nathancox/textfieldgroup

A super simple convenience module for displaying text and textfields inline in the CMS

dev-master 2013-09-09 03:51 UTC

README

This is intended to make any combination of text fields and labels on a single line. Eg for URLSegments prepended by the domain as a label, or for X, Y and Z coordinates for a single location.

The differences from FieldGroup are a) it takes away the minimum width of fields so things are spaced approriately; and b) if you pass in a string instead of a field it's automatically turned in to a LiteralField

No dramatic functionality, just a convenience class for formatting.

Currently being developed on SilverStripe 3, not tested on 2.x yet.
