I would like users to add rows into a repeater field which subfields come from a given list. Is there a way to get the values of the repeater field pre-populated when adding a new row?
Let’s say I have a list of items on a restaurant menu. Each item has a name and a price. Then I have a post for a customer with a repeater field called “bill”. My client would like to add items for the menu into this repeater field without having to copy them manually.
– I have tried the relational field, linking menu items and customer’s bills, but that won’t allow me to change prices in the future or add the same item several times. 🙁
– A repeater field with a drop-down as subfield doesn’t allow me to get both the name and the price (i.e. soup, 5$) 🙁
If you look at some of my other examples you might be able to work out what changes need to be made for a repeater, but basically you can get the row your on by using something like $(e.$el).closest('.acf-row');
Hi John, thanks for your help. I have tried to implement your code, but it’s a bit difficult for me to understand it.
I have tried another approach though. Using the code on this link I have managed to store both the name and the price as a Json. Then all I have to do is decoding that and extract the elements of the array.
It may not be the best way of doing it, but it seems to work.
