In web development, generating unique IDs is a common requirement for various purposes, such as tracking user data, creating unique URLs, or managing database records. In this blog post, we'll explore how to generate unique IDs using Wix and the UUID library. We'll provide a step-by-step explanation of the code and discuss its implementation.


While Wix provides many built-in features, there are times when you may need to incorporate additional functionality into your Wix site. In this blog post, we'll explore how to install and use the UUID NPM package in Wix to generate unique identifiers for various purposes.


Step 1: Turn on Developer Mode

Before we dive into installing and using the UUID package, ensure that you have your developer mode enabled.


Step 2: Install UUID NPM Package

Search for UUID and install




Step 3: Import the UUID to your page

To incorporate external libraries or packages, Wix provides a built-in development environment called Wix Code. Here's how you can add the code for generating UUIDs to your website page.

const uuid = require('uuid');

Step 4: Use set() object to make sure that the IDs are unique. The set() object will store the generate IDs and makes sure that it is not replicated in the future, even though the chances of that happening are 0 to none.


let uuidSet = new Set();

 while (uuidSet.has(generatedID)) {
      generatedID = uuid.v4();
 }

 uuidSet.add(generatedID)

Step 5: Create a function that returns the Unique ID



const uuid = require('uuid');

    let uuidSet = new Set();

    function generatedUniqueID() {

        let generatedID = uuid.v4();

        while (uuidSet.has(generatedID)) {
            generatedID = uuid.v4();
        }
        uuidSet.add(generatedID)

        return generatedID

    }


That's it.


Each time you use this function, it generates a unique ID.


generatedUniqueID()



Code

Love the tutorial!!!

You are truly great at creating these instructional videos!! Thank you! I am having trouble figuring out . . 'the triggered email' . . it is not being sent to the user submitting the form, the form and the email to the admin works great. . Could you point me to where this might have already been addressed? or any other help? On a second note. .the submit button success/failure message will go back to the default message once it's connected to the data set(I couldn't figure that out either. )

Great Tutorial

Hi !

First of all, I want to thank you for your great tutorials, they helped us a lot with the coding.
But I still need your help, if you don't mind. I have based on Save Calculated Field using Wix Data Hooks Codes, to code my form . but the problem is I don't know why the code only reads the computation for "week2" computation and not the "weeks"

here is the code

I also did a separate column in the dataset where the chosen datas for both fields will be placed.

$w.onReady (() => {
$w("#Person").onChange(() => {
$w("#weeks").onChange(() => {
$w("#week2").onChange(() => {
let person = Number($w("#Person").value);
let weeks = Number($w("#weeks").value);
let week2 = Number($w("#week2").value);


$w("#totalLabel").show();

$w("#totalLabel").text = `"${String(weeks * Number(person))}페소"`; //DESIGN YOUR MESSAGE
$w("#totalLabel").text = `"${String(week2 * Number(person))}페소"`; //DESIGN YOUR MESSAGE

});
});
});

});

Hi there, thanks for your comment. I see why this is a problem. The onChange() function seems wrong in combination.

To combine onChangeFunctions use this method

$w("#Person, #weeks, #weeks2").onChange(() => {

//code here

});
