I've got a view (D7, Views3) that is grouped by a relationship-based title field (set in
Format: settings), and I'm using a
Global: View result counter to give each item a number. This is how output currently looks:
4...Still more items
5...Even more items
It's counting rows regardless of position in groups. I want it to reset the counter with each group, to look like this:
2...Still more items
3...Even more items
Seems like a simple enough task - but I can't find any options relevant to this. I don't mind writing some code to achieve this, but Views is so dense I have no idea where to start.
Can this be done without coding up some hooks? If so how?
If not, where and how in the thicket of data that is a views object could I identify where within a grouping each
Global: View result counter field row is?
EDIT: looking at the very simplistic code in
views/handlers/views_handler_field_counter.inc, it looks like a custom module based on this code would be the best option, creating a new global field that uses groups instead of the pager. This would need to find data about each group (probably in
$this->view somewhere?), and would identify its own row's position in the appropriate group. Is this possible? Again, not really sure where to start.
EDIT 2: No sign of useful grouping data in the view object that I can see, but this thread suggests that maybe it's sorting data that should be used for this?
