Sortable behavior in admin listing ================================== This is a full working example of how to implement a sortable feature in your Sonata admin listing Background ---------- A sortable behavior is already available for one-to-many relationships ( However there is no packaged solution to have some up and down arrows to sort your records such as showed in the following screen .. figure:: ../images/admin_sortable_listing.png :align: center :alt: Sortable listing :width: 700px Pre-requisites -------------- Configuration ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ - you already have SonataAdmin and DoctrineORM up and running - you already have an Entity class for which you want to implement a sortable feature. For the purpose of the example we are going to call it ``Client``. - you already have an Admin set up, in this example we will call it ``ClientAdmin`` Bundles ^^^^^^^ - install ``gedmo/doctrine-extensions`` bundle in your project (check ``stof/doctrine-extensions-bundle`` for easier integration in your project) and enable the sortable feature in your config - install ``pixassociates/sortable-behavior-bundle`` at least version ^1.1 in your project The recipe ---------- First of all we are going to add a position field in our ``Client`` entity:: /** * @Gedmo\SortablePosition * @ORM\Column(name="position", type="integer") */ private $position; Then we need to inject the Sortable listener. If you only have the Gedmo bundle enabled, you only have to add the listener to your `services.yaml` file and skip this step. .. code-block:: yaml # config/services.yaml services: gedmo.listener.sortable: class: Gedmo\Sortable\SortableListener calls: - [setAnnotationReader, ['@annotation_reader']] tags: - { name: doctrine.event_subscriber, connection: default } If you have the ``stof/doctrine-extensions-bundle``, you only need to enable the sortable feature in your configuration such as .. code-block:: yaml # config/packages/stof_doctrine_extensions.yaml stof_doctrine_extensions: orm: default: sortable: true In our ``ClientAdmin`` we are going to add a custom action in the ``configureListFields`` method and use the default twig template provided in the ``pixSortableBehaviorBundle``:: $listMapper ->add('_action', null, [ 'actions' => [ 'move' => [ 'template' => '@PixSortableBehavior/Default/_sort.html.twig' ], ] ]); In order to add new routes for these actions we are also adding the following method:: // src/Admin/ClientAdmin.php namespace App/Admin; use Sonata\AdminBundle\Route\RouteCollection; protected function configureRoutes(RouteCollection $collection) { $collection->add('move', $this->getRouterIdParameter().'/move/{position}'); } Now you can update your ``services.yaml`` to use the handler provided by the ``pixSortableBehaviorBundle`` .. code-block:: yaml # config/services.yaml services: app.admin.client: class: App\Admin\ClientAdmin arguments: - ~ - App\Entity\Client - 'PixSortableBehaviorBundle:SortableAdmin' # define the new controller via the third argument tags: - { name: sonata.admin, manager_type: orm, label: 'Clients' } Now we need to define the sort by field to be ``$position``:: // src/Admin/ClientAdmin.php namespace App\Admin; use Sonata\AdminBundle\AbstractAdmin; use Sonata\AdminBundle\Datagrid\ListMapper; use Sonata\AdminBundle\Route\RouteCollection; final class ClientAdmin extends AbstractAdmin { protected $datagridValues = [ '_page' => 1, '_sort_order' => 'ASC', '_sort_by' => 'position', ]; protected function configureRoutes(RouteCollection $collection) { $collection->add('move', $this->getRouterIdParameter().'/move/{position}'); } protected function configureListFields(ListMapper $listMapper) { $listMapper ->addIdentifier('name') ->add('enabled') ->add('_action', null, [ 'actions' => [ 'move' => [ 'template' => '@App/Admin/_sort.html.twig' ], ], ]) ; } }
