php – Sonata Admin search feature

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I recently updated my symfony2 project vendors. Thus I got latest Sonata Admin Bundle version (updated from 2.2.5 to 2.2.6).

I saw there is a new search feature in this release but I can’t get it work. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Drives me crazy.

Here is my composer.json require :

    "require": {
    "php": ">=5.3.3",
    "symfony/symfony": "2.3.*",
    "doctrine/orm": ">=2.2.3,<2.4-dev",
    "doctrine/doctrine-bundle": "1.2.*",
    "twig/extensions": "1.0.*",
    "symfony/assetic-bundle": "2.3.*",
    "symfony/swiftmailer-bundle": "2.3.*",
    "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.3.*",
    "sensio/distribution-bundle": "2.3.*",
    "sensio/framework-extra-bundle": "2.3.*",
    "sensio/generator-bundle": "2.3.*",
    "incenteev/composer-parameter-handler": "~2.0",

    "jms/security-extra-bundle": "1.5.*",
    "doctrine/data-fixtures": "1.0.*",
    "doctrine/doctrine-fixtures-bundle": "dev-master",
    "doctrine/migrations": "dev-master",
    "doctrine/doctrine-migrations-bundle": "dev-master",
    "stof/doctrine-extensions-bundle": "1.1.*",
    "friendsofsymfony/user-bundle" : "1.3.*",
    "knplabs/knp-menu-bundle": "1.1.*",
    "knplabs/gaufrette": "dev-master",
    "knplabs/knp-paginator-bundle": "2.3.*",

    "sonata-project/easy-extends-bundle" : "2.1.*",
    "sonata-project/cache-bundle": "2.1.*",
    "sonata-project/jquery-bundle": "1.8.*",
    "sonata-project/exporter": "1.3.*",
    "sonata-project/block-bundle": "2.2.*",
    "sonata-project/user-bundle": "2.2.*@dev",
    "sonata-project/admin-bundle": "2.2.*",
    "sonata-project/doctrine-orm-admin-bundle": "2.2.*",
    "sonata-project/doctrine-extensions": "1.0.0",
    "sonata-project/google-authenticator": "1.0.0",
    "sonata-project/intl-bundle": "2.2.*@dev",
    "sonata-project/media-bundle": "2.2.*",
    "sonata-project/notification-bundle": "2.2.*",
    "sonata-project/formatter-bundle": "2.3.*",

    "hwi/oauth-bundle": "0.3.*@dev",
    "elao/web-profiler-extra-bundle": "2.3.*@dev",
    "liip/functional-test-bundle": "dev-master",
    "guzzle/guzzle": "v3.4.1",
    "jms/serializer-bundle": "0.12.*@dev",
    "friendsofsymfony/rest-bundle": "0.12.0",
    "friendsofsymfony/comment-bundle": "2.0.*@dev",
    "whiteoctober/breadcrumbs-bundle": "dev-master",
    "igorw/file-serve-bundle": "1.0.*",
    "zendframework/zendpdf": "2.0.*"
},

Right after the update I had the search feature complaining about a non existing block :

An exception has been thrown during the rendering of a template (“The
block type sonata.admin.block.search_result does not exist”) in
SonataAdminBundle:Core:search.html.twig at line 48

I corrected this one by declaring the block in my config.yml:

sonata_block:
    default_contexts: [cms]
    blocks:
        sonata.admin.block.admin_list:
            contexts:   [admin]

        sonata.admin.block.search_result:
            contexts:   [admin]

        sonata.block.service.text:
        sonata.block.service.rss:

But now, it is complaining about request not set :

An exception has been thrown during the rendering of a template (“The
Request object has not been set”) in
SonataAdminBundle:Core:search.html.twig at line 48

I really don’t understand what I’m missing here. Any help would be much appreciated.

How to&Answers:

I got the same error.
It’s probably because you are using the Request in an Admin.

$this->getRequest()->get('context', 'default')

The search does not set the request and the Admin triggers an exception if you are trying to get the request.

In my Admin, I am using a function to access the request parameter and avoid an exception.

public function getRequestParameterOrNull( $key, $default = null ){
    try{
        return $this->getRequest()->get($key, $default);
    }catch(\Exception $e){
        return null;
    }
}

Answer:

Add the block in your sonata block config:

sonata_block:
    default_contexts: [cms]
    blocks:
        sonata.admin.block.admin_list: #default sonata admin block
            contexts: [admin]
        sonata.admin.block.search_result:
            contexts: [admin]

Find below the full configuration:

},

I’ve just forced a specific commit for the sonata admin bundle, just to be sure that we are using the same version. I suggest to you to remove the #da071a913b86619fdd35449713a53ffd4cde1f61 string from the configuration after the achievement of a working release.
