Ok - we've finished a beta version of the dpe plugin, so anybody who'd like to give it a try please let us know how it goes! To use the plugin, just install the attached file, adjust the plugin parameters to your likings, enable and save. Then you will need to do a small tweak to your 'com_iproperty/views/property/tmpl/default.php' file. Change:
echo $this->p->description;
TO:
echo JHTML::_('content.prepare', $this->p->description );
(This has already been done in the next release (v1.5.5) but will need to be added to 1.5.4 in order to work).

Finally all you need to do is add the content plugin code to your main property description in the following format:
{dpe_energie 400, 25.2} -- where '400' is the energy consumption value and '25.2' is the CO2 emissions value.

If you only want to display one chart and not the other, enter 'null' as the value like:
{dpe_energie 400, null} -- this will display the energy chart but not the CO2 emissions chart.

Please provide feedback - thanks!

Hi Vinny Hi Everybody

Find attached the first DPE display: looks perfect!
A small detail: plugin header text uses bold characters whereas the footer uses normal text

Thanks a lot for your help.

In addition, if you haven't already do so, i would like to link you to the wiki:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Union_energy_label and here,
www.energy.eu/focus/energy-label.php

Also, the indication of the energy efficiency class of the real estate property became compulsory from January, 1st 2011.

Hi Vinny, lots of good work here. Having looked at what Gerard posted (as I have not tried to install it yet) I think there are a couple of small points to mention and get comments from everyone on.

So in order of importance (my humble opinion).......

1. The kWH/m should read kWhEP/m².an.
2. The kg/m should read kgCO2/m².an.
Note if you look at the attaced file you will see the format ie. the "EP" and "CO2" are written very small and the m².an. is important as it is the measurement over dimension and time.

3. The "official line" is that the actual number points to the band and is blocked in a black arrow?
Not too sure if this is taking things too far but the French love a bit of detail.
May I suggest the number is highlighted the same colour as the graph (and perhaps a thin black line linking them?)

4. Gerard may be able to answer this last one. Is "Logement" correct rather than "Batiment" ? probably as a Batiment could just be an open sided barn.

Cheers for your hard work so far, looking good. DAVID.

thanks for the feedback guys-- as Vin said, this is very new, so there's no doubt some cleanup to finish.

What is confusing to me is the way that within the EU there seems to be several ways to display these graphs-- the UK way, on a scale of 1-100, and the "other" way, which we built on advice from the users in this thread, who are mostly French I believe.

Here's a link to the UK graph style: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:UKHomePerform...ngChartsVertical.png

Is it the belief of the group here that we will require two graph types, one for the UK and one for 'Europe'?

Thanks for your help.
:woohoo:

Hi all - thanks for the feedback. Just some notes:

@david007 -

1. This can be adjusted in the plugin parameters - you can set the measurement
2. Same here - adjust the measurement in the parameters
3. We've added css classes to the divs that create the chart to allow you to add background images, etc that will suit your template. This would be the ideal way to add an arrow to the marker -- if we built it into the plugin there's a good chance it wouldn't display correctly in all user layouts.
4. The header and footer text can also be set in the plugin parameters.

@mammona - would linking the header/footer text to the wiki work? You can hard code a link into the header/footer parameters.

Thanks again for the feedback.
