German address field order?

  1. highend

    Hi,

    will v1.5 include the option to display the address fields in the correct order for german users?

    E.g.:

    1line, two fields: Name | Surname
    2line, two fields: Street | Number
    3line, two fields: PLZ | City

    I've read that it's possible to hide fields from the admin menu and that it's also possible to use .css to move a field to a different line but those "hacks" destroy the tab index order...

    Tia,
    Highend

  2. Name isn't part of the Address field, so that won't be part of the 1.5 release. Name is a separate field.

    This is the first time this has been requested. We haven't had any German users request any enhancements to the Address field so this definitely won't be in the 1.5 release because it's the first we have heard of it.

    But we can look at enhancing this in a future release. We plan on focusing on enhancing and refining existing functionality as one of the goals of this year.

  3. I´m from Norway and I would love for a way to reorder the address fields. We use Zip before City, so it´s a bit confusing for people when they are so used to entering in one order. In result we have many entries mixed up with zip in city and vice versa.

    Is there something I could do as a temporary fix?

  4. The only thing you could do is hack the core code. There isn't a hook to do this, so it can't be done any other way than hacking the core plugin files themselves.

    Hi! I would love a way to reorder the address fields too.
    I am from Germany.

  6. Same Here Zip before City is the general usage in Switzerland to!
    Hacking the core code is not such a great option!

    For now I would recommend a CSS bases solution as It won't break when you update...

  7. We are going to add a filter in the final 1.5 release that will allow you to tell Gravity Forms to display the zip code before the city.

    Unfortunately with the large number of variations we can't add a custom address field type for every region so we handle more specialized use via hooks/filters you can use.

    It's actually possible to create your own custom address type and add it to the address type drop down selector via existing hooks. But we will implement a simple hook where you can simply tell the address field to swap the position of the zip and city fields. This will be in the final 1.5 release.

    Finally bought Gravity Forms :)

    Carl,
    how exactly do I swap zip and city on a per form basis now (how does the necessary hook look like and which file has to be modified to use it)?

    And how about adding a tutorial to the documentation how a custom address type can be build and included in the address type drop down selector? Would be quite usefull imho.

    Regards,
    Ulf

    Hi, Carl.

    I've inserted the filter code into our themes' function.php file,
    but nothing's happen (address fields positions are not changed).
    I'm expecting that address fields order is changed in our form.
    What's wrong?

    inserted code:

    add_filter("gform_address_display_format", "address_format");
    function address_format($format){
        return "zip_before_city";
    }

    Thanks,
    Isao

    Hi, Carl.

    I've upgraded GF to 1.5.2 and tested same filter, but nothing happens.
    Is something wrong with me?

  15. It looks like it was corrected in the entry details and notifications, but not the form display itself. We will correct this. I apologize for the oversight on this one.

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    I will wait for the fix.

    Using this filter,
    I want to try to reorder address fields
    for Japanese usage, it must be
    Postal code, State (with Japanese provinces list),
    City, Address1, Address2.
    Could you give me an advise to quick hack?
    It can be ugly and not perfect.

  17. I also require this filter/hack/option.

  18. Any update on this?

    I'm currently using DOM manipulation with jQuery to fix this.

  19. Wow! New release an hour after I posted and it is working just perfect :-)

    Excellent work!

  20. Yes, this was fully implemented in the new 1.5.2.8 release.

    Here is documentation for the hook that would be used to swap the position of the city and zip fields in the Address field:
