It would be very difficult but it could be done if you wanted to write enough code.

The values for each setting are stored in the params field for each instance of the module in the #__modules table. As it is possible to have more than one instance of a module your code would need to handle this to make sure you are updating the right module or all of them if that is your requirement.

Converting it to a radio check button is easy enough, just change to that type in the .xml file of of your other Module.

  • I actually want to edit the the published/unpublished state of a module from inside a component (say com_menu). I want to edit the the published/unpublished state of a module from inside of a menu item in com_menus. I have changed the title to make things more clear May 31 '19 at 12:46
