HTL Getting Property value from parent component

Avatar

Level 3

I have a component that has a certain property applied in a dialog. This component has a parsys for dragging in other components.

These 'child' components need to be able to read a property from the 'parent' component. How can this be achieved using the Javascript-use API?

Here an example:


"use strict";
use(function () {
    var parent = resource.getParent();
    var props = parent.adaptTo(Packages.org.apache.sling.api.resource.ValueMap);

    return props.get("jcr:createdBy","");

});

BTW I raised this issue to make the getValueMap() available, to save a line of code :-)

Thanks! This is perfect (minus the extra line of code of course). 

PS, I attended your sessions at Summit this year, really enjoyed them!
