How to use field values inside FLEXIContent template instead of using field's HTML display

Hi,

My field is showdesc:
Code:
1::Yes%% 0::No%%

In my template this works well:
Code:
<?php if (($this->item->fields['showdesc']->display) == "Yes"):?> <h1>YES</h1> <?php else:?> <h1>No</h1> <?php endif; ?>

However do I get the same result with the actual value '1' rather than "Yes"?
My client is thinking about going bilingual - so it won't work.

Thanks,

Robert

Hello

you can access the value like this
Code:
$field_id = 19; // Use in ITEM view / Category (multi-items) view $fvals = $item->fieldvalues[$field_id]; // or $items[$i] for category view

Thanks - that solved my issue.

Here is my final code:
Code:
<?php // Set Field ID $field_id = 30; // Use in ITEM view $fvals = $item->fieldvalues[$field_id]; if (!empty($fvals)) foreach ($fvals as $v) { if ( @unserialize($v)!== false || $v=== 'b:0;' ) $v = unserialize($v); } ?>

Execute if Yes
Code:
<?php if ($v == "1"):?> <h1>YES</h1> <?php else:?> <h1>No</h1> <?php endif; ?>

If we are using a checkbox - this seems to work.

For mod_flexicontent we should use: $item->_row->fieldvalues

Code:
<?php /* * ======================================================================= + SET TYPE OF NEWS CATEGORY * ======================================================================= */ // Set Field ID $field_id = 234; // SET NEWS TYPE $news_type = array(); // Use in ITEM view if(!empty($item->_row->fieldvalues[234])) { $fvals = $item->_row->fieldvalues[$field_id]; } //VALUE if (!empty($fvals)) foreach ($fvals as $v) { if ( @unserialize($v)!== false || $v=== 'b:0;' ) $v = unserialize($v); $news_type[] = $v; } ?>

To call it later in your template:
Code:
<?php echo implode(' ', $news_type);?>

FLEXIcontent now has the option of showing the value in the frontend vs the label:
