Set default date for zul datebox - datebox

I inherited a legacy website written in old zul and have to add new datebox component for birthday datepicker.
Have added a constraint to accept dates before a given date but that triggers an error alertbox from start as the date presented/selected by default on the datepicker is today.
I wouldn't want to use a workaround but to all due respect it seems like this is something over the top feature I'm looking for in zk's reality:
The main showcase for zul does include a birthday datebox, but pretty lame as it doesn't contain any constrain on age.
There is zk fiddler to show how the before constrain works, but that just proves my point that it doesn't select the first proper date for default date at least, if there is no clean way of setting it.
There is forum post that proposes a workaround to set the default year, so Zk is most probably incapable of doing this without a workaround.
There is an open ZK Jira issue from 2017 that addresses somewhat this issue, with a proposed solution pretty much the same as the workaround mentioned in the above point - so the hope is kinda lost, have to go on the workaround route.
I did try that workaround (after the forum post, as that has default year), but the workaround doesn't work for me. It does execute the
And I see that the value is set into the datebox's _pop/_value and _pop/_end nodes but no difference is visible on the datepicker box, still today is preselected altough it is greyed out - so no effect.
Still, when I try it in a fiddle with version, the oldest engine that exists, it does work, but not locally with v5.0.11.
In the buglist for this version there is no mention of datebox. Tried to look into to some bugs that might be interfering but turns out it was just another episode of me wasting time with this.
Tried in the 5.0.11 sandbox and it doesnt work with that version. The structure of how I use it is imitated in the linked fiddler. Hints on a workaround that works on this version?

ZK 5.0.11 is a bit on the older side currently, so it might not accept exactly the same overrides as later versions. If I understand the issue correctly, it boils down to either
1 - setting a value before Datebox is rendered to have a "initial date" opened in calendar.
I'd say that's the easy way out, since you can use either composing or databinding to set the value of the datebox during page rendering. Here's a small sample using databinding and zscripts, but the same logic should apply from composer with setValue(). You mentioned that this doesn't work for you locally with 5.0.11 though. Can you share the code that you are using for this? Sample code here in fiddle I can run it on local 5.0.11, and it set the date before popup is opened.
2 - setting an initial date (which doesn't affect the selected value) but would be the target for the opened calendar.
This is not a default ZK 5 behavior for datebox. If you want that effect, you would need to customize it using an override script. Simplest way in can think of in ZK 5 is to use the open event of the datebox popup here's an example of what it would look like (package in a script tag in a single page for the example, would use a global js file for real deployement) example here


Manual summary separator becomes HUGOMORE42 with blogdown

I just updated my version of hugo to 0.53 (from a rather old 0.21) and one of the consequences of the update is that string
that was previously used for identifying the end of the blog post summary is now replaced with the string HUGOMORE42. Also, the summary end is not correctly triggered.
Can anyone point me in a direction to fix this? If I downgrade to an earlier version of HUGO then the problem disappears, so I'm guessing it is an identifier that was changed along the way.
I tried with my old version of the default hugo-lithium-theme and with another theme. It might be a problem with the theme, but if that is the case where can I fix that? (I have various local modifications of the theme in layouts that might be the culprits).
Googling HUGOMORE42 yield quite a number of webpages that appear to have the same problem so that is not that useful.

max-pool-size is invalid in combination with derive-size

For the last couple of days I’ve been battling with an issue which I believe is derived from a change in the source code in Thorntail and unfortunately this code doesn’t appear to be publically available.
The error I’ve been receiving is this:
"WFLYCTL0105: max-pool-size is invalid in combination with derive-size".
Previously you could just leave a “derive-size” out of the configuration and there wasn’t an issue however now anytime I’ve included the “max-pool-size” no matter what the combination with “derive-size” it fails with the above mentioned error.
From the latest Thorntail dococumentation:
Specifies if and what the max pool size should be derived from. An
undefined value (or the deprecated value 'none' which is converted to
undefined) indicates that the explicit value of max-pool-size should
be used.
This is what I had previously in WildFly project-defaults.yml which worked perfectly fine:
default-resource-adapter-name: activemq-rar.rar
default-mdb-instance-pool: mdb-strict-max-pool
max-pool-size: 1
Any ideas or examples would be greatly appreciated.
More information added in response to questions:
The project was updated from using WildFly Swarm 2018.4.1 to use Thorntail 2.2.0.Final.
The code that appears to have changed in Thorntail is below:
OLD code:
.strictMaxBeanInstancePool(new StrictMaxBeanInstancePool("mdb-strict-max-pool").maxPoolSize(20).timeout(5L).timeoutUnit(StrictMaxBeanInstancePool.TimeoutUnit.MINUTES))
New Code:
.strictMaxBeanInstancePool(new StrictMaxBeanInstancePool("mdb-strict-max-pool").deriveSize(StrictMaxBeanInstancePool.DeriveSize.FROM_CPU_COUNT).timeout(5L).timeoutUnit(StrictMaxBeanInstancePool.TimeoutUnit.MINUTES))
If anyone has a link to the above source code that would be great. The only links I can find appear to be from JBOSS so the code looks like it was ported accross and not made publicly avaiable.
After the question update: the default configuration of a couple of fractions was changed to better align with default configuration in WildFly 11. You can configure derive-size: null and then the max-pool-size should take effect.
Something like:
default-resource-adapter-name: activemq-rar.rar
default-mdb-instance-pool: mdb-strict-max-pool
derive-size: null
max-pool-size: 1
(Note: previously, this answer recommended setting derive-size: none, but that doesn't work. After the discussion in comments, I changed the answer to recommend derive-size: null, which does work.)

How to add a custom field into template.php using Zen sub theme

First time poster here, I'm a designer not skilled at all with php and I have a small issue I don't seem to be able to solve. I'm making a site in drupal 7 using a sub theme on zen.
Btw this is a great CMS, even though people say it's really more a developers CMS. I have no trouble to do what I need using views, rules, display suite etc. So a big thank you for all the developers out there making this such a good CMS. But for this apparently simple problem... no module will help me (I think) and I'm kinda stuck.
So here it is: I'd like to add a subtitle next to the title in all my pages.
So what I did was to add a custom field into the content type basic page (machine name: field_sub_title) which is a simple text field.
I uncommented the following line in my template.php
function mytheme_preprocess_page(&$variables, $hook) {
$variables['sub_title'] = t('field_sub_title');
Now my question is how do I load the content of my custom field into that variable?
I know i need to change the second part, but I don't have a clue as into what I need to change this.
Displaying the variable into the the page.tpl.php is something I know about so I only need help with the first part.
Ok I found how to do this :)
I was looking for a solution in the wrong place. I don't need to change any thing in the template.php file.
Just needed to add this bit of code into my page.tpl.php:
print $node->field_sub_title['und'][0]['value'];
So I'm posting this here for other Drupal newbies struggling with this....
Your solution may work for now, but there may be a more Drupal-y way to handle a problem like this. If you haven't noticed any problems yet, you may find one or more of the following issues down the road:
Someone who doesn't know php or Drupal theming may need to change the way this works.
If you're like me, you may forget where exactly in code this was implemented.
You may see superfluous markup and/or errors on nodes (content) that do not have this sub-title field (ie. event content not having a sub-title field while basic pages and news articles do).
When you add a field to a content type, it will automatically appear anytime content in that content type is displayed. You should be able to add the sub-title field for your page, event or whatever else you need and have it automatically appear in the markup.
You can 'manage display' of a content type to drag and drop the order for fields to appear. You could take it a step further by using a module like Display Suite to add formatting or layout per-content type.
If you feel like this isn't good enough and the markup for the subtitle must be at the same level as the page title (which is rare), at least add an if statement to make your code check to see if the variable is present before trying to print it. I'd also add a new variable and comments for code readability.
$subtitle = $node->field_sub_title['und'][0]['value'];
print $subtitle;
Consider using field_get_items or field_view_value, or at least use the LANGUAGE_NONE constant instead of 'und'
See and!field!field.module/function/field_view_value/7
This has the added benefit of reducing the number of potential security holes you create.

Dojo : FilteringSelect : problems with coming back to valid state

I've came across this issue today and I think I might need some help. We are using 1.6.1 version of Dojo, but this is cross version issue.
Steps to reproduce the following issue are pretty simple:
click the dojo doc link for Filtering Select dijit.form.FilteringSelect
On the documentation page, click the first FilteringSelect sample
In the Codeglass window sample, click the filteringselect and add "x" to "California", thus bringing it to invalid state
While focused, delete the "x" letter.
and here comes the problem. Technically the value is correct, but the dijit is still like in error state (unless it loses focus).
I'd like to get the dijit react and render correctly straightaway I delete the character causing the invalid state without losing focus.
Any ideas for the workaround?
Thank you.
ok. for eveyryone else interested the solution was 'quite' simple, just use the dijit.form.FilteringSelect._refreshState() .The underscore prefix is might not be someone's cup of tea but that was the only way to get it in correct state.
in our case it was a bit tricky as we are using the wrapped in our own object and I needed the proper trigger which I've found in connecting to onComplete event of the inherited fetch() method.

ATK4 How to use treeview

How to use treeview e. g. as sidebar?
There are no standard element. You can build your own View. Look in other projects for some implementation or use jsTree
It seems there is an add on that is exactly for what you are looking for listed on the website.
At least it seems that way according to the description.
Its located under development and add-ons.
I'm thinking about trying the framework myself so I have no idea if this will work for you or not.
I noted there is a file atk4/lib/TreeView.php which extends Lister
It appears to be a bit old as it has hardcoded paths to the icon images for + and - as amodules3/templates/kt2/ which in agiletoolkit 4.1.1 is /atk4/templates/shared/images but maybe you can try adding this to a page and see what it does.
From the comments at the top, looks like it needed a mysql table with a primary key called ID and another column in the same table called parent_id which would provide the values and probably in order to display text strings would probably need another column called name in the same way refModel works.
If you decide to try and get it working, maybe you can post it back to Romans to update in ATK4.1
