How do I get the actual rows number in views-view-field--title.tpl.php in Drupal7 and views3?

I know how to get the total by

$view = views_get_current_view();

But how do I get the actual row number? To print 1/4 2/4 3/4 4/4

user1090003 has the right answer.

in views-view-fields.tpl.php or... you can have the row index like this $view->row_index

Further explanation:

In views-view-field--title.tpl.php (suggestion of views-view-fields.tpl.php), you already have the $view object available. That view object has a property "row_index" that equals the current row number starting at zero.

Example of use:

    <?php print $view->row_index; ?>
    <?php print $output; ?>

Example results:

    Node Title 1
    Node Title 2

I usually accomplish this by adding a "count" field and making it excluded from display. In the title field I add the token for the "count" field in "rewrite output." Make sure the count field is BEFORE the title field.

    I use field Global PHP as numbering column and there I put echo ($view->row_index); works well in Drupal 7 (but counts from ZERO). Commented May 18, 2014 at 11:35

Setting the $static var to 0 in the VALUE CODE area allows to do $static++ in de OUTPUT CODE area

  • In views there are two fields when using the Global PHP field. You can set pre and post render data in these. This works just fine for a simple counter. Commented Aug 14, 2018 at 22:25
