Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

I have added the code in three ways

1. Full code at top after debug no change in previous email design.

2. Both end statement at last after debug nothing display.

3. Putting both end statement before output the ${outputName} and got below design

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

I'm not sure you're putting the code in the right place.

 

If you put that code in a Velocity token (in Script Editor) it'll give you a full debug dump of all the fields in the given list, with their names, values (or null) and datatypes.

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

This is the one script product name where I added the code at the top.

 

<html>
<body>
<table>
#set( $coList = $pro_cList )
#foreach( $record in $coList )
#foreach( $kv in $record.entrySet() )
{kv.getKey()} ${display.alt($kv.getValue().class,"")} ${display.alt($kv.getValue(),"null")}
#end
#end
## start product name select
<tbody>
#set( $DEFAULT_Product = "No item in list." )
<tr>
#if( $pro_cList.isEmpty() )
#set( $outputName = $DEFAULT_Product )
#else
#foreach( $pro_c in $sorter.sort($pro_cList, "date:desc") )
#if( !$display.alt($pro_cList["productName"],"").isEmpty() )
#set( $outputName = $pro_c["productName"] )
#break
#end
#end
#set( $outputName = $display.alt($outputName, $DEFAULT_Product) )
#end
<td>
${outputName}
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
</body>
</html>

 

 is code placement is incorrect?

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

It's very surprising to me that you're outputting the entire email from a single Velocity token. That's not usually — well, basically, it's never done.

 

Please reduce the "testing surface" so that you're only outputting the product list (using my debug code) from VTL. Don't mix in anything else, put everything else in the template.

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

I am using only the debug code and removed everything from VTL.

 

#set( $coList = $pro_cList )
#foreach( $record in $coList )
#foreach( $kv in $record.entrySet() )
{kv.getKey()} ${display.alt($kv.getValue().class,"")} ${display.alt($kv.getValue(),"null")}
#end
#end
${coList}

 

 In the template, I am using {{my.VTL}}  to debug it now. is it ok now or need to add code more?

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

That's seems like the right start.

 

So what's in the output?

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

You have a typo.

 

{kv.getKey()} 

is supposed to be

${kv.getKey()} 

 

Also, can you please do this in the Text-only version of the email so the line breaks are preserved? 🙂 Kind of impossible to read otherwise.

Re: Velocity Dynamic Content Sorting

Hi Sanford,

I was wondering  if you have gone through the debug code and please let me know the details.
