How to inject page property into Sling Model using annotations

Avatar

Level 2

Hi everyone!

 

I would like to inject a page property into a Sling Model using annotations but I'm struggling. Like @ValueMapValue but for a page property.

 

Any ideas on how to do it?

Thanks!

Hi @bruno-bradach 

 

Page property is associated with the page and not to a component so I believe you cannot directly use inject or valuemapvalue to read the property.

 

However you can use the below annotations

@ScriptVariable
private ValueMap pageProperties;

@SlingObject
private Page currentPage;

 

which will read the properties and use the get method and retrieve the required property from the page.

 

Hope it helps
