Usage

Terminology

In Donkeytail, the image asset you’re adding points to is called the canvas and the point entries you’re adding are called pins.

Templating

The following attributes are available from your donkeytail field:

  • canvas: The canvas asset element.

  • pins: Array of pins attached to canvas:

    • element: The pin element.

    • x: The left percentage value of the pin's anchor point in relation to the canvas (without % suffix).

    • left: The left percentage value of the pin's anchor point in relation to the canvas (with % suffix).

    • y: The top percentage value of the pin's anchor point in relation to the canvas (without % suffix).

    • top: The top percentage value of the pin's anchor point in relation to the canvas (with % suffix).

    • style: Returns the top and left percentages as CSS style properties and values.

      • For example top: 42.121%; left: 88.1337%;.

GraphQL

The following attributes are available from your donkeytail field when accessed via graphql:

  • canvas: The canvas asset element.

  • pins: Pins attached to canvas:

    • x: The left percentage value of the pin's anchor point in relation to the canvas (without % suffix).

    • y: The top percentage value of the pin's anchor point in relation to the canvas (without % suffix).

  • {entry, asset, user, category, product, variant}: The pin element.

Real world example

You’ll need to render the canvas asset yourself as you normally would within a template.

A real world example would likely have the canvas in a parent container with position: relative. The dots can then be set to position: absolute and their positions output using an inline style attribute and {{ entry.donkeytailField.style }}. Don't forget to use negative margins or similar to move your frontend marker’s point to the match the anchor point of the dot.
