How can I add Custom Multifield in scaffolding form AEM6.1

Avatar

Level 1

I am trying to add custom multifield in the scaffolding form but i am getting error in EXTJS.

When i tried to find dialog by getParentByType("dialog") or getParentByType("tabpanel ) i get null and code breaks.

If any one has any example for this it will be very helpful.

 

Thanks in advance.

EXTJS apis are meant only for dialogs (and on author) and not for a public facing GUI. You cannot use these APIs outside of a dialog. As Praveen stated - we have a lot of community articles showing how to use within a component dialog.

Are you trying to add the multifield to the scaffold form?

A multifield xtype is generally used in component dialogs. I have not seen them used in scaffold forms. I will look to see if you can use this x type in a scaffold form.

Can you share the purpose of using getParentByType("dialog") or getParentByType("tabpanel") , i have worked on many multifield but i guess you are using this in listeners...right?

I am not using it in listeners. I am trying to add mutifield custom into the scaffold form. In the dialog editor it works fine but on the scaffold form multifield is not working.

I guess these details wont be enough, can you share the dialog.xml and Ext JS here?

Basically you want to say that multifield containers are not supported in scaffold form.

Custom Multifield/Multifield you can add on scaffolding form, that is working for us.

Hi Scott,

We are going to upgrade from AEM5.6.1 to AEM6.1

We have used scaffolding a lot in 5.6.1 and i was wondering how will it work in AEM6.1

The documentation doesn't say anything about touch UI scaffold. Is there anything like this or we simply have to switch to ClassicUI to create and edit pages using scaffolds?

Thanks.
