How to Access

Select Components → Contact Enhanced → Custom Values from the drop-down menu on the back-end of your Joomla! installation. This option is only available if you have a SQL Form Field type.

Description

The Form Fields Manager screen allows you to create advanced Form Fields using the SQL Form Field type, which displays a Select dropdown with values from the database. Some users might want to add the values to a new database table, that's why we've created the Custom Values;

Details
  • Text: The text the user will see in the dropdown select list (required);

  • Value: The text that you will get in the email (required);
  • Type: You can enter any value to help you to keep things organized;

  • Category: You can use this field as you wish; You can enter a value or select one from the list; IMPORTANT: This is not necessary related to the Contact Enhanced Categories;

 

SQL Field Examples:

  • Nothing fancy:
    SELECT text, value FROM #__contact_enhanced_cv WHERE category = 'MY_CATEGORY_NAME_OR_ID' ORDER BY ordering
  • Same content for the value and text:
    SELECT text, text as value FROM #__contact_enhanced_cv WHERE category = 'MY_CATEGORY' AND TYPE='Any type' ORDER BY ordering
  • If you have a small SQL knowledge you can play around with it. Let's say that you need to show the part number and product name, you your SQL will be like this:
    SELECT CONCAT_WS(' :: ',value, text) AS text, value FROM #__contact_enhanced_cv WHERE category = 'MY_CATEGORY_NAME_OR_ID' ORDER BY orderingSELECT CONCAT_WS(' :: ',value, text) AS text, value FROM #__contact_enhanced_cv WHERE category = 'MY_CATEGORY_NAME_OR_ID' ORDER BY ordering
  • Same content for the value and text:
    SELECT text, text as value FROM #__contact_enhanced_cv WHERE category = 'MY_CATEGORY' AND TYPE='Any type' ORDER BY ordering
  • Get a backend userlist:
    SELECT username AS value, name AS text FROM #__users WHERE gid >=23 ORDER BY name ASC
  • Get data when the user is logged in:
    Get user id:

    SELECT id AS value, id AS text
    FROM #__users
    WHERE id = {user_id}


    Get user name:
    SELECT username AS value, username AS text
    FROM #__users
    WHERE id = {user_id}

    SELECT 	CONCAT('Product: ', p.product_sku
    		,' Order#: ',	o.order_number
    		,' Total: ',o.order_total) AS text,
    	CONCAT('Product:',p.virtuemart_product_id,' - ', p.product_sku
    		,' :: Order ID:', o.virtuemart_order_id 
    		,' Date: ', FROM_UNIXTIME(o.created_on)
    		,', Status: ', os.order_status_name) AS value
    FROM #__virtuemart_orders AS o
