AEM 62 - Touch UI Path Browser Filter for Autocomplete and Picker Results

Goal


Add a filter function to the Touch UI Path browser widget to filter the results shown in autocomplete dropdown and picker columns. For autocomplete, the results returned as valid by the isValid() function are shown; for picker the results returned by isValid() are enabled (other column values remain disabled)

In the demo, Link to (path browser widget) of Image Component is automatically set to the current page path and the goal is to make sure user can select only the parent, current page path or sub paths

Demo | Package Install


Filtered Autocomplete Results



Disabled Picker Columns


Solution


1) Login to CRXDE Lite (http://localhost:4502/crx/de) and create folder /apps/eaem-touchui-pathbrowser-filter-results

2) Create node /apps/eaem-touchui-pathbrowser-filter-results/clientlib of type cq:ClientLibraryFolder and add a String property categories with value cq.authoring.dialog and dependencies to underscore

3) Create file (nt:file) /apps/eaem-touchui-pathbrowser-filter-results/clientlib/js.txt and add

                       pathbrowser-filter.js

4) Create file (nt:file) /apps/eaem-touchui-pathbrowser-filter-results/clientlib/pathbrowser-filter.js and add the following code

(function ($, $document, gAuthor) {
    var LINK_URL = "./linkURL",
        COMPONENT = "foundation/components/image";

    if(!gAuthor){
        return;
    }

    $document.on('dialog-ready', handlePathBrowser);

    function handlePathBrowser(){
        var $linkUrl = $("[name='" + LINK_URL + "']"),
            editable = gAuthor.DialogFrame.currentDialog.editable;

        //if not an image component dialog, return
        if((editable.type !== COMPONENT) || _.isEmpty($linkUrl)){
            return;
        }

        var cuiPathBrowser = $linkUrl.closest(".coral-PathBrowser").data("pathBrowser");

        if(!cuiPathBrowser){
            return;
        }

        //set the default value to current page path
        setDefaultValue(cuiPathBrowser);

        //handle inline autocomplete results
        extendOptionLoader(cuiPathBrowser);

        //handle picker columns
        extendPicker(cuiPathBrowser);
    }

    //extend picker to disable columns
    function extendPicker(cuiPathBrowser){
        var cuiPicker = cuiPathBrowser.$picker.data("picker");

        cuiPathBrowser.$button.on("click", function() {
            setTimeout(function(){
                if(!cuiPicker.columnView){
                    console.log("EAEM - could not initialize column view");
                    return;
                }

                extendColumnView(cuiPicker.columnView);
            }, 200);
        });
    }

    function extendColumnView(columnView){
        function handler(){
            var $items = columnView.$element.find(".coral-ColumnView-item"), $item;

            $items.each(function(index, item){
                $item = $(item);

                if(isValid($item.data("value"))){
                    return;
                }

                //remove href link to make it disabled
                $item.attr("data-href", "").css("background-color", "#AAAAAA");
            });
        }

        handler();

        columnView.$element.on('coral-columnview-load', handler);

        columnView.$element.on('coral-columnview-item-select', handler);
    }

    function setDefaultValue(cuiPathBrowser){
        //set the default path to current page path
        cuiPathBrowser._setInputValue(gAuthor.getPageInfoLocation(), true);
    }

    function extendOptionLoader(cuiPathBrowser){
        var optionLoader = cuiPathBrowser.optionLoader;

        cuiPathBrowser.optionLoader = function(path, callback){
            optionLoader.call(this, path, function(data){
                callback(dataFilter(path,data));
            });
        };
    }

    //filter results function
    function dataFilter(path, data){
        var filteredData = [];

        _.each(data, function(value){
            if(!isValid(path + "/" + value)){
                return;
            }

            filteredData.push(value);
        });

        return filteredData;
    }

    //if the search result is not sub path of current page path, consider it invalid
    function isValid(relPath){
        var pagePath = gAuthor.getPageInfoLocation();

        if(relPath.length > pagePath.length){
            if(relPath.indexOf(pagePath) !== 0){
                return false;
            }
        }else{
            if(pagePath.indexOf(relPath) !== 0){
                return false;
            }
        }

        return true;
    }
}(jQuery, jQuery(document), Granite.author));
