Hello,

I am tring to have two different views which change on button click. I want to display different title width for each view. I know I can do the following in JS

{literal}
  <script type="text/javascript">
   if ($('ul#product_list').hasClass('GRID_VIEW')){
	{$product.name|escape:'htmlall':'UTF-8'|truncate:35:'...'}</a></h3>
   }
   else if ($('ul#product_list').hasClass('LIST_VIEW')){
	{$product.name|escape:'htmlall':'UTF-8'|truncate:75:'...'}</a></h3>
   }
  </script>
  {/literal}

but id did not display the title at all.

 

Is there a way to use smarty in order to achieve the above desired result?

 

THANK YOU.

No experience with it, but can't you use php function get_class($classVariable) here??

 

Other option might be to just to create a var that holds the status of the viewtype and toggle it when pressing the button, as well as truncate according to ViewType equals 0 (i.e. Gridview) or 1(i.e. listview)

 

My 2 cents,

I kinda solved it by using something as follows:

[/size]
<div class="grid_checker">
  {if $subcategory.description}
   <p class="cat_desc">{$subcategory.description|truncate:250}</p>
  {/if}
 </div>
 <div class="list_checker">
  {if $subcategory.description}
   <p class="cat_desc">{$subcategory.description}</p>
  {/if}
 </div>

the parent DIV was changing class if it was grid or list. And then in css I added that grid_checker or list_checker was set to display:hidden or display:block... It does the trick - but it is not efficient as it calls twice for the same thing. I just wanted somehow to add the "truncate:250" if the parent div has class or not. oh well... (thanks for the cents :-)
