How can I show images from assets in list view on a module?

edited September 2012 in News & Announcements
In my logos model, I insert an image name into the database.

How can I saw each image in the module list view?

I guess I should do something in the list_items function but I don't know what.

Thank you.

    That's correct in that you will need to alter your list items function. You could try something like the following:
    function list_items($limit = NULL, $offset = NULL, $col = 'nav_key', $order = 'desc') { $data = parent::list_items($limit, $offset, $col, $order); foreach($data as $key => $value) { $data[$key]['image'] = '<img src="'.img_path($value['image']).'" alt="" />'; } return $data; }

    my Products_model's ist_items method:

    function list_items($limit = NULL, $offset = NULL, $col = 'last_updated', $order = 'desc')
    $this->filters = array('name_cn', 'ref');
    $this->db->select('id, name_cn, ref, price, photo, new, published, date_added, last_updated', FALSE);
    $data = parent::list_items($limit, $offset, $col, $order);
    foreach($data as $key => $val)
    //translate mysql enum data to local language
    $data[$key]['new'] = lang($data[$key]['new']);

    //display product photo in list view
    // if have thumb image then show it, otherwise show defaut image
    $display_photo = !empty($data[$key]['photo']) ? img_path('product/' . $this->thumb_name($data[$key]['photo'])) : img_path('product/default_thumb.jpg');

    //show thumb image with HTML code
    $data[$key]['photo'] = '<<<<<img src="'.$display_photo.'" width="30px" />>>>';

    return $data;

    I prefer
    // PHP's original file exist check function
    file_exists(img_path('product/' . $this->thumb_name($data[$key]['photo'])))

    //just check image name field in the database, not the image file

    yes, I'm lazyyyyyyyy

    Don't think that's particularly lazy...

    Personally I'd check the database value first before taking the hit to check the disk. My 2 cents.
