date field with custom object to add if loop

I have the following code, which formats date exactly the way I need it.

The issue is I only want to show the date in email which matches correct $eventid for customers.

 

I tried this loop but nothing populates:

 

#foreach( $eventid in $oN24Attendee_cList )
#if( $eventid.equals("2862094") )
$eventdatetime_formatted
#end
#end

----------------

Full code 

 

## get the size of the list of Custom object
## remove one from the size of the list to reference the right object in the array (arrays start at zero, not 1)
#set( $lastIndex = $math.sub($listlength,1) )
## convert the Service Start Date string to a date
#set( $dateOptions = {
"formats" : {
"userin" : "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm",
"userout" : "dd MMMM yyyy hh:mm a"
},
"timezones" : {
"userin" : "America/Chicago",
"userout" : "Europe/London"
},
"locale" : $date.getLocale()
} )
#set( $eventdatetimelike = $oN24Attendee_cList.get($lastIndex).eventdatetime )
#set( $eventdatetime = $convert.parseDate(
$eventdatetimelike,
$dateOptions.formats.userin,
$dateOptions.locale,
$date.getTimeZone().getTimeZone($dateOptions.timezones.userin)
) )
## convert the date to a different format
#set( $eventdatetime_formatted = $date.format(
$dateOptions.formats.userout,
$eventdatetime,
$dateOptions.locale,
$date.getTimeZone().getTimeZone($dateOptions.timezones.userout)
) )
#foreach( $eventid in $oN24Attendee_cList )
#if( $eventid.equals("2862094") )
$eventdatetime_formatted
#end
#end

Re: date field with custom object to add if loop


As you can see the from the eventid: 2862094 so the date should be 
17 February 2021 3:00 PM

Not really, the code is doing exactly what you should expect it to do!

 

Your $eventdatetimelike variable is always built from the eventdatetime property of the last item in the list. That's how you wrote it:

#set( $eventdatetimelike = $oN24Attendee_cList.get($lastIndex).eventdatetime )

 

So that value is

2021-04-19 09:00:00

per your dump of the list.

 

If you want $eventdatetimelike, and in turn $eventdatetime, to be the date of the matching item, then you can't build it from the last item.

Re: date field with custom object to add if loop

In this loop...

#foreach( $eventid in $oN24Attendee_cList )
#if( $eventid.equals("2862094") )
$eventdatetime_formatted
#end
#end

... you're comparing the entire (Map) object $eventid to the value "2862094".

 

That's not what you want. You should be comparing the value of a particular key in the object to your target string, i.e.

#foreach( $event in $oN24Attendee_cList )
#if( $event.eventid.equals("2862094") )
$eventdatetime_formatted
#end
#end

 

(I used eventid as a placeholder. Not sure what the key is in your case, you'd know that by dragging the field onto the canvas.)

Re: date field with custom object to add if loop

Hi Sanford,

Thanks for the help but when I add in the formatted field $eventdatetime_formatted within that loop nothing shows up(only blank space). The field I am targeting is eventid ${oN24Attendee_cList.get(0).eventid}.

 

I used your code but it still shows blank.

This is the field I am trying use to filter correct data into the email, what needs to show after data format complete:

Harry_Rashid_1-1615980944486.png

this is what is showing at moment, but is from another record in custom object for that customer

19 April 2021 03:00 PM

fields that are used:

${oN24Attendee_cList.get(0).eventdatetime}
${oN24Attendee_cList.get(0).eventid}
${oN24Attendee_cList.get(0).eventtitle}

Re: date field with custom object to add if loop

I think its to do with the IF loop, seems to go blank when adding that within the FOR loop.

I think its to do with the IF loop, seems to go blank when adding that within the FOR loop.

(#if isn't a loop, it's just a condition. #foreach is your loop.)

Re: date field with custom object to add if loop

I need to see the real output (not in the UI, in Velocity) of the list variable:

${oN24Attendee_cList}

Re: date field with custom object to add if loop

Are you sure eventid is a String?

 

You're comparing it with a String:

.equals("2862094")

 

if it's a Number, you need to compare it accordingly:

.equals(2862094)
