How to create a custom container component with functional component in React and AEM Cloud SDK

Avatar

Level 1

Hey people, so I'm trying to create a custom container component with responsive grid or parsys inside of it, so I can have a dialog to change the container background color and still be able to put others custom components inside the container. I tried several tutorials but had no success, could someone help me on doing this custom container component using the functional components in React and the latest AEM Cloud SDK?

Hi @caiosheperd 

Set up your development environment:

Install Node.js and npm.
Install the AEM Cloud SDK CLI.
Create a new project using the AEM Cloud SDK CLI:

aem-sdk init
shell
Create a new functional component for your custom container:

Create a new file called CustomContainer.js in the src/components directory.
Implement your custom container component using functional components and hooks. Here's an example:
import React from 'react';

const CustomContainer = ({ backgroundColor, children }) => {
const containerStyle = {
backgroundColor: backgroundColor || 'transparent',
padding: '20px',
};

return <div style={containerStyle}>{children}</div>;
};

export default CustomContainer;
jsx
Create a dialog for your custom container:

Create a new file called CustomContainerDialog.js in the src/dialogs directory.
Implement your dialog using the Coral UI components. Here's an example:
import React from 'react';
import { Dialog, TextField } from '@adobe/react-spectrum';

const CustomContainerDialog = ({ isOpen, onClose, onChangeBackgroundColor, backgroundColor }) => {
return (
<Dialog isOpen={isOpen} onClose={onClose}>
<TextField
label="Background Color"
value={backgroundColor}
onChange={onChangeBackgroundColor}
/>
</Dialog>
);
};

export default CustomContainerDialog;
jsx
Use your custom container component in a page:

In your page component, import and use your custom container component. Here's an example:
import React, { useState } from 'react';
import CustomContainer from '../components/CustomContainer';

const MyPage = () => {
const [backgroundColor, setBackgroundColor] = useState('`#ffffff`');

const handleBackgroundColorChange = (value) => {
setBackgroundColor(value);
};

return (
<div>
<CustomContainer backgroundColor={backgroundColor}>
{/* Add your custom components here */}
</CustomContainer>
</div>
);
};

export default MyPage;
jsx

Build and deploy your project:

Run npm run build to build your project.
Deploy the built project to AEM using the AEM Cloud SDK CLI.
