Thumbnail in another addon?

Discussion in 'Showcase Support' started by nrep, Mar 4, 2015.

    I'm making an addon which requires the use of some showcase thumbnails. I'm a novice coder so I'm learning as I go along :).

    I've managed to get things like the showcase title, username etc.. by using a MySQL query:

     $showcaseInfo = $db->fetchAll("
    SELECT item_id, username, item_name, description
    FROM xf_nflj_showcase_item
    WHERE item_id IN (".$ShowcaseIDs.")
    I can then construct links to the URL by using something like /showcase/$showcaseID which redirects to the correct URL.

    However, I can't seem to fetch the thumbnail URL as a variable. I saw that XF has this bit of code available, but I'm not sure how I can use it to fetch the showcase thumbnail:

    I know this is beyond normal support, but if anyone has an idea how I can access a thumbnail URL when I've got a item_ID and cover_image_ID for a showcase entry then I would be very grateful.

    I've made a tiny bit of progress, as I can now get some further thumbnail data - just not enough to form a URL:

        $thumb1 = $showcaseInfo[1]['cover_image_id'];
        $thumb1 = $thumbModel->getAttachmentById($thumb1);
    This gives:

    [attachment_id] => 76590
    [data_id] => 44481
    [content_type] => showcase_item
    [content_id] => 34
    [attach_date] => 1414209514
    [temp_hash] =>
    [unassociated] => 0
    [view_count] => 11
    [filename] => _MG_4189.jpeg
    [file_size] => 143310
    [file_hash] => 0bef21d5cdc824f35405342bed9d1649
    [width] => 1280
    [height] => 854
    [thumbnail_width] => 300
    [thumbnail_height] => 300

    Almost there! I can use this, but it only gives a tiny 100px attachment, rather than the 300px one used in the showcase:

        $thumb1 = $showcaseInfo[1]['cover_image_id'];
        $thumb1 = $thumbModel->getAttachmentById($thumb1);
        $thumb1 = $thumbModel->getAttachmentThumbnailUrl($thumb1);

    I think I've got the answer for anyone else in the same situation, I hope this helps:

        $scItemModel XenForo_Model::create('NFLJ_Showcase_Model_Item');
    $scAttachmentModel XenForo_Model::create('NFLJ_Showcase_Model_Attachment'); 
    $thumbModel XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Attachment');
    $thumb1 $showcaseInfo[1]['cover_image_id'];
    $thumb1 $thumbModel->getAttachmentById($thumb1);
    $thumb1 $scAttachmentModel->getAttachmentThumbnailUrl($thumb1);

    Look at the prepareItems and prepareItem methods in the Item Model. That will show you how attachments are being fetched and prepared for a single item vs multiple items.
