Group Field Output using CB Substitutions

1 month 2 weeks ago - 1 month 2 weeks ago #320989 by bizguy
I am trying to our put CB User Field Group data using substitutions. Unfortunately
https://www.joomlapolis.com/documentation/18353-using-substitutions-throughout-cb
doesn't address outputting Field Group data, or how to apply any formatting that is allowed.
I was able to output the raw data in the Field Group, by creating a separate tab, placing the group and fields in the tab, then outputting the tab, but the data is not formatted using
[cb:usertab tab="TAB_ID" user="REPLACEMENT" /]
as all the field options selected are output as one string.

Is there a way to access the individual items, or format the output?

Thanks,

Ed

I found I was able to output the Field Group data using the following
[cb:userfield field="FIELD_NAME" user="REPLACEMENT" /]
and style the data through CSS.

This question is solved enough.

Thanks,
Ed

Is there a way to access the individual items, or format the output?

Yes, you can substitute individual field group fields using the formatting explained format.

FIELD_NAME__INDEX__FIELD_NAME

The first field name is the name of your field group field. For example lets call it cb_fieldgroup. Next the index is the row in the field group field you want to access. The index always begins with 0. Finally the last field name is the name of the field in the field group field of the specified row that you want to substitute in. For example lets call this cb_text. This gives you the below.

cb_fieldgroup__0__cb_text

Used as a raw substitution you'd have the below.

[cb_fieldgroup__0__cb_text]

This should function anywhere substitutions are supported.
