How to get same field on selection of two values in dropdown?

Avatar

Level 3

Hi,

        I want to show same field on selection of more than one value in drop down.

Suppose in dropdown, we have A,B,C,D

and i have one seperate node say 'title'

I want to show this field when i select A and when i select B. 

As showhidetargetvalue is single valued property. i am not able to make it for multi value. 

I tried to make string[] for showhidetargetvalue, but it is working only for one value .

 

please assist.

What AEM version are you using and is your component meant for TOuch UI or Classic UI?

see , In My dialog - there are only three widgets - choose (dropdown), name (textfield), pathselect (pathbrowser).

  • In dropdown - there are 4 options A,B,C,D.  (In properties, i have added 

                                                                class  = cq-dialog-dropdown-showhide

     
      cq-dialog-dropdown-showhide-target   =   .list-option-listfrom-showhide-target )
 
  • Textfield would be displayed on selection of  A or B.             ( showhidetargetvalue      string         a)   
  • Pathbrowser would be displayed on selection of  C or D.    ( showhidetargetvalue      string        c) 

I want to make them work for both values.

I tried by making string as a string[] type and tried to give multi value , it is accepting but then it is not even working for any single value.  like - ( showhidetargetvalue      string[]         a,b)     and         ( showhidetargetvalue      string[]         c,d)
