Being able to group with datatype

Being able to group with datatype

Tuesday 16 December 2003 8:00:11 pm - 4 replies

I think it would be a good idea to be able to group results of a fetch command by attributes.

Exemple : if I want to have a calendar where I can specify the date of an event I should be able to do the same as in the blog Site with a custom date.

We should be able to do the same with the month_overview field parameter.

Im not clear on why you would want to make a calendar a datatype. Can you give better examples?

I don't want to make a calendar a datatype.

I'll explain myself better:

Right now, what I see from version 3.3.0-2 blog package in demo, we have the monthview.tpl navigator.

I want to be able to use that but not with the published date, with the use of a date datatype in the selected content object for instance a event content object.

I've tried, it works for showing the right event in the right page but I'm not able to have links on the calendar to the right days.

I hop it's clearer.

I'm not really shure but I think I tried to focus (perhaps a bit badly...) on something like this in this thread:

It can be accomplished by putting the attribute in the name pattern, a quite ugly hack:

I suppose the code could look like this:

sort_by,array('attribute',false(), 'my_own_attribute')

and it should work like sort_by name, published etc. (on all classes with that attribute).

I'm not really shure that I use the correct vocabulary, hopefolly you understand what I mean...

Any comments?
