HTL data-sly-test


Level 3

Is there a way to test if listChildren will return anything? Something along the line of: <sly data-sly-test=${item.listChildren.size > 0} />

You can call any method that has no arguments in data-sly-test.

In your case check if your item has these methods.

Thank you all! Your answers pointed me to a solution. I was able to test whether or not the item had children this way:

<sly data-sly-test=${item.listChildren.hasNext} />

This one did not work for me though the original check for item.children.size == 0 worked well

Just an update the data-sly-test="${item.children.size == 0} and data-sly-test="${item.children.size > 0} worked for me as intended.
