yes, Magento 2 still allows you to define the default values inside a configuration file.
Check your Deployment Mode it is in Production.
To enable the developer tab menu under the Advanced You need to change it to Developer Mode
So run this command : php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer
Clear the cache by running this command : php bin/magento cache:clean
Now check Go to admin ->logged in ->click on stores
I think <frontend_model> works for you as like Magento1
<field id="recipient_email" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="10" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
<label>Send Emails To</label>
As @Cags said, this is not (easily) possible because the ACL tree is loaded when the session is initialized (AKA when the admin logs in).
A possible workaround would be to override the _isSectionAllowed method in system configuration controller: (Mage_Adminhtml_System_ConfigController::_isSectionAllowed) and make it reload the ACL tree.
If you add the following in your system.xml
Then create the following file:
class Namespace_Module_Block_Adminhtml_System_Config_Date extends ...
I'm not sure about EE, but in CE this is a vestigial tag from a never completed help system. The intent appears to have been to give each form field in the System configuration section a small "hint", or help text.
The help text is added when the field element is created
$hint = (string)$...
Create a function for getting configuration values in your custom module's helper.
public function getConfig($config_path)
and call anywhere you want for example in test.phtml
$moduleStatus = $this->...
You can apply validation on textbox in magento 2 like this,
<field id="custom_path" translate="label comment" type="text" sortOrder="4" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="0" showInStore="0">
<label>Custom Admin Path</label>
<comment>You will have to sign in after ...
Reason for The Issue
So, user can create as many key ==> value pair matching as they want.
For this I would recommend the "Array" frontend and backend models, which work similar to the tier price definition in products. You would create a matrix with 2 columns that can easily be transformed to a key=>value map if needed. With a little extension to the frontend model you can use ...
You can specify a frontend model to your field like this:
<frontend_model>module/field_name_renderer</frontend_model><!-- this is it -->
I found a way around this with very little customization. What we need is:
A new controller action that reloads the ACL (without logging out and in), then redirects back to the previous page:
class SSE_AclReload_Adminhtml_Permissions_AclReloadController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Controller_Action
public function indexAction()
$session = ...
Keyur Shah's answer is correct but I found that it is not possible to copy the value of the disabled element. So instead of writing $element->setDisabled('disabled');
you can write $element->setData('readonly', 1);.
This displays the field the same way but you can mark the value and copy it.
If you do not use frontend_model your html for two fields will look like this
<td class="label"><label for="you_dependency_field_id">Dependency Field</label></td>
<select id="you_dependency_field_id" name="groups[general][fields][...
system.xml can not be override but you can hide section by creating module
put below code in your modules system.xml file
<gift_options translate="label" module="giftmessage">
You can use a a model to generate the comment for a config field:
Something like this:
then you need to create the file: Ultimate/Shipper/Model/Adminhtml/Allowedmethods/Comment.php with this content:
you can attach a backend model to the field and you can validate the value server side.
You can find an example in Magento_Backend/etc/adminhtml/system.xml:
<field id="base_url" translate="label comment" type="text" sortOrder="10" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
Add the following to the <orderPlaceMessage> element:
This will add these validation CSS classes used by prototype.js. If you enter a longer value, you will see this generic validation message:
So it is a good idea to add a comment as well to let the user know what this range is:
I got the same error but my system.xml syntax was correct, so it was something else. Turns out it was the result of my cron_group being incorrectly configured, which caused errors when trying to save cron configuration under Configuration > Advanced > System.
It was fixed by adding this to my cron group:
In your config.xml file, you can specify default values for the admin configuration form that you created in system.xml. If a user manually entered a value in one of those fields, they can reset the field to the default value that you specified in config.xml.
The first section to show up is the one with the lowest sort order. If you have the following code in your system.xml:
<your_section translate="label" module="your_helper_alias">
I was wrong in my answer below. I will not delete it (yet) because I got 7 upvotes on this :). But I'm editing it so you all have the chance to retract your vote (even downvote it, because I deserve it).
Ha!..I found it.
Short answer: You cannot!
Long answer: You should be able to do it if someone would have known the difference ...
An element from system.xml can have a dynamic comment. The comment can be rendered through a model.
You need to declare the comment field like this:
Now you need to create the model with alias module/adminhtml_comment:
In theory you can set any config value in the database (table core_config_data).
But for most of the cases, the values saved there have the path column like this: section/group/field. So only 3 parts. The cron schedule is an exception.
The general config of Magento comes from different sources. All of these sources are merged into one big xml. In case ...
Dropdown cannot get it Source model
macerier_test/system_config_source_dropdown_values that why it showing the error
May be you did not define model prefix.
As per as your code macerier_test . is models prefix
So let define model prefix at config.xml
