How to get component path in component dialog.

Avatar

Community Advisor

Hi,

I've requirement where I need to populate component path in the component's dialog. For example, I've a component called 'Hello' and page 'XYZ'. I'm dropping the component into the page parsys. Then component path would be something: /content/XYZ/jcr:content/parsys/Hello

Now, when I edit the component 'Hello', I need to get path (/content/XYZ/jcr:content/parsys/Hello) in the dialog listener. Quick response would be appreciated.

 

Thanks In Advance

This is available as the path property on the dialog component: http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/widgets-api/?class=CQ.Dialog

Use a Sling call to get the current path and then write a custom xtype with JavaScript. Populate a JS variable with the current path and assign the variable to a control in the custom xpath control.

I was just trying this myself, so thought I would share the code based on Justin's suggestion above:

<listeners jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" activate="function(c) {console.log('this.path = '+this.path);}"/>

Thanks for  your replies, 
G.W, I tried your approach, but I'm getting obj.path as undefined. Here is sample dialog code: Actually, I need component path information at field levels inside the dialog tab. When I add the listener at dialog level I"m able to get the path but not at field levels.  Please let me know If I'm doing something wrong here:

<jcr:root xmlns:cq="http://www.day.com/jcr/cq/1.0" xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0" xmlns:nt="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0"
    jcr:primaryType="cq:Dialog"
    title="dialog"
    xtype="dialog">
    <items
        jcr:primaryType="cq:Widget"
        xtype="tabpanel">
        <items jcr:primaryType="cq:WidgetCollection">
            <tab1
                jcr:primaryType="cq:Panel"
                title="Title">
                <items jcr:primaryType="cq:WidgetCollection">
                    <title
                        jcr:primaryType="cq:Widget"
                        fieldLabel="Title"
                        name="./value"
                        xtype="textfield"/> 

                       <listeners

                                jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
                                activate="function(x){alert("this.path:"+this.path.toString());}"/>                  
                </items>
               
            </tab1>
        </items>
    </items>

</jcr:root>
