I have a admin back-end options section/module to control few things like upload slider images, site background, banners etc. That is simple cause it just requires xml code in system.xml. I want to add different drop-downs, radio buttons, multiple select. I have the following code in Options.php Its giving me options to select one, two or three for every drop-down, radio or multi select. What I have to define here to get different options? not just one, two and Three.

    <?php
    class Options_CustomConfig_Model_Options
    {
      /**
       * Provide available options as a value/label array
       *
       * @return array
       */
      public function toOptionArray()
      {
        return array(
          array('value'=>1, 'label'=>'One'),
          array('value'=>2, 'label'=>'Two'),
          array('value'=>3, 'label'=>'Three')                   
        );
      }
    }

If I understand you correctly try this:

<?php
    class Options_CustomConfig_Model_Options
    {
      /**
       * Provide available options as a value/label array
       *
       * @return array
       */
      public function toOptionArray()
      {
        return array(
          array('value'=>1, 'label'=>'One'),
          array('value'=>2, 'label'=>'Two'),
          array('value'=>3, 'label'=>'Three'),

          array('value'=>4, 'label'=>'your_name'),
          array('value'=>5, 'label'=>'another_your_name')
          // you can keep adding these lines.
        );
      }
    }

Hope this helps.

update

Right, then add following in your system.xml file where needed:

<frontend_type>select</frontend_type>
<source_model>moduleName/path_to_your_file_option</source_model>

and now create a file called option.php (you can give your own name) in model/path_to_your_file and add following:

<?php
class NameSpace_ModuleName_Model_Path_To_Your_File_Option
{
    /**
   * Provide available options as a value/label array
   *
   * @return array
   */
  public function toOptionArray()
  {
    return array(
      array('value'=>1, 'label'=>'A'),
      array('value'=>2, 'label'=>'B'),
      array('value'=>3, 'label'=>'C')                   
    );
   }
}

PS File path is very important.

  • No, what i mean is to have more options not just one two three in all. For example if i want 3 different drop-downs lets say one has options like 10, 100, 1000. Another drop-down with different options like A, B, C. And another like Him, Her, Them. Understand? – mysticalghoul Aug 28 '15 at 5:53

  • No, I have all this already. Are you trying to say i should create another module with another Options.php? – mysticalghoul Aug 28 '15 at 6:02
  • You have to create diff files for those where you want different values in same module. – Adarsh Khatri Aug 28 '15 at 6:03
  • Well, That is another question. How? – mysticalghoul Aug 28 '15 at 6:21

For the a-hole who down voted.

enter image description here

in source_model customconfig/Optiontwo_options

-1

Ok so this is what needs to be done to get more options: I created another folder in Model called Optiontwo and inside Option.php. Class for options.php have to have folded in it like this: class CustomConfig_Model_Optiontwo_Options. And then in system.xml for source_model have to be declared like this: customconfig/Optiontwo_options

Thanks to Adrsh Khatri for pointing in the right direction.
