>
The TwistyPlugin gives you several options to control the appearance of a twisty:
 
  • use link text or buttons
  • position an icon left or right
  • remember the state at the next visit of the page
Line: 14 to 24
  Twisty has a fallback mechanism in case JavaScript is not available: all content is displayed and the control buttons are hidden.

Make it obey only the first time

Changed:

To let the Twisty start with its content folded open the first time the visitor sees the Twisty, add the parameter firststart="show". If remember="on" is used, subsequential visits to the page will display the Twisty according the cookie setting.

Other use: hide interface parts in case of no JavaScript

>
>

Other use: Hide interface if no JavaScript

  You can use Twisty to show interface elements that should only be visible with JavaScript enabled. For instance the textbox control buttons in the edit screen need JavaScript to work. If a visitor does not have JavaScript on it would not make sense to show these buttons.

Special syntax: format tokens

Added:

 If you use TWiki variables inside TWISTY parameters chances are it will mess up the variable, or the rendered html. Use format tokens to 'delay' rendering of these variables until the Twisty parameters are parsed.

The format tokens are the same as with FormattedSearch:

TwistyPlugin

A "twisty" is an interface toggle control to show and hide content.

Line: 12 to 12
 
  • use a span or div for the content
  • set a class for the content span or div
Changed:
<
<
Twisty has a fallback mechanism in case JavaScript is not available: all content is displayed and the control buttons are hidden. Unless parameter noscript="hide" is used to specifically set the content to hide.

What's new in version 1.2:
  • New variables to set default values: TWISTYSHOWLINK, TWISTYHIDELINK, TWISTYMODE, TWISTYREMEMBER
  • Property id is no longer required as this is automatically set (still recommended in some cases with remember="on")
  • Property value remember="off" will clear a previously stored setting
  • New properties prefix and suffix
  • JavaScript to collapse or expand all Twisties on the page

Special syntax: format tokens

If you use TWiki variables inside TWISTY parameters chances are it will mess up the variable, or the rendered html. Use format tokens to 'delay' rendering of these variables until the Twisty parameters are parsed.

The format tokens are the same as with FormattedSearch:

Escape: Expands To:
$n or $n() New line. Use $n() if followed by alphanumeric character, e.g. write Foo$n()Bar instead of Foo$nBar
$nop or $nop() Is a "no operation".
$quot Double quote (")
$percnt Percent sign (%)
$dollar Dollar sign ($)

For example, to show an icon inside the link, do not write:

link="%Y%"

but use format tokens:

link="$percntY$percnt"

... to get:

DONE DONE
<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Or a more complex example using SpreadsheetPlugin; do not write:

link="Count: (%CALC{"$GET(infoCount)"}%)"

but use format tokens:

link="Count: ($percntCALC{$quot$dollarGET(infoCount)$quot}$percnt)"

TwistyPlugin

A "twisty" is an interface toggle control to show and hide content.

TwistyPlugin gives you several options to control the appearance of a twisty:

  • use link text or buttons
  • position an icon left or right
  • remember the state at the next visit of the page
  • start the Twisty open or closed
  • start the Twisty open or closed for the first visit
  • use a span or div for the content
  • set a class for the content span or div

Twisty has a fallback mechanism in case JavaScript is not available: all content is displayed and the control buttons are hidden. Unless parameter noscript="hide" is used to specifically set the content to hide.

What's new in version 1.2:
  • New variables to set default values: TWISTYSHOWLINK, TWISTYHIDELINK, TWISTYMODE, TWISTYREMEMBER
  • Property id is no longer required as this is automatically set (still recommended in some cases with remember="on")
  • Property value remember="off" will clear a previously stored setting
  • New properties prefix and suffix
  • JavaScript to collapse or expand all Twisties on the page

Usage examples

Triad

A Twisty consists of 3 elements:
  1. Show button
  2. Hide button
  3. Collapsing content ('Toggle')

The typical TwistyPlugin triad will look like this (pseudo code):

%TWISTYSHOW{}% %TWISTYHIDE{}%
(there may be other things between buttons and content)
%TWISTYTOGGLE{}% my content %ENDTWISTYTOGGLE%

Working Twisty

The Twisty triad is conveniently packed into shorthand %TWISTY{some parameters}% Collapsing content %ENDTWISTY%:

%TWISTY{showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

It will look like this:

Show... Hide

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Twisty with icons

We will use mode="div" to put the collapsing content below the button.

%TWISTY{mode="div" showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide"
showimgleft="%ICONURLPATH{toggleopen-small}%" 
hideimgleft="%ICONURLPATH{toggleclose-small}%"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

It will look like this:

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

To put icons at the right side, write

%TWISTY{mode="div" showlink="Show&nbsp;" hidelink="Hide&nbsp;"
showimgright="%ICONURLPATH{toggleopen-small}%" 
hideimgright="%ICONURLPATH{toggleclose-small}%"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Make it remember

To store the last state in a TWIKIPREF cookie, add the parameter remember="on".
To test this, reload the page after toggling.

%TWISTY{showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" remember="on"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Show... Hide

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

If a Twisty state has been stored in a TWIKIPREF cookie before, it can be cleared by using remember="off":

%TWISTY{showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" remember="off"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Show... Hide

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

NOTE: Twisty ids are generated automatically. If you need control over exactly which Twisty should be remembered, add the parameter id:

%TWISTY{id="currentCustomerList" showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" remember="on"}%
my customer list
%ENDTWISTY%

Make it obey

To let the Twisty start with its content folded open, add parameter start="show".

%TWISTY{showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" start="show"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Show... Hide

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Likewise use start="hide" to start with hidden content.

%TWISTY{showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" start="hide"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Show... Hide

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Make it obey only the first time

To let the Twisty start with its content folded open the first time the visitor sees the Twisty, add the parameter firststart="show". If remember="on" is used, subsequential visits to the page will display the Twisty according the cookie setting.

%TWISTY{showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" firststart="show"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Show... Hide

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Other use: hide interface parts in case of no JavaScript

You can use Twisty to show interface elements that should only be visible with JavaScript enabled. For instance the textbox control buttons in the edit screen need JavaScript to work. If a visitor does not have JavaScript on it would not make sense to show these buttons.

Put the "JavaScript content" in an almost bare bones Twisty. Write showlink="" hidelink="" to not display any default link texts.

%TWISTY{link="" noscript="hide" start="show"}%
<input type="submit" class="twikiButton" value="You surely have !JavaScript" />
%ENDTWISTY%

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Do not forget to set start="show" to show the Twisty content at all.

When JavaScript is off, the button should be invisible.

This code will show the button when JavaScript is off:

%TWISTY{link="" start="show"}%
<input type="submit" class="twikiButton" value="You surely have !JavaScript" />
%ENDTWISTY%

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Styling the Twisty

Use parameter class to style the content div or class:

%TWISTY{mode="div" showlink="Show..." hidelink="Hide" class="twikiHelp"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Generates:

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

Twisty headers

To be able to use header tags like <h2>, use the properties prefix and suffix. Because we have identical show and hide links we can use the shorthand property link.

%TWISTY{prefix="<h4>!!" link="Header"
showimgleft="%ICONURLPATH{toggleopen}%"
hideimgleft="%ICONURLPATH{toggleclose}%" suffix="</h4>"}%
my twisty content
%ENDTWISTY%

Will create:

!! Header Header

<--/twistyPlugin twikiMakeVisibleInline-->
my twisty content
<--/twistyPlugin-->

All on, all off

You can toggle all Twisties on or off at once by putting a link or button on the page with class twistyExpandAll or twistyCollapseAll.

<button class="twistyExpandAll twikiButton">Expand all</button> 
<button class="twistyCollapseAll twikiButton">Collapse all</button>

Creates these controls:

When you want to use links, write:

#VarTOGGLE

<a href="#TOGGLE" class="twistyExpandAll">Expand all</a> 
<a href="#TOGGLE" class="twistyCollapseAll">Collapse all</a>

Expand all Collapse all
