i m trying here to dispaly my account user name in listing. i m using account-link to attach the user data but how can i display the username instead of _id
can anyone help me on above?
I see two options:
- Create a custom renderer for the entries view, that calls
/accounts/find to get the related user data and display that instead of the id.
- Use the event system to replace the ids before they are fetched and displayed.
See Account-Link Display Option - #2 by raffaelj
By the way, this is the first result if you search for “account link” in this forum
The account-link field doesn’t have it’s own renderer, so the default one is used to display a string.
I wrote a mini tutorial about custom renderers here:
The interesting bit for the id replacement can be found in the core source
