Iterator / FilterViewHelper

Iterator: Filter ViewHelper

Filters an array by filtering the array, analysing each member and assering if it is equal to (weak type) the filter parameter. If propertyName is set, the ViewHelper will try to extract this property from each member of the array.

Iterators and ObjectStorage etc. are supported.

  • Tag usage example

    <v:iterator.filter subject="[mixed]" filter="[mixed]" propertyName="NULL" preserveKeys="1" invert="1">
    	<!-- tag content - may be ignored! -->
  • Inline usage example

    {v:iterator.filter(subject: [mixed], filter: [mixed], propertyName: 'NULL', preserveKeys: 1, invert: 1)}


Argument Description Type

The comparison value


Invert the behavior of the view helper


If TRUE, keys in the array are preserved - even if they are numeric


Optional property name to extract and use for comparison instead of the object; use on ObjectStorage etc. Note: supports dot-path expressions.


The subject iterator/array to be filtered

Required attribute
