Hi,

I need to check size of the list in sightly. I need to display UI only when it has more than 2 items in list. Any idea?

Thanks,

Arya.

Depending on the methods of your list-object you can do something like this:

<div data-sly-test="${yourList.size > 2}">

...

</div>

hi arya,

You can just the methods from the object, whether that is List, Array etc.

So if you have .size(), you can use .size. If you have .length() or .count(). You can use .length or .count.

Hope this helps.

Inside your list, you can use things like ${itemList.count}, but this only works inside data-sly-list:

<ul data-sly-list="${currentPage.listChildren}">

<li>${item.name} Page ${itemList.index} of ${itemList.count}</li>

</ul>

Use: ${myWCMUseObject.allColumns.size}

This answer is no longer valid. As far as I can tell, the only way to accomplish this is to create another method in the initialized bean that returns the size of the list.

// The WCMUse class' method that gives me an ArrayList

public List<String> getAllColumns() {

  List<String> allColumns = new ArrayList<String>();

  for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++) {

    allColumns.add("Test" + "-" + i);

  }

  return allColumns;

  }

 

  # sightly code that I am trying out ....

<sly data-sly-list.myList="${myWCMUseObject.allColumns}">

  <div data-sly-test="${myList.size > 5}" data-sly-unwrap>

  Heloo!!!!!

        </div>

</sly>

Hi Felke.

On trying the snippet as below:

    <div data-sly-test="${myList.size > 5}" data-sly-unwrap>

  Heloo!!!!!

        </div>

We get an error as:

Invalid types in comparison. Comparison is supported for Number types only.

Could you please throw some light on why this could be the case?

Thanks,

I also find it very helpful to use the Ternary Operator in conjunction with the size/length to optionally add classes to an element. Just another front-end tip.

<div class="image-grid-item ${(properties['imageTiles'].length > 3 && rowList.count == 3 ) ? 'image-grid-item_bigger' : ''}"> </div>

It indeed depends what kinds of object you are using for the list object.

Hi Feike,

Thanks. I have gone through sightly tutorials. But I didn't find this attribute. Actually we have size() for java.util.ArrayList. Can I use all of List methods like mylist.<ListMethod> ? Where can I find these tutorials? I have seen only count,first,last,index etc.

 

Thanks,

Arya.
