AEM 6.5 multifield is not retaining the text field values

Avatar

Level 2

I have created an multifield component that  stores the  values as string[] in jcr content. But after storing the values when we came back to the dialog the values were not there. Although the values are available in jcr:content of the page.

Give this a try:

 

<labelsCollection
    jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
    sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield"
    composite="{Boolean}true"
    fieldLabel="Labels Collection"
    name="./labelsCollection">
    <field
        jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
        sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/container"
        name="./labels">
        <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
            <fieldset
                jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
                jcr:title="Label"
                sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/fieldset">
                <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
                    <label
                        jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
                        sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
                        fieldLabel="Label"
                        name="./label"
                        required="true"/>
                </items>
            </fieldset>
        </items>
    </field>

In the multifield cq:dialog values are stored in node format and not in String [].

<nav
    sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield"
    fieldLabel="Links"
    jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
    composite="{Boolean}true">
    <field sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/container"
            jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" 
            name="./multifieldProperties">
        <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
            <linkText
                sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
                fieldLabel="Link Text"
                jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
                name="./linkText" />
        </items>
    </field>
</nav>

Hi @BrianKasingli / @ravi_shankerj14 

 

I'm in a kind of same situation that the values are not prepopulating on my dialog, if I add composite = false in the multifield. I'm setting it as false as my old classic components had used custom mulitfield and all the values are stored in a array format. I'm in a process of migrating those component into touch UI and don't want to distrub the existing structure of array. 

 

Since the touch ui mulitfield provides the option to read the array of value with composite = false.I want to utilize it. Sadly, the values are not prepopulate the value. 

 

Do you have the recommendation for this? Your help would be very much appreciated here..

 

Regards,

Nanda
