How to create multiple multifields under a multified

Avatar

Level 1

Hi,

I have a requirement to create a nested Multifield in AEM6.3, in which there should be two multifields inside. i have tried and able to get one multifield inside one multifield values by following "aem-experience.blogspot.in". Also tried creating multifield using resourceType = "granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield" for child multifield's and for the parent multifield with resourceType = "granite/ui/componentsfoundation/form/multifield". Here child values are stored as NODE_STORE properly. But the  parent values are not, so the multifield is not able to re populate the values. Please Help me with this issue. This is not working if u use ACS COMMONS/custom JS. I have tried giving coral multifield to parent also, then the dialog is not able to submit.
