Hello,

We are trying to dynamically inject the options of a select field on classic ui dialog.

The options would be provided by a servlet and injected via an extjs plugin.

In touch ui we found this solution : Adobe Experience Manager Help | Dynamically updating Adobe Experience Manager TouchUI Dialog Select ...

It's works because there is the magic event : "dialog-ready"

Is there a similar event on classic ui ?

Thank you !

try usual 'dialogopen' event

Adobe AEM: Classic UI dialog custom validation

javascript - Drop down values selected in classic dialog doesn't show same value in touch ui dialog ...

CQ5 | Widgets API

you could add listeners like

<listeners
jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
afterrender="function(dialog){alert(dialog);}"
beforesubmit="function(dialog){alert(dialog);}"/>

For those reading this thread and want to know how to perform this use case on 6.4 -- see:

For 6.1 using Classic UI -- see this AEM HELPX Article -- Scott's Digital Community: Populating AEM Component Dialog fields using Sling Servlets

smacdonald2008 ,

In our case the options are provided by an ACS Generic List Page : Generic Lists

We are in a multi-site context, and each site has it's own ACS Generic List

We want to load the right options from the right site.

So to do that, we were coding a extjs plugin to calculate the path of the ACS Generic List and we facing an issue on how to inject the calculated path to the options attribute of the select in the dialog

On the backend - write a Java class that can read these values stored in the JCR and the servet can get them and then you can inject into the classic ui dropdown.
