Drupal 7 calls to stdClass from inside and outside classes.

I have a call to 'stdClass' in my .module page. Which works fine. However when I put it in a Class method this produces an error. The fix was to put a forward slash infront of it. '/stdClass' Fixed.

JQuery on a form that sends to submit once all the fields are filled out

                              // All sections have been filled out
                // After this we'll then reveal the next section.

                    // has all fields got data in.  If so lets move on
                    if ( $("#edit-field-supplier-email-und-0-email").val() != '' && $("#edit-field-company-name-und-0-value").val() != '' && $("#edit-field-phone-number-und-0-value").val() != '' && $("#edit-field-post-code-und-0-value").val() != '' && $("#edit-field-supplier-email-und-0-email").val() != ''){

JQuery to check a Checkbox is filled out and then add a class to the parent Div.

I had a bit of a struggle with this simple bit of code. And that was because examples I'd found hadn't include the use of .each !!

Here's a couple of searches I'd made - 'javascript checkbox value checked then add class to parent' , 'jquery onload' and 'jquery check an object with no action'

The code that worked for me is as such


$("input[type=checkbox], input[type=radio]").each(function(){
                    console.log('loading checkbox object');
                    // is(':checked')

Drupal 7 Form API displaying only the Parent options in an Entity / Content Field item

So what I have is a Content Form where I want to display a Term / Taxonomy but only the Parent items for the moment.

Here's a way of solving this programmatically in a Hook Form Alter.

In my hook_form_FORM_ID_alter I iterate through the options array and remove the child choices. This is easy as those choices start with a minus sign .

  foreach ($form['my_field']['und']['#options'] as $key => $value) {
   // if $value starts with '-' then its a child item and I'll unset it.
    if ($value[0] == '-'){

Drupal 7 - Extending Push Notification Extended

The following is an extension to Push Notifications module in Drupal 7 to pass through extra data with the Payload.

This module is currently for testing purposes and can be called through the URL call to notifications/send_extend/%

Where % is the User Id of the user we'll be sending the notification to.

The change to the Payload array is in push_notifications_send_alert_extended .

Super Administration and Administration are the only roles allowed to visit the above link.

Module -> push_notifications_extend

Drupal 7 changing links of the fly in a Drupal Menu

This is a bit of hack but I thought I’d get it documented here anyway. Please for feel free to message me with better solutions for sorting this issue.

The reason you can’t do this with hook_menu_alter is that this method does not create the menu on the fly; as the menu is built and stored in cache.

Here in my code I’ve got a calculation that returns a NID that I want to replace with the default one that I have in the menu item.

So I’ve added this to the body class list and retrieve it in the Javascript.

 * Implements hook_preprocess_html()


function MODULE_preprocess_html(&$variables){

  global $user;

  drupal_add_js(drupal_get_path('module', 'MODULE') . '/js/');

// the method here calculates what Nid I need to direct what user too. 
    $getNid = SupplierFormHelpers::getNid($user->uid);

    $variables['classes_array'][] = 'ROLE-logged-in';
    $variables['classes_array'][] = $getNid;



and here's the Javascript file

 * @file
 * Javascript to replace NID with the one for the current User
(function ($) {

     * Process controls.
    Drupal.behaviors.moduleMenuOverrides = {

        attach: function (context) {

            // first of all lets place the number somewhere ( body class !! ) and retrieve that .

            if ($("body").hasClass("ROLE-logged-in")){

                var pageNid = 1;

               /* get the body class array and retrieve the next number along */
                var classList = $("body").attr('class').split(/\s+/);

                for (var i = 0; i < classList.length; i++) {
                    if (classList[i] === 'ROLE-logged-in') {
                        var i2 = i + 1;
                        pageNid = classList[i2];

                /* i now have the number I want to replace with - so let's do a swap */
                var editLink = '/node/' + pageNid + '/edit';
                var navigation = $("#block-system-navigation");
                    var html = $(this).html();
                    html = html.replace("/node/1/edit", roleLink);
