I have a matrix field shaped as follows:

  • MatrixField
    • Block ( just 1 blocktype )
      • Field1
      • Field2
      • Field3
      • Field4
      • FieldN

I want to loop through all the fields inside a block, check if the field is set and other stuff. How can I do it?

  1. Check if the matrixField is populated:

    {% if entry.matrixField|length %}{% endif %}

  2. There are two options to pull out fields from a block type.

    Option A: use a for-loop pointed at your Matrix field

    // If you want to output block of a certain type
    {% if entry.matrixField|length %} 
        {% for block in entry.matrixField.type('yourBlock') %}
            {{ block.field1 }}
            {{ block.field2 }}
            {{ block.fieldN }}
        {% endfor %}
    {% endif %}
    
    // OR multiple types
    {% if entry.matrixField|length %} 
        {% for block in entry.matrixField %}
            {% if block.type == "yourBlock" %}
                {{ block.field1 }}
                {{ block.field2 }}
                {{ block.fieldN }}
            {% elseif block.type == "yourBlock1" %}
                {{ block.field1 }}
                {{ block.field2 }}
                {{ block.fieldN }}
            {% endif %}
        {% endfor %}
    {% endif %}
    

    Option B: use simplified method of a for-loop

    {% if entry.matrixField|length %} 
        {% set yourBlock = entry.matrixField.type('yourBlock') %}
        {% for block in entry.matrixField %}
            {% switch block.type %}
                {% case "yourBlock" %}
                    {{ block.field1 }}
                    {{ block.field2 }}
                    {{ block.fieldN }}
            {% endswitch %}
        {% endfor %}
    {% endif %}
