Since I am an absolute newbie on ATK4 I might be wrong about this. If so, please correct me.
I installed (tried to install …) the TimePicker add-on. (The first application I have to develop needs a timepicker, that’s why). After installation, I added the location for addons, but to no avail. Whatever I added, I received this attempted search path:
attempted_locations: 0: phar://…/agiletoolkit-sandbox.phar/addons/timepicker/lib/Form/Field/TimePicker.php
Now I found numerous directions on how to add a path, and they were all a variation on this:
Note the first parameter in addLocation(). I think this is the reason for no paths being added.
This is what works:
$this->api->pathfinder->addLocation(array( 'addons'=> array('addons', 'vendor'), )) ->setBasePath($this->pathfinder->base_location->getPath() .'/..')
Now the addons are expected here:
agiletoolkit \ |- addons |- admin
This is when the standard installation is downloaded and placed in the webroot. Obviously when omitting the ‘/…’ from setBasePath the addons will be expected in admin/addons. That is no big deal.
This method of adding a location came from one of Romans’ video tutorials while he was adding a different add-in: https://youtu.be/mJY-xUTeOKw
I have looked at the source code of addLocation(), and it seems that the function of the parameters has changed since version 4.2.
Anyway, this worked for me. I hope it helps someone else.
