Drupal 6 Views embeding and passing filters

  • Load a view:
    <?php
    $view
    = views_get_view(‘view_name’);
    ?>
  • Initalize it and add arguments. Fiddle with options as needed:
    <?php
    $view
    ->set_display(‘default’);
    $view->set_arguments(array(‘first’, ‘second’));
    $view->is_cacheable = FALSE;
    $view->display[‘default’]->handler->options[‘items_per_page’] = 3;
    $view->display[‘default’]->handler->options[‘title’] = $title;
    $view->display[‘default’]->handler->options[‘display_options’][‘use_pager’] = FALSE;
    ?>
  • Or add a filter. Works for fields, sorts, and arguments as well.
    <?php
    $display_id
    = ‘default’;
    $view->set_display($display_id);
    $id = $view->add_item($display_id, ‘filter’, ‘og_uid’, ‘is_admin’);
    $item = $view->get_item($display_id, ‘filter’, $id);
    $item[‘value’] = array(0, 1);
    $view->set_item($display_id, ‘filter’, $name, $item);
    $view->is_cacheable = FALSE;
    ?>
  • Get an array of the view result objects:
    <?php
    $view
    ->execute();
    foreach (
    $view->result as $result) {
    foreach (
    $view->field as $id => $field) {
    if (!empty(
    $view->field[$id][‘handler’])) {
    $view->field[$id][‘handler’]->pre_render($view->result);
    // Do something with this unrendered result object
    }
    }
    }
    ?>
  • Another way to get array of results:
    <?php
    $view
    ->render();
    foreach (
    $view->result as $result) {
    // Do something with this rendered result object
    }
    ?>
  • Use a custom display plugin
    <?php
    $display_id
    = $view->add_display(‘my plugin’);
    $result = $view->render($display_id);
    ?>
  • Another method
    <?php
    $view
    = views_get_view(‘my_view’);
    $view->execute_display($display_id, $args);
    ?>
