Hi I am trying to convert my existing jsp to htl. I am stuck at preparing valuemapresource which was included in jsp like below
ValueMap vm= new ValueMapDecorator(new HashMap<>());
ValueMapResource valueMapResource = new ValueMapResource(resourceResolver, resource.getPath(), "granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox", vm);
<sling:include resource="<%= valueMapResource %>"/>
I wanted to convert this above snippet to HTL using data-sly-resource. could you let me know how can i be able to prepare this similar resource in htl.
HTL is strictly presentation layer. There is no way to create objects or write any logic in HTL. You need a support class(Sling Model or Use class) to return ValueMapResource object. The returned object can be included in HTL.
You can simply create a node in crx/de of required resource type (here : "granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox") . You can add the properties to node, like here you're putting it in ValueMap and you can include that resource using data-sly-resource HTL syntax like below :
For more ways to include resources using HTL please refer : https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/experience-manager-htl/using/htl/block-statements.html#resour...
You need to create a java class for this. if you are looking to populate dropdown then the below article may help you.
