# Jul 13th 2021, 11:46 caseyw Yeah, sorry I was just meaning an example. In our system as new themes are created an old one is typically duplicated and some things change while most remain the same. I was hoping to have a dynamic way of calling the plugin specific constant without having to know the name of the Plugin itself. Someone messaged me and said App::path() might help to know the plugin dynamically, but I don't see how that would. Anyway, this is
# Jul 13th 2021, 11:42 dereuromark No, not with constants. They usually use ClassName::CONST_NAME syntax, which requires use statements. You could build a helper that does that though. Thats how I wrapped some things like Configure to be more easily accessible in the view (See Shim plugin).
# Jul 13th 2021, 11:19 caseyw Ok, thanks. As far as accessing the class is there a way to initialize it into the view to make use easier? $this->ConstantClass->MARK ?
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:41 dereuromark this is quite a specific case. I guess you could create some ConstantInterface that defines those, if there are different groups I suggest naming the interfaces accordingly.
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:39 caseyw Hello all! I’m our software we have a number of plugins our team has made for mainly new themes, etc. im looking to create some constants on the plugin level to share in the ctp files of the plugin who owns it. Where’s the best place to setup general plugin specific constants? Im doing away with a bunch of magic numbers, etc. this is in Cake 3.9.
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:19 paolo.bragagni probably I'm done
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:16 paolo.bragagni mmm didnt understand
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:15 dereuromark just remember all aliases you encountered, as they must be unique.
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:15 paolo.bragagni I could cycle in associations but I'd like to make one only cicle
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:14 paolo.bragagni how to know if the relation is BelongsToMany or HasMany in the cycle?
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:14 dereuromark @erwane on the other side. Why does it need special ones? invalid syntax ignore maybe, but otherwise: as long as the same Type class is reading it again it shouldn't be a big deal
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:13 paolo.bragagni and then it cyclea trough {% for alias, details in relations %}
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:13 paolo.bragagni there is {% set relations = associations.BelongsToMany|merge(associations.HasMany) %}
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:13 paolo.bragagni in view.twig
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:13 paolo.bragagni cant go ahead in my problem.. :S
# Jul 13th 2021, 10:12 dereuromark @erwane sounds like it, yeah
# Jul 13th 2021, 09:50 charolastra sorry, looks like i've forgot to update setPrimaryKey()
# Jul 13th 2021, 09:44 charolastra on a table with a composite key consiting of 3 fields a newEntity->save() updates an existent entity (where the 3rd key component is a boolean) instead of persisting the new one. not even doing something like $newScreening = $screening. what's going on?
# Jul 13th 2021, 09:29 erwane Hi. It's a good idea to PR the `Database\Type\JsonType::toDatabase()` to allows options for json_encode like ` ```JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE + JSON_INVALID_UTF8_IGNORE + JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES``` Maybe via static `JsonType::setJsonEncodeOptions(int value)`
# Jul 12th 2021, 20:24 kevin.pfeifer oh wow, the cookbook is build via the python library `cakephpsphinx` :cold_sweat:
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:59 tyler.adam.lazenby are you using cannoical links with your cakephp website?
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:57 tyler.adam.lazenby the company name is deprecated btw, so don't @ me for that
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:57 tyler.adam.lazenby ```if ($this->request->is(['POST', 'PUT'])) { $data = $this->request->getData(); $data['account_id'] = $current_user->account_id; $data['company_name'] = $current_user->account->name; $data['token'] = Security::randomString();``` ...
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:57 tyler.adam.lazenby well this way works for now
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:56 kevin.pfeifer or jsut a Table method if its just for 1 table/entity type
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:56 kevin.pfeifer you could make a behavior which populates you empty entites with a given set of default data
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:55 kevin.pfeifer well the default `newEmptyEntity` method just creates a new entity object of whatever is given to it so no default data there
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:55 cnizzardini there are times where automated jobs or events trigger stuff though :man-shrugging:
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:54 cnizzardini or doing things
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:54 cnizzardini its not the worst thing, generally you only want a single source for creating things
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:53 kevin.pfeifer maybe some other MVC gurus can give you other insights of why this needs to be done this way
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:52 cnizzardini there is no way to call entity->isNew() or whatever from there to isolate it to new creations
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:52 kevin.pfeifer :)
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:52 kevin.pfeifer It would also be nice if the cakephp book would “remember” where I was when switching from 3 to 4 Like https://book.cakephp.org/3/en/orm/table-objects.html and then clicking on the 4.x link at the top right should lead me to https://book.cakephp.org/4/en/orm/table-objects.html
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:52 tyler.adam.lazenby I just hate it
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:52 tyler.adam.lazenby Kevin you might be right here
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:51 tyler.adam.lazenby gosh dang it
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:51 tyler.adam.lazenby lets see if update changes the value
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:50 tyler.adam.lazenby hmmm
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:50 tyler.adam.lazenby except
# Jul 12th 2021, 19:50 cnizzardini cool, again, id test various scenarios with that
