ampersand-checkbox-view

6.1.0 • Public • Published

ampersand-checkbox-view

Lead Maintainer: Michael Garvin

overview

A view module for intelligently rendering and validating checkbox input. Works well with ampersand-form-view.

ampersand-checkbox-view extends ampersand-view, so you may further .extend({...}) it to your desire.

It does the following:

  • Automatically shows/hides error message based on if the field is required.
  • Will only show error message checkbox is required and:
    • trying to submit form and it's not checked.
    • it has ever been checked and now isn't.

Part of the Ampersand.js toolkit for building clientside applications.

install

npm install ampersand-checkbox-view

example

var CheckboxView = require('ampersand-checkbox-view');
 
var field = new CheckboxView({
    // form input `name`
    name: 'client_name',
    // You can replace the built-in template with your own.
    // just give it an html string. Make sure it has a single "root" element that contains:
    //  - an `<input>` element
    //  - an element with a `data-hook="label"` attribute
    //  - an element with a `data-hook="message-container"` attribute (this we'll show/hide)
    //  - an elememt with a `data-hook="message-text"` attribute (where message text goes for error)
    template: // some HTML string
    // Label name
    label: 'App Name',
    // optinal intial value if it has one
    value: true, // or false
    // optional, this is the element that will be
    // replaced by this view. If you don't
    // give it one, it will create one.
    el: document.getElementByID('field'),
    // whether or not this field is required
    required: true, // false by default
    // whether or not to disable this field
    disabled: false, //false by default
    // class to set on input when input is valid
    validClass: 'input-valid', // <- that's the default
    // class to set on input when input is valid
    invalidClass: 'input-invalid', // <- that's the default
    // Message to use if error is that it's required
    // but no value was set.
    requiredMessage: 'This box must be checked.',
    // optional, you can pass in the parent view explicitly
    parent:  someViewInstance,
    // optional, called before form's submitCallback function called
    beforeSubmit: function() { console.log('ampersand-checkbox-view rocks!'); }
});
 
// append it somewhere or use it in side an ampersand-form-view
document.querySelector('form').appendChild(field.el);
