HelperList and pagination

Recommended Posts



i am build new module for administration, but i have problem with helperList (http://doc.prestashop.com/display/PS15/HelperList)


i can load products to list, but pagination is not working, also helperList returns 0 in total results

$helperList = new HelperList();
$helperList->bulk_actions = array(
	   'text'=>$this->l('Delete selected'), 
	    'confirm'=>$this->l('Delete selected items?'))
$helperList->_select = Product::getProducts($this->context->language->id, 0, '','id_product','ASC');
$helperList->_defaultOrderBy = 'id_product';
$fields_list = array(
	'id_product' => array(
		'title' => $this->l('ID'),
		'align' => 'center',
		'width' => 50,
	'name' => array(
		'title' => $this->l('Name'),
		'width' => 'auto'
$helperList->identifier = 'id_product';
$helperList->title = $this->l('Produkty a kategórie');
$helperList->token = Tools::getAdminTokenLite('AdminModules');
$helperList->currentIndex = AdminController::$currentIndex.'&configure='.$this->name;
$helperList->table = $this->name.'_products';
return $helperList->generateList($helperList->_select, $fields_list);

Why you are use $helperList->_select to define your data list ?

There is no protected variable $_select within Helper object


Total numbers of data results, should be defined using $listTotal variable in your helper object.
If listTotal is undefined, then it will use 0 as defaut value and then your pagination won't work because the total page = 1

Pagination also won't work if the total number of data less than pagination value

$fields_list['id_whatever'] = array(
            'title' => $this->l('ID'),
            'align' => 'center',
            'type' => 'int',
            'width' => 40
$fields_list['name'] = array(
            'title' => $this->l('Name'),
            'filter_key' => 'b!name'

$result = // your query here, 2 dimensional array(), e.g array(array('id_whatever' => 1, 'name' => 'whatever'))

$helper = new HelperList();
$helper->listTotal(count($result)); // define the total numbers of result to be displayed

// rest of helper vars

return $helper->generateList($result, $fields_list);
