Just wondering how to display a bi-dimensional DataObjectSet in a template:

In the Page model I have this method:

public function getGroups() {
....if (null === $this->groups) {
........$groups = DataObject::get('MyGroup', 'ParentID = ' . $this->ID, 'Sort', '');
........if ($groups) {
............foreach($groups as $group) {
................$items = DataObject::get('MyItem', "ParentID = {$group->ID}", 'Sort', '');
................if ($items) {
....................if (null === $this->groups) {
........................$this->groups = new DataObjectSet();
....................}
....................$this->groups->push($items);
................}
............}
........}
....}
....return $this->groups;
}

How do I cycle the data to show Groups and Items ?

<% if Groups %>
....<% control Groups %>
........Group name: $Name
........<% control ???? %>
............Item name: ????
........<% end_control %>
....<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

thank you

To be able to iterate over a array in the template it must be a ArrayData object (or another dataobject set) for example

$items = DataObject::get('MyItem', "ParentID = {$group->ID}");

$items->Foo = new ArrayData(array('Title' => 'Hi'));

Then in the template you can do

<% control Groups %>
<% control Foo %>
$Title
<% end_control %>
<% end_control %>

Will output 'Hi' for each group

If you need to pass a set of data then you can make Foo a dataobjectset of arraydata object

..
$myset = new DataObjectSet();
$myset->push(new ArrayData(array('Title'=> 'One'));
$myset->push(new ArrayData(array('Title'=> 'Two'));
..
$item->Foo = $myset;

Then the template from before will output 'One' 'Two' for each group

Thanks Will for pointing me in the right direction, however I think there was a small error: Foo needs to be added to each Row and not to the Rowset.

Here's the code.

public function getGroups() {
....if (null === $this->groups) {
........$groups = DataObject::get('MyGroup', 'ParentID = ' . $this->ID, 'Sort', '');
........if ($groups) {
............foreach($groups as $group) {
................$group->Items = DataObject::get('MyItem', "ParentID = {$group->ID}", 'Sort', '');
................if ($group->Items) {
....................if (null === $this->groups) {
........................$this->groups = new DataObjectSet();
....................}
....................$this->groups->push($group);
................}
............}
........}
....}
....return $this->groups;
}

In the template:

<% if Groups %>
....<% control Groups %>
........Group name: $Name
........<% control Items %>
............Item name: $Name
........<% end_control %>
....<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>
