If a plugin requires additional setup by a user, then all necessary settings fields must be specified in plugin configuration file
lib/config/settings.php Creation of such a file for automatic generation of standard plugin settings interface is described in a separate article.
Custom settings page
Should you need to create a settings page completely different from the standard one suggested by Shop-Script, add the following parameter to configuration file
'custom_settings' => true,
PHP code for generation of the settings page must be written inside public method
execute() of class named
shop[Plugin_id]PluginSettingsAction extending base class
waViewAction and located in file
Accessing settings values
In the main plugin class you can access current settings values by calling method
$this->getSettings() and specifying the id of the desired settings field as its parameter:
$login = $this->getSettings('login');
For fields of type GROUPBOX, only the array of values is saved which have been selected (enabled) by user. Their list can be retrieved in the following way:
$statuses = $this->getSettings('statuses'); $statuses = $statuses ? array_keys($statuses) : null;
The values of individual subfields of a CONTACT type field can be retrieved via the values of '
value' elements specified in the '
options' array for such a settings field:
$personal_data = $this->getSettings('personal_data'); $email = $personal_data['email'];
