    Now that we've got a handle on creating handlers,
  • 0:07
    we're going to take a look at creating a filter handler.
  • 0:09
    In this chapter, we're going to create a new set of filter options for the numeric fields in Views.
  • 0:15
    By default, the numeric field filter provides a list of options like
  • 0:21
    this value is greater than, or this value is equal to.
  • 0:24
    We're going to add a filter that will allow us to filter out all rows that are not an even number.
  • 0:30
    This is not something that exists in Views by default,
  • 0:33
    so we're going to have to create a new handler to provide that option

    Agora que já tratamos da criação de handlers,
  • 0:07
    iremos dar uma olhada na criação de um filter handler.
  • 0:09
    Nesse capítulo, iremos criar um novo junto de opções de filtro para fields numéricos em Views.
  • 0:15
    Por padrão, o filtro de field numérico fornece uma lista de opções como
  • 0:21
    esse valor é maior que, ou esse é valor é igual a.
  • 0:24
    Iremos adicionar um filtro que nos permitirá filtrar todas as linhas que não são um número par.
  • 0:30
    Isso não é algo que existe por padrão em Views,
  • 0:33
    então teremos que criar um novo handler para fornecer essa opção

Writing Custom Filter Handlers

Loading...

In this lesson Joe takes a look at writing a custom filter handler by building on the knowledge gained about writing handlers from the previous lessons. Filter handlers control how data in a table is treated when being used in the context of a views filter including things like how the data is represented, what the form for filtering looks like and more.
