How to set default value in a Touch UI select element?

Avatar

Level 2
I am trying to set the defaultValue in a Touch UI select dropdown. Setting "defaultValue" in dialog.xml works in Classic mode, but not in Touch. Here is the relevant snippet from my component's .content.xml <alignment jcr:primaryType="cq:Widget" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/select" fieldLabel="Alignment" name="./alignment" value="option2" defaultValue="option2"> <items jcr:primaryType="cq:WidgetCollection"> <topLeft jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" text="Option 1" value="option1"/> <topCenter jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" text="Option 2" value="option2"/> <topRight jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" text="Option3" value="option3"/> </items> </alignment>

It seems that this is a bug with the granite select component (granite/ui/components/foundation/form/select).

defaultValue doesnt work in Touch UI.

If you want Option 2 be set as defaultValue. try using this 

 

  1. <alignment
  2. jcr:primaryType="cq:Widget"
  3. sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/select"
  4. fieldLabel="Alignment"
  5. name="./alignment"
  6. value="option2"
  7. defaultValue="option2">
  8. <items jcr:primaryType="cq:WidgetCollection">
  9. <topLeft
  10. jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  11. text="Option 1"
  12. value="option1"/>
  13. <topCenter
  14. jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  15. text="Option 2"
  16. value="option2"
  17. selected="true"/>
  18. <topRight
  19. jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  20. text="Option3"
  21. value="option3"/>
  22. </items>
  23. </alignment>

selected="{Boolean}true"

It worked fine for touch ui in AEM 6.3 but didnot work when inplace upgrade was done to upgrade to 6.5. Please advise.

Basically, you need to add 'selected' property which takes a boolean for the option which you want. by default it will be 'false'

I've added selected="true" to the second value in the dropdown, but the first value is still selected by default.

<horizontal jcr:primaryType="cq:Widget" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/select" fieldLabel="Horizontal Alignment" name="./halign"> <items jcr:primaryType="cq:WidgetCollection"> <topLeft jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" text="Left" value="hleft"/> <topCenter jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" text="Center" value="hcenter" selected="true"/> <topRight jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" text="Right" value="hright"/> </items> </horizontal>

if you are changing directly in the xml, it should be like

selected="{Boolean}true"

I am making the change directly in the component's .content.xml, but selected="{Boolean}true" hasn't worked either. It seems to always default to the first option.

I was never able to find a solution. selected="{Boolean}true" hasn't worked for me.

Hi Loki,

selected boolean true doesnt work to set a property as a default . Can you please guide on a solution to this.

Hi,

Checked selected={Boolean}true. works fine in AEM 6.1 with SP2 installed.

Hi,

in order to make it work isn't enough to add 

selected="{Boolean}true" 
in the option you want as default, you have also to set

forceIgnoreFreshness="{Boolean}true"

in the select node itself.
