 and group1_linked1_linked2.

Now I got it managed working and all the options are changing and can get the ID name and value if using "static" options, if i connect it to the sql database I get this:

1st normal list (not sql):
var linkedvaltmp="";linkedvaltmp=new obj_LinkedValue("12","1_int","interior");

1st normal list (sql):
var linkedvaltmp="";linkedvaltmp=new obj_LinkedValue("1_int","1_int","interior");

Now my sql table has the following structure:

id, location, distance, name, nameabreviation, and value.

id is the normal id wich will autoincrement
location is a number that refers to another table and can be indoor or outdoor
distance is a name that will be used in the 2nd list depending on the 1st list
name is the name of the product
nameabreviation is the short name of the name of the product that i need to connect to the matrix
value is just a number that i use for calculating

How can i get the value inside the linkedvaltmp like:

var linkedvaltmp="";linkedvaltmp=new obj_LinkedValue("1_int_2nd","1_int_2nd","NAME")


var linkedvaltmp="";linkedvaltmp=new obj_LinkedValue("VALUE","1_int","NAME")


var linkedvaltmp="";linkedvaltmp=new obj_LinkedValue("NAMEABREVIATION","1_int_2nd","NAME")

What will be the query for sql? or do i need to add a js somewhere to control this?? It needs to connect to the matrix. The matrix rows uses the nameabreviation to indicate the values.

Sorry, the title would be "Add span inside radiobutton label", but the tag has been stripped and it seems I can't change the title.

I would like to dynamically change the label of a Radiobutton according to the selection (javascropt/jquery), so to see an intermediate result before submitting the form.
Unfortunately the generated html has the following structure:
label - input - Text to be changed - /label

Could you tell me what to change in the code so to obtain the following:
label - input - span - Text to be changed - /span - /label

In this way I could point to the correct tag inside label via jquery.

When I recall this variable inside the Before/After calculation for pdf print this is what I obtain by clicking on the pdf icon:

Firefox: an index.php page is opened, showing the correct values. But if I download the file (mpdf.pdf) then I can't open it with Acrobat Reader because "the file is not supported". In fact, by inspecting the file with a text editor I can see my html code and after few lines the %PDF-1.4% header that should be at the very beginning of the file, according to what is stated on the Adobe site.

Chrome: no file is opened.

IE: no file is opened.

You can see the demo form here:

Could you please let me know how I could solve this issue?

Thanks for the assistance

Hello !

I want to create a custom filter function.

I put the code below to components/com_listmanager/models/customserverpages_fl.php which works pretty fine this way.

So now I need to search within the same ID (column) for more than one value.
In other words I need a function which does a search for $valuecustom="xxx" or $valuecustom="yyy" or $valuecustom="zzz"

2.) What pretty ways are there to use the search value from $_GET
--> $valuecustom=$_GET;
Or do you know another easy way to put some parameters to this script?

Thanks a lot for your help!

//this means the filter is 'equal' to your value

Is there a way to add a progress bar after they hit the calculate button? I have a form with 6 image uploads and it takes about

I really like LM, especially it's simplicity. It's much better than other extensions I've used. I have a question about db tables. It appears that LM stores all the data/values for all lists in one table called _listmanager_values. On my sites, I will have many lists and some lists have many records (several thousand). I'm worried that this table is going to get very large and if the db table gets corrupted, I'll lose everything for all lists. Is it possible to choose a separate db table for each list? Not the configuration or views, but just the data/values. Or would this be a customization? Thanks.

Hello, I want to make a price calculator for my homepage. Price depends on three variables (length, width and material). Because I have four types of material, I made four matrices. Potential buyers can choose material by an option field. Variable of option field is $material. Depending on the material I want to select a price in one of the four matrices. I use the following code, but does not work: $price=$material. It does not work because the variable of the four matrices is not 'material' but 'wood', 'steel' etcetera (the type of material the customers can choose). Is it possible to make this work this way? Or is there another (simple) option? Thanks!

the menu on our site stopped working properly after the latest update.
As soon as one listman item is open, the menu makes items disappear. It seems to be a mootools - jquery conflict, but I am not sure.

The only thing I know, is when I disable Listman, the menu works perfectly fine.

Please advice?

Hi there - i have just installed the component for the first time and i want to be able to have my list searchable using one particlar list field - i have about 1000 items on the list

when i use filter - the list has to display before i can use the filter options, so that is no good if the list does not show on first load!!

Am or doing something wrong or is there not a way to filter the items unless the list is visible on page load - this become a bit tricky with 1000 items

Hi everyone,
on my project I have lists with records that can have a (html) "description" field filled or not.
I need to show the "details" button only on rows where the description exists.
I'm trying to edit javascript so that it checks when the field is empty before adding the "imgdetail" icon (listmanager.js, line 1058), but this has turned out to be quite difficult as all data is loaded and restructured dynamically, using lots of functions and very obscure design patterns.
Honestly, I despise the huge amount of JS this component uses, it's excessive, heavy and hard to customise!

Any hints on where to get data from the row while adding the buttons?

Unfortunately, I can't find the CSS class I added to my fields in the resulting code.

The required format, according to fields I've put in is:

The "specializzazione" field is a multiple option (list), already populated by hand with the 6 types expected.
I'm trying to load the file below, it gets imported, but creates empty specializzazione values when it meets multiple values, despite the file being written down according to instructions (For multivalued fields, separate values with a # character, this way: val1#val2#val3).
You can find the file attached here.

Moonsoft support 2015-08-03 12:04:52


I'm currently working on a website and have Hikashop installed.
The products sold (floors) are priced by m2 and sold per package. There is a Product Custom Field (inhoud_pak) which contains the contents per package (different values for different products).

I need a calculator on the product page which calculates the amount of packages needed for a certain lengt * width and set the outcome in the quantity field.

I have the CB Price calculator plugin installed which should be capable of "Use your product custom fields values to build price calculations as complex as needed, you can use all math operators, ranges, use data matrix, databases, or even upload an excel file to perform the operations.".

For the calculation I need the value of the custom field (inhoud_pak) for that product so I can calculate (length * width)/inhoud_pak. That value needs to be set in the quantity field in the cart.

How do I call the contents of the custom field for that product and set the outcome in the quantity field in the cart?

Kind regards,

Silvia Martín has been helping me so far and she has asked me to post any further questions on this forum.

The type of form is to calculate the cost of an arbitration service in the case of a dispute.

The requirement is to have a form with one data entry field. This field could either be:
- a numeric field with the $ amount under dispute
- a drop down list of ranges of amount under dispute, e.g., $550 - %500, $5001 - $10,000, etc

Depending on the value entered the cost of the arbitration must be found from the mapped spreadsheet.

(Silvia Martín has the spreadsheets and the output required as it is not possible to add them directly here).

Is it better to use a single value field or a selection list as the input and how do we map this value to the cost of arbitration amount in the spreadsheet ?

Hope that this request is clear - Silvia Martín has already confirmed in our pre-sales conversation that it is possible.

I added a key field. I created a view and added each field and made sure "Visible" is checked. There are no filters. The Display View has three fields. The form layout screen and detail layout settings are all identical. I went into Manage data and added some records manually.

On the configuration: List table. Under Show/Hide, everything is Yes.

Is there a way to stop any items that weren't ordered from been placed on the email?

I just updated ListManager from 2.1.5 to 2.2.0 and my added classes are not added anymore :

For example, my field 'Nom du service' has a Css class ' nomService' that I use to style the lmcardcontentblock div within my result page.

It used to give that html:

div class="lmcardcontentblock nomService"

But now, the added class is nowhere to be seen :

div class="lmcardcontentblock"

I checked the corresponding fields in backoffice and they still have the class names.

I fear I have to revert to the previous version or to re-add my records.

My problem is how list manager is set up and inserts data into the database. I have, at the moment, 30K records and each record has 64 fields. This, when displaying/exporting records, it is extremely inefficient.

If having the search/filter capability built into table manager, what would be a cost to have you build that?

I am not understanding Javascript events: cb_getValue and cb_setValue, or at least not observing what I expected. I need to do calculations, but just for testing purposes, consider

averageSalary (Type: Number)
benefits (Type: Number)
annualSalary (Type: Number)
monthlySalary (Type: Number)

Javascript events, Executed before calculate execution

//Get Value from Field
//var result=cb_getValue('myvar');
var averageSalaryResult=cb_getValue('averageSalary');
var benefitsResult=cb_getValue('benefits');

//Set Value from Field

When I enter a number in averageSalary and benefits, I expected to see the numbers in fields annualSalary and monthlySalary. However, the text "averageSalaryResult" and "benefitsResult" is shown.

2. I've also selected the "Strip Table" (and the border) option but all the rows of the table are still having a white background and it has no borders at all (only row separator lines). Any solution?

I'm using the latest Joomla 3.x version and the Purity III theme.

3. Another question: I have 3 filter fields on a list. Is it possible to make them "linked"? By linked I mean that if I select a value in the first filter field, the other 2 must show only the possible values related to the first one

Hi guys,

Backend: Configur Access Control: all ticks in row "public" removed.
Show/Hide Front sections: Toolbar visible

So, public visitors of the site can view the table es well as the edit tools.

Unfortunately, all the tools still work!
Public users CAN add, edit, delete records, despite the ACL config.

Am I missing something?

Description of use case:
One group of users creates records
Another group of users is allowed to modify just one field

More testing: Nothing I do using ACL has any effect in frontend :-(
The only thing that works is Access Control option in ListManager Menu item, using AccessControl "See all/edit only user records"
But that is not what I need.

Hi guys,

with v2.2.2 I created a listing with description.

After the update to v2.2.3 I can no longer edit the description of that list. The editor with the old text appears, I can modify it, but after "save" it is back to the old text.

When creating new lists, the description disappears once the "save" button is pressed.

Possibly related observation:
When I am in the list create/edit mode and press "save", I see this message that says "do you really want to quit this page?" (I see it in German, so it is a rough translation).

Normally this message only appears on certain web pages, when I try to leave a not-yet-completed form without pressing the "save" (or similar) button.

Funny: Adding/changing "Fields", which is part of the same "Listings:Edit" page DOES work.

More precise bug testing:

The "do you really want to quit?" warning does NOT appear when
- entering a new list name + "save"
- adding new fields + "save"
It does ONLY appear when
- entering a description for the list + "save"

So, this warning and my described bug are linked!

...and the bug was already there in v2.2.2

(Don't ask me how I ever managed (just once) to create a list that DOES have a description...)

Any hints?

I was experiencing a problem where some of the email headers values from email generated from Calc Builder were missing, and thus defaulted to my server's default settings. This was causing emails to go into the spam folder in Gmail.

In reviewing the code, I believe lines 740 and 741 of /components/com_calcbuilder/models/calcbuilder.php are wrong:

$config->get( 'config.mailfrom' ),
$config->get( 'config.fromname' ) );

changing them to

$config->get( 'mailfrom' ),
$config->get( 'fromname' ) );

solved my problem. I am a php/Joomla API novice, so don't take my word for it.

If I download xls/csv file there is a User name, and name of the value of the option field. But to import data correctly I need the user id and the value of the option field.
So, as it looks for me...List Manager exports the csv/xls files with the name of the values but to import data from the backends it needs the file with the values. I don't see any sense or I missed something.

And one more thing....Is it also possible to update/overwrite data while importing? As I see there is totally new entry being created so I need to delete all the entries and import updated again? I see there was a suggestion in APR'14 ( of such feature but I cannot find if it's implemented already.

Dear Sirs,

1. One of the fields in my list is a download link, which I would like to manage with phocaDownload Plugin, since I used it in other areas of the website.
The problem is that if I insert the code in the field using the plugin sintax it doesn't get interpretated when the page is displayed.
Usually modules have an apposite option to enable the interpretation of plugins code, but cannot find it for ListManager. Is it possible to enable it? Is there another way that allows me to use plugins within ListManager cards?

2. I have a problem also with the CSV import procedure. One of the fields of my list contains a video. Since plugins are not working I'm using standard code from youtube that includes the use of iframes.
I can put it without problems when doing it from the backend, in the editor, since enabled the option to not filter and remove iframes. But when I do the import using the CSV import function of ListManager the code to include the video gets removed. The field when I paste the csv code is a normal textbox without editor and there is not possibility to disable code to get cleaned once imported. How can I avoid the iframe code to get cleaned?

Thanks for your joomla extension, calc builder, it is awesome! I use joomla 3.5 on php 7 and all is working smoothly

I made a price calculator with fields that are option list. So for an option list there is a Name and a Value.
I would like to show in my report (email, pdf) the Name and the value of the fields to make a description of the price they pay and what for. Is it possible? natively.

For example, I have an option list with Name 'Once a week' with the value '15' € and another 'Once a Month' with the value '5' €
I would like to describe the price as follow:

"You have subscribed to our service at the price of 15 € per month. The task will be done Once a week."

So if the field is $price, I can easily display the value in the report using ##price## but how can I display the name of the option list field ?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,

I have the latest version of ListManager and it's great (just renewed my subscription), but for some reason my lists do not show the pagination lines at the top of bottom of lists unless I enable the "Add" button for that user group. I want Guests to be able to see the listings (and page through them), but don't want guests to be able to Add entries. And without having "Add" enabled, all that shows at the top and bottom of my lists is a long "Search" bar. The pagination options should ALWAYS be visible, since you can't page up or down the listing without them.

This is my first experience with this component and the only coding experience i have was in Visual Basic I am building a Fair Price calculator for a contracting company website

So we have 4 inputs
Material cost (Var1)
Labor Cost (Var2)
Debris Removal (Var3)
Permits and Fees (Var4)

I need to add the 4 variables

then multiply the sum by .5

Then add the 2 to get the Fair Price
$fairprice =$sum+$result;

so is this correct?
$sum=$Var1+$Var2+$Var3+$var4$result=$sum*.5; $fair price =$sum+$result;

I'm just playing around with the LM component and I faced 3 problems. Great component, but i do need a little bit of help with the fine-tuning.

Date issue
One of my entry fields is the date (list field settings type: date). The date is saved in the right format (dd-mm-yy); however, in the front-end view the date field is always displayed as the current date instead of the date I entered.

filter options
The country example on the demo page shows above the table a filter field with the following options: show filters, apply filters and disable filters. I do get the filter field above my table, however; the only option I see is "disable filter". I want the same filter field as in the country example but I'm kinda stuck.

Bulk update
I enabeld the bulk update function in the ACL and I do get a bulk update button; however, I don't have the option to select specific rows.

I hope somebody can help with the above issues.

Hi Guys,
I am new here and my first list is here:

1. I dont understand how to create a filter
2. "show all" is not on same height like the search function. it does not look nice.
3. how can I create list with all my products and have categories? Example: I have 200 kitchen products altogether. On subpage A I want only to display knives and on subpage B i only want to display spoons. (but i want to create only one list altogether and put all 200 products inside so that i can have a central search for all products on the indexpage/hompage. So if one uses the search field on homepage and searches for "knives" all the knives should be shown. is it possible?

We are using List Manager 2.3.10, the latest version. I would like to make one of our lists, generated in List Manager, exportable to PDF. I see how to accomplish that along with the ability to define content to include BEFORE as well as AFTER the list in the list's configuration "PDF/CSV Config" tab. In addition I see a "Detail PDF Layout" area available. However, I do not appear to be able to style the look of the table that is generated for the PDF. I gather, just by the fact that I have this Detail PDF Layout area, that I should be able to control the look of the output, is that true and if so, how does that need to be done if not via html and CSS?

In addition, I have the following questions about the display of lists and/or exporting them in PDF format

1. Disregard this first question!! ... I just found a similar question with your answer in a previous post. Due to the amount of real estate available to display a list in our webpage, I have marked some fields' "Visible" parameter to 'NO' but their "Exportable" parameter to "YES" so that while they aren't shown on the webpage, they will be included in the export. However, the fields that are configured in this matter do NOT export. Is this possible to do or not and if so, how?

2. Is it possible, whether in displaying a list view on a web page or in an export, to use code to display an image depending on the value for an entry's field? Or, for that matter, to define a different value to display based on the field value. I ask not only because an image could define a value with less real estate being used but because I notice that if a field has no value, the "##FIELD_NAME##" displays! If code is possible, can that be put right in the layout html or how is it done and I would need a sample for testing a field's value etc.

3. Depending on your responses regarding formatting a PDF, I thought perhaps using a RTF export might be simpler, but I see that it requires an .rtf file to reference. What would this .rtf file contain that would define the export's content and look and feel?

I am sorry to put so many questions in one posting, but since they are basically related, I thought it was better than posting them separately. Anything you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

When I want to edit the form-layout for the frontend, in the backend there is an editor, which does not allow to insert not-interpretated html-code. Even when I choose code or code sample in the drop down list "Format", where e.g. normally all "" are translated into "" the editor re-translte it and interpretate it as html.

In my example I want the users to fill in some html code into a field, when they add data to a list. When I create an article with the JCE-Editor I fill in e.g:

Dear all,

we installed the Listmanager on our website And after searching and searching to template builder told us Listmanager is somehow conflicting with Unite Revolution Slider. He will not load the images in the slider.

The template builder wrote us:

This is not the template bug. See the screenshot-1. You will get everything is fine.
But there is a component probably named list manager. It is causing some error on console. Which means it is conflicting with the slider revolution. See the screenshot-2.
Try to ask that component creator if they can help you.

Somtimes i have blank page. When i refresh i can see the Copy of the List. But with a lot of missing data.

Thank you

I created first matrix and everything works fine. Nevertheless, the second matrix does not show any results. I checked everything - code, variables, exit layout, but the result of second matrix never shows up. Need help.

Best regards,

Moonsoft support 2017-05-31 16:06:19


I have the following issue.

I have two fields which gave a result = $result. This result is a number (example 1000)

I have a table with different prices and based on the value from $result I want to show the right price.

Example $table

$result = till 100 price = 50
$result = between 100 en 300 price = 150
$result = between 300 and 500 price = 250

I have tested with a matrix but can't show the right price. It shows nothing when i place this in the code: $pricetoshow= $table

Of course I set $pricetoshow in the exit layout.

How can I do this?

Could excel input fields be configured as pre-calculated variables (inline results configured in code section) that don't even appear on the input form?

Moonsoft support 2017-06-03 23:55:10

This is a cosmetic question, hope you will give ma a hint how to do it. I have configured "side by side" input and output, so output shows on the right side of input. I have, though, a large empty gap between two. How can I reduce this gap so they (input column and output column) get closer to each other?

Hi all,

I've just bought Calcbuilder Extended for use with Hikashop with the CBPlugin and I'm having problems.

I really can't get any calculations happening at all, despite going through the tutorial.

We print labels by the sheet, and we need an easier way for customers to figure out how many sheets they have to order.

For example, one product sheet has 32 labels on it, so to order 200 of those labels would mean they would need 7 sheets.

So I set my code up like so:

//Tag count per sheet field is in the product table, and is input by us in the backend (32 in this case). It should not be visible to the customer

//Total Number of Tags is entered on the front end by the customer, and this number divided by the Tag count per sheet (and rounded up to next integer) would give us the total quantity

//Here I try to calculate the price based on the above input

I also have this code afterwards:

$hk_product_name='32 3 x 1.5 Tags';
$hk_product_description='32 Tags';

Things I'm seeing:

1. I don't see a "Calculate" button at all on my product pages. "Hide Calculate button" is set to NO in the calculator preferences. How do I get the button to show?

2. "Calculated price" and "Calculated price control" show up but do not do anything. I know the tutorial says they should be activated for front-end, but I really don't need "Calculated price control" there anyway. Plus, they are in the wrong part of my add-to-cart column. Can I move these?

Anyway, hopefully someone can tell me what exactly is going wrong here. Thanks.

I'm having an issue with list manager where i can see list data in the back end, but when i try to edit it, it doesn't let me.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Go to lists in list manager
2) click on "manage data" icon next to a list
3) check the box next to one of the rows to select it
4) click the "edit" button in the toolbar

Expected results:
I would see labels with text fields that have the data from the row in them that I can edit and save.

Actual results:
I see the labels, but there are no text fields or data. only the labels.

The meaning is that when you create a record the creator is entered. And when another User ist editing a record, the last editor is entered in the second field. Basically, it works. In the backend under "Manage data", "user1" is entered for "Creator" and user2 is "last editor".
But both entries are identical in the front-end list

When I add to the Service Log list i have setup a dropdown box (option list) so the user can choose for a list of Engineers from the Engineers list.

So, user selects customer and it automatically fills in, Customer name, Customer contact etc without having to manually fill the fields in again when they are already on the Customers List.

Hello. I have "successfully" created a calculator that as result tells you how many calories you should eat a day. However, I need to add 2 options on 3 different sections. In HEIGHT I need to have the option Cms or Feet and on WEIGHT I need LBS or Kgs and finally I need to know the goal of each person which will be 3 Options/Variable like GAIN, LOSS and MANTAIN. I am not sure how to do this. This is the link of my CalB

The new 3 options should do as follow if GAIN add 400 if LOSS substract 400 and if MANTAIN just multiply by 1(do nothing to the result)

Any ideas?

I have to small problems with my calculator. You can find him here:

If you open it you cannot see an option in the list automatically. It should be great if there is automatically the smallest option (in my case "3" is choosen).
When I choose manually the option in the list I cannot see my entry, the field is empty. By clicking on "calculate" everything works fine. So it looks like that this is only an error in displaying the options.

Here you can find two screenshot where you can see what I mean:

With reference to my ticket #1726 I have posted on the Hikashop forum the question: Is it there a way to give a picture to the hikashop checkout?.

See also

They answered:
"The image is not stored in a different table. The image path is stored in the same table. It's only the image data which is stored in the upload safe folder. And this requires the data of the image to be passed in $_FILES.
However, I don't know how the data is given by the calculator to HikaShop. It is done with a redirect to the add to cart URL of the product ? In that case, that won't be technically possible. Or is the add to cart done in PHP and then the calculator redirect to the checkout ? In that case, the calculator could store the image data in the correct folder and store the image path in the table like it does with other custom fields and it would work.
I'm afraid you'll have to check with them again with the additional information I gave above :/"

1st thanks for this great component. I needed to build calculator by mimicking simple Excel spreadsheet
and this component was big relief after time spent by fiddling with other form creators for Joomla.

I created one calculator where user needs to fill some numbers and form shows results in inline fields
There are also three text fields and one Checkbox on the bottom where users needs to fill their personal details before sending email.
I've set Name field and Checkbox to be required.
- Throws calculate on init page > Yes
- Hide Calculate button > Yes
- On three text fields on the bottom > Reload Inline events > No


1. Whenever page loads, it shows this prompt: "Some values are incorrect"
That's happens if I set "Your Name" or Checkbox I agree field to be required.
I need to have both them required and Id to keep "Throws calculate on init page" option activated
Is it possible to exclude these from initial page init on load?

Any suggestions how to fix this issue?

2. Where can I edit email and PDF templates?
- I used bootstrap in Form layout but this doesnt work in email. I need to have three columns
Should I use tables instead of bootstrap template?

3. How to prevent sending empty fields in email? (Or to be shown in PDF)
Currently if field is empty, user gets ##variablename## in email.
Maybe to set up some conditional rules? Examples?

4. What would be the best way to replace default "Send by email to" field at bottom with Custom email field
And custom send email button which is shown next to reset button?
I would like to have all user fields in one area, like: Name, Email, Phone, etc.
And all needed buttons on the bottom

5. Is it possible to have Print button at bottom, like PDF and Excel buttons?

I'm making a calculator that filters values from a database to calculate the price of a product based on its components. Basically it consists of:

Option list - that retrieves category names using sql actions;
Linked list (sql) - retrieves component names according to the category selected above.
Component is selected and price is calculated.

So far everything is simple and works fine, but the issue is that to calculate the price of a single product I need to add several components to calculation thus sections have to be used.

I know arrays are in action here, but I just can't figure out the correct syntax how to make it work. Not sure if I'm missing something, or tutorial and examples just doesn't cover this case.

Necesitamos crear dos tipos de calculadoras y no sabemos qué tipo de campo usar ni cómo vincular los resultados a Virtuemart:

Calculadora 1: Precio por metro cuadrado (cortinas, estores y persiansas) redondeando de 5 en 5 cm.
Queremos que calcule precio por metro cuadrado entrando las medidas en cm y redondeando de 5 en 5 para el cálculo del precio. Es decir, si entran 94 x 126 el precio es el equivalente a 95 x 130. (Y lo mismo si entran 93x128,,,) El usuario introduce las medidas, no las selecciona de una lista de selección.

Calculadora 2 Matriz- Precio asignado en función de una tabla de ancho x alto (No precio por metro cuadrado sino precio anotado directamente) Entrando las medidas en cm y redondeando de 10 en 10 cm a la medida superior. Es decir, en la tabla o csv las columnas y filas saltarían de 50 a 60, de 60 a 70 etc. De manera que el precio de un producto a medida de 59 x 53 debería llevar a la matriz de 60x60. El usuario introduce las medidas, no las selecciona de una lista de selección.
En el caso de la Matriz he hecho una prueba pero no funciona. ¿Podría subir un archivo de imagen con las configuraciones para que las vean?

¿Qué ejemplo de calculadora usar para cada caso?
¿Qué tipo de campo debemos usar en cada caso?
¿Qué tipo de operación debemos introducir o qué debemos hacer para que redondée el resultado de 5 en 5 (metro cuadrado) o de 10 en 10 (matriz)?
¿Cómo vinculamos las operaciones con Virtuemart?

I have a very simple calculation:

This, based on values I provided, works.

The output / result can be between 1 and 100. Maybe in steps of 10, maybe in steps of 1 (still have to decide).

Based on the result I want to display specific information. Do you think this is possible?

So if result = 31 display moduleposition31
If result = 55 displaymoduleposition55

Thanks in advance!

In frontend LM shows in the filter input area always "LMPLACEHOLDER" when I use the standard-layout. I only can use standard-layout, because your intgrated layouts only show dark text that is on the black site-template not visible. How can I change?

I guess Joomla 3 will be around for a while. And many extensions are not ready yet.

Table Manager is one of those, plus plus it was lacking responsive support and bootstrap.
List Manager now has this support but is unfortunatly not compatible with Joomla 3 anymore.

Please consider a solution to support Joomla 3 with these important features.

Well found this guide and HELPED a lot to understand the List Manager extension. However, when trying the Manage Data from back end I got a fatal error. Please note I was able to add data from frond-end module and item is listed. Link that cause the error:

The error is:
An error has occurred.

0 Call to undefined function Moonsoft\Component\Listmanager\Administrator\View\Data\_()

Setup: Ubuntu 20.04, PHP 7.4.25, MySQL 8, Apache 2.4.51 and Joomla 4.04.

Have to figure this as my main use for the List Manager involves importing data from CSV (next thing to try).

Thanks in advance

Hi Moonsoft-Team
I've been using Listmanager for years with Joomla3 without any problems
I have some problems with the new Listmanager and Joomla 4
Before updating to Joomla 4 and Listmanager 4x, I want to test and learn. For this I reinstalled Joomla4.0.4 and Listmanger 4.0.6_40.

2 problems.
I can't find an ACL for the table.
I cannot create a menu item for a table.

The test table is only visible via a module and can also be edited (super user) .... but I cannot find any settings for other user groups and also no possibility of creating a menu item for the table

I have a few questions regarding the use of the extension :)

1: after having configured the 'email' field with the type 'text' and put validation at 'email' I can enter any text (without format email @) it is accepted and displayed in the table. how to validate the 'email' format when typing? (with error if there is no @ for example)

2: how to change the order of the fields once they have been created? ex: email after address or name

3: I created a 'query' type field in order to display the sum of 2 other fields, unfortunately after several attempts of sql queries, the field does not display anything (empty) : I use the prefix of my Joomla’s table in the query ( joomlaPrefix_myListName ) and no-prefix for the field names (field1+field2) ex:
SELECT Id, field_text_6 + field_text_5 FROM gf50x__MaList Id field_text_5 + field_text_6 table contains about thirty (30) fields, any idea to display it correctly in fronted?

I did configured one column as unique, so user can't entered the same data on the same filed. but the user will not know about it until he/she save it.

Hi MSteam

Could you please tell me how can I make connection for column/value on 2 tables

For example I have a table1 with 3column value (user_id as a text type value),( on_off as option list type value with 2 options in it On/Off), and (owner_id as user type value), on the other hand I have a table2 with 3column value as well (user_id as an option list type value + applied SQL query under the option list for the user_id/table2 as "select user_id as id, user_id as value from table1 where user_id= ##id_user##"and (owner2_id as user type value).

*table1/user_id has 3 record each one has a value "sara", "sara1", " sara2", and for on_off column value is set as "on" for both "sara" and "sara1" and set to "off" value for "sara2".
when I create new record in table2 I can see a list menu in the filed of user_id showing the 3 sara from table1 which is working perfect.

my issue is how can I make it to show "on" in table2 recored after I choose "sara" or "sara1" from the list? or to show no if i choose "sara2" since On/Off is can be modified in table1 only

2- Filter page not saving previous stored Field, it only saves the name of the filter and every time I need to add/edit the filter I have to reconfigure all the filters previously stored.

3- Bulk update stay on the same page after saving, it does not redirect back to table, need manually click back.

4- in the Data Layout page if you add toolbar above the table, then by accident you saved the page without adding any option/filter to the toolbar , then you will loose the middle table, it will just disappear and can't be recovered by access the page again.

List manager newbie here.

I haven't found any documentation for your File Upload field capability. Am wondering if I have it setup properly and am using it correctly.

I've created a list with 3 fields, ID, a text area field and a file upload field.

The ID and test area appear to be working properly.

- I click New on my data table. I'm taken to the form page.
- I enter text into the text area.
- I hit the browse button and select a file. A progress bar gives the appearance that the file uploads.
- I hit save
- I go back to my table and refresh.... the ID is properly incremented and text area is saved correctly, there is nothing in the file upload field.
(I checked my db with php admin and confirmed that field is empty

I have the file upload field setup as a text field in my db.

What I'd like is to be able to see a linked filename in my table. Is that the appropriate expectation ?

A couple more related questions....

- After submitting my form I'd like to redirect to a refreshed version of the table..... how could I do that ?

- where are the uploaded files stored ? is there a place to set that folder ?

Many thanks

I can set up a new Calc or edit one of my old ones, I am in Joomla 4.4.3 and Calc 4.5
My old Calcs all work on the front end, but I just want to add more Options to my Option lists in the backend. I find that with new or old Calcs, the Add CVS file or Add Manually buttons don't work.
With my old Calcs, many of which will have three or four options to chose, none of these are displayed anywhere in the backend - they do show and work and on the front end. Its perplexing.
Great if there is a solution somewhere. Thankyou

Hi there,

I'm attempting to establish fixed conditions using valid SQL in the fixed custom filter, but I'm not seeing any results in the frontend table. I utilized the query:

SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE field = '123';

Did I overlook something here?

As already mentioned in some mails, we have a problem with the fields/column loading and saving from a joomla table. See your comment in one of the latest mails:
''ok, with the video we are not able to see the request or the response thrown by your server, but given the huge amount of time the fields page took to load we assume there are a big number of fields at your table,so we think you may be facing any restriction about the number of variables your server allows to handle in a single request. For ex, the


setting can be restricting the request, thus throwing an error and making the save function fail. It's just a guess, if you are able to provide a temp access we can debug directly at your site and let you know our findings."

The search based on a concatenated field doesn't work when the search type is set to 'Exact'. It reports 'No Result' even when the search value entered matches exactly a value in the database column. Here's my scenario...
I have three fields: Forename, Surname and Full_Name.
Full_Name is a calculated/concatenated field using the formula: concat(`firstnames`,' ',`surname`)
If I set the search type to 'Broad' the search dislays matched records on either the Forename or the Surname (as expected) but if I set the search type to 'Exact' it fails to find/display any.
So if I search for my name: Richard Williams it doesn't match/display it, so the issue appears to be something to do with matching the space character between the two words.

I'm not entirely sure how to use stylesheets here. There seems to be nothing describing in the tutorial.

Is it possible to control how to display the local language if you e.g., want to display days and months?
It seems as if it's only English right now, even if I've set another Joomla language.

Hello again!

I''m almost done with my questions :)

I use a tooltip-plugin that is activated by typing e.g., {tip title="Title"} etc. in an editor.
Since I can have an url in the HTML Editor, using tooltip seemed like a straight forward solution.
It doesn't activate though... any ideas or suggestions?

Ive been using Calcbuilder for years and I love it. I recently upgraded to Joomla 5.1.1. with Calcbuilder 5.1.3.

For the first time in a long time I want to add more options but I cant find a way to do it. I dont see the same area to add options as I used to have in old versions. There are a number of buttons under "Form Fields" "Advanced" which are not clickable for me.

Am I having an issue with the upgrade or is another component/module causing a conflict?

FYI, the calculator is working on the front end.

Your help is appreciated.

I had an open ticket with you regarding this issue, however, since you have launched your new website that support ticket is no longer available. If you have access to the previous ticket you may want to review it. The following is an outline of where we left off and what needs to be resolved:

- The PDF download function was not working with this site or the sites theme.
- There was some effort by your support to resolve the issue.
- Due to the need to launch the site we decided to use CSS to hide the PDF option: CB("button").css('display','none');
- Now we are circling back with you to resolve the problem and get the PDF Download to function.

Here is a staging site your are free to log into to and work without fear of effecting the live site:

So I figured out how I am going to handle payments, so that's not an issue anymore. However, I am having some problems with outputs and the PDF the system generates.

For the outputs, when I was entering a sort of SKU in the database field for drop down lists, it was populating the exit layout with the database field rather than the frontend field, which is not correct. So I copied the frontend field to the database field, and now it puts nothing in there.. How do I get it to give me the frontend field and NOT the database value there?

Also, how do I NOT show the input on the output page? I don't want to have the form above if possible.

Then there's the PDF export, which is showing a double line border, where there should be a single line. How do I fix that formatting? It should appear EXACTLY as it does on the exit layout.

You can test it here:

In the interest of getting this resolved quickly, so I can keep building my site, I've also created an Admin account for you with the following credentials.

I'm trying to set up email sending, and first of all, it's not sending, but secondly, it's giving a weird text string on the frontend. Seems like it's using the wrong part of the variable?

My calculator has started given "invalid token" instead of a drawing. Sometimes it also gives me an image of the form instead of the drawing. Can you please advise what is causing that?

Also. I tried to use the phone number mask for the phone field, and it displays incorrectly. Instead of the brackets around the first three digits, it gives one bracket after number 3, and then the opening bracket is at the end.

The date field option also displays the calendar, but when you select a date, it does nothing.

Can you please advise why that's not working too?

I'm trying to get ONE calculator built so I can just use it as a template for the others, but I do need to fix these issues.

This is probably a simple answer, but is there some way to stop all the spreadsheets from being titled "calcbuilder?" Whenever a PDF is generated and you open it online, the name on the tab is calcbuilder.

I thought about changing the folder for PDF storage, but before I do that, I'd like to confirm that it will fix the problem, and that there's nothing else I need to do?

Hi again,

Another question.

What size paper does the PDF output generate?

Some places use A4 paper sizes, but the US and Canada use Letter.

If the PDF output size is not correct for the area, it won't print correctly. Can you confirm?

The fix you suggested worked for a while, but now I have a double line around the PDF version of my output. The screen version still looks fine, but the PDF has a double line.

PLEASE can you advise how I can fix this? I need the PDF to have one single line around each cell, just like the screen version of my output.
