Date-picker not retaining values in multi-field in AEM 6.4

Avatar

Level 3

I am using date-picker within a multi-field but when i am saving value in this date-picker and opening the dialog again, I am not able to retain the date-picker value. I have tried this in AEM 6.4

If anyone has faced similar issue, Please let me know what is required to make it work.

Regards,

Priya

Hi Arun,

I tried adding composite=true property but that also didn't work for me. Could you please share the dialog xml that you have created for this? Need to check if i'm missing something here.

Hi Arun,

Thanks. It worked for me. The problem was with resource type of fieldset that i was using. I was using "granite/ui/components/foundation/form/fieldset" which was not working for Richtext and datepicker.

Arun, do you have any idea how to make rte and datepicker work with multi-field using acs-commons? Because it's only working for me if i don't use acs-commons, and use composite=true instead.

Hi Priya,

I've no idea about acs-commons multifield, I always use Coral3/Granite multiplied component.

And According to ACS commons, you should use Granite components. I am not sure if you are same or any other acs commons Multifield feature.

But when are using coral multi-field, it's storing the multi-field data in Node structure. Is there any way of getting the data in JSON structure?

No, granite Multifield store data in nodes, For JSON store you need to use ACS Common Creating an AEM HTML Template Language 6.3 component that uses a Multifield

But you can read values from Node as well.Or If you need only JSON date you can you Java to read nodes and convert nodes date as a JSON and Store in component nodes.

Thanks

Did you watch the video and read the article. It covers everything you need to make this work. We show it working in the video!

IN AEM 6.4 - no longer use acs-commons multifield, Use granite/coral MF.

This is how granite/coral works - it stores it as NODE data as explained in the article. It does not use JSON.

Hi,

I suggest from AEM 6.4 - Please do not use ACS-COMMONS anymore. Please use coral/granite which is explained in the video from Scott.

Thanks,

Hi,

Yes i checked the video, actually i was trying to use the multi-field with acs-commons because I wanted to store the data in JSON form. But now it's working fine when I am using coral and it's storing the data in node structure.

Thanks,

Priya
