Classic view dialog box update not showing up

Avatar

Level 1

In AEM - CQ 5.6.1 I'm having trouble with updating the classic view dialog box. If I add a new widget, panel, etc. to an existing component's dialog box, the changes don't get updated on the pages, where I'm using them.

I tried clearing browser cache, dispatcher cache, reactivated in treeactivation, but still the dialog box remains the same. I tried searching for any solutions, but haven't seen any. Any ideas what I might be missing?

We've found the solution:

Each component has a dialog.overlay.infinity.json file that represents the structure of the dialog. AEM uses this json file to create the dialog box.

So basically clearing the dispatcher cache with the /apps/../[component structure]/../dialog.overlay.infinity.json url and clearing the browser cache afterwards resolved the issue and the updated dialog box appears.

Thanks for all the help.

You are modifying you dialog via adding node in crxde or editing via drag and drop ? ( make sure you save in this case ).

Try to change a simple fieldLabel to ensure that you are working on same dialog you want to change?

I'm adding new nodes via crxde (not using using the dialog box editor, I tried that option as well, but didn't help).

I also tried changing an existing widget's property and unfortunately that doesn't update either. 

(Just to note: for local sandbox development, I use cq 6.0 and I don't have the same issue.)

There is something wrong with your AEM instance. Have you checked your log files?
