I would like to add a class based on the field value I used in commerce order view. I have tried a solution from here I have installed "devel" module and already enabled it. However, I cannot find the dpm() result from my admin order page. I don't know if it is because of my code or dpm() function.

Here is my code and put them in my theme's template.php file::

function MYTHEME_preprocess_views_view_list(&$vars) {
    if ($vars['view']->name == 'commerce_backoffice_orders' && $vars['view']->current_display == "Admin Page") {
        dpm($vars); //uncomment to see variables
        foreach($vars['view']->result as $key => $value){
             $timestamp = $value->node_created;
             if ($timestamp) { // add whatever conditional logic you need here
             $vars['classes_array'][$key] .= ' hello'; // note the space in front of class

Here is a screenshot: enter image description here enter image description here

Does anyone have any idea about my issue? Thank you for anyone's help~~~~

  • If you are not using the site administrator account check the permissions page and see if the "Access developer information" permission is grated to your role. Just to make sure that your hook is being called add a die() call and see if your page is still being loaded or not. Also, can you add a screenshot of the whole view configuration?

  • @OPTASYCanada Thank you for your reply. I checked my permission page and have all the permissions. I edited my question and add the configuration screenshot above.

  • In the code you posted, have you actually replaced MYTHEME with the name of your theme ? Otherwise, the hook won't get called.

Try this hook instead: MYTHEME_preprocess_views_view_table. Your view uses the Megarow table format. The hook you used is called for the list format.

  • This is my code looks like right now: function themev2_preprocess_views_view_table(&$vars) { dpm($vars) or die("Cannot open"); //uncomment to see variables }. I deleted "if" but I still cannot see $vars value on any view page.

I found the solution by using JS injector Module. If someone wants to get any idea from my question, you can check it from here.
