How does admin tabs MVC work ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to understand how to create module following 1.5's principles.

 

For the front components, it's ok, an example can be found in the blocknewsletter module.

 

But for the admin components, I can't get it to work !

 

What I want to achieve in the very end is add a tab entry in the menu and manage the module from there. My tab doesn't manage any ModelObject in particular so it's not

 

I have added an admin tab, whichs does not extends AdminTab but ModuleAdminControllerCore.

 

AFAIK it seems to work like this :

- Create a controller following the naming convention Admin<tabName>Controller, in a file named <tabName>.php, in /controller/admin, in the module folder.

- Create views in /views/admin/<tabName>/, in module folder. The default view name is "content"

 

This renders the content.tpl template.

 

But is this really intended to work like this ?

I want to use multiple controllers in the same tab/module and make hyperlinks between them, how to do that ?

 

It's confusing and the shipped modules don't help, their views are resolved in the admin/themes folder.

 

Please help :)

Hello,

in order to create an admin controller in your module, please follow these steps :

 

1. Create a file controllers/admin/MyTab.php in your module with following code :

class MyTabController extends ModuleAdminController {}

 

2. Add our tab in ps_tab table, you can create your tab like this in the install method :

$tab = new Tab();
$tab->name = 'My Tab';
$tab->module = 'yourmodulename';
$tab->id_parent = 0; // Root tab
$tab->add();

 

3. Your tab will be available in the menu.

 

4. Now if you want to customize your tab, you can do it the same way as other admin controllers, please look admin classes in ~/controllers/admin/ folders.

 

5) If you want to override default views you can do it yourmodule/views/templates/admin/mytab/ folder. For example if ou want to override the view helpers/form/form.tpl you have to create a file yourmodule/views/templates/admin/mytab/helpers/form/form.tpl

Hey Raphael,

 

Thank you for your answer.

 

The code which adds the tab is the same as adding it via the UI, right ? Actually, I need to attach my tab under the "Preferences" section.

 

The thing is, I have looked at AdminControllers, but can't understand how it is intended to work, apart if your tab is backed by an ObjectModel. The tab I want to build does not need to display a particular ObjectModel.

 

For example, where am I supposed to write the controller code (say, retrieve parameters, do something, and assign view variables) ? In the initContent method ?

 

Can you explain a little more about the /helpers folder ?

I have some questions about modules also. If you don't mind I ask these questions here, because it would be convenient to have one topic about modules development.

 

The first question: I want my module to create overrides for some core classes, is it one way for this purpose to copy overriding classes while the module is installed to override/classes directory or there is another way as well?

 

How can I do overrides for templates of core admin controllers? I've found the possibility to create one more theme in admin/themes/mythemename and activate this theme from admin panel. Is that the only way?

Hello,

 

Raphaël, I would be very interested in the process of adding a tab admin but this time not using a module, but using the controllers & overrides.

 

I tried to add an admin controller, then a tab, but it returns me "controller" ... "not found" ...

I am now trying to add a tab in the admin without using a module.

I create a new tab via "Admin / Tabs" and it appears fine. But it does not have a controller "x controller not found".

 

What is the procedure? Create a module is it mandatory to add a tab?

 

Thank you.

To do this I'm afraid you will need to extend the Controller class directly.

Look at the Module*Controller constructor, it needs a module :

 

public function __construct()
{
 $this->module = Module::getInstanceByName(Tools::getValue('module'));
 if (!$this->module->active)
  Tools::redirect('index');
 $this->page_name = 'module-'.$this->module->name.'-'.Dispatcher::getInstance()->getController();
 parent::__construct();
}

Hi mexique1,

 

I tried precisely that but I cannot make it work (I get the same error as Dev On Web).

 

I ask myself what is wrong in these steps:

 

1. - I create /controllers/admin/AdminCostCenterController.php like so:

class AdminCostCenterControllerCore extends AdminController{}

 

2. I create /classes/CostCenter.php like

class CostCenterCore extends ObjectModel{}

 

3. I create the overrides /override/classes/CostCenter.php and /override/controllers/admin/AdminCostCenterController.php as:

class CostCenter extends CostCenterCore{}

and

class AdminCostCenterController extends AdminCostCenterControllerCore{}

 

Got any idea?

OK, I found the error in my case and that could be the problem also for Dev on Web: When adding the tab I named the class only CostCenter while it should be AdminCostCenter.

To sum up this thread (and I think that the moderator then can mark it as SOLVED):

 

In order to create an ADMIN tab you should create

 

1. Example.php in /classes/

2. AdminExampleController.php in /controllers/admin/

3. a ps_example table

4. a tab Example in the admin interface.

 

Here comes the working code:

 

1. The class:

<?php
class Example extends ObjectModel
 {

 public $id;

 public $name;

public static $definition = array(
 'table' => 'example',
 'primary' => 'id_example',
 'multilang' => false,
 'fields' => array(
  'name' => array('type' => self::TYPE_STRING, 'validate' => 'isGenericName', 'required' => true, 'size' => 64),
 ),
);

 public static function getCompanies()
{
return Db::getInstance(_PS_USE_SQL_SLAVE_)->ExecuteS('
SELECT e.`id_example`, c.`name`
FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'example` c
ORDER BY c.`name` ASC');
}
 }
?>

 

2. The Controller:

<?php

class AdminExampleControllerCore extends AdminController
{
public function __construct()
{
  $this->table = 'example';
  $this->className = 'Example';
  $this->lang = false;
 $this->addRowAction('edit');
 $this->addRowAction('delete');
  $this->bulk_actions = array('delete' => array('text' => $this->l('Delete selected'), 'confirm' => $this->l('Delete selected items?')));
 $this->fieldsDisplay = array(
  'id_example' => array('title' => $this->l('ID'), 'align' => 'center', 'width' => 25),
  'name' => array('title' => $this->l('Title'), 'width' => 130),
 );
 parent::__construct();
}
public function renderForm()
{
 $this->fields_form = array(
  'legend' => array(
'title' => $this->l('Examples'),
'image' => '../img/admin/example.gif'
  ),
  'input' => array(
array(
 'type' => 'text',
 'label' => $this->l('Title:'),
 'name' => 'name',
 'size' => 33,
 'required' => true,
 'desc' => $this->l('Example name'),
),
  ),
  'submit' => array(
'title' => $this->l('   Save   '),
'class' => 'button'
  )
 );

 return parent::renderForm();
}

}

 

3. DB:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `ps_example` (
 `id_example` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
 `name` varchar(128) character set utf8 NOT NULL,
 PRIMARY KEY  (`id_example`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=5 ;

 

4: Add TAB:

post-328451-0-53588300-1335282241_thumb.jpg

 

Note that in my case I don't use translations since the site will never be in any other language than italian. Check the small differences in, for instance, Contact.php and AdminContactsController.php for the code.

 

Hope this will help someone.

 

Best Regards

 

Henrik

This worked perfectly for a module upgrade to 1.5. Thanks

Thanks a lot for this thread,

 

The new developer guide doesnt seem to be up to date, and it helped me a lot dealing with the new MVC features.

 

May i ask how to display a template in this MVC module ?

 

I'm trying to create a module based on AdminCustomerController . when i put : $this->display='myaction'; in a new method

 

it looks in "themes" and "overrides" but not in my module directory . And it still loads the List view.

 

I would just like to be able to display a custom view for a new method with the new coding style. (I've not been able to find any module with a MVC admin yet to learn from it, can you advise one ? )

 

Thanks a lot

Hi!

 

First of all, great job, this topic is great, I've been searching something like this for days. I'm newbie in PrestaShop module development, and all tutorials that I found are very basic, they don't talk about Tabs or Back Office functionalities.

 

I've tried what DrGren said, but it is not effective in my case. I'm trying to create a module that associates products to 'deals', and I need a new Back Office Tab where I can add new deals. Ok, until here, it is simply.

 

I have created the tab, and I can see it and access without errors... and without anything. It is blank, I can see the top menu, a huge blank space, and the footer, nothing more. I just did what DrGren said: the files contains the same code (obviously, adapted to my classes), the Controller goes into /controllers/admin/ folder, and the class goes into /classes folder (during the install, the module copies controller and class to their respective folders). Why I can not see anything?

 

Thanks again!

5) If you want to override default views you can do it yourmodule/views/templates/admin/mytab/ folder. For example if ou want to override the view helpers/form/form.tpl you have to create a file yourmodule/views/templates/admin/mytab/helpers/form/form.tpl

 

 

Are you sure this part is working? I have tried to override the form.tpl for my module and it did not take into account my override.

 

OK it works -> typo mistake in the name of "mytab"

Hello.

 

First of all: thank you guys for this step by step tutorial how to create new back-office functionality.

 

I followed yours instructions and came across a problem. Maybe you could help me?

 

When I create a tab (Administration --> Menus) whose parent is not 'Home' (but for example: Orders) it is displayed correctly.

 

But if I choose Home as parent for my new tab, it is not appear. For 'big' tabs (which are supposed to have submenus) I have to write module also (and write this module name when creating a tab)?

 

Cheers,

Anna

ADMIN tab MVC module view controller dose not follow the fully MVC structure. You can add the admin panel a new tab 

function install(){
		if (parent::install() == false){
            return false;
        }
    	if (!$id_tab) {
	      	$tab = new Tab();
            if ($this->psversion()==5){
	      	    $tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName;
            } else {
                $tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName."14";
            }
	      	$parent_tab = new Tab();
			
			  
				foreach (Language::getLanguages(true) as $lang)
						$parent_tab->name[$lang['id_lang']] = $this->displayName;

						$parent_tab->add();
			
			$tab->id_parent = Tab::getIdFromClassName($this->tabClassName);
	      	$tab->module = $this->name;
	      	$languages = Language::getLanguages();
	      	foreach ($languages as $language)
		        $tab->name[$language['id_lang']] = $this->displayName;
	    	$tab->add();
    	}  
		$sql= "CREATE TABLE `"._DB_PREFIX_."citycakeserviceclient` (`id` INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY ,
	    `service_type` INT(11), `date_add` datetime NOT NULL)";
	   
	    if(!$result=Db::getInstance()->Execute($sql))
	    {	//insert one data with default value
			return false;
		}
	    
        return true;
	}

so you can see 

 

if (!$id_tab) {
         $tab = new Tab();
if ($this->psversion()==5){
          $tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName;
} else {
$tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName."14";
}
         $parent_tab = new Tab();
            

above section to add the tab during the module installation.

 

you can see more in details mrphpguru.com

ADMIN tab MVC module view controller dose not follow the fully MVC structure. You can add the admin panel a new tab 

function install(){
		if (parent::install() == false){
            return false;
        }
    	if (!$id_tab) {
	      	$tab = new Tab();
            if ($this->psversion()==5){
	      	    $tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName;
            } else {
                $tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName."14";
            }
	      	$parent_tab = new Tab();
			
			  
				foreach (Language::getLanguages(true) as $lang)
						$parent_tab->name[$lang['id_lang']] = $this->displayName;
						$parent_tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName;
						$parent_tab->position = $this->position;
						$parent_tab->add();
			
			$tab->id_parent = Tab::getIdFromClassName($this->tabClassName);
	      	$tab->module = $this->name;
	      	$languages = Language::getLanguages();
	      	foreach ($languages as $language)
		        $tab->name[$language['id_lang']] = $this->displayName;
	    	$tab->add();
    	}  
		$sql= "CREATE TABLE `"._DB_PREFIX_."citycakeserviceclient` (`id` INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY ,
	    `service_type` INT(11), `date_add` datetime NOT NULL)";
	   
	    if(!$result=Db::getInstance()->Execute($sql))
	    {	//insert one data with default value
			return false;
		}
	    
        return true;
	}

so you can see 

 

if (!$id_tab) {

         $tab = new Tab();

if ($this->psversion()==5){

          $tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName;

} else {

$tab->class_name = $this->tabClassName."14";

}

         $parent_tab = new Tab();

            

above section to add the tab during the module installation.

To sum up this thread (and I think that the moderator then can mark it as SOLVED):

 

In order to create an ADMIN tab you should create

 

1. Example.php in /classes/

2. AdminExampleController.php in /controllers/admin/

3. a ps_example table

4. a tab Example in the admin interface.

 

Here comes the working code:

 

1. The class:

<?php
class Example extends ObjectModel
{

public $id;

public $name;

public static $definition = array(
'table' => 'example',
'primary' => 'id_example',
'multilang' => false,
'fields' => array(
'name' => array('type' => self::TYPE_STRING, 'validate' => 'isGenericName', 'required' => true, 'size' => 64),
),
);

public static function getCompanies()
{
return Db::getInstance(_PS_USE_SQL_SLAVE_)->ExecuteS('
SELECT e.`id_example`, c.`name`
FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'example` c
ORDER BY c.`name` ASC');
}
}
?>

 

2. The Controller:

<?php

class AdminExampleControllerCore extends AdminController
{
public function __construct()
{
$this->table = 'example';
$this->className = 'Example';
$this->lang = false;
$this->addRowAction('edit');
$this->addRowAction('delete');
$this->bulk_actions = array('delete' => array('text' => $this->l('Delete selected'), 'confirm' => $this->l('Delete selected items?')));
$this->fieldsDisplay = array(
'id_example' => array('title' => $this->l('ID'), 'align' => 'center', 'width' => 25),
'name' => array('title' => $this->l('Title'), 'width' => 130),
);
parent::__construct();
}
public function renderForm()
{
$this->fields_form = array(
'legend' => array(
'title' => $this->l('Examples'),
'image' => '../img/admin/example.gif'
),
'input' => array(
array(
'type' => 'text',
'label' => $this->l('Title:'),
'name' => 'name',
'size' => 33,
'required' => true,
'desc' => $this->l('Example name'),
),
),
'submit' => array(
'title' => $this->l(' Save '),
'class' => 'button'
)
);

return parent::renderForm();
}

}

 

3. DB:

 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `ps_example` (
`id_example` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`name` varchar(128) character set utf8 NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`id_example`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=5 ;

4: Add TAB:

attachicon.gifaddtab.jpg

 

Note that in my case I don't use translations since the site will never be in any other language than italian. Check the small differences in, for instance, Contact.php and AdminContactsController.php for the code.

 

Hope this will help someone.

 

Best Regards

What about icon? :D

$parent_tab = new Tab();

$parent_tab->name[$this->context->language->id] = $this->l('boo foo');
$parent_tab->class_name = 'AdminControllerParentClassName';
$parent_tab->id_parent = 0;
$parent_tab->module = $this->name;
$parent_tab->add();

How to also set icon for tab? I can't find information about that.

You will have to use css for that.

Add a css file in mymodulename/css folder and then use a hook to load it:

public function hookDisplayBackOfficeHeader()
    {
        $this->context->controller->addCSS($this->_path . 'css/mycssfile.css');
    }

Inside the css file you will have:

.icon-AdminControllerParentClassName:before{ content: "\f019"; }

Most importantly, extraordinary employment, this point is incredible, I've been hunting something like this down days. I'm a beginner in PrestaShop module improvement, and all instructional exercises that I found are extremely essential, they don't discuss Tabs or Back Office functionalities. 
 
I've attempted what Darren stated, however, it is not successful for my situation. I'm attempting to make a module that partners items to 'arrangements', and I require another Back Office Tab where I can include new arrangements. Alright, until here, it is essential. 
 
I have made the tab, and I can see it and access without blunders... what's more, without anything. It is clear, I can see the best menu, a gigantic clear space, and the footer, not much. I simply did what Darren stated: the documents contain a similar code (clearly, adjusted to my classes), the Controller goes into/controllers/administrator/envelope, and the class goes into/classes organizer (amid the introduce, the module duplicates controller and class to their individual envelopes). Why can I not see anything?

Thanks
Jacky
