Updating sub-subfield not working

  • Hello!

    With an Ajax function (onclick) I’m trying to update a field in a nested repeater, meeting some conditions, but it is not working. Have tried many ways, but I can’t get it to work.

    Here’s my code:

    function updatemogelijkheid(){
      $mogelijkheid = $_POST['mogelijkheid'];
      $vestiging = $_POST['vestiging'];
      if( have_rows('vestigingen', 'option') ) : while ( have_rows('vestigingen', 'option') ) : the_row();
        $vestiging_naam = get_sub_field('vestiging_naam');
        if($vestiging_naam == $vestiging){
          if( have_rows('mogelijkheden', 'option') ) : while ( have_rows('mogelijkheden', 'option') ) : the_row();
            $datumentijd = get_sub_field('datum_en_tijd');
            $gereserveerd = get_sub_field('gereserveerd');
            if($datumentijd == $mogelijkheid) :
                update_sub_field('gereserveerd', 'gereserveerd' ? '0' : '1', 'option');
          endwhile; endif;
      endwhile; endif;
    add_action( 'wp_ajax_updatemogelijkheid', 'updatemogelijkheid' );
    add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_updatemogelijkheid', 'updatemogelijkheid' );

    Can some one please help me with this?

  • Have you tried using the field key when doing the update? If the field does not already have a value then update_field() will fail to save the value. See the information on using the field key on this page

  • Thanks for your answer. Yes, I already tried to update the field based on the key. Also this doesn’t work.

  • I had a look at the database, how the values are stored. I’ve found a work around by doing this:

    update_option( 'options_vestigingen_'.$parent_i.'_mogelijkheden_'.$child_i.'_gereserveerd', 'a:1:{i:0;s:2:"ja";}' );

  • Sadly my work around doesn’t work for the function ‘delete_row()’.

    Based on a date in one of the subfields, I check if a date is past the current date and I want to remove that specific row. Only the function delete_row does not work on nested repeaters?

    Here’s my code:

    function deletePastRows() {
    	$currenttime = new DateTime();
    	$parent_i = 0;
      if( have_rows('vestigingen', 'option') ) : while ( have_rows('vestigingen', 'option') ) : the_row();
          $child_i = 0;
          if( have_rows('mogelijkheden', 'option') ) : while ( have_rows('mogelijkheden', 'option') ) : the_row(); $child_i++;
    				$rowtime = get_sub_field('datum_en_tijd');
    				$rowtime = new DateTime($rowtime);
    				if($rowtime < $currenttime) {
    						delete_row( 'mogelijkheden', $child_i, 'option' );
          endwhile; endif;
      endwhile; endif;
  • unfortunately, I don’t have any experience with update_row or delete_row and I’d say that you’re problems are definitely due to having nested repeaters. More than likely the nesting will need to be reflected in the $selector argument, but I don’t really know for sure.

    You might get more help if you open a support ticket on this issue and see if they can help you.

    Please post anything you find here since it will help others with the same problem.

    Is there someone else who could help?

    Did you get a solution?
    And if so, what is it.
    I really like to know, because I’m having difficulties adding a new row in a nested repeater. Seems like nested repeaters are not very well covered by ACF.
