How to open a component dialog with custom button or link?

Avatar

Level 2

Hi guys!

I'd like to open a component dialog when I click a button or a link. Could you please give me some pieces of advice how to implement it? cq:layout rollover and editbar are not suitable for me.

I've found out, that it is opened with this code:

CQ.wcm.EditBase.showDialog(this, CQ.wcm.EditBase.EDIT);

where this - is CQ.wcm.EditRollover object for a corresponding component. So all that I need - somehow create or get somewhere CQ.wcm.EditRollover object?

Thanks.

Take a look at the out of the box sample [1].  There is a link "Edit this entry" on click of it opens component dialog.

Thank you.

But I don't have the edit link there.

I'll try use cq:layout editbar and customize buttons view with CSS and JS.
