Grid

The grid fieldtype is a meta fieldtype, a fieldtype that serves as a container for more fieldtypes. Think of Grid as a spreadsheet, where each column contains any fieldtype, including another Grid. We lovingly refer to these as Inception Grids. Let's go deeper.

Data Structure

The Grid field creates a YAML collection (associative array).

Templating

The example above would have the following data which can be looped through as a tag pair with access to the column data as variables.

cast:
  -
    actor: Mark Hamill
    character: Luke Skywalker
  -
    actor: Harrison Ford
    character: Han Solo
<h3>Star Wars Cast</h3>
<ul>
    {{ cast }}
        <li>{{ character }} played by {{ actor }}</li>
    {{ /cast }}
</ul>
<h3>Star Wars Cast</h3>
<ul>
    <li>Luke Skywalker played by Mark Hamill</li>
    <li>Han Solo played by Harrison Ford</li>
</ul>

Settings

This fieldtype supports the following settings in addition to the defaults.

min_rows

integer 0

The minimum number of required rows.

max_rows

integer

The maximum number of rows allowed. Once reached the Add Row button will disappear.

fields

array

A list of fields, each of which create their own column.

mode

string table

The Grid is displayed as a table by default. If you have a large number of columns it can get pretty crowded. Choose stacked mode to group rows similar to Replicator. When Sneak Peek is enabled, Grids automatically toggle into stacked mode.

add_row

string

The Add Row button's label.
