ocPortal ::: version 6.0 beta2
theme ::: User theme
template ::: BLOCK_MAIN_SEARCH



Any ideas as to why the 'close/expand' image refuses to display?

You've coded it under the 'IF' directive rather than the 'BOX' directive. I can't remember the exact place it has to go in the 'BOX' directive off-hand though.

Bummer!

Nearly cracked it, but 'tempcode' has defeated me …
  • edited BLOCK_MAIN_SEARCH.tpl (line 1) to read this way, moving the tray_closed directive from IF to BOX:

  • Yay! It looked a success …

  • Naaaaay! Freaking disaster …


There's something about the tempcode syntax that I have obviously overlooked, and it is slightly beyond my comprehension as to where each element ought to appear in the correct order.

BTW, I tried several different 'placements' of the tray_closed directive in the template, including adding and removing braces, but this was the closest I got to success -  (no idea what the commas do)!


Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Looks very close. Try removing the '}' after 'tray_closed'. You may also need to remove one of the commas after that, not sure.

OK, for anybody that is following this thread, here are the edits to BLOCK_MAIN_SEARCH
  • Removing only the '}' after tray_closed gave the display on the right
  • Removing the '}' and ONE of the THREE commas gave the result on the left
  • Removing the '}' and TWO or ALL of the 3 commas gave the display on the right


My preference was not to have the [More options] link showing so I've gone with the first option above. Your take might differ, but at least you now know what editing the TEMPCODE in a template can achieve!

Thanks, Chris.
