AEM Responsive Grid with 0px height by Bear Cherian


In AEM when you create a new page component with a editable area that uses the responsive grid (wcm/foundation/components/responsivegrid) you might experience an issue where the editable area appears, but has no height, and is unusable. All you get is a thin blue line where the editable area should be.

The cause of this is a missing include. To initialize the AEM editing features, an JSP is loaded that initializes all of the editable areas, as well as some other things.

I tried the solution adding this JSP to my head libs. But my problem is still not fixed. 


Initially the parsys has no height


I have a sly tag like this

<div data-sly-resource="${tabParsysName @ resourceType='wcm/foundation/components/responsivegrid'}"


When I add a component the subsequent empty parsys has height


    <sly data-sly-include="/libs/wcm/core/components/init/init.jsp" data-sly-unwrap/>
