Child Custom Elements

I have a custom element called “Slider”

I also have a custom element “Slider Item”

Slider has a “sortable” control set up to allow slider items to be inserted.

I have successfully created the admin fields so I can do that part.

My issue is getting the “child” items to build my slider html.

How can one access the data in child sortable items?

indent preformatted text by 4 spaces

cs_register_element( 'full-width-slider', array(
  'title' => __( 'Full Width Slider', 'your-text-domain' ),
  'values' => array(
    'text_content' => cs_value( ),
    'slides'=> cs_value( ),
	'control_nav' => array(
		'full-width-slider' => __( 'Slider', 'your-text-domain' ),
		'full-width-slider:setup' => __( 'Setup', 'your-text-domain' ),
		'full-width-slider:design' => __( 'Design', 'your-text-domain' ),
  'control_groups' => array(
    'full-width-slider' => __( 'Full Width Slider', 'your-text-domain' ),
    'full-width-slider:setup' => __( 'Setup', 'your-text-domain' ),
    'full-width-slider:design' => __( 'Design', 'your-text-domain' ),
	'controls' => array(
			'label' => 'Setup',
					'options' => array(
						'element' => 'slider-item',
						'title' => __( 'Item', 'g-extension' ),
						'floor'   => 1,
						'capacity' => 10,
  'render' => 'my_element_render',

) );

function my_element_render( $data ) {

  extract( $data );
	echo '<pre>';var_dump($data);echo '</pre>';

  return 'content: '.$text_content;


Child element

cs_register_element( 'slider-item', array(

		'title' => __( 'Slider Item', 'your-text-domain' ),
		'render' => 'slider_item_render',


function slider_item_render($data){
	  extract( $data );
	//echo '<pre>';var_dump($data);echo '</pre>';
	$html = '';
		$html .= '<img src="'.$slider_item_image.'" alt="'.$slider_item_image_title.'"/>';
	return $html;
