This API allows the user to copy text to their clipboard. As simple as it sounds, it is fun to know that one can have a copy button that can copy text from a text element or from text input elements. In this tutorial, you will learn how to; Add a button that copies text from text input element Disable the button after clicking it Change the button's label after clicking it Enable and return button text after one second using setTimeout() method. MY ELEMENTS AND DESIGNS Text Input We will use this element to add the text we want to copy. Button Copy Button We will use this button to copy the text inside our text input element. Understanding the code Here, I will explain the concept of my code and the achievement of having an interactive and user-friendly copy-to-clipboard feature on your WIX website. import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; To begin our code, we need to first import our wixWindow API import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {}); Next, we will need the onReady function to allow the elements and code to run before the user starts interacting with the elements. import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {$w("#copyButton").onClick(() => {});}); I then added onClick() to the "copy button" import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {$w("#copyButton").onClick(() => {let textMessage = $w("#textInput").value;});}); I assign a variable to the input value of my text input element. This variable will hold the text inside my text input and will be passed to the copyToClipboard API to be copied. NOTE: if you want to copy a text from a text element, replace this line of code let textMessage = $w("#textInput").value; with this line of code. let textMessage = $w("#textElementID").text; Moving forward... import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {$w("#copyButton").onClick(() => {let textMessage = $w("#textInput").value; wixWindow.copyToClipboard(textMessage).then(() => {});});}); I added the actual line of code where the copyToClipboard API actually copies the text and then prompts the next action to be taken. This is explained in the next step. import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {$w("#copyButton").onClick(() => {let textMessage = $w("#textInput").value; wixWindow.copyToClipboard(textMessage).then(() => {$w("#copyButton").disable();$w("#copyButton").label = 'Copied!';});});}); I then decided to disable my button and change its label to 'Copied!' In this case, the user will know their text has been copied. THE FUNCTION After copying my text, I want the button to be enabled and I also want the label to go back to 'Copy Text'. To achieve this, I wrote a function with a setTimeout() method that will automatically enable and change my button's label after one second. function returnToDefault() {if ($w("#copyButton").disable()) {setTimeout(function () {$w("#copyButton").enable();$w("#copyButton").label = 'Copy Text';}, 1000)}} My function is returnToDefault(); I need to insert this name into my main code at the part that commences what happens next after the text is copied. import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {$w("#copyButton").onClick(() => {let textMessage = $w("#textInput").value; wixWindow.copyToClipboard(textMessage).then(() => {$w("#copyButton").disable();$w("#copyButton").label = 'Copied!';returnToDefault();//MY FUNCTION});});}); Now that my function is within this code, my button will automatically enable and change its label after one second. TAKE AWAY setTimeout(function(){ expression }, 1000); In JavaScript, the setTimeout() method performs an expression after a certain millisecond. FINAL CODE import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(() => {$w("#copyButton").onClick(() => {let textMessage = $w("#textInput").value; wixWindow.copyToClipboard(textMessage).then(() => {$w("#copyButton").disable();$w("#copyButton").label = 'Copied!';returnToDefault();})})});//Add a function to enable button and change the label after 1 secondfunction returnToDefault() {if ($w("#copyButton").disable()) {setTimeout(function () {$w("#copyButton").enable();$w("#copyButton").label = 'Copy Text';}, 1000)}} #Wix #VeloByWix

PREVIEW LIVE SITE | https://bit.ly/3sNt3Jy Do you want to know how to filter your WIX Gallery element using WIX Selection Tags? Then this tutorial is for you. Follow me through this step-by-step process on how to; Connect WIX Gallery(Pro Gallery) element to Database collection Filter contents in your Gallery using WIX Selection Tags. If you don't want to go further with the step-by-step, here's the code which you can copy and use on your website. import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){$w('#selectionTagsID').onChange(()=>{const selectedTag = $w('#selectionTagsID').value;let filter = wixData.filter();if(selectedTag.length >0){ filter = filter.hasSome("FIELDKEY",selectedTag);}$w('#datasetID').setFilter(filter);})}); In the remaining part of this tutorial, I will go step-by-step on how to incorporate this feature in your website. To incorporate this code you only need to change few things, which are; Selection Tags ID - #selectionTagsID FIELDKEY - FIELDKEY Dataset ID - #datasetID Once you've done these, you can pretty much use the code for filtering your Table, Repeater and Gallery. STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL Step 1: Create a database collection and add items to it. For my database called 'Restaurant', I added the following fields; Title Image Cuisine Location Step 2: Add and Connect WIX Gallery to Data. I connected only the following fields to my Gallery: Title - Connected to gallery title Image - Connected to gallery Image Cuisine - Connected to gallery description Step 4: Add selection tags and add values from your database where you want to filter. Note: I am filtering from 'Cuisine', a field in my database. And the two values from it are 'French' and 'Italian' Then I added the values from this field to my selection tags options. My values are; French Italian THEY ARE BOTH CASE SENSITIVE WHEN ADDING THEM TO YOUR SELECTION TAGS' VALUES Step 3: Understanding The Code. 1. The first and foremost step in writing WIX code (Velo by WIX) when dealing with data from your database is importing the wixData. import wixData from'wix-data'; //Step 1 2. Next, I called an onReady function. Sets the function that runs when all the page elements have finished loading. import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){ //Step 2}); 3. Since we are making use of Selection Tags, I added an onChange event that runs the piece of code within its curly brackets when the selections are changed. import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){$w('#selectionTagsID').onChange(()=>{//Change #selectionTagsID to your selection tags' ID //Step 3});}); This event is added inside the curly brackets of the onReady function. 4. Then, I assigned a value of the selected tag to a constant called "selectedTag" . import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){$w('#selectionTagsID').onChange(()=>{//Change #selectionTagsID to your selection tags' IDconst selectedTag = $w('#selectionTagsID').value;//Step 4});}); I did this because I will utilize this constant inside my code later and will save me the time of writing "$w('#selectionTagsID').value" each time I need to use it. 5. Another assignment we did is the assignment for WIX filter function. Since we will be filtering our gallery, we will need to let the code know that's what we are doing. import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){$w('#selectionTagsID').onChange(()=>{//Change #selectionTagsID to your selection tags' IDconst selectedTag = $w('#selectionTagsID').value;let filter = wixData.filter();//Step 5});}); 6. Now to the main part of the code. We want to let out selection tags run with the logic that when it is selected then step 5 should run with data from a specific field in out database. import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){$w('#selectionTagsID').onChange(()=>{//Change #selectionTagsID to your selection tags' IDconst selectedTag = $w('#selectionTagsID').value;let filter = wixData.filter();if(selectedTag.length >0){ //Step 6 filter = filter.hasSome("FIELDKEY", selectedTag);}//});}); Remember we assigned the value of the selection tags to a constant called 'selectedTag'. We may be needing that now. As you may already know, the 'if' is a conditional block that let's our code choose what to do when certain conditions are met. Now, these conditions are within its brackets as shown below; if(selectedTag.length > 0) The condition can be explained simply as, if there is a selected tag then.. 0 stands for 'It is selected' while less than 0 stands for 'it is not selected' Then what happens if the condition is met? Then we open two curly brackets and add what should happen. { filter = filter.hasSome("FIELDKEY", selectedTag);} What should happen is the filter will occur but will find the data inside a field in our database. To find that field, we use the fieldkey of the specific field in our database. Learn more about fieldkey here. 7. Finally, we remind our 'filter' to go through our dataset in finding the data from our database. import wixData from'wix-data'; $w.onReady(function(){$w('#selectionTagsID').onChange(()=>{//Change #selectionTagsID to your selection tags' IDconst selectedTag = $w('#selectionTagsID').value;let filter = wixData.filter();if(selectedTag.length >0){ filter = filter.hasSome("FIELDKEY", selectedTag);}//$w('#datasetID').setFilter(filter);//Step 7});}); So, that's it. We pretty much covered the basics of what we have to do. To incorporate this code you only need to change few things, which are; Selection Tags ID - #selectionTagsID FIELDKEY - FIELDKEY Dataset ID - #datasetID Once you've done these, you can pretty much use the code for filtering your Table, Repeater and Gallery. Thank you for reading up to this point. If you have further questions, you can post on forum or get in contact with us.

Using this WIX example I was able to add it as a comment section on my dynamic page. All it took to adjust the code was modifying this line of code product = await $w('#productPage1').getProduct(); to this 👇🏽 product = await $w('#dynamicDataset').getCurrentItem(); While replicating the exact format by copy/paste, including creating similar database collections, fields, and datasets, you are sure to land your first easy-to-use comment section on your dynamic page. The rest is pretty easy. You can remove the elements you don't necessarily need❌ and comment them out in the code panel. Check out the step-by-step video. 🚩MORE TUTORIALS https://www.wixgenius.com/wix-tutorials 📺Check out more videos
