Multifield in aem 6.3 Touch ui has some problem after submitting the dialog. while submitting, values are getting greyed/squeezed in unlike normal fields. I had a requirement to handle minimum fields author can author and had achieved minlinksallowed property. JS written to handle had a error message to display on submitting with a cancel and submit button. On clicking cancel, fields authored are greyed and user is not able to edit back the values. He is forced to delete the items and author from first. Attaching the screenshot for reference.
Also written specific for this component overrides all the component dialog submit button, which always prompts with submit and cancel button.
I have tested OOB definition-list component, which has multifield and it also behaves the same way. Can someone provide insights on this?
See this article:
When you click the checkmark button - the values are submitted to the Sling Model and the MF values are stored fine. I have never seen the functionality that you are describing. Are you using the Granite/Coral MF?
I don't have any issue storing the values in JCR . It is all happening perfect. when i do a validation check of minimum items authored, it throws a validation error message and the authored MF items are collapsed as show in screenshot above. So author is unable to edit back the items authored and he is forced to author from the start deleting the items authored already.
Am using coral MF.
The solution now for MF is to use granite/coral resource type. I recommend gonig through this entire doc: Building Experience Manager Components using Granite/Coral Resource Types
The last section shows you MF and it works nicely.
