I have a listener for a component on a page . When i try to edit the component 

 

<cq:listeners
jcr:primaryType="cq:EditListenersConfig"
beforeedit="function() {console.log('Test')"
afteredit="REFRESH_PAGE"
/>

The after edit  works fine and it refreshes the page after edit , but the before edit isnt working as expected . I have multiple components on the page and the new component should read a value from previous created component on the page .. I am trying to pick a value from last created component and use it in the newly created component. Am i missing something which is causing the beforeedit to fail , or is there any other way to achieve this?

Hi @AEMnewbie,

I think you can use jquery based dialog state function to accomplish your requirement instead of listeners here easily you can make a call to get the data from back-end an all list of the events you can find in @Nikhil's blolg at https://aemsimplifiedbynikhil.wordpress.com/2018/07/30/touchui-dialog-listeners-aem-6-3/

and one implemented solution you can find below:

Here we are making an ajax call to a servlet to read some data from a node in crx and assigning the same value to a dialog filed before edit.

 

Hope this will help.

@AEMnewbie ,

 

I see a closing "}" missing at the end of function. Try is that resolves the issue.

Hi @AEMnewbie ,

 

We had the same use case regarding the multifield. if you want to do it with the component-wise. then it would be difficult for you.

 

- if you want to use the last component content into the newly created then you will have to use the last authored component classes or if want to use custom class then granite:class on the field level would work.

- once you get the classes, use these classes to write a custom js.

- your component values are saved in DOM, now use js function queryselector OR queryselectorall and fetch those properties and set it to the new component.

- logic may vary with the use case.

 

This weekend we are coming with an article for this.

https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_document_queryselectorall.asp

 

Thanks,

Prince

Hi @AEMnewbie 

 

Please see an article on the listeners explained very well with example:

Hope this helps!

Thanks
