Custom dialog component

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

I've seen that is possible to edit the dialogs through the dialog Editor in AEM. 

How can I make my own componentes for the dialog? Is that possible?

For example to make a color picker,  or a datepicker,  etc...

 

Thank you!

You use CRXDE lite and add JCR nodes and props to build dialogs. See these AEM community articles to learn how to build a dialog:

https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/custom_columns.html

and of course - you can build a custom xtype - which is a skill that you need as an AEM Component developer. A custom xtype is built with JS and AEM widget classes. See:

"How can I make my own componentes for the dialog"

Not sure what you mean by can i create a component for a dialog. Do you mean how to I build a dialog for my components?

When you build or modify dialogs that correspond to your AEM components- you typically modify nodes in the CRXDE lite. You can build a dialog to include date pickers and all the supported types. If you are not familiar with building a dialog for a component - see https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-touchui-component.html.

No, what I mean is that I want to create my own dialog components. For example if a text field is not enough for me, and I need an extra functionality into the textfield of the dialog of one of my components.
