AEM 64 - Touch UI Nested Composite Multifield Using Coral 3

Goal


Create a sample component dialog using nested composite coral 3 multifield/libs/granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield

Demo | Package Install | Github


Multifield Structure in CRX



Multifield in Dialog



Multifield Storage in CRX



Component Rendering



Solution


1) Login to CRXDE Lite (http://localhost:4502/crx/de), create folder /apps/eaem-coral3-nested-composite-multifield

2) Sample dialog with nested composite multifield /apps/eaem-coral3-nested-composite-multifield/sample-nested-composite-multifield/cq:dialog

3) #17 composite=true is for outer composite multifield (./products) and #37 composite=true for inner composite multifield (./components)

4) Create file (nt:file) /apps/eaem-coral3-nested-composite-multifield/sample-nested-composite-multifield/helper.js, add the following code for reading stored nodes

"use strict";

use( ["/libs/wcm/foundation/components/utils/ResourceUtils.js","/libs/sightly/js/3rd-party/q.js" ], function(ResourceUtils, Q){
    var prodPromise = Q.defer(), company = {},
        productsPath = granite.resource.path + "/products";

    company.products = undefined;

    ResourceUtils.getResource(productsPath)
            .then(function (prodParent) {
                return prodParent.getChildren();
            })
            .then(function(products) {
                addProduct(products, 0);
            });

    function addProduct(products, currIndex){
        if(!company.products){
            company.products = [];
        }

        if (currIndex >= products.length) {
            prodPromise.resolve(company);
            return;
        }

        var productRes = products[currIndex],
            properties = productRes.properties;

        var product = {
            path: productRes.path,

        };

        ResourceUtils.getResource(productRes.path + "/components")
            .then(function (compParent) {
                return compParent.getChildren();
            })
            .then(function(components) {
                addComponent(product, components, 0);
            });

        company.products.push(product);

        addProduct(products, (currIndex + 1));
    }

    function addComponent(product, components, currIndex){
        if(!product.components){

        var component = {

            name: properties.component,
            compPath: properties.compPath,
            size: properties.size
        };

        product.components.push(component);

        addComponent(product, components, (currIndex + 1));
    }

    return prodPromise.promise;
} );


5) Create file (nt:file) /apps/eaem-coral3-nested-composite-multifield/sample-nested-composite-multifield/sample-nested-composite-multifield.html, add the following code for rendering data

<div>
    <b>64 Nested Composite Multifield</b>

    <div data-sly-use.company="helper.js" data-sly-unwrap>
        <div data-sly-test="${!company.products && wcmmode.edit}">
            Add products using component dialog
        </div>

        <div data-sly-test="${company.products}">
            <div data-sly-list.product="${company.products}">
                <div>
                    <div>${product.name}</div>

                    <div data-sly-list.component="${product.components}" style="margin-left:40px">
                        <div><b>${component.name}</b></div>
                        <div>${component.compPath}</div>
                        <div>${component.size}</div>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

  1. could you please share sightly version for the same nested multifield

  2. Thanks for sharing the post, After creating the dialog and opening it again, it behaves slightly different and does not render the correct heirarchy when click on Add. Do you know the reason for it. I am using AEM6.3 with above dialog (Coral 3)
