Hika Price Calculator User Manual

12 - Using themes - HPC

Themes, which are only available in the HikaPrice Calculator paid(PRO) version, allow you to customize the graphics look of the calculator, using HTML/CSS coding.
Available themes are either made by using Bootstrap and Uikit or without using any frameworks.

Example themes are located in: “/administrator/components/com_hikapricecalculator/resources/themes”

Available themes are:

  • example.php: It's a simple example, just iterate through all fields and print them
  • example_bootstrap.php: How to use Bootstrap. Bootstrap is autoloaded with WPC
  • example_custom.php: It's a more advanced custom theme, you can edit every field aspect
  • example_uikit.php: How to use UIkit. Uikit is autoloaded with WPC

If you want to use an example just copy the file you want through FTP from the folder: "/administrator/components/com_hikapricecalculator/resources/themes" to "/media/com_hikapricecalculator/themes"

If you want a new theme from scratch, create a new file in: “/media/com_hikapricecalculator/themes”

like "your_theme.php". A theme is set up like this:

/* THEME_NAME: Your Theme Name */
?> <h2>This is a template example</h2> <div class="wpc-product-form"> <div class="awspc-output-product"> <?php echo $this->view['outputResults']; ?> </div> <table> <?php foreach($this->view['data'] as $key => $data): ?> <tr class="awspc-field-row" data-field-id="<?php echo $data['field']->id; ?>" style="<?php echo ($this->view['conditionalLogic'][$data['field']->id] == true)?"":"display:none"; ?>"> <td id="<?php echo $data['labelId']; ?>"> <?php echo $this->userTrans($data['field']->label); ?> </td> <td id="<?php echo $data['inputId']; ?>"> <?php echo $data['widget']; ?> </td> </tr> <?php endforeach; ?> </table> </div>

In "Your Theme Name" type a name because this will be used to identify the theme in the backend of Wordpress (Themes field in your calculator settings).

You can iterate through the calculator fields as follow:

<?php foreach($this->view['data'] as $field): ?>
	//Your code here
<?php endforeach; ?>

If you want to print the field label:

<?php echo $field['field']->label; ?>

To translate the field labels or other things as described in the "Translations" chapter:

<?php echo $this->userTrans("language_key"); ?>

You can draw the whole field using:

<?php echo $field['widget']; ?>

You can draw the default autogenerated calculator view. This is useful if you don't want to redraw it:

<?php echo $this->view['defaultView']; ?>

You can check if the field should be displayed by the conditional logic:

if($this->view['conditionalLogic'][$data['field']->id] == true){
	//Display the field
	//Hide the field

The fields used can be defined through HTML:

  • Checkbox:
    <input type="checkbox" id="aws_price_calc_n" class="aws_price_calc_checkbox" />
  • Numeric:
    <input type=”input” id=”aws_price_calc_n” name=”aws_price_calc_n” class=”aws_price_calc_numeric” />
