readLLXMLfile error in typo3 extbase extension

While TYPO3 update to TYPO3 6.2 and Pi-Based Extensions throws error of “t3lib_div::readLLXMLfile” which is deprecated in typo3 6.2.xx version

updating TYPO3 from 4.5 to 6.2 version many Pi-Based Extension adjustments a particularly annoying bug has stayed with us.

For me, this error has only be shown if a new content item in the backend should be created.

The error was in the PI1, PI2, … ” … wizcon.php “file and generated a 500 error.

Following error may show in your backend area

( ! ) Fatal error: Call to undefined method TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility::readLLXMLfile() in C:\wamp\www\typo3\jainish\typo3conf\ext\js_contact_form\pi1\class.tx_jscontactform_pi1_wizicon.php on line 72


t3lib_div :: readLLXMLfile is not supported in latest version of typo3. we have to replace those deprecated function to new function

To correct the problem, you have to replace both line.

$llFile = t3lib_extMgm::extPath('YOUR_EXTENSION').'locallang.xml';
$LOCAL_LANG = t3lib_div::readLLXMLfile($llFile, $GLOBALS['LANG']->lang);

// New Code 
$llFile = \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::extPath('YOUR_EXTENSION').'locallang.xml';						
$parser = t3lib_div::makeInstance('t3lib_l10n_parser_Llxml');
$LOCAL_LANG = $parser->getParsedData($llFile, $GLOBALS['LANG']->lang);

I hope this will work for you.

How to readout an image in a Fluid template and give it a click enlarge function in DCE typo3 + FAL

How to wrap image with link in DCE + FAL

For set link around image with same resource you have to use “<f:uri.image>” following example will help you more.

Your fluid template gets an array of FileCollection models,

Following example will show you how to output several images from the FileCollection and wrap with link with same image resource

TCA Configuration for FAL – File Abstraction Layer

    <foreign_types type="array">
        <numIndex index="2">






Template content (fluid)

<f:for each="{dce:fal(field:'gallery', contentObject:contentObject)}" as="fileReference" iteration="iterator" >
   <a href='<f:uri.image src="{fileReference.uid}" treatIdAsReference="1" />'  rel="gallery" title="" class="fancybox" >
       <f:image src="{fileReference.uid}" alt="" treatIdAsReference="1" class="icon" />

The loop run through the complete FAL image list.

The if condition in the treatIdAsReference is recommended because FileCollections returns different types of objects depending of the type of the collection.

Folder based collections returns the file directly, static based collections a file reference. With this condition both cases are covered.

This was for FAL – File Abstraction Layer.

Now we look for simple upload image [ Systems file collections ]

If you have use file collections and you have defined a field in DCE where you can select images than you can access the file name in the Fluid template.

The location where the image is stored is also defined in the TCA, which is mostly something like uploads/pics.

TCA Configuration for simple file upload


Note : Since version 0.11.x of DCE you are. Just add a group field, set allowed tablename to “sys_file_collection” and add the dce_load_schema option.

In the Fluid template you can write following script:

<a href="{f:uri.image(src:'uploads/pics/{field.yourPicture}')}" >
    <f:image src="uploads/pics/{field.yourPicture}" alt="" maxWidth="150" maxHeight="150" />

I hope this will work for you 🙂

How to add elements to the Content Element Wizard in typo3

The content element wizard can be fully configured using TSConfig.

The API described here should not be used for the purpose of customizing this wizard.

However for extension authors, it provides a way of registering their plugin with the new content element wizard.

Basically it is about adding a class reference to the $GLOBALS[‘TBE_MODULES_EXT’][‘xMOD_db_new_content_el’][‘addElClasses’] global array.

The keys in this array are class names and the values are the absolute paths to these class. The class must have a proc() method.

Here is some code from the “js_contact_form” extension, to register the “contactform” plugin with the wizard. First of all, the class is declared:

// add wizard icon to the "add new record" in backend
if (TYPO3_MODE == "BE") {
    $TBE_MODULES_EXT["xMOD_db_new_content_el"]["addElClasses"]["JsContactFormWizicon"] =
         \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::extPath($_EXTKEY) . 'Classes/Helper/JsContactFormWizicon.php';

The EXT:js_contact_form/Classes/Helper/JsContactFormWizicon.php file looks like:

 * Created by Jainish Senjaliya.
 * User: Jainish
 * Date: 13.06.2015
 * Time: 15:01
use TYPO3\CMS\Extbase\Utility\LocalizationUtility;

 * Class that adds the wizard icon.
class JsContactFormWizicon {

     * Processing the wizard items array
     * @param array $wizardItems : The wizard items
     * @return Modified array with wizard items
    function proc( $wizardItems ) {

        $wizardItems['plugins_tx_jscontactform_contactform'] = array(
            'icon' => \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::extRelPath('js_contact_form') . 'Resources/Public/Icons/wizard_icon.png',
            'title' => $GLOBALS['LANG']->sL('LLL:EXT:js_contact_form/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:plugin-title'),
            'description' => $GLOBALS['LANG']->sL('LLL:EXT:js_contact_form/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:plugin-description'),
            'params' => '&defVals[tt_content][CType]=list&defVals[tt_content][list_type]=jscontactform_contactform'

        return $wizardItems;

The proc() method receives the list of existing items in the wizard and adds a new one to it.

The first three properties (icon, title and description) are quite easy to understand.

The “params” property defines the default values to be added to the new record link so that the right type of content element (and plugin in this case) is already selected.

The entry added in the plugin list of the new content element wizard

The entry added in the plugin list of the new content element wizard

I have taken this example from Contact Form Extension from TYPO3 Repository. you may download and analyze this extension.

I hope this will help you more. Njoy 🙂 🙂
