Displaying Name Field

Displaying Name Field was created by raunhar
I am using SchuWeb Birthday Module with Community Builder.
The module was successfully integrated with CB, but there is one issue.
The site is for a school.
It is picking the username field to display the name, I want to use the Name field to be picked for displaying the name.
And along with the name, I want to show the Name of the Student along with the Class, in which the student is studying.
Please suggest

We're not the developers of that module. You'll need to contact them regarding its usage. They should update their module to properly use the formatname field.

Hi @krileon,

thank you for the hint. currently we use

$config = \CBLib\Application\Application::Config();
switch ($config["name_format"]) {

did the field name change.
Need to test with the newest CB version.

We've added a function to the CB user object to output formatted names instead of having to use getFields API so you can use the following to do this.

Viewing User Name
$name = CBuser::getMyUserDataInstance()->getFormattedName();

Specific User Name
$name = CBuser::getUserDataInstance( USER_ID_HERE )->getFormattedName();

It's best to use the CBuser API since we've caching built into it to prevent hitting the database over and over for user details. This API can be used after importing CBs API as shown in the following documentation.

www.joomlapolis.com/documentation/279-community-builder/tutorials/18357-including-cb-api-for-usage-outside-of-cb

If your extension needs to access other fields values then be sure to use our getFields API as documented below.

Thank you, I didn't touch the implementation for a while. I will take a look.
