I want to count the number of values of unlimited field in twig tempalate I tried

{{ node.field_mytext.count }} => faced with error

and in another try

{{ content.field_mytext.count }} => nothing returned

(in this method I checked my field is not in disabled field is display manager).


My question is how can I count the number of items of a field in Twig?

I hope I face with the solutions expect these solutions :D

  • did you try {{ content.field_mytext | length }}? – David Mcsmith Jul 21 '16 at 11:58

{{ node.field_mytext.count }} => faced with error

This does not work, because the method count is not allowed in twig policies:

core/lib/Drupal/Core/Template/TwigSandboxPolicy.php

{{ content.field_mytext | length }}?

This does not work, because content is a render array with a lot of additional keys.

This works: Convert field to array and count

{{ node.field_mytext.getvalue | length }}

  • you could probably also do it with a foreach loop, but this is cleaner for this specific purpose. – No Sssweat Jul 21 '16 at 13:22

Easiest way is to get the ['#items']|length. I do it all the time for counting items for view more instances and when loading sliders.

{{ content.field_mytext['#items']|length }}

I've used own Twig filters to support entity fields, with this you can use fields as native arrays:

{{ content.field_mytext|length }}

or

{{ content.field_mytext|first|value }}

or

{% if content.field_mytext is empty %}

You can easily add you own Twig filters via a custom module. You can learn more here: drupal.org/docs/8/creating-custom-modules. In short you need to create a module directory, for example path/to/drupal/modules/custom/common/, put there common.info.yml with module definition and common.services.yml with definition of service (see comments in code) and put my code to /path/to/drupal/modules/custom/common/src/TwigExtension.php.
