pre-fill product description input field in back office?


Recommended Posts



there is a code:

				languages=$languages input_name='description'

you can change it, add there if condition to check if $product->description contains some contents

if not - include some custom content, if so include $product->description

Is there a option for Presta 1.7.5? Especially for the Short description?

I have found httpdocs/src/PrestaShopBundle/Form/Admin/Product/ProductInformation.php

But how i set it up with 'data' => 'some text the pre fill', Does overide text that already in DB and that is not showing after saving product, then DATA has come back kicking in.
I must do an if empty then on the text area but symphony is not my strongest side.

        ->add('description_short', TranslateType::class, [
                'type' => FormType\TextareaType::class, // https://github.com/symfony/symfony/issues/5906
                'options' => [
			    'data' => 'Testen', //This overides the stored information in the DB, So does not work.
                    'attr' => [
                        'class' => 'autoload_rte',
                        'placeholder' => $this->translator->trans('The summary is a short sentence describing your product.<br />It will appears at the top of your shop\'s product page, in product lists, and in search engines\' results page (so it\'s important for SEO). To give more details about your product, use the "Description" tab.', [], 'Admin.Catalog.Help'),
                        'counter' => (int) $this->configuration->get('PS_PRODUCT_SHORT_DESC_LIMIT') <= 0 ? 800 : (int) $this->configuration->get('PS_PRODUCT_SHORT_DESC_LIMIT'),
                    'constraints' => [
                        new TinyMceMaxLength([
                            'max' => (int) $this->configuration->get('PS_PRODUCT_SHORT_DESC_LIMIT') <= 0 ? 800 : (int) $this->configuration->get('PS_PRODUCT_SHORT_DESC_LIMIT'),
                    'required' => false,
                'locales' => $this->locales,
                'hideTabs' => true,
                'label' => $this->translator->trans('Short description', [], 'Admin.Catalog.Feature'),
                'required' => false,
