AEM6.5 How to pass the value from Touch Ui Dialog's Select field to Datasource script of another Select

Avatar

Level 7

Hi ,

We are using aem6.5 for touch ui dialog .

Could you provide input as how the below could be resolved

 

In the Touch UI dialog, I have two 'select' components(say Select 1, and Select 2) and Select 2 get dynamically populated using the Datasource.

Here is how they are supposed to work:

A. User can select an business value (best-business OR no-business) from Select 1
B. Based on the user selected value from above, the selected value needs to be passed to datasource servlet using /bin/project/List of Select 2.

Question: How to pass the selected value of select 1 to a Datasource resourceType of Select 2 ?

 

<business
jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/select"
emptyText="Please select a option"
fieldLabel="Select the Business:"
name="business"
required="{Boolean}true">
<items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
<ecomm
jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
text="best Business"
value="best-business"/>
<necomm
jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
selected="{Boolean}true"
text="No Business"
value="no-business"/>
</items>
</business>
<appIds
jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/select"
emptyText="Please select a option"
fieldLabel="Select App :"
name="appId"
required="{Boolean}true">
<datasource
jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
sling:resourceType="/bin/project/List"/>
</appIds>

 

 

 

Thanks

@srinivas_chann1 I am not sure if I am getting your use case correctly. 

If Option 2 list is depend on option 1 list, why cant you make a ajax call on the selection of option1 and accordingly dynamically populate List2.

@srinivas_chann1 I also think the solution provided by @Nitin_laad is the right one. You can write an AJAX call on the selection change of the first dropdown and it should populate the second dropdown.
