Coloring data dictionary fields in text assets


Level 1


Verbesserungsvorschlag – Zusammenfassung: Increase usability of text asset editor in AEM Forms by adding colors
Use Case: Text asset editing and data field handing in AEM forms
Derzeitiges/erlebtes Verhalten: Fields within text assets can have two different ways of behavior - user can add data or not. For a template author no way exists to distinguish the elements as both looks same
Verbessertes/erwartetes Verhalten:  Given that a text asset is edited and  fields out of a data dictionary will be added

When the field is added as "Locked", the field will appear in the text asset with red highlight color

When the field is added as "Open" the field will appear in the text asset with green highlight color
