"for p in group.get_players" order in html page

#1 by frafed

Hi all,

I want to show other players' information on the html page according to a specific order. Do you know if it is possible to get player in a specific order when using the command "for p in group.get_player" (for example, player 4, then player 2, then player 3)? This is how i set the code, but i am not getting the desired order. 

{% for p in group.get_players %}     

{% if p.id_in_group == 4 %}

{{p.contribution}}, {{p.x}} 
{% formfield player.x4 %}
{% formfield player.y4 %}


{% if p.id_in_group == 2 %}

{{p.contribution}}, {{p.x}} 
{% formfield player.x2 %}
{% formfield player.y2 %}
{% if p.id_in_group == 3 %}

{{p.contribution}}, {{p.x}} 
{% formfield player.x3 %}
{% formfield player.y3 %}


{% endfor %}

Thank you so much!

Generate the list of players in vars_for_template and reorder it there. Then pass this already ordered list to your template, so then you just need to do:

{{ for p in ordered_players }} …

thank you! And would something like {for p in group.get_players_randomly} work?

Potentially but I recommend doing it with vars_for_template.

Hi Chris, 

I have tried to use vars_for_template, but I don't think I am doing it correctly. This is how I set it, but it's not working

def vars_for_template(player):
participant.vars['ordered_players']= player.get.player_by_id(3), player.get.player_by_id(4), player.get_player_by_id(2)
return (participant.vars)

and then in the page i just call:
{% for p in ordered_players %}   
{% if p.id_in_group == 3 %}
